    Dear Andrea
    esactly….Alma Mater Bologna was
    Fouded around 1100 AD
    Only after 600 years were founded universities in the USA.
    Among the best students are people like:
    Dante Alighieri, Torquato Tasso, Erasmus of Rotterdam, Thomas Becket, Galvani, Righi, Guglielmo Marconi and many others.
    In addition it has always maintained over the years (centuries) a high educational profile, including Prof. Focardi.

    Thanks

    Dear Andrea,

    Keep your heading. After every storm there is sunlight.

    Very good you played not only one horse.

    With much sympathy as, I am sure, from many other readers.

    Clauba:
    The Alma Mater of Bologna, Italy, is the University of Bologna. It is the oldest University of the world ( founded in the XII century ), and its prestige is up to the highest echelons of the acedemic world.
    Among the professors that taught in the Alma Mater of Bologna: Copernicus. I knew personally one of the greatest professors of Pysics who taught in Bologna: Sergio Focardi, who also made a tremendous work in the CERN of Geneva, where he worked with Carlo Rubbia in the Team that brought to the Nobel Prize. I have the honour to have worked for years with Prof Sergio Focardi.
    The faculty of engineering of the Alma Mater of Bologna is among the most qualified of Europe and nuclear engineering is well known for its top level.
    I am sorry to say that your question clearly reveals to us how poor is your knowledge of the academic world.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.
    P.S.
    Answer expectation: 95% wrong.

    Dear Andrea,

    There are going to be more replication attempts to re-produce the “Rossi Effect” in the near future. Typically, you reject, out of necessity, requests for any guidance or suggestions that could enhance the likely hood of positive results. Now we know that you assert Leonardo Corporation’s Intellectual Property (IP) has been distributed to third party competitors. From what I’ve read, if the dispersal of IP has happened, this could potentially include a series of pending patents on various aspects of the Rossi Effect such as the fuel mix.

    As you are aware, there is a significant number of independent scientists, engineers, and academics who, as non-competitors, seek to confirm and replicate the Rossi Effect. A few of them, such as Songsheng and Parkhomov, have produced fantastic results confirming beyond any doubt massive excess heat and even periods of self sustained operation. Many others, however, using the same basic methodology and sometimes the exact same sources of nickel and LiAlH4 fail to produce any measurable excess heat.

    You’re technology works. The many demonstrations you have performed proves it along with the handful of non-competitive replications by honest engineers showing kilowatt levels of excess heat. However, with a small amount of help there could be a new wave of replications — all with the intent of validating your effect to the world — that begins in the very near future and spreads like an epic viral video of hope and awe.

    If you are correct and your competitors have already been given your intellectual property, is there any chance you could provide any measure of assistance to the honest replicators out there?

    If not, I understand. I’m not trying to be rude or bothersome. But when yet another party claims that the E-Cat is unsubstantiated, it irks me to the core of my being.

    Please consider helping start a wave of substantiations with a few bits of guidance.

  • Koen Vandewalle

    Dear Andrea Rossi,

    And the good news is: we’re 3,5 years of R&D further. Lightyears (literally).

    My hope, really, is that E-Cat QuarkX and E-Cat X run faster and smoother than the devices that are stolen.

    One other question: How much would cost – in money or in energy- the complete refurbishing to new-state of the tested 1MW machine ?

    I think in terms of EROEI (Energy Returned on Energy Invested). Of course, COP 50-60 is only in operation, but also the manufacturing of the machine has demanded so-called embedded energy. Most of that energy will be used tens of times. The energy cost of the refurbishment has to be taken into account.

    I prefer things that can be repaired. (For QuarkX we make an exception ? : ashes to ashes, dust to dust)

    What I really don’t understand is: how is it possible to demand a year of testing as a proof ? It would have been much better to try and understand the physics behind the Rossi Effect.

    Making non-stop test-drives with a car makes it impossible to study or improve the operation of the engine of that car. Unless one makes movies or soundtapes of what the mechanic says and what he does when he observes the car that is tested.

    I’m a little sad, when I re-read the following:

    Dear Andrea,
    What did convince your Partner ?
    Did they buy a prototype, or do some private tests in your laboratory ? It cannot have been tested for a long enough time, I believe. Some months ago, you stated that Hot-Cat was still prototype and R&D.
    You kept everything very secret, even for your licensees. I found this a very difficult way of gaining trust of real big partners. In fact, it could have done the opposite.
    This is strange. I really hope you are a happy man. In many ways.
    Anyway: congratulations !
    Best Regards,
    Koen

    Dear Koen Vandewalle:
    We made tests with the consultants and the engineers of the Partner after the signature of a contract with strong guarantees for both parties. I trusted them, they trusted me: their intentions were honest and my instinct told me they were not here to spy, but for real will of working with our technology. This fact cracked the nut.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

    Kind Regards,
    Koen

    PS: Orsobubu: Hehehe ! Still friends, and +1 for the non-capitalists ! There will be a time when capitalism will be seen as an ancient mechanism to motivate otherwise useless people to coöperate to provide goods and services for all. In an ideal world, hunger, need and greed will no longer be the motivators. Only boredom and futility will be lasting and harmless motivation. But to reach that world, at least we need infinite and abundand energy.

    Dear Mr Rossi,

    “Robotized” factories play an important part of your production planing. Is Leonardo corp. the owner of these “robotized” factories. Or are the “Robotized” factories owned and operated by entities that “we” have not heard about yet??

    Dear Dr. Andrea Rossi,
    First of all, huge congratulations on the results of the 350 day test. The results that I’ve seen so far have greatly exceeded anything that I would have ever expected. Very impressive work!

    Second, I wanted to offer my full belief, sympathy and support with respect to the legal action that Leonardo has initiated.

    Third, a couple of questions, if I may, on the “ash” that resulted from the 350 day test:
    1) Has that ash been analyzed & have you seen the results?
    2) If so, was there anything new that you learned from the analysis, especially since this was such a very long test interval?
    3) Anything you can share??

    Thanks & all the best,
    WaltC

    Giuseppe:
    “Discovery” and “Invention” have the same semanthic root: in Latin “invenio” means discover ( literally: in-venio = I find inside; dis-cover= take away the cover and find inside).
    I think you are asking for is if I think that the so called Rossi Effect is something that was already there, let someone find it, or if it is something that did not exist in Nature and has been made “ex novo”. Answer: it is something that did not exist in Nature, because the combination of elements described and disclosed in my patent cannot be found naturally, or, at least, the probabilities that those combinations could happen in Nature are very unlikely.

    A.R.

    Dr Andrea Rossi:
    I got this info related to the ERV:
    Name: Fabio Penon
    education: doctorate in nuclear engineering with 110/110 summa cum laude at the Alma Mater of Bologna-Italy
    experience: nuclear engineer in a nuclear power plant; professional certificator
    This ERV has been agreed upon between Leonardo Corporation and Industrial Heat, due to his experience in nuclear engineering and certification purposes
    He has been paif 50% from Leonardo Corporation , 50% from Industrial Heat for his job of ERV.
    Is this all true?

    Dear Andrea,

    A reminder to sustain you, you are not alone.

    “Rescue me from my enemies, O God. I seek your protection. Teach me to do your will, For you are my God. Your spirit is good; May it lead me on level ground. For the sake of your name, O God, preserve me alive. In your righteousness, rescue me from distress. In your loyal love, put an end to my enemies; Destroy all those harassing me, For I am your servant.”

    God bless you,

    Tom

  • Renzo

    Dear dr.Rossi, I am happy to read that Ecat production is going to proceed as planned. Yesterday after reading the news I was concerned that IH payment was fundamental in order to pay the expenses for setting up mass production. Can you confirm that Leonardo has the financial resources to continue on his own? Thanks and good luck with your lawsuit

  • Giuseppe

    Dear Andrea,
    i’m really sorry about the litigation you have with IH, let us know if you need to fight some one, we are a muscle man!
    Lets try to relax a little bit trying to answer an intriguing question i had with my friend:
    The E-Cat and the so called “Rossi Effect” is a DISCOVERY or an INVENTION.
    Best regards, Giuseppe

  • Sebastian

    Dear Andrea,

    I am fully behind you in getting justice regarding your contract with your licensee. It is a shame that while you were tucked away 100 hours/week in a shipping container, worried about your health, someone would take advantage of you. Godspeed!

    On a more positive note, I would like to share my vision: a city where all cars are transportation is self-driven, environmental-friendly, cheap, powered by e-cats. Nobody would need to own a car, and everyone could just use their smartphone to reserve transportation. I am thinking of a combination of Uber/Tesla/Google/Leonardo technology.

    Now imagine what happens when we replace individual cars with self driven taxis. The need for parking area will effectively go down to almost zero. Those can be replaced with gardens, parks, food production, pedestrian space, cycling lanes, etc.

    I might decide to go back and live in a city if this happens.

    Regards

  • John C Evans

    Dear Andrea

    Congratulations on a successful test run. With your press release yesterday, lawsuit aside which I’m sure will be properly litigated, fascinating facts were revealed. Averaging a COP of > 6 over a year should put the academic skeptics living off the hot fusion funding on notice. The energy sector should begin to react also and possibly already has. And occasional COP up to 60 is wonderful.
    Taking into account the efficiency of converting output to electricity what cop is needed to reach ssm?

    Good luck in the future as we all await the first production run of the Quark.

    Felix Rends:
    My personal view is that if an inventor thinks his work can be useful has the duty to make everything necessary to make it massively produced. Only this way the invention can give all its contribution to Mankind. This means defense of the intellectual property, defense of all the rights, defense against whomever wants to reduce it to a financial speculation. I am talking in general, of course, not related to specific situations. An invention must produce jobs and products, not papers and must enrich all the people, not few smart finance wizards. Still talking in general.

    Mr Rossi,
    I would like to thank you for inspiration. Three years ago I wrote to you about E-CAT business – at that time fruitless. But I didn’t give up, I simply go forward in a way I can go and I want to go, in a “Rossi” way – means work, work… Today I become qualified electrician and I’m feel satisfaction with my work. All thanks to you example of hard work, which is always profitable.
    If it is a way and need to work for Leonardo than let me know. In the mean time I will continue my path.
    For me personally F8=>positive

    Best regards,
    Jarosław Huba

    Dear Andrea Rossi.

    Many have compared the story of LENR and also your own personal story to an epic saga with all the diversity of situations and characters there in. But It is also real life with real people and their real concerns. We who are looking from outside can forget that sometimes.

    I suppose it is normal sometimes that disagreements arise and issues need to be resolved and its the right thing I think to let the due process take care of those issues. Where business opportunity and honour and truth are in conflict I always hope honour and truth wins out in the end.

    Even if these times are tough, I do hope it resolves itself efficiently and you are able to relax again and focus on your amazing work in the days ahead.

    Best Regards,
    Stephen

  • Dear Andrea Rossi, next to all the hype around your patent litigation in matters E-Cat, I would like to ask you what is your own personal view on issues such as social responsibility of inventors, entrepreneurs, investors? Best regard Felix Rends – Moderator – German Section of http://www.lenr-forum.com

  • Janne

    Dear Andrea,

    If I may ask… how is it possible for you to be confident that there won’t “be any delay in the commercial release of the E-Cat technology as a result of the lawsuit”? Lawsuits are not cheap. Production on the order of millions of pieces of equipment in a robotized factory is not cheap. I hope you will have other sources of MASSIVE financing…

    Prepare for lots of “sunlight” after one year of living in the plant…

    Best Regards,

    Janne

    Dear Dr. Rossi,
    What’s going to happen to the pubblication of the report, with the recent litigation on course ?
