    Dear Andrea Rossi,

    On the SK variant of eCat reactors:

    1. What is the turn-on time from a cold start: (minutes, seconds…)?
    2. Is the control problem more difficult than your other reactor types?
    3. Is the anticipated operational lifetime the same as your other reactor types? (about a year?)
    4. Is the effective COP similar to your other reactor types?
    5. Is the required power input type only electrical or can you use other energy sources (e.g., natural gas) to power it?
    6. Is the SK reactor more dangerous than your other reactor types (explosions, destructive failures, etc.)?

    Azzurra:
    I think that in Italy what happened is a democratic revolution that the old guard wants not and cannot understand. Italians have said clearly that they want not anymore the old system. The most important thing that happened is that the so called “opinion makers” ( mainstream mass media ), dominated by the old guard, are not anymore able to build and destroy what their patrons want: the mind of people is getting free. I think this is positive, because in this kind of environment the word DEMOCRACY begins to make sense.
    Suggestions for the new energies? Sustain only technologies that have been able to arrive with their own legs to effective and working products and not spend money for projects that nobody wants to finance with his own money: everybody wants to go to Heaven, but nobody wants to die.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

    Dr Andrea Rossi:
    What do you think about the new government of Italy and its effort to sustain new energies ? If asked about suggestions, what would you suggest to them?

    Dear Dr. Andrea Rossi.
    Your business plan is confidential.
    Can I make a guess without waiting for an answer?
    You probably can take an advance for the heat, in the amount that covers the cost of making the boiler. The installation is at the customer’s disposal, including as a pledge and a guarantee of the fulfillment of the energy supply.

    Thank you and your team for their important work.
    Success and health!

    Hello A. Rossi

    I have trouble formulating my last question.
    I understand very well that you are going to sell heat and not E-Cat. This way of proceeding will require a lot of capital for the manufacture of boilers that you will not sell. My question is: how many years does it take for the heat sales of an E-Cat to cover the cost of manufacturing the boiler? That’s what I call “return on investment”
    I wish you every success and support to your team

    Best regards
    Raffaele

    JPR:
    Yes. The Holy Father , in a nutshell, said that the transition to less polluting energy sources is a challenge of epochal proportions and that satisfying the globe’s eenergy needs must not destroy civilization. He concluded saying that to find new energy sources that respect the environment is our duty in front of our sisters and brothers and especially the poors that have not the privilege to find refuge in environmental sanctuaries.
    Let’s go to fight and work for this.

  • Dear Dr Rossi
    Is it possible to run a gas turbine with the heat output of the Ecat. I am looking into the possibility of using a gas turbine to produce electricity rather than a steam turbine. I know you have mentioned in the past about jet engines for aircraft. A company called ‘1414’ that uses molten silicon to store energy is using gas turbines to produce electricity from the stored heat.

    Thank you

  • Andrea Rossi

    Chuck Davis:
    Impossible to say now, but probably we will sell heat, not apparatuses.

    Not yet. There is not an offer for a reliable industrialized product at an acceptable price. I say this after a thorough research.

    Dear Andrea,
    What do you estimate will be the price of an average domestic Ecat once it will be certified?
    Chuck Davis

  • Samatha Cathern

    Dear Dr Andrea Rossi,
    Your demo of the Ecat QX that you made at the IVA of Stockholm has been very convincing. I am among those who think you are really very close to industrialize the Ecat.
    Cheers,
    S.C.

  • Michel

    Dear Dr Rossi,

    As I understand it, the new Ecat will not be on sale. Your future business strategy would be to sell energy rather than reactors. But then you will have to build these reactors, possibly in large quantities: do you believe banks will easily lend you the necessary funds to start the production?

    OFF TOPIC:

    A friend Physicist, BG, retired from a large French research organization, has just submitted to the gravitation specialists his theory on dark matter.
    The conclusion is that dark matter does not exist. It is no more necessary to use exotic particles to explain abnormalities in the rotation of galaxies.
    He told me the first returns are good, i am so happy for him !
    His theory of emergent gravity solves not only the question of dark matter but also gravitation, dark energy and general relativity. All in one elegant theory.
    A mystery solved with a chalk and a blackboard (of which I have a photo …)

  • Frank Acland

    Dear Andrea,

    Have you yet found any suitable Stirling engines that would work with the E-Cat’s heat to generate electricity?

    Many thanks,

    Frank Acland

  • Andrea Rossi

    Rodney Nicholson:
    Yes, I think you got the point. To make electricity with the Ecat you need to use a Carnoot cycle circuit, that is convenient only for industrial applications. It is unthinkable to put in a household an Ecat connected with a boiler, a steam turbne, a condenser.
    Surely to serve a village the situation is different, depending on its populations. As for the remote locations, it depends on the specific situations.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

    Gavino Mamia:
    for domestic Ecats the sole use I can foresee in the short term is heating.
    Warm Regards
    A.R.
    = = = = = = = = =

    Is the reason for this that, based on currently available technology, the expense of the equipment required to convert a small (10kW, perhaps) Ecat unit’s energy into electricity would make electric power from a domestic Ecat more expensive than that from the grid?

    If so, then might it be economically viable for, say, a local community of 1000 homes to generate electric power from a single, larger Ecat unit? (Possibly feeding excess power back into the grid, as is currently being done with domestic solar power in some places).

    And might the Ecat still be viable – although at higher cost – for a small unit in a remote location?

    Luca Pisani:
    I do not know that technology, so for me is difficult to answer, but from what you write it has nothing to do with our technology.
    Good luck to Prof Vincenzo Sglavo.

    Dr Andrea Rossi:
    You are working very hard many years since to make an industrialized product based on the LENR. We understand how difficult it is and we understand how important and disruptive is your technology.
    We feel the necessity to thank you for your immense work, because to start in 2018, or even in 2019, the industrialization of LENR based products is a miracle made by human work and you and your small team have been able to realize something that much bigger concerns have nt been able to make.
    May God continue to help your work,

  • Dear Rossi,
    the prof. Vincenzo Sglavo, Department of Industrial Engineering at the University of Trento has discovered the flash sintering. Does this process have similarities with those of ecat?
    Sintering is (with reference to a powdered material) coalesce into a solid or porous mass by means of heating (and usually also compression) without liquefaction. Example make ceramic products.
    Unlike in a normal sintering, in the flash sintering the product to be fired is subjected to the passage of a light electric current and this greatly accelerates the process of consolidation of the ceramic already at much lower temperatures. The reasons for the phenomenon are not clear, as well as the origin of the strange flashes that are seen during the process, hence the name of flash sintering.

    Dr Joseph Fine:
    CO2 has a market.
    Interesting,
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  • Joseph Fine

    Dear Andrea Rossi,

    According to this article (See link below), it may be possible to remove CO2 from the atmosphere for ~$100/ton.

    https://www.technologyreview.com/s/611369/maybe-we-can-afford-to-suck-cosub2sub-out-of-the-sky-after-all/

    That is, if the energy used to accomplish this task doesn’t put a half a ton or more of CO2 back into the atmosphere.

    If heat can be produced on-site by a group (or “kindle”) of E-CAT SKs, it might be possible to remove CO2 for less than $20/ton.

    And this might become another large market for the E-CATs.

    The new problem would now be: What to do with all of the extracted CO2?!

    Keep on keeping on,

    Joseph Fine

    Max:
    Yes, the measurements with the spectrometer to use the Wien and Boltzmann equations is very important, because allows a mathematically precise calculation of the energy made by the Ecat. The problem has been resolved with a simple method, consisting in wrapping around the optic field of the spectrometer a black cover.

  • Dr. Rossi, How much are you going to charge for heat ?
    This a decision only you can make.
    May I be so bold as to make a suggestion ?
    Charge a percent of what they are now paying.
    For example, if you charge 50% of their present cost.
    This will pay you an enormous income, and the Customer will save money every month.
    You will pay for Maintenance, Repair, and Fuel.
    No other method of producing Heat can compete.
    You will have the entire Heating World to yourself.
    Then If you can produce Electricity on a large scale you will double your income.
    Looking down the Road if you can produce Electricity and Heat for the home, your income will increase again.
    Who is not going to want a Free Unit and will save them money every month ?

    In the video of the demonstration you made in Stockholm at the IVA on November 24 2017 the measurement with the spectrometer, that was very important, has not been possible for the reason that the light from the big screen made interferences with the waves radiated by the Ecat QX. How the problem has been resolved on course of your eventual experiments wherein external light could make the same effect?

    Dear Andrea.
    I find your plan to start the use of the E-Cat by selling heat as excellent.
    This present a minimal risk for your customers and gives yourself the necessary time to improve and finish the product. The income from the heat may balance some of your costs for improving a lot of details with a new product. When yourself and your customer find the plant and the technology ready for wider sales, you will have the possibility to offer the costumer a nice takeover price.
    The first plants will receive fully attention from the total world and this marketing will you not need to pay for.
    I wish you and your team all the best in your efforts.
    Regards Svein Henrik

  • Abe Vincent

    Dear AR,

    If the customer doesn’t have to pay for the plant then presumably you will have to borrow a lot of capital against future income to pay for it yourself. Have the banks shown any interest in lending you the enormous sums involved or can we expect an IPO in the near future? Perhaps you don’t plan to expand very rapidly?

    Hello A. Rossi

    Can you tell us what will be the return on investment of an E-Cat installed at one of your customers for your company? This is one of the important criteria for a potential investor who wants less than five years.

    All my support for your entire team
    Best regards

    Stephen:
    Theoretically it is not impossible, Tesla’s principle is true and widely applied. The dispersion of energy would be high, though, therefore, considering that the charge would be supplied to the grid on the road by traditional power plants, I am afraid that the pollution would not be reduced, but, on the contrary, increased, albeit displaced from one site to another. It looks to me environmental cosmetic, more than environmental technology.

    Dear A.R.,
    after the idea of the great Nikola Tesla, who more than a century ago used electromagnetic energy to transfer energy over an air gap between two coils, Audi, in collaboration with specialized companies, is studying the possibility to put on its hybrid A 8 model an apparatus that could charge the batteries of the car while it is moving, providing the streets of a coil that, coupling with the coil installed in the apparatus on the car, would allow the charging process (source: New York Times, June 6th 2018). What do you think?
