    Guia:
    Beyond any doubt, the technology that better matches with the Ecat SK is the jet engine, that is designed to convert energy at very high density. But we are working on the heat exchange problem. PV cells are an option. The production of hot air and water with heat exchangers is the more close to a solution that satisfies all the conditions.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

    Dr Rossi,
    I think that the photovoltaic panels do not match with the small surface of your light source,

    Dear Dr Andrea Rossi,
    What do you think of the mess between Italy and France upon the migrant situation? Do you think the Ecat technology could help in some way?

    Rodney Nicholson,

    An interesting concept of using the light emission of the eCat reactor to power a solar cell array. The Carnot efficiency of a steam/turbine combination is in the low 40’s in terms of percentage. I believe solar cells are in the 10 – 20% efficiency range (my information could be outdated). So even with a 100kW eCat reactor running, one would produce about 10kW to 20kW of electrical power less conversion efficiencies. So you would need to use or release to the environment the “waste” heat (90kW to 80kW). Might be acceptable during the cold winter but less so during the hot summer months. Heating a hot water tank would be useful but the demand is intermittent. But household electrical demand is also variable. So unless the eCat control range is quite wide and can accommodate near instantaneous demand changes, a single household implementation might be difficult to design and build. I would think a village/local implementation would be more logical.

    A possible transfer geometry would be an elliptical cavity with the eCat reactor at one foci and the solar cell array at the other foci.

    Dear Andrea,

    this is a link to a UV photovoltaic cell technology that could be (hopefully) matched to the E-Cat SK emission spectrum to generate electricity:

    What do you think about ?

    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.
    = = = = = = = = = = = =

    Stretching this point a little further: Given the high internal temperature of the present versions of the Ecat, a considerable amount of the energy being produced must be in the form of light of various wave lengths.

    Could electric power be generated by incorporating a solar cell in some way?

    Eliminating the transmission costs borne by consumers of electric power would be of great benefit not only to the consumers themselves, but to the economy as a whole as well, not to mention the sales of Ecats!

    Kindest regards,

    Rodney Nicholson.

    Prof:
    Thank you! It appears that the Dark matter issue is as controversial as the LENR: a flow of sceptic and enthusiastic considerations continues to keep alive the interest on the “matter”.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  • Prof

    Dear Dr Andrea Rossi,
    Here is a very interesting reference to a possible way to discover the dark matter:
    Journal of High Energy Physics, June 2018, “Stimulated emission of dark matter axion from condensed matter excitation”, by Naoto Yokoi and Eiji Saitoh.
    It describes the process to detect dark matter axions in galactic halos and the possibility to reproduce the effect in laboratory.

  • Andrea Rossi

    Dr Joseph Fine:
    Thank you for the interesting links, but the spin combining of electrons to form a Boson can happen only in superconductors, close to zero K, or in non zero value vacuum : both these conditions have probability close to zero to happen casually in the Earth’s core.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

    Dear Andrea Rossi and DrewG,

    As you may know, in 1972 a natural Uranium Fission Reactor was discovered in Oklo, Gabon, Africa.

    https://www.scientificamerican.com/article/ancient-nuclear-reactor/

    It would probably be equally, if not more, remarkable if the Earth’s thermal energy and volcanoes derive from LENR.

    See these articles on the proposed source of Thermal Energy in the Earth by Dr. Frederick Mayer and the late Dr. John R. Reitz.

    https://www.nonlin-processes-geophys-discuss.net/npg-2018-13/npg-2018-13.pdf

    In this paper, an alternative process is suggested, namely: that, in the Earth’s very mixed and varied materials of both insulators and metals, a “superfluid” of Cooper electron pairs forms in some regions such that the pairs can migrate and eventually collide with a proton (here again, probably H3O+ or its deuteron cousin) (see Panel B of Figure 1) to form either a proton tresino or a deuteron tresino. The ensuing reaction dynamics and energy generation then follows the same reaction chains as those of our earlier paper (Mayer and Reitz, 2014).

  • Christian

    Dear Andrea
    Are you still making R&D to find if the Ecat makes direct electricity?

  • Anonymous

    Sir:
    Is the Ecat manufacturing presently still made in the USA or also in other Countries?

  • DrewG

    Dr. Rossi:

    I eagerly await the industrialization of your ECAT technology since following your technology development since the 2011 Bologna University demonstration. I’d like your thoughts on the source of the thermal energy in the earth’s core now very evident in the volcanic eruptions in Hawaii and Guatemala. Any relationship to the thermal processes related to the low energy nuclear reactions of your ECATs?

    Dear Andrea,
    I wonder if and when do you think it will be possible to replace the hot processes of the current steel factories (blast furnaces and converters), which are highly polluting for the environment, with the clean thermal energy of E-CAT SK supplied by Leonardo Corp.?
    Take care.

    Quindi è fattibile un Ecat + motore a reazione che fornisca energia elettrica per il funzionamento di una automobile?

  • Andrea Rossi

    WaltC:
    It is not what I said: as I said, we ARE making long run tests, meanng by “long run” a period between 6 and 12 months.

    Iggy Dalrymple:
    Also a gas turbine coul be fueled by the Ecat.

    Dear Gavino Mamia:
    A jet engine emits a thrust of hot air and such thrust can be turned into any kind of energy.

    Buongiorno Dott. Rossi, il motore a reazione che sta progettando da applicare all’Ecat SK vale solo per gli impianti industriali? Può essere applicato alle normali autovetture?
    Non sono documentato sui motori a reazione e non ho la più pallida idea di come possa funzionare partendo da una fonte di calore.
    Ha qualche link da leggere oppure potrebbe spiegare in parole semplici?
    Grazie e buon lavoro.

  • Iggy Dalrymple

    Dear Dr Rossi,
    Regarding using your SK for jet engines, wouldn’t a replacement
    for a gas-turbine be a more modest and simple stepping stone?
    I’m thinking that such a heat/steam driven turbine could
    revolutionize and decentralize our electrical grid.
    Iggy

  • WaltC

    Dear Andrea,
    OK, I think I’ve got it: unless a potential industrial customer asks you for longer run-time between charges, it’s not on your radar screen.

    Big exo-misunderstanding on my part. ( 😉 )

    WaltC:
    I hope to make also the Ecat SK ready to be delivered to our Clients within this year. Obviously not to be sent in the space or in exosomething.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  • WaltC

    Dear Andrea,

    Hypothetically speaking, suppose at some point there were an application(*) that needed a much longer charge-life– for instance, 2 years, 10 years or possibly 40 years– I know that’s not something you can test anytime soon, but do you expect that the changes needed to accommodate the longer run-time would be relatively simple (for example, by increasing the volume of the charge material, or by switching between multiple devices that are kept mostly “off”) or do you believe it would be fairly difficult?

    * – With respect to the application, I was thinking specifically about things where it’s hard to retrieve and maintain the device– like outer-space and inner-space applications: satellites, buoys, instruments, drones, robots, probes…

    Thanks,
    WaltC

  • Dr. Rossi, everyone wants to go to Heaven, but no-one wants to die,
    But the next question is Why.
    This is my opinion:
    Heaven is forever, which is a very long time.

    It has been the first test at full power and the scope was not to check the endurance, but to see if it was able to work well. Now we are working on the reliablity in the long run.
