    Dear Andrea,

    In the past year have E-Cat SK units been used for customer installations of 1.0 MW or greater?

    Regards,

    Keith Thomson.

    Dear Andrea Rossi,
    Here is my guess:
    Size: 10x8x7 cm
    Weight: 0,64 kg
    Efficiency: 85%
    Electric effective output 850 W

    Warm Regards
    Sture Andreasson

    Dear Andrea, now in other way, eh, eh, eh:

    I think that E-cat SKL has:

    Efficiency: 89%
    Electric effective output: 15800 W (or 15.8 kW)
    Thermal residual effective output: 4200 W
    Size: 100x100x100 mm
    Weight: 0,340 kg (or 340 g)

    But I could bet that I’ll can’t win… in this “ordinary” mode.

    Great regards,

  • Andrea Rossi

    Dear Dr Rossi,

    Size: 92 X 92 X 92 mm

    Dear Andrea,

    I believe that E-cat SKL has:
    Efficiency 76%
    Electric effective output 330 W
    Size: 100x60x60 mm
    Weight: 0,260 kg

    See you in Sweden!

  • Gerard McEk

    Dear Andrea,
    Do we need to hurry, to make a guess of the properties of the Ecat before the quest is closed? 🙂
    Kind regards, Gerard

  • OK. Here we go:

    Output = 104.88 W
    E-cat SKL unit weight = 1.0488 kg
    E-cat SKL unit volume = 1.0488 L
    Conversion efficiency = 82.65%
    XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX
    Also:
    US$10.49 = Leonardo Corp’s incremental production cost per unit, robotically mass produced
    US$1.05 = incremental production cost of replacement charge, robotically mass produced

    May the luckiest man (or woman) win!

    Inestimable regards,

    Rodney.

    Dear Dr Rossi,
    UV-C light is invisible and destroys all microbes and viruses yet is harmless to humans.
    Consider E-Cat powered UV-C devices in public places, above airline seats, c-packs, and nebulizers.
    Each restaurant table could have a table-UV-C lamp (with ventilator filter).

    OK, I’ll give this a go. I’ll use the magic of psychology! We’ll start with the assumption that things are unlikely to have gotten worse. If I recall, the E-Cat SKL figures were reported to be:
    Size: 10 x 10 x 10 cm
    Output Power: 100W
    Efficiency: 70 – 80%
    You have been working upon improvements. I ask myself, where would you most likely choose to work for improvements? Size? Not likely, at least not directly. It might change as a result of other improvements, but probably nothing major. Lets keep that the same.
    Output power? I doubt you will change that significantly. It’s a handy standard, and you’ve shown you can make just about any power level you want. So, let’s keep that the same, too.
    Efficiency? I think that is the most important aspect of this new device. I think that is where you are putting in your time. The existing numbers, 70 – 80% are already amazingly good. I’m going to guess that you have squeezed another 10% out of the process to convert your plasma into electricity. Since we started with a range, the new range is probably 80 – 90%. If we have to go with a particular point, I’ll take the midpoint of the new range – 85%.
    So, my prediction is:
    Size: 10 x 10 x 10cm
    Power: 100W
    Efficiency: 85%
    I find it difficult to believe you have made the miraculous more miraculous. You have created two miracles; heat from almost nothing, and direct conversion of plasma to electricity. So, have you got your next miracle in mind? Anti-gravity? Faster-than-light travel? You have created very high expectations!
    But don’t start on anything new right now, please.

    Dear Andrea,

    The information discussed recently regarding streamlining mass production of e-cat modules is IMHO extremely relevant. To perhaps stimulate this thread within your JONP I am putting this information directly to your blog, if you so all. I am not affiliated in any way with the authors, originators, or organizations that published this information, however, I am very intrigued by it.

    Dr. Rossi:

    Steven N. Karels sent a Laser Focus article describing the use of 222 nm Far UV-C light to eliminate bacteria and viruses in air, water, surfaces and on skin. The current emphasis is on medical solutions to eradicate the corona virus while ignoring a near term technology solution that can dramatically reduce pathogen caused diseases worldwide now and in the future.

    I’m attaching articles, technical paper websites and company videos describing the technology and results of testing to further substantiate these claims”

    Dear Andrea

    Talking about LEGO. A while ago I sent a link about M-blocks mostly for fun bu I still find it it amazing. So here it is again for fun.
    M-Blocks 2.0: Self-assembling Modular Robots
    But there is a serious side to it too. I’m not sure you are ready for assemblies to self construct like this ;). But I wonder if instead of having LEGO dimples or other physical connectors like if you could make use of the electricity. Having a coil in each surface that could be activated as needed could perhaps allow them to connect electro magnetically. A kind of electromagnetic cement. If the electricity is almost free it might be worth considering. A coil could perhaps be used to inductively connect the cubes for power and logic transfer with out a physical electrical connection too.

    Then we could have different bricks than ecat-SKL bricks of the same format. These could be 1. spacers just containing coils for attachment and data transfer. 2. Bricks dedicated to thermal control where more heat transfer is needed. 3. Logic bricks. 4 power storage bricks. 5power control bricks to control accumulated power distribution logically and safely. Etc.

    This would really bring LEGO to engineering in a way.

    Perhaps in the future even mechanical construction could be impacted! Allowing building of construction frame works with small light and strong bricks bound by cheep electricity. Carbon maybe come a resource too valuable to burn.

    Thanks and Kind Regards

    Thank you for your attention to the work of our team; about moon and Mars, I am not able to answer.

  • Andrea Rossi

    Raphael:
    a. yes
    b. the second principle of thermodynamics is not applicable in this situation, as well as in other situations: I already cited in this blog the case of catalyzers applied to exhaust gas pipes of the cars: they yield a gain of energy, allowing chemical reactions happen at lower temperatures, but at the end of the reactions they remain intact, no mass decrease, no consume at all. Also in this case the second principle of thermodynamics is violated.
    If you read carefully
    http://www.researchgate.net/publication/330601653_E-Cat_SK_and_long_range_particle_interactions
    you can understand better how this happens.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.
    P.S.
    Remember also the Faslification Principle of Karl Popper

  • Raphael

    Dear Dr Andrea Rossi,
    a. One simple question: can you confirm that the Ecat SKL does generate more electric energy than the electric energy it consumes ?
    b. If yes, how can you explain the violation of the second principle of thermodynamics ?
    Thanks if you can answer,
    Raph

  • George

    Mr Rossi,
    The USA is aiming to reach again the moon and install there plants to supply fuel mined onsite for arriving eventually on Mars. Do you think the Ecat SKL could be useful in this context?
    Thank you for the important information delivered by
    http://www.researchgate.net/publication/330601653_E-Cat_SK_and_long_range_particle_interactions
    I discovered it is better understandable if studied watching at the same time

    Dr. Rossi,
    I’m sure you’re well ahead of me on this– it would be noteworthy if your robotic helpers were powered by E-Cat SKLs while they were busy building new E-Cat SKLs. It fits the notion that the cook who samples their own cooking becomes the first to realize what needs to be improved.

    Have you any plans along those lines?

    Thanks, WaltC

    The computational scientist Stephen Wolfram has published a paper offering an underlying theoretical framework to unify relativity and quantum mechanics. You, your colleagues and readers of this blog may find it interesting. https://writings.stephenwolfram.com/2020/04/finally-we-may-have-a-path-to-the-fundamental-theory-of-physics-and-its-beautiful/
