    Dear Dr Andrea Rossi,
    Will you make other validation tests on the Ecats?
    All the best,
    Ruby

    Anonymous:
    Of course, even if normally they are more interested to the price than to other issues, apart the safety issues.
    As I wrote, we command from remote the operation of the Ecats, to protect the intellectual property.
    Warm Regards,

    Frank Acland:
    There is not a particular sector: any application wherein heat is a significant costs source is fit for the Ecat.

    Dear Andrea,

    Which industrial sector do you think will be the first to use your E-Cat heat service?

    Best wishes,

    Dear Dr Andrea Rossi
    Very interesting the article on Aftenposten by Per Kristian Bjorkeng. I found the link to it on http://www.ecat.com in the News, while looking for the video of the very convincing demo of the Ecat QX in Stockholm on November 24th 2017. Aftenposten is a major newspaper of Norway.
    All the best,

    Dear Andrea

    its a deal with the government for small business to pay for the first 170.000m3 only 3 cents per m3 natural gas
    any m3 above this 170.000 m3 , will be charged the normal rate of 19cents per m3 natural gas

    My question is can you compete with natural gas for either 0.03 cents per 1m3 natural gas or if not , compete with the normal rate of 19 cents 1m3 natural gas used for heating purposes in the green house sector ?

    Kind regards Arjen

    Dear Andrea Rossi,

    If you do not employ a phase change (liquid water to steam) in your January demonstration but only do a temperature change in liquid water, I compute that for a reasonable temperature change, say 20 degC input to 60 degC output, and a 20kW thermal output eCat, you will need to run about 7.2 liters per minute of water flow. How will you control and measure the mass flow of the water?

  • Andrea Rossi

    Hipolito Nies:
    The Ecat SK can work in all the existing characteristics of the available power sources. Obviously we will make the control system fit for every power source we have to deal with.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  • Hipolito Nies

    Can the Ecat SK operate at 110 V 60 Hz, 400 V 60 Hz 3 P, 200 V 50/60 Hz 1 P or 3 P?

  • Andrea Rossi

    Stephen:
    Sorry, we deem confidential this issue.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  • Andrea Rossi

    Arjen:
    19 cts/m3? 3 cts/m3? I am confused.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  • arjen

    Can you compete with a 0.03 euro for 1 m3 gas for the first 170.000 m3 , now payed for by the dutch greenhouses business.
    They have a special deal with the government for cheap gas prices but of course for environmental purposes they can greatly benefit of your ecat technology but pricewise it will determine if they will use ecat technology or not.

    how do you penetrate the market where they use natural gas for heating purposes? Even for the normal rate 19 cent per 1 m3? Which offer you can make to get them to use the ecat?

    kind regards Arjen

  • Stephen

    Hi Andrea.

    May I ask if you or your customer would be able to
    Make a small presentation in the e-cat SK production.

    Maybe the production process (What is not too confidential), forward plans and maybe a production road map. I think it could be interesting to many. For more serious customers could give them an idea of development capacity, production bottlenecks and other constrains that may help in their planning and scheduling. I appreciate that part could be done privately with customers too but some broad overview if possible could be interesting.

    Best Regards
    Stephen.

  • Andrea Rossi

    Stephen:
    Thank you for your attention to our work.
    Yes, we will publish also the data related to the current supplied to the control system.
    The Ecat SK can be supplied in both versions, 1 P or 3 P

    It’s amazing the progress made in the last year and the would say the last few years too the device you describe now seems to be a huge step forward. An industrial mass device that simply plugs in to a socket! I’m sure there is much complexity in the build and control. But from the description it’s looking like a product now.

    I’m feel really fortunate to be able to follow your story here. Looking forward to January and the video presentation a lot now.

    May ask if you will be presenting the input electrical parameters as well as thermal and flow rate ones. Such as the input current and voltage and if it is single phase or 3phase? I appreciate the fact it’s using s normal socket is already quite something.

    After the presentation of January 31st will be published the video on Youtube and on http://www.ecat.com for those who will not be able to attend the streaming?

  • Andrea Rossi

    Frank Acland:
    1- yes
    2- yes, it is very easy to convert
    3- we make the control panels fit for the voltage and frequency they have to operate with

    Dear Dr Andrea Rossi,
    Whatever will be ( que sera’ sera’) the presentation of january of the Ecat SK, the fact that now we have industrial plants operating with LENR is a miracle: the “impossible” is no more impossible.
    Thank you for your enormous sacrifice, also in terms of health, to arrive to this point.
    Bob

  • KeithT

    When you state “presentation of a service supplied by means of an industrialized product” does this mean the Ecat SK being demonstrated in January will be one maufactured by your automated production line for Ecat reactor units.

  • Frank Acland

    Dear Andrea,

    Thank you for your answer,

    1. So by a “regular plug-in outlet”, you mean a regular domestic socket you would use for a computer, TV, etc.
    2. Would any regular domestic socket in the USA, Europe, Asia, etc. (they differ slightly in voltage and amps depending on country) be able to operate a single 20 kW E-Cat SK?
    3. Would the E-Cat SK be able to operate with AC at either 50 or 60 Hz?

    Many thanks,

    Frank Acland

  • Andrea Rossi

    Frank Acland:
    It ia a regular plug-in outlet.

    Thank you for your insight,

    Dear Andrea, As you and most of your readers are aware the energy sector, made up of many institutions are well aware of your technology and their tentacles have a complete coverage of all large scale business operations. They control the vast majority of companies with regards their major decisions and allegiances. Should these companies step out of line, which they cannot due to board member decisions i.e. deciding to go totally green and abandon conventional energy sources they would be outlawed and suffer the consequences i.e. put out of business which would never happen because they are well aware of why they must never make a rash decision. The private sector, is I believe the only means by which your technology can be taken up. It will require private discussions behind closed doors with special deals and incentives. Once one or two private companies are using your technology and making exceptional gains on their profitability a chain reaction will occur whereby your success will come about by your insistence regarding the keeping of a secret but as you know and I know there is know such thing as a secret and thereby success will surely come. No need to totally convert an entire system, an initial integration of say either the boilers or furnace to start with together with an incentive thrown in, plus the verbal mention of best not to tell anyone of how you are saving money should give your technology the recognition that it deserves and its success in the energy sector. Regards, Eric Ashworth.

  • Frank Acland

    Dear Andrea,

    Does the controller to the E-Cat SK plug into a regular AC wall socket, or is a different kind of connection required?

    Thank you very much,

    Frank Acland

  • Andrea Rossi

    Onto:
    Yes, we did.

    Dear Dr. Rossi,

    Congratulations on the success of your Energy Catalyser!

    Since there’s not going to be a live audience on the January presentation,have you personally invited any potential business clients to watch it on the Net? I’m sure a lot of your admirers will be watching it,but if there are not any tentative clients among them, I’m afraid the presentation will be pointless.

    I wholeheartedly wish you success!

    Regards,
    Obro

    Dr. Rossi,

    For the presentation in January you have said that you will show the Ecat SK in operation.

    Do you mean

    a) A single Ecat SK heating some water with digital display of the water temperature on both ends
    b) Multiple ecat SK heating some water with temperature readouts
    c) Multiple Ecat SK driving a turbine?

    Something else?

    Many Thanks and I wish you success

    In this case your presentation is gonna be very boring. I will not waste my time on it

  • Andrea Rossi

    Robin:
    Yes, you are correct and yes, we will broadcast also a video of the Ecat SK in operation.
    Warm Regards,

  • Andrea Rossi

    Drew G.:
    No, we will not have any engineer to validate anything. It will be a presentation of a service supplied by means of an industrialized product, not a validation test.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  • Robin

    If I have understood , the presentation you will show on January 31st in direct streaming will not be a validation test, as the one made in Stockholm (youtube demo of Ecat QX Stockholm November 24 2017), where an independent engineer has made measurements, but it will be just the presentation of your heat sale service, am I correct? Will you show videos of the Ecat SK in operation?

  • Steven N. Karels

    Jim Rosenburg,

    The residual heat going into the atmosphere is a little environmental significance. The Sun produces on the Earth approximately 1kW of power per square meter. The combined power output of millions of eCat reactors cannot match the effect of the Sun on warming our atmosphere. Mankind for centuries has used fire to warm themselves, cook their meals and do their work. The eCat technology will, potentially, have a very small carbon footprint, probably smaller than hydroelectric dams and conventional nuclear reactor based generation plants. If it works, to be demonstrated and adopted as a commercial standard, eCat technology can change the environment, especially in countries like China where air pollution is a significant problem.

  • Drew G.

    Dr. Rossi:

    You may have already answered this question so forgive me if you previously did so. Will you have an independent engineer present at the 31 January industrialization demonstration responsible validating the accuracy of all the test and measurement equipment utilized as well as the resulting measurements? I’m sure all your followers on this website can suggest one if you haven’t already done so. Continued success and I look forward to 31 January after following your progress since 2011.

    The Ecats are not made to dissipate heat, they are made to generate heat for industrial utilization, not for dissipation; besides, the Ecats do not generate carbon dioxide or any other kind of pollutant in the environment.

    5-10 days per year for maintenance, if there are not unexpected problems.

    Can you give an estimation of the ratio service of the Ecat?

  • Jim Rosenburg

    Dr Rossi,
    are you prepared for the environmentalists that will complain of the heat dissipated by the Ecats into the atmosphere?
    All the best,
    Jim R.
