    Dear Andrea,
    Can you tell us if the E-Cat SK that you are testing for direct electricity production already produces more electricity then that the control system is using at the same time?
    Thank you.
    Kind regards, Gerard

  • A.L.

    Dear Dr Rossi,
    Is the technology you are testing to make electricity directly from the Ecat based on a new form of photon capture system? It looks logic watching http://www.ecatskdemo.com

  • Ben

    If your search for the dorect electricity production will be successful, will you explain it by e development of your immense paper
    http://www.researchnet.com/publication/330601653_E-Cat_SK_and_long_range_particle_interactions
    that is the most read paper among all the publications og nuclear physics in the last years?
    Godspeed,
    Ben

    Dear Andrea:
    In the presentation we saw in http://www.ecatskdemo.com you said that the Ecat SK is already ready for commercialization. So, why now you say that it is not ready for the distribution and sales in the mass market?

    Hello A. Rossi
    I thank you for your empathy for us. We lived a terrible night with the fire of Notre Dame de Paris. More than a sadness, France today lives a national mourning like the Italians when La Fenice burned in the nineties. In this drama, he salutes the formidable work of the Paris firefighters who evacuated the site in order and who fought the flames all night long. The fire did not kill a victim despite the number of people in and around the site.
    We must also thank the donors who raised 400,000 € at the time I write these few lines. We can give on this site:
    https://www.fondation-patrimoine.org/

    Your E-Cat operates at temperatures of 1 eV, I hope you correctly calculate the fire risk.
    All my support for your commercial and R & D work
    Best regards
    Raffaele

    Maybe the world does not have a coal problem, but an evaluation problem: last year about 50 coal fired utilities have been terminated, but the US Energy Information Administration reported that in 2018 the coal export has topped the highest level ever: ???

    Dear Readers:
    I want to send to our French friends my expression of a profound sympathy for the very emotional moment we all passed through today when we knew of the devastating fire in the Cathedral of Notre Dame in Paris. I have been in Paris many, many times and I know that Notre Dame is the icon of the Spirit of the great people of France. I am sure that, as always, France will remake well all that has been destroyed, but what happened today has a global resonance: I feel like myself have lost for ever something.
    My strongest sympathy for all the French persons that follow these lines,
    Andrea Rossi

    Dear Andrea,

    Regarding your ongoing design & development of E-Cat > gas turbine > electric generators, from past comments I would understand that your eventual target would be towards the largest units possible for economies of scale in the production of electricity, the design and development for this I suspect will be multi-year, for near future use would you also consider the use of your E-Cats with smaller combined heat & power micro gas turbines?

    For example, the Italian company Ansaldo Energia has a micro turbine unit the AE-T100E that uses an external heat exchanger (intended for the bio-gas / solar concentrator market), it is likely that an external heat exchanger would be more easily designed for use with E-Cats and possibly more robust in operation being disconnected from gas turbine vibration.

    For application, this kind of small E-Cat powered combined heat & power unit could be ideal for commercial greenhouses in northern countries, commercial greenhouses can range from small to extremely large, for example one of the latest generation of greenhouses recently constructed in the UK just north east of London for the company Sterling Suffolk Ltd, has a greenhouse 54400 m^2 in area, the first of three, these will be heated by two 6.0 MW gas fired boilers, featuring hydroponics and specialist pink LED growing lights, with a target of growing 7000 metric tonnes of tomatoes a year – UK consumption of fresh tomatoes is over 490000 tonnes a year.

    Regards,

    Keith Thomson.

    Dear Andrea,

    You have mentioned that you have experienced some problems with the first SK reactor. What kinds of problems are you referring to:

    a) E-Cat reactor malfunctioning
    b) Control system malfunctioning
    c) Heat exchanger malfunctioning
    d) Remote control system malfunctioning

    Also, have you solved the problems that have come up, or are you still in the process of solving them.

    Many thanks,

    Dear Dr. Rossi,
    speaking about correcting the way of writing in English, I found this application very useful and easy to use:
    https://app.grammarly.com/
    it allows the real-time correction of typographical errors in single words and suggests the most correct grammatical forms in phrases.
    I don’t want to advertise. The application is free up to a certain level of correction and has to be paid for having the total correction.
    Kind Regards,
    Italo R.

  • Andrea Rossi

    CC:
    I wanted to learn to make boards myself because while I make them I learn better how to make corrections immediately as soon as I use them. It makes me faster in the prototypal phase and allows me to go deeper in “seeing” the electrons behavior and movements while I put down piece by piece their track. I started this modality recently, learning what is necessary and the results are good.
    Obviously when and if a board becomes serial, robots make it.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

    Szymon Blachuta:
    Very interesting comment. In Italy there is not that distinction, as far as I know, unless it has been recently introduced in the cyberjargon.
    Now that I know, I apologize with all our Readers that received “he he he” as an answer of mine to their yokes: the yokes were good, my English was inaccurate, but not voluntarily.
    Thank you for the correction: my English improved by means of errors correction. By the way, thank you for noting my efforts in this sense.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  • Szymon Blachuta

    Dear Mr Rossi,
    Your reaction to yokes is always “he he he”.
    In some languages there is a subtle distinction: “ha ha ha” after a good yoke, “he he he” after a bad one. How is in Italian ?
    By the way, I’m following you several years and I’m impressed how your English improved.
    My deepest respect,
    Szymon Blachuta

    Dear Andrea,
    Why are you soldering yourself the board of the Ecat SK prototype that makes (or should make) directly electricity?

    Hello A. Rossi

    After a few months of service, can you make an initial assessment of your first industrial E-Cat?
    Another question: Do you have an E-Cat in your lab that has been running for a year and will soon run out of combustible?

    Good luck for tomorrow’s tennis and I hope you will have a lot of fun losing (0-6)
    Best regards

    Dear Andrea,
    watching http://www.ecatskdemo.com and reading the experimental set-up in par 5 of
    http://www.researchgate.net/publication/330601653_E-Cat_SK_and_long_range_particle_interactions
    I noticed that the spectrum of the wavelengths of the radiations in the Ecat SK, considering also the minor peaks, is maximum around 650 nm
    Did you ever find higher wavelengths values ?
    Thank if you can answer,
    Kurt

  • Marco

    Dear Andrea,
    regarding Rick57 question and your answer, it seems that recoiling light from the ECat to produce energy with a PV cell would reduce it’s capacity of direct electric production?

    I thought that the light was a waste byproduct!

    If there was a misunderstanding, then i think that Rick57 idea was to put some PV cells around the ECat to get some electricity.

    How could this possibly impair ECat’s ability to produce direct current?

    Best regards, Marco.

  • domenico canino

    The time is ripe, the direction has changed.

    From the first of January 2019 the media around the world have been ordered to speak in an increasingly alarming manner of climate change, of renewable energy. After that since 2011 (look a little) all the big funds in silence have disinvested in the search for new oil wells. Now they are investing heavily in new energies and the media connected to them have the function of pushing in this direction. Electric cars, graphene batteries, hydrogen, etc. Dear Andrea, did you perceive that in your sector the direction has changed?

  • Brokeeper

    You are so welcome. I am very happy to help. Perhaps it could be applied for all internal environments.
    God bless you and your team.

    Dear Andrea Rossi,

    You posted ” it is surely possible, but it is a nonsense to subtract energy to a system that has a higher efficiency that the parasite system” when asked about using the emitted light to run photovoltaic cells.

    1, Does this mean that in your eCat-SK electric variant, the only outputs will be directly produced electricity and excess heat?

    2. If some light escapes, could that not be used to produce additional electrical power?

  • Andrea Rossi

    Brokeeper:
    I didn’t think about that. I will. Thank you for the idea.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

    Dear Andrea,

    Have you considered using the UV light from the E-Cat domestic model to disinfect house and hospital circulated air?
    With much respect,

    Dear Andrea Rossi

    1. Is it safe to touch the ecat sk blue exterior ( shown in http://www.ecatskdemo.com ) with a bare hand while it is in operation?

    2. If it is not safe, what is the surface temperature of the blue exterior.

    Thanks

    Bob Belovich

  • Andrea Rossi

    Rick57:
    a) it is surely possible, but it is a nonsense to subtract energy to a system that has a higher efficiency that the parasite system
    b) I am not able to answer now, but I don’t think so
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.
