    Dear Andrea,

    Thank you for your response about the partner. Can you say in what ways is your partner helping you:

    a) Providing expertise of persons with manufacturing experience?
    b) Providing building space in which you can build your E-Cats?
    c) Providing equipment with which to build the E-Cats?
    d) Providing other financial resources to support the industrialization?

    Many thanks,

    Frank Acland

  • Frank Acland

    Dear Andrea,

    You have stated that your partner is mainly an industrial partner. Does this mean that they are helping you to prepare for the mass production of your E-Cat SK reactors?

    Best wishes,

    In years of operation with the Ecats we neved has ionizing radiations out of the Ecat. Also, we never used radioactive materials.
    The theoretical R&D that we are doing concerning the theoretical bases of the effect are aimed to explain this. See the video of the Stockholm presentation of November 24th, in partucular the lecture of Carl-Oscar Gullstrom.

    Dear Andrea Rossi.

    I never thought about it before your recent exchanges here.

    Is the name Leonardo inspired by a “lions passion” ? If so really great! I really like that.!

    It’s really appropriate.

    Best Regards

    Stephen.

    Dear Andrea Rossi,

    You posted “We do not use radioactive materials and do not emit ionizing radiations outside the Ecat.”

    The previous message stated that the reaction you must be utilizing is nuclear-based, not chemical-based. I posted nothing to suggest which elements you were involved nor did I suggest that there was ionizing radiation emitted.

    If you are able to demonstrate 6 months (or more) of continuous operation at 10kW output with essentially no or little input, then the mechanism must be nuclear for the stated mass of the reactor.

  • Andrea Rossi

    Dear Readers:
    On the Journal of Nuclear Physics has been published today the paper ” Passive Cooling System for Research Reactors “, by Dr Vitaly A. Uzikov and Dr Irina V. Uzikova,
    Dr Uzikov is responsible of the maintainance of Russian nuclear power plants and his daughter, Dr Irina Uzikova, is a nuclear physicist of the Russian Academy of Science.
    I had the honor to meet them both on November 24th 2017 in Stockholm during the demonstration of the Ecat QX.

    Ok ok, Pekka and Andrea, now I understand the choice better…

    BUT NOW LET’S LAUNCH A REFERENDUM ON THAT DAMNED LOGO!

  • Andrea Rossi

    Pekka Janhunen:
    Thank you for your insight about the choice of the name. As a matter of fact, the choice was inspired by the scientific innovation incorporated in the name “Leonardo”.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  • Dear Andrea,
    Concerning the company name, just a small remark. While there are many Leonardos among corporations as you say, I never heard of Albert Corporation or Enrico Corporation. Overall, using the first name of a famous scientist seems to be rare, among corporations. But Leonardo seems to be an exception, for some reason. Maybe just because his first name is rather rare.

    When I hear the name “Leonardo Corporation” (for the first time, let us pretend), I read it as saying that the owner of the company wants to tell, by his choice of the name, that the company puts strong emphasis on being inventive, perhaps even having a portfolio of different inventive products. So, in my opinion, while criticism is always possible concerning any name choice, the name that you have chosen seems to serve its purpose at least relatively well. Also, there is a point that if the company name would be very fancy and a product of a unsurpassed poetic talent, it might to some extent steal attention away from the actual product what the company is selling.
    regards, /pekka

  • Andrea Rossi

    John Johnson:
    Yes, I agree.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  • John Johnson

    Dr Andrea Rossi,
    I have found on http://www.ecat.com in the section NEWS the article of Kristian Bjorkeng published on Aftenpost, one of the major Scandinavian newspapers: I think it is one of the most important articles written about of work since your first presentation of the Ecat in January 2011: do you agree?
    All the best,
    John

  • Andrea Rossi

    Orsobubu:
    I respect your opinion, but the name of Leonardo has been chosen 22 years ago and surely I am not going to change it! By the way:
    1- nobody has ever confused us with another Leonardo company ( there are many )
    2- never happened such a confusion
    3- this is a matter of personal opinion. My opinion is different, but not necessarily the best one
    4- yes, but luckily it can be confused with Leonardo Di Caprio! ( he,he,he )
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  • Giuseppe

    Dear Andrea Rossi:
    I like your choice of Leonardo as a trade mark of your company. It commemorates one of the Italian biggest geniuses and you merit the luck it brought to your work.
    Cheers
    Giuseppe

  • orsobubu

    This is just a PERSONAL OPINION, probably very wrong: I do not really like the choice of Leonardo as the company name:

    1- it is going to be confused with Leonardo SPA, formerly Fimneccanica until 2016, an Italian global high-tech company and one of the key players in aerospace, defense and security. Headquartered in Rome, the company has 180 sites worldwide. It is the ninth largest defense contractor in the world.

    2- since Leonardo-Finmeccnica has a history of state control, the name may be associated with that of a public bandwagon, of which Italy has a sad experience (even if not in the case of Finmeccanica)

    3- about the beauty and pleasure of the name to hear (euphoniousness), in addition to the fact of being difficult to understand by a non-Italian, I’m sure it could be found a much more fascinating name, given the cutting edge production sector, like a great part of pharmaceutical companies did in the last decades.

    4- it’s a name that evokes images of long gray beards (like mine) instead of activities projected towards the future like yours; it is such a marxist, historicist, philosophic name, no too much sexy and marketable

    On the opposite side, also other LENRs competitors have not so good company names in my opinion.

    Dear Andrea Rossi

    Congratulations on the successful test of the SK and the decision to build more for commercial use.

    Can you answer these questions without breaking confidentiality?

    1.What is the fluid that will be used with heat exchangers in initial use?

    a. Air

    b. Some other gas

    c. Water

    d. Some other liquid

    e. Depends on the customer’s application.

    2. Is light produced by the SK?

    3. Is light is produced is it used in intended operations or is it a byproduct of the reaction without a present use?

    Thanks to you and your team for the information you generously provide in this blog.

    Dear Andrea Rossi,

    If we assume 4 kg reactor mass, consistent with density of nickel, 10 kW output and operation for 6 months, or ~4,000 hours), We get a Power density of 2,500 W/kg and an Energy density of 1.1E+7 Wh/kg. Plotting on a Ragone graph indicates a nuclear-based fuel.

  • Andrea Rossi

    Domenico Canino:
    I have a very good opinion of Milena Gabanelli as an investigative journalist, but I think that, to make a complete analysis of the factors that determine the global warming, we must consider that the geothermic cycles have a time-span of hundred thousands years, if not million years, not of tens or hundreds of years. For example, what today is the Sahara desert once was a forest the like of the Amazon forest today and surely this event has not been caused by the mankind activities.
    I think that the time-span taken in consideration in this interesting report is too short to be reliable for conclusions. It has not been analyzed the duration of events happened in million years, I mean the integrals of such durations, comparing them to the integral considered in this report. Maybe such analysis could give support to the thesis sustained in the report, maybe not, I do not know, but such an analysis has to be done, before drafting conclusions.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

    Massimo Matarazzo:
    Thank you for your kind sustain.
    I called the company “Leonardo” when I emigrated in the USA in the winter of 1996: when I arrived to Boston, MA, at the Science Museum there was an exhibition dedicated to Leonardo Da Vinci that I visited. I thought it was good omen, so I called my company Leonardo Corporation. To complete the good omen, the same day, during the night, I have gone to the astronomic observatory of the Museum, where they allowed to see the comet Halley.The name Leonardo brought good luck, and still brings, only it carries a problem: when I talk with call centers, to give the spelling of our name I say ” Leonardo, like in Leonardo Da Vinci “, but many times their answer is ” Like in what ? ” and I have to repeat ” Just like in Leonardo Di Caprio”, and that is immediately got.
    Answers:
    1) No
    2) No, one control system governs all the modules and its energy consume is not relevant
    3) I cannot answer this question in positive or in negative

  • Dear Andrea,

    first of all thank you so much for working so hard to make the LENR dream every day more and more possible.
    I guess it’s not easy to continuously move your mind from the study of the Standard Theory to the management of a lawsuit, from the investigation of matter behavior to the definition of an effective commercial strategy (by the way, my best congratulations on having decided to sell steam). Nevertheless you keep progressing, showing a not usual attitude to look at the world as a whole. It is not by chance your company is called Leonardo….

    After saying that, I’d like to raise three questions concerning the control system:
    1) in COP calculation, do you include the energy used by the control system ?
    2) at logical stage, do your steam plants include as many control systems as reactors ? If so, is any kind of hierarchy/communication among control systems performed, to make them aware of each other ?
    3) from the Ecat QX demo in Stockholm video I see the control system signal is modulated. Would it be possible to observe some kind of Rossi’s effect (I mean a weaker effect proving a lower COP) if such a signal was continuous ?

    All the best,
    Massimo Matarazzo

  • Steven N. Karels

    Dear Andrea Rossi,

    Assuming a horizontal 10cm x 4 cm cylinder inside a heat exchanger whose temperature is 100C and filled with air, the surface temperature would be about 1,735C.

    On your just completed testing, was the testing done inside of one or more heat exchangers or open to the room environment?

  • Marco

    Dear Andrea,

    some questions about the control box:
    1) Is the SK control box still of the same size of the QX control box? What is the external size of the SK control box?
    2) What is the SK control box weight?
    3) You once said that a single control box could operate many QX’s. Is this still true for the SK? How many SK can drive a single control box?
    4) How many watts draws the control box in standby, SSM, and operating mode, with the SK? Does it change with more than one SK per control box? How many?
    5) What is the percentage of time of drive/SSM with the SK? Does it change with more than one SK per control box? How many?

    Regards,
    Marco.
