  • Andrea Rossi

    G.C.:
    We make and sell heat. Our Clients can make with the heat what they want.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  • G.C.

    Dear Dr Rossi,
    Does the Ecat SK produce also electricity?

  • Tamekia

    Who will be present at the presentation in the room where the streaming will be made on January 31st? Will be present third party inspectors?

  • Chung

    Mr Rossi:
    Is there a possibility that the presentation of January 31st will be delayed?

  • Andrea Rossi

    Mary Poppins:
    Yes and in key roles,
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  • Mary Poppins

    Dear Andrea Rossi,
    Do you have also women in your Team?

  • Andrea Rossi

    Gerard McEk:
    We can vet this proposal.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  • Gerard McEk

    Dear Andrea,
    1. Would you consider a price reduction on delivered energy during the first year, if some preliminary customers would be willing to openly share details like used energy and received energy on the Web?
    Those customers would thus promote the energy savings and CO2 reduction using the ECat SK real time on the Web, something I believe many companies and governments would be very interested in, especially in Europe. This will help you to quickly and vastly increase your product sales.
    2. If not, why not?
    Thank you, kind regards, Gerard.

  • Andrea Rossi

    Prof:
    Yes, but I think that virtual particles, where the plasma has the due density,can behave like real particles for a time inversally proportional to their energy: if you have to make a wall, is it more efficient to cast the bricks delicately and slowly one upon the other, or try to cast them by a pitcher and a batter of the Red Sox ?
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  • Prof

    About your answer to Alain: the virtual particles do not respect that formula.

  • Andrea Rossi

    Alain:
    Yes, the equation is
    E = (m^2c^4 + p^2c^2)^1/2
    wherein:
    E = energy of the particle
    p = momentum of the particle
    m = mass of the particle
    c = speed of the light in vacuum
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  • Alain

    Dr Andrea Rossi:
    which is the equation consequent to the Restricted Relativity of Einstein that binds energy with the momentum of an elementary particle? I ask you this because it should be related to the theory you are working on, about which we had a hint at the Ecat QX presentation of Stockholm in November 2017.

  • Andrea Rossi

    Keith T.:
    Thank you for your insight and the consequent suggestions.
    Obviously the agreements we will make with the industries that will buy our service will depend on the specific situations.
    During the presentation we will not give information related to specific Clients.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  • KeithT

    Dear Andrea,

    With regard to your initial Ecat business offering, so far you have stated that the customer will only pay for the energy used, are you then paying for all other costs? In the case of packaged heat supply units (whether in a cargo container or on a skid) supplying liquid or gas process heat via pipework, I would expect that your company would pay for the design, sourcing of material & manufacture of the packaged unit, then the ongoing monitoring & eventual replacement of Ecat modules, however as you will be well aware of, there are other costs that will be incurred.

    Upfront costs for the transportation & installation of packaged heat supply units (can be simple or very complex), i.e. on loading at your manufacturing facility by crane, hired transport to the end users site, an installation team for supervising the offloading by hired crane (can be expensive depending on weight & reach), then the manoeuvring into position by skates and jacks, levelling (required for venting / draining of liquid pipework), the connecting pipework or ductwork supply & installation (& possibly support structures) then hook-up into the end users system, hook-up of an electrical power supply, link to customer control system (DCS) for start-up / shutdown / demand usage (do they call your monitoring team to switch on or off or are they allowed to control this directly?), internet link for your monitoring team, eventual Ecat packaged unit start-up, commissioning to adjust to the end users thermal requirements, end user training on how to operate, then final handover.

    There will be ongoing costs in addition to your continuous monitoring team & installation / service team, you have your product development team and development costs, and you will likely require extra engineering personnel to answer ongoing regulatory / customer technical queries & occasionally be on site with modifications / adjustments & surveys for potential new business.

    With regard to customer usage, it would be good to find customers that have continuous demand for heating, however a lot of industry is cyclic, customers may run plant for a campaign until a target is met then shut down for a period, processes may operate on a cycle of upstream thermal processing use for a period before shutdown then downstream processing then back to upstream again, the customers use may be seasonal with winter usage then summer shutdown. During all of this you would have the ongoing costs of monitoring the plant when it was running producing heat, plus ongoing costs monitoring the plant when it was shutdown to ensure no one was tampering.

    It may be that you have to consider transportation and installation as a cost package that eventually has to be chargeable to a customer, also rental of equipment to cover ongoing monitoring and maintenance / service costs, then on top of this your tariff for heat supply. Also if the customer changes his mind or they are taken over by someone you consider as a competitor, or if the customer goes bust who will pay for the removal from site costs.

    For your commercial launch, will you be providing details of the kind of customer you are seeking i.e. is it large industrial customers who would use a heat supply package or would you accept smaller users of hot air i.e. HVAC in buildings, grain dryers for farmers, greenhouses, etc. Preferably it would be industrial customers with continuous usage of heat, customers that would be within easy transport reach of your current team (so unlikely at this time to be Alaska or McMurdo station in Antarctica). You may have to consider carefully some of the initial potential customers as some of the most eager customers seeking to reduce their costs may be the ones living on the edge of financial viability.

    Regards,

    Keith Thomson.

    Adrian Hereford:
    The cases are two: either yes, or not.
    Since in the first case there should be obviously a robust NDA, in both cases the answer would necessarily be “no”, with 50% of probability to be a “true” lie.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  • Andrea Rossi

    RR:
    There are different temperatures in different zones. When applying the Boltzmann formula we consider only the surface of the core, that in an Ecat SK is about 0.5 cm^2 and is where all the energy id produced.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  • Andrea Rossi

    Antoine:
    1- Always
    2- every Ecat is supplied with a Sievert-meter and a bubble column
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  • Antoine

    Dear Andrea,
    1-Do you always constantly measure the radiations emitted from the Ecats when they operate?
    2- if yes, which kind of instrumentation do you use?
    Thank you if you can answer,
    Antoine

  • RR

    Dr Andrea Rossi,
    Is the temperature of the plasma in the Ecat uniform, or are there different temperatures?

  • Adrian Hereford

    Are you in contact with military concerns interested to your technology?

  • Andrea Rossi

    Gennady:
    Thank you for your kind wishes and Happy New Year also to you and your family!
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  • Gennady

    Dear Andrea,

    I wish you and your family a happy, healthy and prosperous New Year.

    Also Looking forward to exciting January 31st presentation.

    Kind Regards,

    Dear Dr Rossi,
    A happy 2019 to you and your team!
    Maybe this can interest you:
    researchers in Japan have engineered an inexpensive flexible material that could help harvest heat energy that otherwise is wasted. Here is the link:

    Greg Daigle:
    Thank you for your opinion, but let me observe that to say the name, but not the address is like to hide an elephant behind a fig leaf.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  • Dr. Rossi,

    From having helped launch a software-as-a-service product, I can tell you that testimonials from early adopters is very important for increasing your base of clients. If early adopters choose not to be identified or are self-identified but are not recognizable names in industry, adoption rates may not be optimal. I hope the demo client ultimately chooses to self-identify (even if their exact location remains unknown).

    Warm regards,
    Greg Daigle

  • Andrea Rossi

    Norman:
    The Ecat is based on low energy nuclear reactions. More than this I cannot say. We are working very hard on the theoretical side of the issue to define precisely the process under a theoretical point of view.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  • Andrea Rossi

    Robert:
    The QX had an overheating problem that forced us to restrain its power, so it was reliable after such restraining. Like to have a car that can reach 100 mph, but reliable only under 20 mph.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  • Robert

    Dear Dr Rossi
    I saw on You-tube the video of the Ecat QX presentation of Stockholm last year.
    Very interesting and well done, but I want to ask you a question, if you allow: was that already a reliable apparatus?
    Cheers
    Robert

  • Norman

    A very simple, “yes or noo” kind question: do you think that nuclear fusions are made in the Ecat?

  • Andrea Rossi

    Anonymous:
    My comment is this: the mother of the imbeciles is always pregnant.
    Yes, in our Great Team we have also Afro-Americans in key roles.

    Dr Andrea Rossi:
    About scientific developments: on the New York Times it has been reported a lecture of the DNA pioneer James D. Watson, who reaffirms, giving scientific evidence, that his studies on the DNA gave evidence that the black people is less intelligent than the white: do you have an opinion ? Is some black person working in your team?

  • Andrea Rossi

    Trevor:
    Thank you. We had to make http://www.ingandrearossi.com to balance the fact that now and again some troll pulls out my past, about events of almost thirty years ago from which I have been eventually acquitted.
    I cannot every time defend myself, after thirty years and a calvary, so I wrote it and ignore the trollades and the Rock and Troll hits: who wants to understand OK, who wants not to, too bad.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  • Andrea Rossi

    Frank Acland:
    Happy New Year to you and all the Readers of Ecat World.
    The answer is yes.
    Warm Regards,

    US_Citizen71:
    Happy New Year to you and your family!
    The experimental work we are conducting has the goal to find a solid theory behind the effect.
    The work is on course and we have not matured yet a series of answers to our questions.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  • Trevor

    Dear Andrea:
    I spent part of these holidays to read http://www.ingandrearossi.com
    It is very inspiring and impressive: a story of resiliency to keep as a model.
    Godspeed for the presentation of the end of this month: the beginning of the industrial use of LENR is HISTORY.

    Happy New Year to you and your staff!

    I am excited to see what the new year will bring in the form of your upcoming demonstration. While we are waiting I was wondering if you could answer a question.

    In the past you had believed that the following was important to heat generation in your reactors.

    Li7 + p -> Be8 -> 2 He4 + E

    Is that still the case with the LX and its bigger brothers?

    Highest Regards,

    US_Citizen71

  • Frank Acland

    Dear Andrea,

    Happy New Year! I hope it is a good one for you and your family.

    For the E-Cat currently operating in an undisclosed location, have all the necessary legal authorizations to operate it been obtained?

    Best wishes,

    Dear Andrea,

    HAPPY NEW YEAR!

    You wrote on January 1st, 2016 at 00.00.01 AM about an inspiring dream you had days earlier:
    “Several nights ago, I had a dream. The E-Cat X had been produced in billions of pieces, each of them assembled with others in various combinations to make public lamps: a town was totally illuminated by the E-Cat X and from every lamp a network of pipes and of wires was able to distribute heat and electricity to the houses.

    In that town there were about 1 million lamps each of them of 500 watts, consuming about 50 watts; consequently, there were 450 MWh/h produced, of which about half were turned into heat distributed to the houses through a network of well insulated pipes, running underground, like optic fibers, the other half was used to light the town and to distribute electricity to the households. The cost of the E-Cat X was around 50 $/kW of power, due to the production of billions of pieces per year in all the world, with tens of thousands of jobs. Less taxes were paid by the people, due to the saves derived from low pollution and low energy cost for public services. Millions of persons were also earning money selling E-Cats and every owner of E-Cats was saving money in utilities (electricity, heat, light).”

    Now, three years later, are you and the team on course in fulfilling this dream? Have you developed a conceptual model how this city may look in the future? Any guesstimate on how long this vision may be fulfilled? Have you had any other revelations lately?

    Again, Happy New Year to you and your team!
    Brokeeper

  • Joseph Fine

    Andrea Rossi,

    Best Wishes to you and your Team for a Happy and Healthy New Year.

    And may this New Year be the start of a Happier New Future.

    Try to get some work in tomorrow. There won’t be 366 days until 2020.

    Continuing regards,

    Joseph Fine

  • Andrea Rossi

    Gianvico:
    Thank you for your wishes and Happy New Year to you as well,
