  • Gian Luca

    Carissimo A.R.,

    In which range you will measure the electromagnetic fields emitted?
    With which instruments?

    Thanks

  • Andrea Rossi

    Manuel Cilia:
    During the presentation all the general data that can be of interest to our Clients will be given. Obviously, specific situations will need specific solutions. Please do participate to the discussion that will follow the video and the description of the Ecat SK.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  • Andrea Rossi

    Italo R.:
    Yes, I will answer the questions.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  • Italo R.

    Dear Dr. Rossi,
    You stated that during the presentation there will be a person following the discussions with the people watching online. May I ask if will it be possible talking also with you?
    Sincerely
    Italo R.

  • Dear Dr Rossi
    When do you think we will be able to get more technical information about the reactor. As you know I would like to marry the Ecat to a steam turbine to made electricity and use the waste heat to run commerical Aquaponics farms. Information like pressure and temp of the water as it leaves the Ecat and of course the COP would be very help. Does the efficiency of the system drop as it gets larger e.g. the COP of a 20kw unit compared to a Mw unit.
    I can sign over my first born child HaHa.

    Thank you we are all getting very excited

  • Andrea Rossi

    Frank Acland:
    As you know, we will talk of this issue diffusely and we will see very interesting things during the presentation.
    This will be probably one of the more fascinating things we will see, so let’s wait for the presentation of the Ecat SK. We will see the Ecat SK in a show room and we will see a video that has been already made, as you know, in a factory heated by the Ecat SK, where we have placed a camera in a strategic position to look at the plasma. We placed seven cameras in seven crucial points and, honestly, I think it will be worth the while to watch the 2 hours of the direct streaming.
    Thank you for the continue attention and respect that your team, has always dedicated to the work of our team. I recognize that EW is a blog dedicated to the LENR that deals with neutrality and professionality this theme.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  • Frank Acland

    Dear Andrea,

    In you answer to TheFutureIsNow, you stated that you have observed balls of plasma in the QX, can you tell us anything more about them?

    Many thanks,

    Frank Acland

    Jim:
    The persons in the studio where the presentation will be made are exclusively the ones that will work for the presentation itself and they are:
    1- myself
    2- one my collaborator
    3- the director of the medium we have chosen to organize and broadcast the direct streaming; he will also direct the discussion with the persons that will want to put questions during the direct streaming.
    The team that prepared the presentation is wider, because we made a very beautiful video ( or, at least, it is very beautiful to me ) that will be shown during the presentation, where will be seen an Ecat SK in operation in a factory.
    Soon will be given information about where to go to watch the direct streaming, how to put questions etc.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  • Andrea Rossi

    TheFutureIsNow:
    1- no
    2- n.a.
    3- yes
    4- I know what they are, but I am not “familiar” with this issue. I did not deal with them
    5- I am not familiar with this issue either. Interesting, though.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  • Jim

    Can you define better who will attend personally the presentation of January 31st and why others cannot attend?

  • Andrea Rossi

    Prof:
    Yes.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  • Andrea Rossi

    Charlotte:
    Thank you for your attention to our work. Yes, I think our strategy, for the time being, is the best possible, also considering that probably we will have errors to correct and remaining the owners of the plant shields us, with agreements that foresee the possibility of errors and the fact that our Clients are aware of this fact: since they pay only the energy that is delivered and they have always a back-up makes us safe in the initial period.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  • Charlotte

    Dear Dr Andrea Rossi:
    The fact that you are installing plants to sell heat, not to sell plants is a genial strategy, because:
    a. the credibility of your technology will depend only on the production of energy
    b. your competitors, so far able to realize nothing that works, will remain privy of models to copy. This is making them frenzy
    c. your profits will come exclusively from your production and this is more convincing than any other thing
    d. the pass-parole between your clients and potential clients will expand exponentially your business
    In one word: genial.
    Godspeed,
    Charlotte

    Hello Andrea,

    1) Have you detected any longitudinal ampere forces produced by the QX?

    2) If any longitudinal ampere forces have been detected, can they produce a force that could act upon the entire apparatus to produce movement?

    3) Do you ever observe balls of plasma in the QX?

    4) Are you familiar with the concept of longitudinal electromagnetic waves (vector potential with no magnetic component) and have you attempted to detect any such forces? What were the results?

    5) Are you familiar with Eugene Podkletnov’s impulse beam generator? It utilizes an extremely high voltage and high power impulse to create a plasmoid that travels from a superconducting cathode to a super conducting target anode (all in a hydrogen atmosphere). The result is that a powerful beam of force is produced that can penetrate brick walls a kilometer or further away. I would say that the QX may actually produce similar phenomenon.

  • Prof

    Are you still measuring the electromagnetic fields emitted from the Ecat SK?

  • Andrea Rossi

    Todd Burkett:
    Your guess makes sense.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  • Todd Burkett

    What is the cost to manufacture an Ecat SK with a rating of 20 kW complete with everything necessary to operate?
    My guess is around 2000 $.

  • Andrea Rossi

    Pekka Janhunen:
    As always, Dr Parkhomov is making interesting his work.
    Answer: no, I did not, but it is very interesting.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  • Dear Andrea,

    Firstly, happy New Year.

    Alexander Parkhomov and other Russian researchers have noticed that LENR experiments sometimes seem to cause strange-looking “tracks” or “scratches” on the surfaces of various test materials (see https://e-catworld.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/10/Strange-Radiation.pdf , slide 10 and forward). Parkhomov used old DVD disks as test materials, for example, and found that wrapping the DVD inside a metal foil from all sides prevented the occurrence of the strange tracks. To me, this indicates that the agent is some kind of electromagnetic wave; also, from the foil thickness versus skin depth one can derive a lower limit for its frequency. Maybe the emission is modulated, if LENR consists of micro-bursts of some sort, then the effect might even be rapid thermal expansion of the DVD plastic when a strong peak of EM radiation is absorbed by it… this is my speculation. Or maybe a wave peak is intense enough to cause local electric arcing in the vicinity of the plastic of the DVD, which is originally an insulator.

    With the E-cat, you have previously measured that it does not emit ionising radiation and no neutrons outside of the reactor. Have you tried to measure if it emits RF or microwaves that might cause similar remote material effects as Parkhomov had found?

    regards, /pekka

  • Andrea Rossi

    CC:
    Electron capture happens when radioactive atoms with excess of protons decay, if they have not enough energy to decay by a positron emission. I am not aware of LENR processes that use radioactive materials with excess of protons. To obtain “electron capture” starting from atoms that have not an excess of protons could be possible with energies that are unthinkable of in LENR. It’s basic mathematics. Very basic.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  • Andrea Rossi

    Earl:
    Yes and also how thie thermal energy dissipated is recoveredalmost entirely.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  • Andrea Rossi

    Chuck Davis:
    Yes, during the presentation anybody will be allowed to put questions. They who will not make public their names can use pseudonyms.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  • Chuck Davis

    Dear Andrea,
    From your answer i imagine the Ecat SK could fit in the space 8 ft long. I will return on this during the discussion in direct streaming on January 31st.
    Chuck Davis

  • CC

    Dr Andrea Rossi,
    Are you still convinced that the electron capture theory to explain the LENR is wrong?
    Cheers
    CC

  • Earl

    Dear Dr Andrea Rossi,
    During the presentation of the SK will it be possible to see the energy consume of the control panel, besides the consume of the Ecat?
    Thank you if you can answer,
    Earl

  • Andrea Rossi

    Chuck Davis:
    Difficult to say: I’d need constructive drawings.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  • Chuck Davis

    Dear Andrea Rossi:
    Do you think the Ecat SK can fit this space?
    Google : Siemens SP260D

    Francisco:
    Yes: during the presentation everybody will be allowed to send an email to an address we will explain and I will answer in direct streaming,
    Warm Regards,

  • Francisco

    Dear Dr Andrea Rossi,
    Will it be possible to put questions during the presentation?

  • Andrea Rossi

    Matteo Morse:
    Thank you for your suggestion and your attention to our work.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  • Matteo Morse

    I suggest for the control system this name: TOPO, because it is a cat-and-mouse system!
    I am an expert of advertising and PR and I’d be glad to help in the launch of the Ecat.
    Looking forward to streaming your presentation on January 31st,
    Matteo Morse, Chicago

  • 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,

  • 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.

    Antoine:
    1- Always
    2- every Ecat is supplied with a Sievert-meter and a bubble column
