    Wow fantastic news about the completion of the test on the 1MW plant.

    To me its been like watching someone run one of the greatest marathons of all time, or maybe since you have a team supporting you something like the Tour de France. 7 days a week 18 hours a day, perhaps it takes a marathon runner like your self to have the focus and determination be able to complete that monumental effort. Actually I would say you were doing so well that you included another half marathon on the side with the E-Cat- X and are still making great strides and proceeding in leaps and bounds in that test! Whatever the result at the end its been great to watch. Congratulations to you and your team on this important milestone and wishing you all the best for a record breaking outcome ;o)

  • Frank Acland

    Dear Andrea,

    Congratulations on completing the test! I look forward to learning about the results. Does this mean you no longer need to work in the shipping container?

    Best wishes,

    Frank Acland

  • Janne

    Dear Andrea,

    Given the completion of the 350 day test, once the ERV has delivered his report I’m hoping that you will describe to us the results in your own words, even if the actual report is confidential.

    What is to become of the 1MW E-Cat, then? If F9>0, which I gather you should have a pretty good idea of by now, will you still commence mass production even though E-Cat X seems more promising, from what I gather anyway.

    Best Regards,

    Janne

  • Silvio Caggia

    Dear Andrea Rossi,
    So the 350 days test is completed.
    1) how many extra days (downtime) was necessary to use?
    2) you already know your data, do you informally know customer (partial) data?
    3) do you informally know ERV (partial) data?
    4) you still repeat F9. Why?
    5) is the F9 now only a knowledge factor or still a probability issue?

  • Albert Ellul

    The E-Cat X is making you, and therefore us, very happy due to the most promising results that you reporting in your blog. May you succeed in this world changing and energy paradigm shifting scientific venture.
    Considering the above, the questions that come to mind are:

    1. Will the ‘X’ version be utilised for the planned domestic e-cat?
    2. When do you think we will have the domestic E-Cat, X-version or C- (classical) version, available for purchase?
    3. Is the industrial X-version planned to produce electrical power without any high pressure steam generation or
    4. is it planned to replace a normal high-pressure steam boiler on an existing Carnot cycle power station or
    5. a completely new Carnot cycle-based system?

    What would be the range of electric power output of the standard E-Cat X units planned for roll-out?

  • Andrea Rossi

    Bobo:
    After the completion of the tests on the 1 MW E-Cat, no more information about this plant will be allowed until the report of the ERV will have been delivered.
    Now, at 04.51 a.m. of Feb 18 2016, I am working on the E-Cat X: I want to present this product in operation in an industy within 2016. It is extremely promising.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  • Andrea Rossi

    Rod Rogers:
    I am very focused on the E-Cat X now.
    I want to arrive to an industrial plant as soon as possible.
    I hope within months. Now Leonardo Corporation will concentrate the maximum focus on it. The preliminar R&D has given positive results, now we are starting the production of an industrial prototype based on it. The presentation could be sooner than expected, i Hope in 2016. F9.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

    Gerard Mc Ek:
    The charge size has beene refined with the experience in thousands of experiments and, obviously, also on the base of theoretical considerations.
    Yes, the test of 350 days is finished, yesterday the ERV has completed his tests.
    Now it will take about a month to know the results from his report.
    No more information about the 1 MW E-Cat that made the tests from now until the publication of the results will be allowed.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  • Rod Rogers

    Dr Andrea Rossi:
    When you think will begin the industrialization of the E-Cat X ? Do you have at least an idea ?
    Thanks,
    Rod

  • Gerard McEk

    Dear Andrea,
    I am amazed that you were able to calculate the size of the charges so accurately.
    To me it shows you pretty well know what is going on inside the reactor, but obviously considerable experience form the past will play a roll as well.
    Can you tell how you have determined the charge size: Was it purely an extrapolation of experience of passed tests or based on your knowledge of what is exactly going on in the E-cat? Or perhaps both?
    Does the refilling of the charges mean that the test is finished?
    If not, can you tell how much the refilling will further delay the finalization of the test?
    Thanks and kind regards, Gerard.

    Dear Andrea Rossi

    Can you tell us if you are using the backup ecats to power the customer while you replace the main reactor charges.

    Thanks

  • Patrick Ellul

    Dear Andrea,
    Can you please tell us a bit more on the charge substitution process of the 1MW plant? We are intrigued.

    Frank Acland:
    We are having a decrease, now the charges I think are losing efficiency. But it was expected.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

    Since E = Mc2 and a small quantity of fuel could produce huge amounts of energy, is it possible that the decrease in efficiency might not be from fuel depletion, but from an accumulation of ‘debris’ or ‘ash’ interfering with the reacting components? In this case it might turn out that the used fuel wafers could be reprocessed and, with the ash removed, the effectiveness of the fuel restored? Perhaps even a way might be found to do this on an ongoing basis within the reaction chamber? (I am thinking of a chemical conversion of the ash to something else).

    Restorative regards,

    Rodney Nicholson.

  • eernie1

    Dear Andrea,
    Can you be a little more specific about F9? For instance F9,x%+, F9,x%-. An example: F9,90%+, F9,5%-, 5% uncertain.
    Specific regards.

  • Hurley

    Mr. Rossi,

    Have you seen the same amount of depletion on all 4 units? I don’t remember if they are all the same.

    Warm Regards
    Hurley

  • Øystein Lande

    Dear mr Rossi,

    Have you tried or will you try to detect any evidence of Helium 4 in your reactors?

    It would be extremely interesting If you found evidence of helium….which seems to be a product found by experiemnts also perfomed at ENEA in earlier days…..

    Regards
    Lande

  • Stephen

    I imagine the old charges will be fascinating to investigate. I would like to ask a few related questions if I may:

    Will you be investigating the old charges as part of the evaluation of the plants performance?

    Will the old charges also help inform yours and Norman Cooks future theory and paper?

    Is this the first recharge performed in the current run since the start of the test?

    Are the new charges designed to last about 1year as well?

    I hope you can keep and store some of the old charge material safely if everything goes well (F9) it could be an interesting record for future study and perhaps historically relevant.

    All the best for the remaining days and/or weeks of test. It’s just gets more and more interesting to follow.

    Best Regards
    Stephen

    Hi Andrea,
    you said “the 1 MW E-Cat : charges substitution on course”
    This substitution introduces some upgrade to the plant?

    Best regards

  • Andrea Rossi

    Marco Serra:
    I hope to be able to make also a domestic application, but for this specific application we still do not have the safety certification. F9.

    Ruth:
    Thank you for your kind attention,

  • Andrea Rossi

    Oeystein Lande:
    I am sorry, but intil we will have not a final configuration after the R&D on course, every supposition could be wrong.
    F9. By the way: I am still receiveng questions like “what the heck does F9 mean ?”
    I repeat: this formula substitutes the mantra “The final results of the tests on course could be either positive or negative”.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  • Marco Serra

    Dear Andrea
    We are all dreaming about a domestic ECatX that will power each of our houses. Apart from the F9 and certification problems do you think a domestic ECatX will be sold ? Or do you plan to keep the ECatX out of business and use it in power plants to produce and sell electrical energy ?

    God bless you
    Marco Serra

  • Ruth

    Dr Andrea Rossi:
    Congratulations for your US Patent!
    I read on http://www.leonardocorporation.com that Leonardo Corporation has obtained the safety certifications from SGS and Bureau Veritas for the industrial plants.
    This is great.
    I hope to see soon in the market your products.
    Godspeed,
    Ruth

    Mr. Rossi

    I hope that you are well.

    I was wondering if you could give us any sense of whether the percentage of power converted to electricity in the E-Cat X is comparable or greater to that of a typical turbine heat engine (30-40 percent).

    Thank you for taking the time to answer my question.

  • Øystein Lande

    Dear mr. Rossi,

    Can give an estimated size of a domestic x-cat (500W) ?
    LxWxH?

  • Blanche

    Dear Andrea Rossi:
    Can we have an update?

  • Andrea Rossi

    Tom Conover:
    No, we are far from that stage.
    The E-Cat X is still on the prototype R&D phase.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  • Tom Conover

    Dear Andrea,

    Is the town enlightened, heated and electrified by a network of E-Cats, an industrial project, already certified for installation?

    Thank you,

  • Umbi

    Domestic X-CAT can generate enought energy to power circulation water PUMP (300-500W) ?

  • Italo R.

    Dear Dr. Rossi, the fact that you have already invested a lot of money to make two factories, allow me to think that you haven’t no more problems for certifications in that specific use you have designed your devices. Am I wrong?

    Kind regards,
    Italo R.

  • Steven N. Karels

    Christopher Calder,

    Your original post suggest (I think) placing everything in the interior. No matter. You are correct in what you proposed, at least to what I can understand. But I agree with you that an automobile that never needs to stop for fuel (not “never” — but 6 months is almost never) would be great.

    Which might better lend itself to long distance trucks as they run long periods and great distances. Keep up the great suggestions.

  • Frank Acland

    Dear Andrea,

    Are you continuing to see a decrease in the efficiency in the reactors of the 1 MW plant, or have things been stabilized?

    Many thanks,

    Frank Acland

    Eernie1:
    I have invested all my money plus of investors in Leonardo I cannot disclose.

  • eernie1

    Dear Andrea,
    You have stated that there are two factory lines under construction by the Leonardo corporation for the production of the E-Catx,one in the USA and one in Europe. This in my past experiences, takes a large amount of capital to accomplish. How have you accumulated this capital?
    1. Private funds including those from partners.
    2. Private stock issuance.
    3. Bank borrowings.
    4. Individual borrowings.
    Just the initial beginnings and planning of such an undertaking would require much capital. It is a good sign that because these funds are being expended there must be a high degree of certainty that the device is marketable. Good luck.
    Anticipated regards.
