    Dear Andrea,

    Some questions regarding the long-awaited E-Cat production, thank you if you can answer:

    1. Do you have the factory in your possession where the production will take place?
    2. Do you have the machinery (hardware and software) in your possession which will make the E-Cats?
    3. Do you have the employees selected who can staff the initial production line?
    4. Are you waiting for the results of the next round of SK testing before you start production?
    5. Will you begin by manufacturing in the USA?

    Many thanks,

    Frank Acland

    Dear Dr. Andrea Rossi.

    You said that the presentation in January 2019 is a presentation of the beginning of production.
    There is no doubt that demand for E-Cat will significantly exceed supply.
    Can you answer how much MW of capacity Leonardo plans to produce in 2019?
    And excuse me, I’m always interested in the prospects of home installations (10kW?), You plan in 2019. obtaining certificates for their production.
    Thank you.

    Frank Acland:
    Complete the industrialization. We are not ready, yet. The meaning of the presentation is to say ” we started the industrial production”, which we are not yet doing.

    Dear Andrea,

    What do you need to accomplish before holding the public presentation of the industrialized E-Cat?

    Dr Rossi,
    Are you still working with Carl Oscar Gullstrom for the theoretical issues? If yes, are you still convinced of your theory that the so called Rossi Effect is generated by resonances raised at the temperature of the reactor’s core?

    CC:
    The gluons are differentiated in 8 types, of which 6 are couples that can bear colour and anticolour, like red and antiblue, 2 that are linear combinations of colour and anticolour forming the couples red-antired, blue-antiblue, green-antigreen. Obviously the “colors” are strong force quanta and have nothing to do with the spectrum of the light.

    Andrea:
    are the gluons differentiated or are they just uniform “glue balls”?

  • Iggy Dalrymple

    Dear Dr Rossi,
    Does your proposed 8 cubic meter SK steam unit include an internal steam condenser?

    Dear Andrea,
    Surely you have many suppliers of parts necessary to build the Ecats: can you tell us which Country your suppliers are mainly of?

  • Andrea Rossi

    Walt:
    Thank you for your attention to our work,
    Warm Regards,

  • Walt

    Dr Andrea Rossi:
    I have been convinced by the demonstration you made in Stockholm on November 24th 2017 in Stockholm and the article written on Aftenpost, both found in the press section of http://www.ecat.com
    Now you made a strong progress with the industrialization, but the seed of this was evident in the Stockholm event.
    Godspeed,
    Walt

    Rodney Nicholson:
    Thank you for your insight.

    Jim Rosenburg:
    If the SK will not be ready, we will be able to deliver the 1 MW plants by means of 1 kW modules as well.
    Thank you for the wishes.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  • Andrea Rossi

    Thomas Florek:
    I agree, the Gospel encourages us to love our enemy, so I suppose we have to love our trolls as well. Let the triple step be slow.
    Warm Regards,

  • Jim Rosenburg

    Dr Rossi,
    You seem determined to start deliveries with 1 MW plants.
    Couldn’t be more safe to start deliveries with smaller plants, like for example 10 or 100 kW, using 1 kW modules, until the SK series is consolidated?
    Anyway, whatever is decided, we wish you good luck.
    Jimr

    Samuel, those puppets tend to avoid getting angry, they are kind of a bunch of hippies, really. They have their own website and they are always droning on about “love”.

  • Hi all:

    I am aware of electric arc furnaces where coke is not used, but only if you are starting with steel scrap, so you do not need to convert iron ore to iron.

    When starting with iron ore, a blast furnace is used where (I just checked) the critical chemical reaction by which ore is converted to iron uses carbon monoxide. To make carbon monoxide you have to get the carbon from somewhere, and the standard way to do it is to get it from coke. So unless the Ecat can be used to make carbon monoxide, it seems doubtful that LENR could replace the coke in a blast furnace.

    The air (containing oxygen, to make carbon monoxide – CO) that is blown into the blast furnace is heated, and certainly there is no reason why the Ecat could not serve that purpose. But it still would not replace the coke. And the current method of heating this air is most likely already a pollution-free one, such as natural gas. But it doubtless varies according to what is most efficient in each location.

    This is not to say that it is impossible for some genius to discover an entirely new, economically viable and pollution-free way to convert iron ore to iron. But if there is such a method, presumably the authorities planning to lay off the 14,000 steel workers are not aware of it?

    Correction of any of the above is welcome.

    Rodney.

    Dear Andrea,

    Can you explain your decision to start the 40 MW plant gradually, before all 40 MW capacity is available?

    Kind regards,

    Thomas Florek:
    Not bad your Rock and Troll, but I’d like a more hard version, more angry against the trolls, kind of a Rolling Stones style. Be angry as you would be if somebody that does not know anything of music keeps criticizing your notes: you can do it!
    Cheers

    Domenico Canino:
    Your comment arrived right while I was writing the comment responding to Bruno commenting his discussion with Rodney Nicholson.
    For you is valid the same response. I never have been called from ILVA so I do not know the specific matter.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  • Andrea Rossi

    Bruno:
    Allow me to say my opinion in the discussion between you and Mr Rodney Nicholson.
    I worked about 15 years ago for foundries of steel, because I used to produce an additive to increase the percentage of carbon in alloys of cast iron: for example, I supplied about 2 000 tonns of my additive to Teksid SPA of Saluggia, near Turin, Italy, the foundry of FIAT. You both are right: in fact, Rodney Nicholson is right for what concerns the ovens to make regular carbon steel, but you are right in the case of arc furnaces, wherein the Ecat technology could play a role. I ignore the production line of ILVA, where I never have been, so I do not know if you are right or not in this specific case. Foundries are not all the same and the steel making technologies, as well as the kind of ovens, additives etc, are very differentiated depending on which kind of steel is produced.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

    Dear Andrea,
    listen to Bruno,
    ILVA in Taranto can be retrofitted with your techology, that is better than all the others in this special place, because there is no pollution, and it can save people’s health and job. 14.000 workers risk to loose their job, because with coal process there is too much pollution. They have to choose if to work or to die. Help them if you can.
    Warm regards

  • Bruno

    Dear Rodney Nicholson,
    I am not able to give you an answer, I am not an expert in steel production. I can only imagine that a controlled high temperature environment be the primary need of all the various production processes in a steel farm. So, a SK E-CAT could be very helpful, also in case a retrofitting of present production processes were mandatory for the pollution abatement in the site where the steelwork is located. As is the case of ILVA in Taranto, Italy, where the alternative should be the closure of the business and 14000 fired men.
    Warm regards.
    Bruno

    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.
    BA

    = = = = = = = =

    For clarification, are you saying that a blast furnace only requires heat to do its job? I had been under the (probably mistaken) impression that chemical reactions are essential in blast furnaces which depend on the presence of the carbon in coke. But correction will be appreciated. Thank you.

    Rodney.

    Steven N. Karels:
    1- the reactors are shut down in seconds, the thermal inertia takes proportional time to be exchanged up
    2- same as in 1 reversed
    3- depends on the thermal inertia of the heat exchanger

    Dear Andrea Rossi,

    So questions on your 40MW plant to be installed:

    1. What is the minimum time from a cold start-up to full output power?
    2. What is the time from full output power to a complete shutdown?
    3. What is the time during operation at 50% power output to achieve 100% power output?

  • Andrea Rossi

    Bruno Angius:
    The Countries I cited are the ones we have the capacity to operate now. Surely we will extend our area of operation.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  • Andrea Rossi

    Lucien Gainsford:
    Yes, very interesting.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  • Andrea Rossi

    Antonio:
    Gradually,
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  • Antonio

    Dr Andrea Rossi:
    Will the 40 MW plant be started when all the power of 40 MW will be available, or gradually?
    Cheers

    Dear Andrea,
    On the eight of august you mentioned almost all the main European nations where Leonardo will be able to sell termal energy and assist the customers. Is it there any particular reason for not including Italy ?

    Raffaele Bongo:
    You are right, the power must have a redundancy.

    Abe Vincent,
    We have for the industrial production the certification of SGS and of Bureau Veritas.
    We do not have UL certification, that is not necessary for industrial plants.
    We will make the UL certification for the domestic Ecats in the USA.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.
