    Dear Andrea,
    1. Is my assumption right that the heat, generated by the control system, is somehow added to the heat production side of the Ecat?
    2. If this is true, will you be able to do that also if a customer wants closed loop high level heat (say 500 deg. C minimum input temp.; 1000 deg.C. Maximum output temp.)?
    3. What instrument(s) will you use to determine the produced quantity of heat during the test @1-31?
    4. Have you already found a customer willing to openly publish the performance of the E-Cat SK during the first year?
    Thanks, kind regards, Gerard

    We have three possible scenarios after January 31st 2019 presentation http://www.ecatskdemo.com
    1- the presentation will confirm success, but the society as a whole will continue to ignore it
    2- there will be a strong hostile and disparaging activity against Andrea Rossi: oil, coal, gas, wind, solar, nuclear, hot fusion are going to continue to get enormous funds and they can easily kill this technology and the man behind it
    3- a large majority of educated world decides to help the development of this technology to fight against the degradation of our environment.
    My question is: which is the best scenario for the wellness of mankind?
    Best Regards,
    Tobbe

    Michel:
    The measurements will be shown during the presentation.
    The carbon dioxide produced by the Ecat during its operation is zero.
    The amount of carbon dioxide produced to manufacture an Ecat ( the so called “grey energy” ) is the same that a 20 kW Ecat saves in a couple of days of operation, vs a supposed life of 20 years.
    Warm Regards,

    We will draw the electricity needed from the Ecats from the outlet of the Clients, since we cannot make contracts with the providers to sell us electricity in a place that is not ours or rented by us.
    Our billing system will be very simple and clear: we and the Customer will put a wattmeter along the line that supplies electric energy to the control system, to read the Wh per month consumed by the whole Ecat System ( control panels plus Ecats ), so that we will have the worth of the electricity consumed by the Ecats; the bill will compute the price of the thermal Wh generated by the Ecats and the price of the electric Wh consumed by the same Ecats: the Customer will obviously pay the difference between the price of the thermal energy generated by the Ecats and the price of the electric energy consumed from the same Ecats.
    Note: we will bill also the thermal energy recovered from the cooling system of the control panel: such energy is recovered with a COP close to 1.

    Hello DR Rossi

    Maybe you can get some tips from this
    Richard Strauss video to help you
    conduct the E-Cat SK demonstration.

    Dear Andrea,
    I suggest as a name for the control system “Recrudescence”, meaning “breaking new afresh” like a new beginning.

  • Mike Casbon

    Dr Andrea Rossi,
    I appreciate the strategy you defend your IP with.
    I also hope a sequel book after “An impossible invention” will be published with the description of the incremental improvements until the realization of the Ecat SK.
    I think such a book will inspire future generations of technicians and scientists.
    Thank you,

  • W

    Dear Dr Rossi,
    Will the plants that you will install in the factories of your customers consume electricity from the outlet of the customers or from the grid with your own accounts?
    If from the client’s plug, how will be calculated the bill?
    W

  • Michel

    Dear Dr Rossi,

    A complete, uncensored measurement of the electrical input power is required, which method will you use :
    – power measured at the input of the control system (true rms Watt Meter)
    – power measured at the reactor inlet (simultaneous acquisition of U and I)
    – during this presentation, will there be an oscilloscope, showing both the input voltage and the input current of the reactor?
    – since your reactor is in operation, the customer probably made his own measurements: will he make a communication about these measurements, and therefore the real gain on the electricity bill for the thermal energy produced ?

    I will follow with interest the presentation of the new reactor, January 31, hoping that my questions will be retained. I think there will be many from all those who follow the development of the “E-cat”.
    Sincere wishes for your project, humanity urgently needs low-carbon energy sources (By the way, did you evaluate the carbon footprint of the reacteur, manufacturing/while running ?

    Dear Andrea,

    Here is a link to an article about the “Super Tube” concept. The author combines a number of different principles from various inventors to come up with what he believes would be an optimum design for a device that taps into the vacuum by producing fast ion surges in the “negative resistance” regime. He incorporates ideas such as a hollow cathode (the Russian psudospark discharge concept), radioactive electrodes (for pre-ionization of the gas to allow a lower starting voltage and transition to the negative resistance phase), and even specific circuits to capture the back spikes and convert them into electricity. In other papers he documents how the same concept of extracting positron-electron pairs has been theorized to take place in cavitation of argon filled bubbles in a liquid during ultrasound which produces a blue light.

    Eric Ashworth,

    I do not believe in the vacuum truly being empty. I subscribe to the Dirac Sea concept in which space devoid of what we consider ordinary matter to be full of electron positron pairs (some scientists simply refer to them as photon pairs). This sea of electron positron pairs constitutes a kind of superfluid “aether” which contains tremendous potential energy.

    I’m also fascinated by the concept of vacuum polarization in which electron-positron pairs can be made to emerge from the aether.

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vacuum_polarization

    I tend to think that it’s plausible that in the SK could be extracting electron positron pairs from the Dirac Sea (or aether) as a source of energy. For example, rapid accelerations of charged particles can create powerful electric fields that can polarize electron-positron pairs, pull them out of the aether, and make them appear as ordinary particles. Since it’s accepted scientific fact that the double layer of a plasmoid such as those produced in a pulsed direct current discharge can suddenly accelerate ions, I’m thinking that during this process positron-electron pairs could appear. The positrons would annihilate with electrons in the plasma producing a source of energy.

    If some quantity of electron positron pairs are being extracted from the vacuum, then a certain percentage of the power output of an SK would be from nuclear reactions occurring between the fuel placed inside and another percentage would be from the electron positron pairs extracted from the aether.

    Here is a totally made up and hypothetical example.

    Percentage of the energy output resulting from fusion reactions between H, D, Li, Al, Ni: 50%

    Percentage of energy out resulting from the extraction and annihilation of electron positron pairs from the Dirac Sea: 50%

    I would like to ask you for your wild guess as to the proper percentage, if any energy is coming from the vacuum at all.

    If I haven’t made myself clear I apologize.

    Dear Dr. Rossi,

    Supposing you get a new customer that have an existing own system of heating in his facility. Installing the new system with E-Cat will requires costs.
    Question: who pays for these costs:
    1. Leonardo
    2. The customer
    3. Both, in fractions depending on the contract.

    Sincerely,
    Italo R.

    1- average/ssm operation
    2- 1 eV
    3- the modulation of the energy generated is made by on/off series, the temperature is always 1 eV
    Happy and Healthy New Year also to you,
    Warm Regards,

  • Joseph Fine

    Dear Andrea Rossi,

    In the past you have said the ‘temperature’ of the core of the E-Cat reaches 1 eV (or about 11,600 deg K).

    1) Is this an average temperature during normal operation, self-sustained operation or a maximum temperature that should not be exceeded?

    2) What is the initial temperature following normal startup (for example, ten minutes after you push the START button) ?

    3) Does core temperature reach 1 eV if the E-Cat produces only 10% of rated power, or is this temperature reached at 90-110% (??) of rated power?

    Happy and Healthy New Year,

    Joseph Fine

  • Italo R.

    As it is important writing correctly the name of things and symbols (ie we must write kW and not KW or Kw), I think that we should yet determine the right way to write the name of your invention:

    1 – E-Cat
    2 – E-cat
    3 – ECat
    4 – Ecat

    Sincerely,
    Italo R.

    @TheFutureIsNow ,
    Although the question was not directed towards myself but I am fascinated by LENRs and your question is with regards an interesting topic. Energy from the vacuum. Vacuum refers to total emptiness, which I do not agree with, with regards sub atomic physics. As the sub atomic runs out to the absolute plank length with regards the Astro and not the terrestrial, which does not do so, the enclosures within on the Astro become identity systems due to like repels like i.e. event horizons maintain stability/identity within the overriding Astro systems, which thereby provides energy from the the vacuum being Astro, LENRs are not Astro physical events but are within the confines of the terrestrial physical and therefore LE Nuclear reactions are lower reactions being more negative i.e. long wave but nevertheless very energy efficient with regards the length of their wave and the subsequent velocity and interactions of the wave. LENRs are soft sub atomic energy reactions. Regards Eric Ashworth
    P.S. I do appreciate being corrected because this subject at present is a learning curve.

  • TheFutureIsNow

    Dear Andrea,

    If you had to make a guess, what percentage of the power produced by the SK is from LENR and what percentage is extracted from the vacuum?

    BIG DISCLAIMER: If Andrea Rossi answers this question I am asking him for a guess and his answer should not be taken as proven fact.

    If the QX does extract power from the vacuum, it is even a more significant discovery because it proves the vacuum can be harnessed for the benefit of humanity.

    @ Brian and Leanne Balding

    Recall when Video Cassette Recorders came to market, there was the Betamax vs VHS format wars. VHS won and Betamax lost everything.

    Elon Musk opened his battery charging technology patents to those(including Big Auto) who wish to copy it without legal consequence. Not his Tesla car.

    Why would Elon Musk do this? It was “Self Interest” of course. Having no standard for charging stations and Big Auto likely to set that standard eventually(Tesla being the small fish), Musk was making a preemptive strike to influence that standard.

    In the details. One must copy the charging technology precisely with no deviation what so ever to avoid legal consequences. Thus by setting a standard, He avoids becoming the Betamax of charging technology.

    In addition, Tesla has been building charging stations for their cars around the country. It’s an expensive tho necessary process. Allowing others to copy his technology spreads that cost and increases the number of charging locations at a faster pace. Note Elon Musk is in the EV business, not charging stations. These will eventually be provided by 3rd parties, the current gas station/convenience stores.

    Bear in mind, If Big Auto sets the standard different from Tesla’s, Tesla could be crushed. No one wants a car that can only be charged at home. And bear in mind, Big Auto is a competitive market. Crushing competitors is just business. Tho this sounds harsh(and IS), without these competitive markets, likely we wouldn’t be on the internet. Your $400 laptop would be near $5000. There would be no reason to find cheaper ways to produce product or cut costs.

    Andrea offers heat at a 20% discount. When competitors come along, he will need to find ways to become even cheaper to survive in business. Rossi is very aware of this.

    Wishing you and Andrea and his team team all the best,

    Hot regards,

    Dan C.

    The babblers of the Rock and Troll music need logic for dummies, they don’t realize the struggles such innovative technology faces. In my work I come across situations like this all of the time, the most recent being a new type of chimney. One day the science establishment will realize their mistake, ​roll out the silver rug, and make the babblers pay.

    Yuri:
    You are right, the Customer must accept the remote control made from us. Every Ecat is supplied by a red mushroom emergency botton by which it can be stopped onsite, independently from the reason. The operator that will stop the Ecat will send us immediately a warning and will ask us when to restart it.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  • Yuri

    In the list you put in the answer to Eike we must consider another point: the customer must accept that the control is made from your company in remote mode.
    How do you concile this if in case of emergency not dependent from the Ecat, the same Ecat has to be stopped immediately?
