    Terence Woodbine:
    I prefer not to comment the replications, and the work of the competitors either. This answers also to other comments I received on the matter.
    I share your wish.
    Warm Regards,

    Klas L:
    Thank you for your attention.
    I rate our progress 7 for every year; we could have an exponential raise to 10 this year , if the E-Cat X will continue like it is working now.
    About the new website http://www.ecat.com it is heavy, but it must be heavy, to be nice and complete; if the connection is not fast, it takes patience to scroll through it. We are trying to eliminate something to make it slimmer, but it is not easy without touching the quality.
    Thank you also for the suggestion, though.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

    Dear Andrea Rossi,

    After reading the first article on E-Cat in Ny Teknik, January 20th 2011, I
    became interested.
    After hearing you live present Hot Cat first time in Zurich I became convinced
    but also quite unsure about the time you would need to make a real product.

    How do you yourself rate your progress after that compared to your
    expectations at that time?(scale 1-10)

    Regarding ecat.com the last progress is impressive, just one comment :
    You and I are born the same year and I often have to use the zoom function
    on my android tablet (Samsung) to read text.
    This works fine on rossilivecat and most other sites but not yet on ecat.com.

    Finally, let us all hope that the cats behave well also the remaining weeks to go.

    Best regards
    Klas L

    Dr Andrea Rossi:
    After your US Patent publication many replications have been made of your apparatus by scientists and Physics institutes from all the world: Parkhomov ( Russia), China Atomic Institute ( Popular Republic of China), Brillouin ( they copied your Hot Cat and made a third party validtion with the presence of MIT Professors in the Capitol Hill of Washington DC USA); some attempts of replication have been unsuccessful.
    Which do you think are the best replications made so far?
    I wish you that in the year 2016 we’ll see the E-Cats off the shelf:
    Godspeed,
    Terence

    Sometimes I wonder about the direction of my life and where it will go. I question myself and my decisions. One thing I don’t question is giving support to people who dare to dream and dare to make those crazy dreams a reality. I look forward to hearing your results and my support will not waiver regardless of the outcome.

    Just to add some data to the “ecat.com” scrolling issue:

    – On Firefox, the performance is very bad. If I scroll down, it “stutters” badly (pauses for a full second, displays a couple of inches of new page, pauses a second, etc.). This happens whether I scroll down, or scroll back up (where everything should already be in the cache).
    – On IE, it scrolls as smooth as butter. No pauses at all.
    – On Chrome, it stutters, but not as bad as on firefox (1/4 second pauses, instead of 1 second).

    I’m in the US (New Mexico), I tried it on 2 machines (Win7 and Win10) and the results were the same.

    The web page is *beautiful* on IE, but it’s painful to access on Firefox. All, in all a super job & hopefully the fixes for Firefox & Chrome won’t be a big deal.

  • Dear Andrea.

    AA and AAA batteries are suitably encased and this makes it safe and convenient for users to get them to specialised handlers for recycling when they are depleted of charge. In some places there are dedicated bins in supermarkets for this activity. They are also small so that there is no difficulty in transporting them to these bins. A very sensible ,safe and convenient system!

    Since your E-Cat products seem to use a wafer construction, and of some size I might add, would you say that these will be ,like the batteries, suitably encased so as to emulate the system described above, with no worries about personal contamination during transport to a recycling portal?

    Have you thoroughly investigated the processes that various countries have instituted so that safe and easy disposal of said wafers can take place by the users themselves rather than having to make somewhat irksome efforts to get them to some recycling factory? Since you hope to go worldwide with your products ,I think that it might be astute of you to carry out such research.

    I know that this potential problem is still some way off in the future but I think that now is the time to try to button this up.
    What do you think?

    A happy New Year to you and all your hard-working team.

    Very best wishes. Jean Pierre

  • Dear Andrea, Alessandro Coppi,
    Regarding the website, people speculated at e-catworld.com that since many/most/all(?) Europeans had problems scrolling the window on ecat.com. Maybe the problem is that it does server-side rendering at some point and the server is only in USA. The page should be arranged so that it makes no requests to the server side if the user just scrolls the page, because such requests take time in case the server is geographically far away. A person who tests it on the same continent then the server may not see a problem.

  • Øystein Lande

    Dear mr. Rossi,

    You say the “pressure indicated in the data sheet of http://www.ecat.com is the hydraulic gauge pressure of the water pump that feeds the water to the E-Cats”

    I would think a potential customer also would like to know the maximum and normal operating pressure at the delivery point from your plant. Which must be a pressure range Below your stated feed pressure above.

    Should not this be in your datasheet also?

    Regards
    Lande

    Tim,

    There are a couple of common sayings in the Engineering world

    a. “Better is the enemy of good enough”
    b. “Time to shoot all the engineers and get into production”

    Both relate to the tendency of engineers to make their “widget” perfect. I agree that something is better than nothing and the wait for a consumer system is surely frustrating.

    But this system is different in that, if true and realizable, it will be revolutionary. Because of this and other reasons, there are many enemies who would like to see the system suppressed if not banished. Because of this, the deployment of a consumer class of eCat systems must be flawless. There will be no second chance to make a first impression.

    Dear Mr. Rossi,

    1. Can you say what pressure and temperature the water is delivered to Customer from your 1 MW test plant ?

    2. I see your E-cat site specifies water pump pressure as “4 bar” on the 1 MW plant. I assume this is gage pressure (not ABS)?

    regards
    Lande

  • Dan C.

    Dear Andrea,

    To Gerard McEk: you posted-

    “The issues that make a test successful are many, complex and interdependent: safety, efficiency, duration in time, reliability, stability, competetivity, firmness to be industrialized, robustness, etc, etc. Safety, obviously, is first.”

    These details are all things a potential customer would be interested in.
    Are all these things being monitored and analyzed by the independent Referee and will they be used for that purpose. And will the referee provide an overall COP of the 1MW plant.(F9 of course)

    Also, will this data collection be used in the certification of the domestic E-Cat.

    Warm Regards,
    Dan C.

    The new website http://www.ecat.com is very well done, clearly made by top level professionals. Suggestion: make a version in Spanish: once you have English and Spanish it will be readable in all the world.
    I have been impressed by the page related to your patents: 200 patents combining granted and pending. You are making an incredeible work of inspiration plus perspiration.
    God bless you,

    The conversion into 62Ni is rteated in the paper Cook Rossi and we still are working on its reconciliation.
    The main source of energy is Li, though.
    Warm Regards,

  • Frederic Maillard

    Dear Dr. Rossi,

    Thanks for your reply : “Ni is recycled from us to make new charges.”

    But how will you transmute Ni62 back to Ni58 ?
    It should use very much energy.

    Best wishes

    I agree that it would be desirable to have the E-cat inside, but getting it sooner would be a great trade off for many people. Note that many things are certified for outside use only. This includes electrical generators, many types of propane heaters and barque grills. I have been on the waiting list for years, and if putting it outside would let me get it sooner, I would do that. (But I would probably hold out for one that generates electricity too at this point.)

    Hello Andrea,

    Concerning your website it looks great & sleek.

    The server hosting does quickly delivers the content and the website & the server are IPv6 ready.
    So you are ready for the future…

    On the other hand there are some issues concerning the rendering of the website.
    If you attempt to scroll the website from top to bottom you will notice that the scrolling is very rough (even on a top end PC, tested with Firefox or Microsoft Edge)
    I think it is related to the CMS that your webdesigners are using. Just compare the vertical scrolling with some other websites, you will understand what I mean…

    There are also another issues when trying to browse the website from a mobile device (do not neglect this because a lot of users are browsing the web with their smartphones & tablets nowadays). Here there are some auto resizing issues concerning images. Also some text blocks are misplaced and unreadable even in landscape mode.

    I hope this helps.

    Best Regards,

    Xavier Pitz

    Dear Dr. Rossi,

    On your new wibe site in “The Rossi Effect” it is said that “the major part of the Nickel is not consumed and can be recycled”.

    Do you mean Nickel will be mostly recycled in the metal industry ?

    Dear AR,
    New web site is excellent.
    A couple of points to look at:

    The new web site shows a blank space between ‘E-CAT THE NEW FIRE’ and ‘As Featured’
    I am using Firefox 43.0.3

    Under ECAT Technology it states
    Limitless: The current fuel for LENR, nickel + hydrogen, is nearly limitless, the most abundant metal and the most abundant gas on earth.

    But in ‘The Rossi Effect’ it states the fuel is Lithium.

    Ing. Michelangelo De Meo:
    I answer here to the comment that Salvatore Valerio has posted on your Facebook group’s site.
    I thank him for his enthusiasm, but he is strongly overevaluating the E-Cat.
    All the international issues he cited have deep roots in very complex situations and I think there is no way that a technological product can change things in those situations, whatever it is.
    The timing of our presentations, as far as they depend on us, will be dictated by the results of the tests on course and the publication will be made whatever the results, positive or negative as they might be.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.
