600+ Comments from Andrea Rossi
about
Working with Industrial Heat LLC, (Sales – R&D – Factory)

You will be amazed at the information detailed in this new story.

We are slowly starting to see behind the curtain hiding the latest partners in Rossi’s 7-year-old fraud and scam Rossi calls the e-cat. Seven years without one working device, Rossi filed the patent application in 2008. This time though, Industrial Heat, LLC raised $11.5M with 14 investors through a SEC filing which fed millions to Rossi. This method of raising funds is now bringing unwanted attention to the parties involved and their operation.

In our opinion, if John T. Vaughn, the Vice President, and Thomas F. Darden, the President and Manager, and Jim Fogleman, the Account, of Industrial Heat, LLC, are truly innocent in all of this, they must dump Rossi immediately and publicly by using the news media, law enforcement and civil fraud lawsuits. The longer they wait the harder it will be to claim innocence. In addition, it is possible that in a civil lawsuit the first ones to file will be at the top to receive any recovered funds. Rossi’s other investors should take note.

Either, Jim Fogleman – Chief Financial Officer, Investment Services – Cherokee Investment Partners LLC, who is also the accountant for Industrial Heat, LLC, according to the report; and

John T. Vaughn, an analyst with the investment company Cherokee Investment Partners LLC, who is also the Vice President and “Executive Officer – Promoter” of Industrial Heat, LLC, deliberately gave false and misleading information to the investigators from the North Carolina Radioactive Materials Branch Health Physicist, Radiation Protection Section, sending them on a wild goose chase; and/or

Andrea Rossi is completely insane, in addition to being a fraudster and scam artist; and/or

Rossi spent a lot of his time writing about non-existent R&D, factories, sales, etc., actions that are par for the course in a day in the life of this fraudster and scammer.

Please read our article here verifying what the investigators heard:
JT Vaughn Tells Investigators Rossi is NOT Credible

In the report, John T. Vaughn told investigators:

“He stated that the E-CAT was being manufactured in Florida and that Mr. Rossi did not appear credible (paraphrase) and that there was a building that he had planned to work at for Research and Development located at 6025 Triangle Drive, Raleigh, NC.”

Now we know there is no factory in Florida. Rossi cleared that up when Florida inspectors from the Florida BRC came knocking on his door in Florida. At that time, in 2012, Rossi told them his factory was in Italy.
http://shutdownrossi.com/certification-licenses-validation-testing/florida-brc-report/
http://freeenergyscams.com/deja-vu/florida-bureau-of-radiation-control/

Since Industrial Heat, LLC now owns the e-cat IP and worldwide manufacturing rights, how can the Vice President of Industrial Heat, LLC – NOT KNOW that there is NO factory in Florida?

How can John T. Vaughn, the Vice President of Industrial Heat, LLC, NOT KNOW that Rossi has been claiming for years that there is a factory in Raleigh, North Carolina? [Read all of Rossi statements below.]

This begs the question – If John T. Vaughn, the Vice President of Industrial Heat, LLC, Thomas F. Darden, the President and Manager of Industrial Heat, LLC and Jim Fogelman, the Account for Industrial Heat, LLC do not know where their e-cat factory IS ACTUALLY LOCATED, than why are they running a $2B investment fund controlled by Cherokee Investment Partners LLC, where all three are principals?

Remember – Thomas F. Darden, the President and Manager of Industrial Heat, LLC, told the news media that Industrial Heat, LLC, NOT ROSSI, built and shipped to Europe the device used in the latest test by the Swedes.

In the report, Jim Fogleman told investigators:

“Louis Brayboy and I met with Jim Fogelman in the early afternoon and he introduced himself as the accountant of the company at 6025 Triangle Drive, Raleigh.”

“We asked Mr. Fogelman a series of questions concerning his knowledge of Mr. Rossi or and R&D work and he stated that he was unaware of Mr. Rossi or the use of the building.”

We are covering this recent development and the article you are reading now is the foundation for the next article in this series.

Thomas F. Darden LIES about the ‘Elforsk-Levi Test #2’
JT Vaughn Tells Investigators Rossi is NOT Credible
This includes the latest report from the N. C. radiation bureau.

It seems that many people thought the report was a fake. The news reporter Mats Lewan, who has some skin in this game, by his involvement with Andrea Rossi’s testing and demos, and his book about Rossi, and who writes for Ny Teknik, Stockholm, Sweden sent an enquiry to both David Crowley, Manager of the Radioactive Materials Branch, N. C., and , John T. Vaughn. Here is what Mats reported:

Mr. Lewan,
The report posted to www.freeenergyscams.com is in fact a copy of an original report from my office. Please note that the allegation number should be labeled 2015-01 instead of 2014-01 because the investigation was the first one finalized in 2015. Anything stated within the report findings was in context to an allegation investigation of radioactive material being utilized in North Carolina.

The investigators documented what was said and observed. They reported what was communicated to them by Mr. Vaughn, but left out additional descriptive language that followed the statement of credibility.

We have no further information to share about the alleger.
Thank you for your inquiry.
David Crowley

In addition, Mats reported:

I also sent an email to JT Vaughn and asked if he would like to comment.
He answered with a statement from IH:

– – – – –
Industrial Heat, LLC has learned of a report confirming the absence of any radioactive materials in our facilities. While the conclusion was sensible — there was no evidence of radioactive material at our site — the report went on to make other observations beyond the scope of the investigation.

Industrial Heat has invested in energy technologies in their early stages of development. ‎We have a long term strategy of spending our resources on ideas which might or might not be successful in the market. We do this because the world still needs new, clean and efficient energy sources. We remain committed to supporting technologies that will reduce the environmental impact of producing energy and raise the standard of‎ living in developing countries.

Industrial Heat acquired certain rights to Andrea Rossi’s LENR technology. The company continues to support Dr. Rossi’s research and development, and we are hopeful that our funding can lead to new discoveries. Since the acquisition, there has been no departure from our support for this project, or any other projects.

Any suggestions of the views of Industrial Heat, apart from those described here, do not reflect the views of Industrial Heat or its staff.

Frank Acland:
1- The reactor that has been used in the Lugano test has been manufactured in the factory of Industrial Heat, in Raleigh, North Carolina.
2- The charge has been prepared by Industrial Heat, as all the charges are now, obviously upon the instructions I delivered with the know how.
3- I had no role in the preparation of the reactor and of the charges, because I trust my magnificent Team. After months of rehearsing, under my direction, the Team of IH is able to manufacture everything without my help. For example, the 1 MW for the Customer of IH has been completely manufactured by them. The reactor used in Lugano is just one out of many of them manufactured in the factory of IH by their workers, directed by their engineers. The charges are made by the top level persons that have access to them.
Warm Regards,

First of all, thank you for your kind attention.
Answers:
1- I cannot leave the 1 MW plant in operation in the USA
2- The replications made are very interesting. Our IP is related to apparatuses that are able to produce energy in a reliable way and in amount useful for industrial and domestic real utilizations
3- I can just take notice of what is happening
4- Maybe
5- We got already the safety certifications necessary for the industrial application, about the domestic apparatuses we are continuing to work upon this issue too.
6- Soon I do not think, sooner or later yes.

Yes, the 1 MW plant is for to generate energy necessary to the Customer of IH to make its production in his premises.
Yes, for the first 400 days of operation is allowed now and again a “pit stop” to make adjustments and improvements, along with regular maintainance. The important is that within 400 days the plant makes its full production for at least 365 days. This means that during the first period of 400 days we have at our disposal a maximum of 35 days of stop to make improvements, adjustments and maintainance. The operation is intended 24 hours/day, 7 days/week.

A.R.

On the base of your comment, I definitely used the wrong English translation.
Let me then correct, and write that the 1 MW plant that has been delivered to the Customer is a production plant, the number one of the production made in the USA by Industrial Heat and our magnificent team.

Sailmenn:
Sorry, your message is gone in the spam and I have not been able to recover it, but here is the answer.
You asked if it wouldn’t be better to make a simpler 1 MW plant with bigger reactors instead of a 1 MW plant with 100 reactors.
The answer is no, based on our R&D and calculations. We have a very consolidated experience about the safety of the E-Cat modules and they also have been already safety- certified. For the time being we have to maintain this configuration of the plant. Obviously bigger reactors are more difficult to control: allow me a naif example: a tiger is more difficult to menage than several tens of cats…
Thank you for your question.
Warm Regards,
A.R.

Paul:
control of temperature, steam, flow rates, correct operation of pumps, electromagnetics, just to give an example; obviously I cannot enter into particulars, but consider that the 1 MW plant has about 30,000 components and an orchestra of more than 100 reactors to put in harmony, trying to reach the “perfect harmony”. It is not easy, considering that this is a prototype.

Thank you for your email, but at the moment I have only one thing to do: work, work, work, with my wonderful Team, to merit all this: I do not think I deserve it still, until the tests are finished; remind that the final results could be positive, but also could be negative. Now we have to work, work, work.

At this point I suppose I can say that the replication of Prof. Parkhomov is serious, very serious.
I am delighted of the fact that an expert of the art, using what has been published, has been apparently able to replicate the Effect. I think this is a good thing for all.
Parkhomov is a product of the Russian scientific school, and I am honoured to have been studied from professionals belonging to that level of excellence. Now we have a mainstream scientific environment Prof, not confined in the LENR entity, that has replicated seriously my work.

He,he,he…I am very sorry, but I have to stay night and day, every day, with the 1 MW plant: I have to direct tens of thousands of components of the plant, playing in the same “orchestra” to reach the perfect harmony, as in the movie “The Concert”.
And this will be at least until the end of the year.
I wish great success to your benefit show and I am sure you will find a better drummer ( it doesn’t take too much).

We make a strong self sustained mode, that, obviously, substantially affects the COP. The Professors of the Independent Third Party wanted not to use the ssm, for the reasons they explained clearly in the report.
I must remind you that at the end of our tests the final results could be positive, but also negative and we cannot give final results until the tests will have been completed.

At this time it is too early to tell when we will finish our testing and a product will be available for sale; there is also the safety certification issue to complete.
I will continue my R&D efforts and work with the Team to ensure we are able to bring the domestic E-Cat to market. This will be done as fast as we can, but there is considerable work to be done.

Rodney Nicholson:
A) first, then a trial and error process that could be defined by B). More A than B in the first period, eventually a mix of an evolving A modified by B and vive versa. Not easy to digest, I know. This is why the E-Cat is a very complex apparatus and the 1 MW plant is made by tens of thousands of components.

Industrial plants are mature, and at the end of the R&D period of the plant supplied to the Customer of IH the expansion will be already on solid ground, if the final results will be positive ( I must remind you that the results could be also negative, and in this case things will be more difficult). The domestic E-Cats are the big issue we are working on for what concerns the future. We are testing a new design that is extremely interesting and, in parallel, our experts are working on the safety certification side. When I talk of million pieces I am talking of domestic apparatuses, of course. Somebody said: ” I have a dream…”. Me too.

To make a forecast is very difficult, and if I say a date I will be assailed if the date will not be respected.

Thank you for your continue overview of the replication attempts around the world. I am following this evolution with great interest.
I just want to repeat the warning to work in safety, in proper laboratories, respecting all the safety laws and instructions; it is necessary that the experiments are made under the direction of a professional expert, with the necessary certification regarding his skill of safety responsible. There is a law about this issue, valid in all America, Europe, Russia, China, and these laws must be respected. The materials of the fuel are dangerous, as well as the potential effects of the experiment.

There is a very big difference between the replication of the patented effect and the construction of an industrial plant, a difference that takes years of enormous work, a very difficult one. Sooner or later, obviously, this gap will be filled up by the Competition, but n the meantime our team will have reached an economy scale that will make the competition not that much convenient. This is the strategy.

JC Renoir:
No, it is impossible. To make an E-Cat work regularly for months you need more than that. As I said, the E-Cat is a much more complicated thing than commonly is imagined. The substantial underevaluation of what we did has given us a strong advantage, since instead of changing the game, the imitation attempts on course try to fix old schemes, thinking that if we did something working the difference must be something very small, close to evanescent. This attitude gave us a strong advantage in the competition. For years I have been considered an imbecile who has been lucky God knows why, who makes things without understanding what the heck is doing ( in the best of cases). Or, more kindly, a fraudster. Obviously this has been a big advantage for our Team. I can say this now, since we are close to go commercial massively. I think now is too late to catch us.

You asked, in Italian, when the domestic E-Cat will go in the market.
Surely it will go in the market. The “when” depends on a factor that does not depend on us, which is the safety certification. We are working strong on it, as well as on the technology of the same, very well developed. Once obtained the certification we will unleash all the strategy to produce the E-Cats in economy scale, to make them competitive beyond any attempt of reverse engineering.

David Kaiser:
Our team is making all the investments and R&D necessary to bring to the market this technology and the first 1 MW industrial plant already hit the market, thanks to our Team. Obviously the loss of Intellectual Property would stop any serious investment. Look at Microsoft’s business model ( from which we all have to learn) and learn how the Intellectual Property is at the essential base of any substantial investment that can bring to the common benefit a new technology. When our domestic small E-Cats will hit the market we will not have anymore a reverse engineering problem, as I already explained, because the economy scale will allow prices that will make competition not convenient. We are working on it. Requests of gifts as the one you are making are not generous attempts to give to the mankind a new technology, but attempts to get for free the fruits of 20 years of work, through what for you is an unimmaginable series of troubles, sacrifices and a good share of insults, blackmails, threats of any kind and also attempts to make me pass again through what I passed through 20 years ago, utilizing the same system and some of the same persons: the play did not succeed because what 20 years ago was enough to destroy me, today can’t even scratch me, due to the fact that such experiences either kill you or make you much stronger.
The First Principle of Thermodynamics should have teached to you that free meals do not exist. You can’t make the “Kaiser” with the Army of the others. Should I take seriously your request of Christmas gift, nobody could invest seriously in this technology and it would remain a social game. Quite a dangerous one.
I wish you a wonderful 2015, as well as, again, to all our Readers.

The Customer we have delivered the plant to has been granted from us a specific performance that is exclusively measured from him by means of the ratio between the electric energy that the plant consumes and that he pays and the thermal energy necessary to his production. What the Customer cares of is how much costs to him make his producton using our plant : if the cost is
much lower as expected, the Customer will be satisfied and the test will be positive.
Separately, our Team will take from the plant operation all the data necessary to complete program of R&D using the more than 100 computers that not only regulate the operation of the plant, but also supply the data we want to improve the technology.
Such R&D endeavour is made by our internal scientists and technologists.
Being in a commercial phase, the sole independent party that makes the final verdict is the Customer.
Thank you for your question.

To give data regarding the 1 MW before their consolidation would expose us to dangerous situations should the data change or worse. For this reason it would be not appropriate, under a professional point of view, to give data when the result could be transitory or substantially wrong.

I will answer to this question after the R&D we are making on both of them will have been completed: for the low temperature the R&D is on course by means of the 1 MW plant delivered to the Customer of IH, for the Hot Cat intense R&D is on course by means of new prototypes upon which we are making exponential progress by the day. Within about 1 year we will have consolidated data. I deem meaningless to give transitory data.

One of the things we have to test is the duration of a charge under the stress of a 1 MW plant in a long period. We plan not to change the charge until we have a decrease of efficiency, to check which is its real duration under stress. Due information about this issue will be given at the end of the test, probably within one year. Good question.

The issue is much more complex than you say; isotopic shifts are caused by reactions and themselves cause further reactions, about which, obviously, I cannot give information, as I wrote many times.
The role of hydrogen is foundamental. All I meant is just that the main nuclear reactions are not necessarily fusion.

1- That’s so far our best available situation with E-Cats and Hot Cats.
2- No, I did not say this. I said that our plants now make heat and that’s the product our Customers can use so far.
3- Yes, in Göteborg during the year 2012, after an engineer of Volvo had attended a test in our factory in Bologna ( Italy).
4- What I said is that mass production cannot start before the operation of the first industrial prototype, installed in a factory of a Customer, is consolidated after a long period of continuous operation ( at least one year).

Frank Acland:
Thank you for this important question. The mass production of E-Cats will generate a miscellanea of jobs: blue collars, white collars, chemical engineers, physicists, infomatics, electronic engineers…industrial E-Cats are very complex machines, demanding many integrated disciplines; I hope this work of us will be a game changer in the employment sector. I really hope that we will be able to create jobs in massive measure, directly and indirectly. I have been born as an enterpreneur, and the essence of enterpreneurship is to create jobs. Unfortunately in our present times money is made principally by means of financial speculations and it is not good, because this kind of richness is made without producing things with real value; real value can be conferred only by the work incorporated in it. In this sense we hope to help the game changing. Industry and production of real things redistributes welfare and make shared richness, while financial speculation concentrates richness in few parasitic organizations without making jobs and therefore without sharing richness. Financial speculation is the real liability of contemporary economy; is made by persons that want to earn money without producing anything useful, just making money with money, so that the money loses its original nature, which is the incorporation of work. Banks are using money to make more money in more or less borderline speculations, instead of financing the industries properly.To return to the sound economy based on the production of real things we must invent products worth to be made; the E-Cat, if it works well, can help. In the meantime the law should forbid ( really) to the banks to act as financial speculators, using the money to speculate instead of financing really productive activities that create jobs and produce shared welfare.

The numbers published by the Independent Third Party are the only ones so far verified by a neutral party. The next Third Party will be the Customer, no one else.

I agree with you, after the Report of the Independent Third Party ( and the work of many colleagues of mine, like for example Brian Ahern in the MIT) many scientists of the so called mainstream science have changed opinion. Before our work, to show anything regarding the LENR to a mainstream scientist was like to show garlic and crucifix to Dracula; today most accept that it is a field that is worth R&D. The final push can only be given by reliably working plants that produce energy in a profitable way in an industry. This is exactly what our Team is doing by means of the 1 MW plant upon which we are working so hard.

Absolutely yes: when the contract signed by IH with their Customer for the 1 MW plant will have been totally satisfied, fullfilled and totally paid for, that will be the first plant in history making real energy in an industrial process. That will be the real game changer in the history of the production of energy, like the “New Fire”. This is why I have no time at all for any other issue, in this period. I need maximum focus, because failure is not an option and all the problems that pop up on daily basis have to be resolved properly to consolidate the technology.

You asked me few days ago about why some of our commercial Licensees have cancelled their websites. The reason is that we decided to offer to all our commercial Licensees to buy back their licence at a price, obviously, superior to the price they paid for it. Some of our Licensees have accepted our proposal and sold us back their license.
The details of the agreements are covered by NDA ( Non Disclosure Agreement).
We maintained with our former Licensees a friendly and collaborative relationship, open to the possibility of future collaboration upon specific issues.
Warm Regards,

Gas fuel will substitute electric energy to activate the reactor and drive it; I cannot give more particulars until we will have a product ready for the market. We cannot feed more information to our competition, which now is very powerful. We need to reach extreme commercial competitivity before leaking more information. When we will have reached the necessary economy scale our prices will discourage any competition, but before that phase we must be aware of the fact that our Competitors are eating voraciously any single bit of information we are leaking.

Visibility in this phase of our development is not very important. What is important is that we stabilize the commercial breakthrough pulled by means of the 1 MW plant making profit in the factory of our Customer. All the rest is secondary. We will not make any other public test, because from now on we will be focused exclusively on the market and the public tests will be made totally useless by the regular operation of our commercial plants. Our R&D will be maintained confidential until the commercialization of new products related to it. We cannot give further advantages to the competition, that is eating voraciously every information we feed it with.
R&D, obviously, will continue in our factory, but it will not be finalized to public tests, it will be finalized to the manufacturing of products.

Our industrial plants have obtained the safety certification because they are intrinsecally safe: if the temperature reaches the safety limit the reactors turn off by a law of nature, whatever the source of the heat that causes a rise of the temperature. Besides, we have put all the safety systems imposed by the certification companies. By the way, the case of a building fire is quite unlikely, because the E-Cat plants are put in proper environment, made with not flammable materials. We have to respect all the requirements already existing for thermal energy industrial plants.

1- The reactor that has been used in the Lugano test has been manufactured in the factory of Industrial Heat, in Raleigh, North Carolina.
2- The charge has been prepared by Industrial Heat, as all the charges are now, obviously upon the instructions I delivered with the know how.
3- I had no role in the preparation of the reactor and of the charges, because I trust my magnificent Team. After months of rehearsing, under my direction, the Team of IH is able to manufacture everything without my help. For example, the 1 MW for the Customer of IH has been completely manufactured by them. The reactor used in Lugano is just one out of many of them manufactured in the factory of IH by their workers, directed by their engineers. The charges are made by the top level persons that have access to them.

We are working on this issue; as you say, the E-Cat will be improved a lot over the time. I think that to to gain a strong efficiency for the production od electric power we need to use gas instead of electricity, for the reasons you correctly explained in your comment yesterday. If we take in consideration the results of ITP and integrate them with the ratio 3:1 = thermal energy: electric energy, we can see that there is still a COP >1, but we are pursuing more strong effect.
Warm Regards,
A.R.
120. Andrea Rossi
November 3rd, 2014 at 7:58 AM
Peter Forsberg:
Thank you for your comment.
I think we must make a distinction between the COP under a scientific point of view, related to the Thermodynamic first and second principles, and the commercial point of view; besides, we also have to make a distinction between thermal energy market and electric power market.
The COP ( Coefficient Of Performance) under a scientific point of view is correct as it is calculated in all the existing literature on the matter, because of the equivalence, under the energetic point of view, of a thermal kWh and an electric kWh.
Thermal energy is a necessary commodity, without thermal energy most of the industrial activities could not be performed and 3/4 of mankind could not work ( or survive) during the cold months. To say that thermal energy is a useless type of energy is groundless.
The fact that nuclear plants and also most of the existing electric power generators working with the Carnot cycle waste about 2/3 of the energy does not mean that thermal energy is a waste, means that we waste 2/3 of the energy, which is a completely different thing. In the smartest plants heat is recovered, as you surely know, by co-generation and by the most recent tri-generation, and the heat is sold, not wasted. Your Country ( Sweden) is very advanced in centralized heat distribution, as you obviously know.
Still remains a part of heat ( about 20%, if I am not wrong) that necessarily gets lost , not because heat is a waste, but because exhaust gases must be expelled above a certain temperature ( if I am not wrong about 150°C) to avoid looping and fogs, and this is an unavoidable cost in terms of heat for power generators that use the Carnot cycle.
On the contrary, you are right about the fact that the commercial ( not physical) COP of the E-Cat must be divided by a factor 3 in case of electric power production, because if we use electricity to drive the E-Cat, to make 1 kWh of electricity is necessary to burn 3 kWh from a thermal fuel. As you correctly say, to make the E-Cat convenient to produce electric power we need one of the following at least:
1- get a COP > 3
2- make the E-Cat work with gas instead of electricity, issue upon which we are making strong R&D with problems to resolve ( casually, your comment arrives after the day during which- while riding my bike- I got a very good idea that could resolve the problems: if this new invention works, soon we will have the gas driven E-Cats, but there is work to do).
Thank you for your intelligent comment,
Warm Regards,

We will give more information when we will have completed the work in course to reconcile the results with our expectations, which were different from what has been found. So far I cannot add anything to what has been written in the Report.

Frank Acland:
The test of the Independent Third Party did not produce assumptions, it produced measurements.
Assumptions are groundless when the task is to measure.
Let me give you a paradigmatic example: the Customer who has got the 1 MW plant signed a contract where IH gives a guarantee of a certain production of energy with a certain consumption of energy: now, do you think that IH will be paid based on the energy produced and energy consumed measurements, or based on the “assumptions” about how it had to behave?

As I said, our team is focused on the operation and the R&D related to the 1MW plant. We do not sell small commercial units, for obvious reasons related to the defense of the IP.

Stefano Landi:
Thank you, Dr Landi, for your kind attention.
1- At those times I could not say other than what I said, due to IP constraints. As a matter of fact, the enrichment system is the process made by means of the ECat. Nevertheless, the results from the test have gone well Beyond what we found before during our internal R&D. As I said, now we are studying how to reconcile, but during these last days we arrived to understand possible explications; much more study is necessary, though.
2- Information about the 1 MW plant will not given before the operation of it will be considered consolidated. Problems are many, some easy to solve, some not.
3- Please, see#2.

I report a communication released today from Industrial Heat:
“Recently we become aware of information being distributed offering ownership,shares or prepurchase agreements for Energy Catalyzers (E-Cat) with request of money in the following Territories: North America, Central America, South America, China, Russia, Saudi Arabia and Emirates. As the lawful holders of the E-Cat rights and Intellectual Property in the above specified Territories, we want to clearly state that no such agreements are being offered to the public. If you receive a solicitation, we strongly encourage the public not to respond, provide personal information, or commit any resources.

The Professors of the ITP are independent from us.
Now we of IH are focused on the industrial plant and the related R&D.
Our Team has to make sure that the performance of the 1 MW plant respects the contract IH made with his Customer. There is no room for anything else, at the moment. I think for us the time of tests is over, because from now on the Third Party becomes the Customer, whose validation criteria are substantially based on how much money they make with a plant, i.e. how much money they save making heat with the plant. They are not very much interested to technicalities, with one exception: the plant must not emit any kind of pollution. That’s all: make money, do not pollute. Numbers will be just numbers, not comments.

I dedicate all my time to my 1MW baby and the connected R&D. I honestly am very positive: it is a magnificence, even if a lot of problems had to be resolved and probably will have to, but our model is NASA: how many failures before arriving on the Moon with the boots. “Non mollare mai” ( Never give up). Mostly all of my time goes to this, but also, in collaboration with nuclear physicists I am working on a theory that could explain the results of the report. I think that we will be able to reconcile everything with good sense and in full respect of the Standars Model. The dark side is that I have time for nothing else.
Obviously this effort is shared by all the Team, in particular the electronic engineers, who are making a masterpiece to harmonize an orchestra of 103 E-Cats with a quite complex play of Cats and Mice; the control system is made by about 100 computers . This wonderful Team is writing a page of History; every component of this Team is working at the maximum of his capacity.

Dear Ernie:
Obviously you are right.
Now, let’s go to make happy the Customer, aka let’s be able to make him earn money from the plant. If the Customer gets profits, the plant works well. If the Customer does not make money, the plant does not work well. With or without the contact with the inventor.
Most of critics of the ITP report, as far as I could read, are of the genre that should they look at me and see me to walk upon the surface of a lake, they would say: ” Hey, look at that moron, at his age is not even able to swim”. Too much work to do: no more time to listen this blabla.

It does not work that way. First, we need the safety certification, then we can sell the domestic units. We need several years of proper operation of the industrial application, then there will be the base for a certification protocol. it is true that our 1 MW plants have been put for sale in the late year 2012, but the first plant that has been sold to an industrial Customer and that can generate statistics for the certification is quite recent.

Orsobubu:
Welcome back.
Since the set up of the test has been totally made by the Professors of the ITP, the assumptions and the innuendos of the usual imbeciles are just insults to the integrity of 6 Professors whose entire lifes give paramount evidence of their honesty and of their knowledge in the field of Physics. For this reason such assumptions, as you correctly mean, does not merit to be taken in any consideration.
Said this, I totally adhere to the Standard Model, with all respect for the sincere anf honest work of Wladimir Guglinski, albeit I am perfectly conscious of the fact that theories are made to be overcame. Not bad your idea of a fund to defend the mavericks.
The 1 MW plant in the factory of the Customer should be the first stone of the commercial breakthrough, and a commercial breakthrough resolves all the discussions. The 1 MW plants are for sale since 2012, now, for the first time, we have the possibility in the USA to control the operation of our plants in a factory where they are applied to an industrial production and not in a situation of internal tests .
In the late seventies the “experts” used to say that the idea to produce computers for “housewifes” was ridiculous and technologically impossible.
Whatever they are saying now is totally insignificant, as well as what they said in the past.
The Sword will annichilate them.

The domestic line is still under R&D and enormous amount of experience and designs, manufacturing projects have been made for it. It will take time, though, to get the necessary safety certification; for this several years of operation of the indistrial E-Cats will be necessary.
The factory of Ferrara has been closed and all the stuff has been transferred in the USA.

I am receiving a snowball of comments, in any form and with the most creative excuses, to get more information regarding the reactor tested by the ITP: questions regarding charge,powders, alumina, resistances, photographies, cables, you name it, you got it. For me it is not a pleasure to spam all of them. For this reason, please take notice of the fact that I cannot give any more information about the reactor in positive or in negative.

You know plants problems ( I know who you are) and you know perfectly well that a complex like this needs up to 1 year to go through all the problems that come out by the day, when you put at work a new technology in operation for a production process that implies 24 hour per day of labour of the plant, 350 days per year.

As a matter of fact, we already have a plant of 1 MW made for a Customer. For all the next 12-14 months my only and sole focus will be on it: it is the milestone that signals the first commercial product based on LENR ( or QUAR, as my friend Renato Estri likes to say) in the free market.
The success of this plant goes beyond anything else, and nothing will take a single hour of my work but it from now through the end of 2015. Also my activity of R&D will be focused on it. All my great team is focused on it.

1- We are not yet in a situation that justifies an automated production line, but we have already part of them and the designs for the complete operation. Obviously, before we launch a mass production we need first of all to evaluate the report of the Independent Third Party, the results of at least one year of operation of the 1MW plant in the factory of the Customer and the follow up of our R&D process. Probably you think all this takes too much time: you have not idea of the thousands of thousands of particulars you have to adjust; the more you work, the more you have to work because new problems are born from former ones. It is a permanent ( Hi, Orsobubu!) struggle.

I do not see how the current international situation could affect the report release. The Report of the ITP has been delayed by nothing but the necessity of a proper review. All Physicists know that the publication of an important paper can take from 6 to 12 months.
Prof. Sergio Focardi has given a strong help to the development of the E-Cat.
Many Professors from the Italian academic world have given an important contribution. The E-Cat is the result of an international team work without which the E-Cat probably could not have been born.

Hello Andrea,
Recently people who follow news about the ECat have been discussing William McDonough, who has collaborated with Tom Darden in various projects. Mr. McDonough’s “Cradle-to-Cradle” site encourages industry to develop and enrich ecosystems (as opposed to minimizing harm).
It would seem to be a Phenomenological approach to the industrial process.
Are you familiar with William McDonough’s work such as “Cradle-to-Cradle”?

No, it is not possible. Besides, we do not produce any radioactive residual, as well as we do not use any radioactive material. The E-Cat works in a totally different way. The thermoelectric device you gave the link of is a classic generator based upon the Seebeck Effect, that I know pretty well, having worked with it for many years. The particular application fueled by radioactive isotopes has been used by NASA in space devices like spaceships, satellites etc. As a source has been normally used plutonium. This application has been abandoned, due to the risk related to a possible fall of the apparatus on the surface of the Earth. All this has nothing to do with the possible applications of the E-Cat.

Again we lost in the spam your comment as I tried to publish it. Very strange. Anyway, thank you for your kind considerations and sustain. I confirm that, as you wrote, I found in the USA a very strong help, at any level, without which this technology could never arrive to the point it arrived so far, even if I must add that the results from the TIP report and the 1 MW operation could be positive, as well as negative.
Also: the US team is preparing with Chinese scientists an important R&D operation that will help the industrialization of our devices: LAVOLALE, LAVOLALE!

I cannot supply further information about the mechanism of the E-Cat. We now know it well, and it is strictly bound to the issues covered, as you correctly say, by the NDA and the defense of the IP.
We do not have safety concerns, since safety certification has been obtained for our industrial E-Cat after the reactors have been properly designed and all the measurements made OUTSIDE the E-Cat have confirmed its safety also in terms of ionizing radiations. We have experts of the matter working with us, who are physicists from laboratories specialized in measurements of ionizing radiations.
About the domestic E-Cat, any commercial information is impossible until a safety certification is obtained for it: as I explained many times, there is a paramount difference between the certification of industrial plants, operated by certified technicians, and domestic appliances, operated by persons that are not even supposed to read the manuals. The price of the domestic E-Cat will be computed after we will know exactly the requirements estabilished during the certification process, besides other issues.
Pre-orders are just a waiting list, with no engagement at all, with no money deposited. We cannot accept money until the product is really for sale.

1- There is not a conflict, the transmutation of Ni remains a secondary effect that, by the way, has still to be confirmed.
2- Efficiency is not just COP, is a more wide concept encompassing many other characteristics, like stability, reliability, duration etc. All these issues are in evolution.

Curiosone:
We think that our process, the so called “Rossi Effect”, is , as a serendipity, also a system to produce 62Ni, because only this fact can explain the formation of atoms of stable Cu, even if in very small amounts; we also noticed that using eventually powders of Ni enriched this way, the efficiency of the E-Cats increases. But we are not sure of this fact, because there may have been errors in the analysis, so we are studying , as a side effect , this phenomenon. Obviously, I cannot add information regarding this issue, pending the patents relative to it.

Domestic certification for LENR is not like for a normal appliance. I already explained why.
The task, not easy, is to convince the Certificator that LENR can be handled by laymen. We need consolidated experience with industrial plants . It is not how you say, the issue is not to show to have something practicable, it is to convince that LENR are not dangerous for persons without skill for them. It is much more complex than you say. It is not impossible, though.

For whom it may interest: I wake up at 6, run 1 hour ( or bike, or tennis, or swim, I consider mandatory 1 hour exercise per day), two hours per day are dedicated to study Physics, mandatory, either related to the E-Cat or independent from it, or at least not directly related. Twelve hours are dedicated to the work on the E-Cats and Hot Cats, which depends on the specific situation, can be experiments in the laboratory, control of the manufacturing to study better systems, invention every day of new things to make it better together with the great Team with which I share the job in IH. This can happen in the factory of IH or of the Customer of IH or in other locations of IH: inventions, I can’t help to stay without them. Measurements analysis are a daily duty too. Obviously meetings are part of the job, to maintain a clear vision of the precise duties of every component of the Team, that vibrate upon a dynamic field. The remaining hours are dedicated to my personal life, usually, but many times these plans have to change: it happened that I had to stay 36 hours straight on a plant in critical operation to control it, without sleeping, eating, just drinking water. Luckily God gave me strong excess of stamina and I use it, if necessary, to the limit. In September I am afraid this situation will be frequent, but with the help of my great team we can do it. Failure is not an option.
Hobby: I adore to read books of Physics, I need to learn. Recreation: Play Tennis with my woman ( much stronger than me). I also like to play drums ( Jazz), but I have no more the time to exercise, so I am losing the skill: years ago I was very good, now I stink.

The size issue so far has been resolved choosing the solution of adopting the modular assembling of 1- 10 kW units.
The reason of this choice is that we have consolidated experience on small modules and that if one or several modules break up we can preserve most of the power in operation.
Besides, to menage many cats is easier then to menage several tigers.
Last, but not least: our modules of E-cats and Hot-cats have been certified.

I understand your point, but you are making confusion between two issues that have to be distinguished between each other.
Evidence of the fact that QUAR ( or LENR) work is in course of being collected, due to the TPR2 and the first 1 MW commercial plant : we will see if the results will be positive or negative. A different thing is the negativeness or positiveness of a specific semanthic. If somebody asks you if it is raining you cannot answer ” the real problem is to have a roof upon houses”.

In this period I am exclusively focused on the 1 MW plant, therefore the issue of the e.m. fields detected is not at the moment on the top of the spear. This is an issue that we do not consider consolidated, more complex research has to be done to say anything important about it. Anyway, based on what we made:
1- electrostatic
2- outside the reactor, inside the E-Cat, not outside the E-Cat
3- see 1
4- pulsing

It is extremely important that the 1 MW plant does not work well for any days, but reliably for at least one year without major problems, because what we are aiming to is the real industrial application of the so called Rossi Effect, not another test. The next 1 MW plant has the task to open the era of the industrial utilization of the so called Rossi Effect, with ratings supplied not from experimentalists, but from satisfied Customers that make money with our plants. Obviously R&D will continue for ever, but the next 1MW plant will close the experimentalism era and will open the commercial era, in which we will no more discuss if the so called Rossi Effect works or not, but the discussion will be about its industrial evolution and, eventually, its domestic application: provided the results of the TPR2 and the 1 MW plant will be positive, and not negative, because: THE RESULTS COULD BE POSITIVE, BUT ALSO NEGATIVE AS FOR WE KNOW SO FAR.

Visits will be allowed when the Customer will allow them, maybe within the year. This plant will make history, if the results will be positive, and every step has to be calculated with precision.
I have to add that the results could be positive, but also negative and that the results will be considered positive only after months of regular and reliable operation.

I am sorry for your feeling, but I am not playing with candies.

Regarding the 1 MW plant, we cannot give any specific information before we are allowed to publish the data of its operations.

If a LENR system works, it does not need public funding. If anything that works well needs funding, money arrives from investors. Think to Microsoft, Apple, etc. There are things that need public funding because they are important but do not produce profit, or the perspective of profits are too much distant in time to make them appealing for capital investments; in those cases is necessary that governments make funding: for example CERN, the conquer of Space, things like these.

I do not agree with you. Power is distributed in the cheapest way at the moment. Believe me: a product does not resist in the market if it is not competitive, and to decide if it is competitive or not is only one entity: THE CUSTOMER. For this reason we do not react to the stupidities said about our product, we just care the satisfation of the Customer, while the science of tests and experiments is essential to the development of a reliable industrial product.

At the moment I am working focused exclusively on the 1 MW plant we are installing in the factory of the Customer . The work is advancing along our scheduling, some problems emerged, but I cannot give any specific information; in due time, I think within 2014, visits to this plant in operation will be allowed, unless problems will emerge. This time we are not preparing a test or a demo, the 1 MW plant is going to work along a production line in a factory to lower the production costs of the Customers. The target is: ” to increase the profits of the Customer by means of the E-Cat”, indipendently from any other consideration. It is a matter of money, not of science and our Customer is a Corporation, not a scientific institute, so now we are working in a different context that is at the first step toward an industrialization of the product. The expectations of the Customer can be either met or not, which means that the results, under the economical point of view, can respect the guarantees or not: we have to see it in the reality, because, as we well know, ” IN MERCATU VERITAS”.

1- to sleep well I suggest to all who are not sleeping to read the biased critics against LENR ( all of them)
2- we are not advertising anything, we are making R&D in this phase of our work
3- the ones that critic the report before reading it are just displacing air with their tongues: not an effective way to make hurricanes. Just ignore them.
Nobody is kept in the dark, everybody is waiting patiently for the results of a huge, long, difficult work whose output will be important. The Professors are, obviously, aware of the importance of this work and are keeping all the necessary time to make the best possible work. I am conscious of the fact that the results can be positive but also could be negative.

It is impossible to answer to your question, or, at least, I am not able to. I do not know what the competition will do. One thing I am sure of is that from competition will rise more convenience for the market. Remember: ” In mercatu veritas “. I know that giants are already working to compete with us: Shell, Mitsubishi, MIT, Volvo, ABB, NASA…and I am strongly honoured to have inspired, in some way, their work; to be clear: should I have not broken the ice in three years of public work, since January 2011, none of these Entities would have taken seriously LENR in the measure they are taking them now. Is it not true? At the cost of tremendous fights that also involved personal issues that have nothing to do with my work, but still have consumed time and energies. Anything has been tried to kill our work, without substantial effects, though ( thanks to God). Our Team is stronger than ever.

Sweden: we are making up in Sweden a very strong team of young, aggressive and very well prepared physicists with strong enterpreneurial bases. Sweden is also a logic place for the development of the E-Cat , due to the weather, and the system of distributed heating that is fit for our technology. Obviously we are also looking with deep respect all the other Countries of the world, but you asked me which place will be first: I think Sweden.

Dear Readers:
Update to your FAQ:
1- Report: I still do not know when the report will be published, as it is not under my control.
Remember: the results could be positive or negative.
If I receive information about publication timeframes, I will share it at that time. Otherwise, for me, it is clearly impossible to share information I do not have.
2- R&D: we have a robust R&D program, consistent with the expectations of the market. As the chief scientist, I focus on improving the operation of the E-Cat, ensuring quality control, testing and evaluation.
3- Our Customers: information about our Customers, obviously, is confidential. When visits to a plant operated by a Customer of us in his factory will be ready to be allowed, due information will be given to the accepted Visitors.

I would say that we have to put a distinction between market and science. Both, anyway, could give positive or negative results, and we will give information of both, along their indipendent paths, when we will consider consolidated the results ( for the industrial plants) and when we will have a reviewed- published report ( for the Third Indipendent Party test). Both are on their way. I am focused on the one that depends on me: the 1 MW plant ( on the front of it I want written the motto “In mercato veritas”).

I am focused on the 1 MW plant, as I said. Only the market will put an end to all the useless chattering around and will vindicate the value of our work, making groundless the accusations based on my past ( see http://www.ingandrearossi.com). My enemies can libel me, can write and broadcast falsities and accusations regarding facts of my life of 20 years ( twenty years !!!) ago, not related to my work on the LENR, but useful to try to discredit my person, can blackmail me, can do this and other, but one thing they will never able to do: stop the plants that are working with my technology. I have to answer with facts, not words.
The particulars of the plant in operation in the USA will be given to the visitors when we will be able to allow visits to next Customers and allowed persons and will be published in due time.

It is not an easy reading, the work is rigorous, but this is the Journal of Nuclear Physics, and the paper is perfectly in line with the field of application of our Journal.

He,he,he, yes I am working and casually online in this moment to check the JoNP’s blog ( I can do this now and again, when I have some relax). We are working very well with our R&D in this period. But it is not 3.30, it is 3.03 a.m. In this very moment I am working on the gas fueled E-Cat prototype.
About the question: we are replicating all the experiments published from our competition, reproducing exactly what written in the patent applications or patents that are published. We are doing this work, with two our specialists, to check the worth ( the real worth) of our competition. Honestly, no results came out which could confirm the claims. So far. Obviously, the History teaches that sooner or later the competition will be born, but not so far, albeit we are not aware of the R&D of our potential competition whose results are not published.

Damiano:
You are right, we are late, but probably it will take still time before we can get a safety certification for the domestic E-Cats, as I explained many times; while we obtained the certification for the industrial plants, because they are operated by certified technicians in certified industries, the domestic E-Cats will be operated by laymen, and this makes the issue very difficult for a LENR device without a history. Now, the configuration is that of a snake ( …not “that ” snake) that bites its tail: we cannot have a history if we do not sell them, but we cannot sell them if we have not a history. How to break this closed circle? With the history of industrial plants. It will take time. This is the reason why we did not accept money with the pre-orders we received from People like you. We still have the list of pre-orders and we conserve it, but we cannot engage in any promise of delivery date.

We must put a distinction between products that are ready (www.leonardocorp1996.com) and products that are in the horizon of the future ( for example jet engine applications).
R&D covers both categories, but with a different approach, as you correctly write. Our lab facilities are complex, we have a data measurement section, a radiation measurement section, a prototype manufacturing section, an electronic systems invention section and a new materials preparation section: sometimes we have to invent materials that are not for sale.

Perhaps you remember that we made R&D also using gas as a fuel. That line of R&D has been carried on and we are now preparing for a pilot jet engine gas fueled hybridized with an E-Cats assembly. This is exactly what I am working upon during these very days, while the work of the third indipendent party is going on with the hot cat. Obviously, the technology of the Hot Cat is strictly connected with the gas fueled Hot Cat. But remember: I still must say that:
THE RESULTS OF THE EXPERIMENT IN COURSE MADE BY THE THIRD INDIPENDENT PARTY CAN BE POSITIVE OR NEGATIVE AND NOTHING SPECIFIC ABOUT THE FUTURE WORK CAN BE SAID UNTIL THE RESULTS ARE PUBLISHED, POSITIVE OR NEGATIVE AS THEY MIGHT BE.

I received your comment and respect your will not to publish it. As a matter of fact, I did not receive all the stuff you sent. My blog, as well as my email addresses, are continuously hacked, and here is a permanent war between our IT guy and the imbeciles that try to put bumps in the road of our communication. The last naive attempt has been the manipulation of the data base of the Patent Office of Italy by a hacker, who is also a snake and has also 3 pseudonyms with which hiddens himself and his cowardice using fake websites: with this hacking action he has put an invented name on my patent granted in 2009 with priority April 2008, then this imbecile has published in a website of one of his pseudonyms, among other stupidities, the fatal question: ” Is really of Andrea Rossi the patent?” and linked the manipulated page of the Patent Office. Obviously we made a complaint and the data base has been immediately corrected, cancelling the invented name and reinstating “Andrea Rossi” as the inventor. This journalistic fraud is just a paradigmatic example of what happens now and again to us in the field of the communication media.
So, dear Bob, if you see that something you send is not published, just send it again. When we are hacked it takes just some hours for us to fix the damage.
It can also happen that a comment is erroneously spammed from the robot: in this case, means that the comment contains links that are erroneously taken as advertising: if so, resend, eliminating the link. Otherwise, for any other reason, write to

About the other questions:
1- I am the chief scientist of Industrial Heat, and therefore my duties for IH do not involve me in commercial decisions
2- The third indipendent party validation in course does not depend on me for any issue regarding time scheduling, measurements . All I give is technical assistance if requested.
3- I do not control the tests and the results of the tests, that will be published indipendently and whatever the results, positive or negative; I also insist on the fact that the results could also be negative.

The mass production line, for which parts have already been prepared, will be set up and put in operation when the mass production will begin, but, as I said many times, we cannot begin a mass production until the R&D and validation work will be completed.

The R&D and validation work in course is necessary to improve our science, to improve our theoretical interpretation of the so called Rossi Effect, to verify the positivity of the same effect in order to decide and define the Investments ( if any) necessary for the industrialization in large and international scale.
Hundreds of million dollars cannot be invested without a precise and validated background. As I said, joking: we are not here to sharpen the tips of the skyscrapers.

F.: the Enterprise, in which I have the honour to work in collaboration with a wonderful Team, will continue to work to make our technology as useful as possible, and this evolution will have an exponential development after the end of the R&D validation in course, whose results will be published on a peer reviewed magazine. I hope the results will be positive, but my duty as a scientist is to say that until the work is not finished, the possibility of negative results must be considered not impossible.

We are working very hard to merit the enthusiasm of persons like you. We are making a hard work of R&D and validation and we will publish the results after such work will have been completed, whatever the results, positive or negative, as I always said. Until then, my duty as a scientist is to say that no specific answer can be given to questions regarding if the results will be positive or negative. All I can say is that the work based upon the so called Rossi Effect is carried on with scientific rigor.

About the suggestion of the 3D, is a good suggestion, we will see what we can do. In this moment we have other priorities, anyway.

1- for sure we are not producing radioactive by- products, this has been already certified.
2- the analysis of the charges after a long period of operation is very interesting. Yes, when the intellectual property will no more be an issue, most information will be shared
3- obviously, now we are in a period of validation of the current operation of the E-Cat, therefore what we deal with now is a normal operation, totally and perfectly under control. In this situation the variations of the charges are consolidated, even if I must repeat again that the validation and R&D work is in course, and until this work will not be completed we cannot say anything specific. The results at the end of this work could be positive as well as negative, and such results will be published on a peer reviewed magazine, positive or negative as they might be.

As you explained in an email sent to me privately, “from cradle to cradle product” means essentially a product wasteless during the production, the working life and the dismission: in this case, yes, the E-Cat is a cradle to cradle product. All the components are recyclable and the “wastes” are recyclable metals.
Thank you for the interesting question.

Italo R.:
You are right, the E-Cat, if voluntarily improperly managed, mainly by expert enemies,can be dangerous. This is the reason why the safety certification for a domestic E-Cat, usable from anybody, is very difficult to obtain. This is also the reason why we can sell the plants only to industries that can give us all the guarantees of safety. Our Customers have to make our plants operated only by operators certified by us, after a specific education through the manuals and after a period of instructions whose main part is aimed to safety. Our Customers must have already a culture and an organization aimed to safety and they will be liable for the respect of all the safety instructions supplied by us. This is also the reason for which we sell our plants only to industries that have a consolidated history of energy utilization at least in the amounts produced by our plants, so that we deal with persons already expert of the field, even if not of the E-Cat. We also need Customers with a financial structure enough solid to guarantee us they can sustain properly all the safety and security issues implied and to guarantee a security able to make sure that the technology does not go in wrong hands.

1- I cannot publish this information, while I can confirm that the destructive tests are performed respecting all the safety issues: we know perfectly what can happen and behave consequently. The reason we make these destructive tests is aimed to make industrial E-Cats totally safe and perfectly stable at the highest possible temperature
2- The E-Cats are intrinsecally safe. To bring them to destructive levels is necessary to make operations that can only be made voluntarily and by experts.

December 29th, 2013 at 8:20 AM
Steven N Karels:
1- yes
2- yes
3- moreless yes
About the temperature: during the destructive tests the temperature raises for some second well above the melting point of Ni. This is why the “Mouse” cannot excite over a certain limit the E-Cat to maintain well stabilized operation.

The registration of these experiments, in particular of the explosions, contains information we deem restricted, so far. I gave a description that filtered the confidential data. Besides: remember that the R&D work is still in course, and the complete results will be published after the end of this work, positive or negative as they might be. If positive, what really will matter are not the destructive tests, but the stable operation at high temperature, which allows to exchange heat with water making steam at 500-600°C, with an efficiency around 40%. The distructive tests are important to determine the safety limits of operation

James Bowery:
Very sorry, I cannot answer to this question exhaustively, but I can say something. Obviously, the experiments are made with total respect of the safety of my team and myself. During the destructive tests we arrived to reach temperatures in the range of 2,000 Celsius degrees, when the “mouse” excited too much the E-Cat, and it is gone out of control, in the sense that we have not been able to stop the raise of the temperature ( we arrived on purpose to that level, because we wanted to study this kind of situation). A nuclear Physicist, analysing the registration of the data, has calculated that the increase of temperature ( from 1 000 Celsius to 2,000 Celsius in about 10 seconds), considering the surface that has increased of such temperature, has implied a power of 1 MW, while the Mouse had a mean power of 1.3 kW. Look at the photo you have given the link of, and imagine that the cylinder was cherry red, then in 10 seconds all the cylinder became white-blue, starting from the white dot, where is placed the charge, you see in the photo ( after 1 second) becoming totally white-blue in the following 9 seconds, and then an explosion and the ceramic inside ( which is a ceramic that melts at 2,000 Celsius) turned into a red, brilliant powder made of small stones, like rubys. When we opened the reactor, part of the AISI 310 SS steel was not molten, but sublimated and recondensed in form of microscopic drops of steel.

Yes, the work is promising, but let’s wait the publication to read the consolidated results. So far I must repeat that the output could be negative, the validation work is not completed: never assume you won until the whistle of end game has not been blown. Anyway: now we will estabilish the limits of the allowable excitation with series of destructive tests, then the control engineers will design the final version of the control system for the new limits of the temperature of the high temperature E-Cats ( Hot Cats).

Herb Gillis:
Useful comment.
The explosions, or destructive tests, are made in controlled modes, in proper lab, with due control of the radiations made by proper instrumentation. I cannot give further information about these data, but we need destructive tests to find the safety limits within which the E-Cats can work in a stabilized operation. Obviously,no ionizing radiations are released outside the safety box in which the reactor is destructed: by the way, just behind the walls of the box there are my Team and ME.

Hank Mills:
If we give too much energy to the reactor the temperature raises above the controllability limits and the reactor explodes. We must maintain the drive below this limit, and it is what we are learning to do, trying to reach a controllability level at the highest temperature possible, because the COP raises exponentially with the operation temperature. The apparatus is made by two well separated components, the activator ( “mouse”) and the energy catalyzar ( “Cat”). Now we have a mouse with a COP above 1 and a Cat with a COP with zero energy consumption. If the Mouse excites the cat too much, the cat gets wild and explodes. We must not risk to reach this level. We have seen explode hunderds of reactors now, this way.

We work 18 hours per day in self sustaining mode and 6 hours per day in driven mode, but also during this period the COP is more than 1, so the energy consumed is totally paid back during the not self sustained period…

Your comment has been erroneously spammed ( my fault, I am very tired and stressed, and I pushed the wrong botton) but here are the answers to your questions, which I remember:
1- within March 2014 I think will be completed the first part of the long term validation and the results will be published positive or negative as they might be.
2- we are aiming to obtain at least 3/4 of the time of operation in self sustained mode and the remaining 1/4 with a COP>1, so that the energy produced will be more than the energy consumed also during the periods with the drive on.
3- we are working now permanently at temperature (on the surface of the heat exchanging surface) that will allow an efficiency of 40% with the Carnot cycle. In these very days ( also during Christmas) the Hot Cat is working in our USA factory with a temperature upon the external surface, before cooling, around 1 000 °C. Enormous progress has been made in these months working with the Team of our US Partner. Here I found materials, expertise, professonality and, mainly, a moving trust in me that makes me feel extremely indebted. These factors are generating a strong force, with interesting results.
4- the publication of the theory behind the so called Rossi Effect I think will be published in 2014, but this is not a guarantee, because many are the factors this decision will depend from
5- the industrial plants are already for sale, because they have already obtained the safety certification, being operated by certified operators, while the domestic appliances, which will be operated by anybody, will need time to obtain the necessary safety certifications.
Please say hello to my beloved New Hampshire, where my US work has been started in 1996….

Wishes are all we can give so far, the loooong period is necessary for a final, decisive long term validation after which will be decided which kind of investments and which kind of industrialization will have to be set up, if the results will be positive. We have studied different industrialization strategies, but the choice ( if any) will be made after the current process of validation and R&D.

I feel guilty to treat you badly…but I hope you understand that our policy is not to talk of a product that is not mature for the market, because subject to a rigorous period of validation, during which we also are refining the technology. We are collecting an enormous amount of data that shapes the technology by the day, generating patent applications by the week. Anyway:
1- We are trying many different dimensions of the modules, and the final dimensions of the industrial plants will depend on the final choice we will make, based on the results ( that, remember, could be positive, but also negative)
2- respect the numbers you cited many things can change: maybe the dimensions will be the same, maybe smaller, but nothing is still defined
3- superior powers may be reached easily just putting modules together

Safety certification is necessary and must be made by a major certification company. Laws regarding safety are basically and deonthologically the same in all the world. The E-Cat poses relevant problems in domestic applications, where not qualified Customers can use it. We should be exposed to enormous risks, also for voluntary sabotages.
Can you imagine what our enemies could do in a “friendly” apartment with an E-Cat they could buy for 1,000 $ in a shop ? This is why, realistically, domestic application cannot be a priority. It is a matter of good sense. It is not a matter of product failure to get a certification, it is a matter of a situation that makes impossible to get a certification in these conditions. Safety remains an absolute priority, wherever we put the E-Cats in the world.

1- No, the validation and R&D long- term- activity have different purposes: for us, as manufacturers, the purpose is to make good products, for the third indipendent party is to confirm the validation made for a week, verifying in a long term which are the consequences. Obviously, the Ragone number, after a 6 months period, will give more clear indications.
2- Unfortunately, no. This is an issue totally indipendent from what we can do and is very difficult any forecast

Safety is an absolute priority. An E-Cat cannot be put for sale if it has not been certified for the safety. This is the reason for which the domestic E-Cat cannot be put for sale. To sell a product that has not been certified for the safety is a risk that no serious manufacturer can accept. The sole products that have been certified for the safety, so far, are the 1 MW low temperature E-Cat and the Hot Cat reactor, whose validation is still in course and will continue probably until the first quarter of the year 2014 before the results of the validation tests will be communicated.

It is Saturday evening and I have some minute to answer better to your comment regarding the production and safety derivatives.
The opportunity to bring LENR to market has long been a dream. The more I work with my US Partners, the more I learn about the diverse needs and plans needed to achieve success. As I’ve said previously, my focus, in my position of chief scientist, continues to be on the testing and development work. I do not know when my work will be completed, but when we will have consolidated results, they will be shared with the scientific community by means of publications, whatever the score, positive or negative as it might be.
It is vital all testing be done throughly and in consideration of the requirements of the market. This process continues and we utilize the results to inform our ability to bring the different features of our technology to the market. There is a significant number of factors to consider in this process, so we remain focused on the task. Such task encompasses also the extremely important issues concerning safety: safety is an essential requirement and any product can be put in market only after the safety certification has been reached.

Wishing the best to you also, the theory behind our effect I think has reached an acceptable level of experimental confirmation ( should we adopt the sigma evaluation, we are around 5); we are still working very hard, though, on the validation and R&D regarding the LENR we are dealing with. I can’t wait to publish the theory, as you can understand, but I can’t, for obvious IP related industrial issues. When such issues will be resolved we will publish all the results, even if negative.

As I said, the results will be communicated after the end of the validation tests in course. The difference between the tests in course and the ones done in past are essentially based upon the duration, which means that the reactors are reliable in a long term. It is true that we already made long term tests, but not with a third party. I think it is not scientifically correct to say ” I am optimist”, I prefer to say ” We are measuring”.

As for my work, in this period we are limiting our work to a long, rigorous, difficult work of validation and R&D that leaves not time to talk too much. This is for us a ” the-less-you-talk-the-better-is-period”. We are collecting and recording an enormous amount of data and the results of our V-R&D ( Validation- Research and Development) work will be published as soon as the work will have been completed.

I am no more involved in patent strategy: I must say that in this period I am working very well because I have no more to think about patents, production, daily business, etc etc, but only to the R&D and the science of the reactors. I do not know if the results of this work will be positive or negative, as I said many times we will share the information about the results at the end of this cycle of work, but one thing is sure: now I can work full time on the technology, at the maximum of my possibilities, integrated in a team of top level. I feel like ” playing in the majors”. I also am working in an area at very high technological level and strongly industrialized, where there is easy access to any necessary instrumentation we need: when I need some instrument I have just to ask for it, and I receive it in matter of days, if not hours.
Warm Regards,
A.R.

No, the third party validation is, obviously, totally indipendent from our internal reports. As I said the tests are made upon two different plants, in two different locations and there are no contacts between the two. I am working, as the chief scientist, to make the R&D upon one plant, in one place, while the 3rd indipendent party works in another place. I do not know when and where the 3rd indipendent party will publish.
Warm Regards,

The commercialization of the industrial plants is in course, for the domestic we have explained many times the safety certification issue.
The technology is anyway under a rigorous program of third party validation and internal R&D and velidation, and the results, positive or negative, will be shared as soon as the work will have been completed by the scientists who are making the validation.

Make energy at much lower cost and without pollution.
Make jobs.
That’s why our Team is working and making a rigorous cycle of a very long term validation, to get the maximum possible reliability, efficiency, safety. I have the honour, in this period, to work not only with high level scientists and engineers, but also with workers with outstanding capacity and skills. We are making every day a progress, but I must warn that our technology is still in a phase of R&D and validation and that we will share any information, positive or negative, when we will have completed the validation in course. As a matter of fact, we have on course two validations, one made by a third indipendent party, that is carrying on the work initiated in March 2013 and that will continue in 2014, one by us. The two validations are on course in two different plants, each indipendent from the other. I think that the publication of all this work will be very interesting, indipendently from the results, positive or negative as they might be. The third party validation will be published indipendently from us on a scientific magazine, while the report of the validation made by us will be published in a Report of the Company.

1- Of course yes: the Team I am working with is a team that already dedicate enormous resources upon targets inspired by the sense of duty toward God and Mankind. The motto of the USA is “In God we trust” and we are working ( vibrating) within this field of energy as particles in a Universe in evolution.
2- “Memory Book”? I hope to rely on memories as late as possible. When a man seats on his own “memories” means has nothing to future anymore ( “to future”: does not exist as a verb, but works well! It is a “virtual verb”).

You must put a distinction between the third party indipendent tests ( that are totally indipendent from our commercial strategy) and the tests related to our internal R&D. I can speak only for our internal R&D, about which,as I said, the uses and operation of the E-Cats remain in the development phase. We are utilizing a number of controls and testing a variety of uses, this is a very rigorous process, made by expert scientists. It is simply too soon to speculate on what the results of our work will be. I remain confident in our work and our team.

Dear Andrea,
After the 3rd party report was published in May, there was discussion here that a 6-month E-Cat validation test would be performed. Is this test going forward, and if so, has it already started?
Many thanks,
Frank Acland
392. Andrea Rossi
September 4th, 2013 at 6:30 PM
Frank Acland:
As we said, a 6 months long validation test had to be made, and I repeated that validation of the E-Cat is in course. As always, I will not give any specific information regarding the validation test in course, with exception of the fact that this test will last more than 6 months. The results will be published after the test will have been completed, whatever the results, positive or negative.
I do not know where the publication will be made, because it does not depend on me. Also this long run test is being performed by an indipendent commettee, financed by institutions totally indipendent from us. Obviously the location in which the test is in course will be disclosed in the publication that will be made. I can only say that it is in the USA factory of a Customer. The E-Cats under test have been manufactured completely in the USA, in the factory of the US Manufacturer, indipendently from me: therefore also the manufacturing has been made by an indipendent- from- me party.

Yes, a validation of the theory is in course, but “validation” for a theory is an oxymoron…better say a study of sustainability, to check that there are not violations of consolidated Physics principles . I am studying with Scientists the issue, and the study will reach its summit in October. I think no Physics principles have been violated, I just studied as well as I have been able the existing ones.

No new physics have to be expected from my work, just a better use of the Physics we already have.

Andrea,
In order for R&D to serve manufacturing, manufacturing must anticipate the next version of the product. If retooling costs of the factory are too great, new designs with reduced manufacturing costs and better performance will never make it into production. Phased improvement solves the problem of perfect being the enemy of good.
The question is: Are you designing your factory floor with rapid retooling in mind?

Paul:
R&D and validation is very expensive. Preparation of the factory and manufacturing issues are very expensive too. The effort is strong in both sectors. Leadership in this competition between R&D and manufacturing is not a number, but it is an integral whose area is limited by the projections of the time whose values are put on the x axis, the projections of the function of x, which is the money invested, and the segment of time considered ( the interval ab of the x axis where the projections of time pass through to reach the function).

The sales of the domestic E-Cat will start after the following conditions will be satisfied:
1- the safety certification is obtained: the certification process is still in course, and such certification will not be granted until enough statistics will be available from the industrial plants. To certify the safety of appliances that will not be operated by certified operators is all but easy.
2- the IP protection has to be assessed: all the clowns around that are saying they have the technology, will be able to substitute their mock up ( and their unsustainable theories) with our E-Cats, slightly modified, and really compete with us when they will be able to buy for small amounts an E-Cat.
3- to avoid the point 2 we must be able and ready to manufacture million of pieces per month, to have prices enough low to forbid the foes to compete.
The points 2 and 3 can be assessed only after the point 1 is completed, therefore is impossible, now, to give dates. Therefore, all the persons that have made pre-orders must wait patiently. Pre orders are not binding, they just assure a position in the waiting list from when the domestic E-Cats will be for sale.
Said this, I must also repeat that the E-Cat technology is undergoing rigorous testing and validation and the results- positive, negative or inconclusive- will provide further guidance about its potential.

A.R.

In this period all we need is work, much more than talk. The work of production organization, testing , products evolution we are making is titanic, and the time for talking is very short.
At a personal level, I am gratified that you and others continue to be interested in what we are doing relating to the technology . I hope you will understand, for now, we need to be allowed the opportunity for further assessment, testing, production organization and validation.

2- We have great hopes for the E-Cat and what it can accomplish and we are pleased about the findings of the other scientists who have participated in evaluating it so far. As this technology is still in the development stage and undergoing rigorous review, we want to allow the continued process of testing that technology to determine its potential and uses. We are pleased with our progress to date and will share more as our work continues.
3- Technological development can require a long process, involving many changes as a technology moves forward. E-Cat is undergoing that process now. This process will continue as long as needed, until such time as the team believes the technology is able to fulfill its promise in commercial settings.
4- E-Cat is still also in a phase of R&D, as we continue this work more findings will be released and additional technical information will be provided once practicable. As I focus on continuing my research, I will not be able to respond to each specific question.

2- We have great hopes for the E-Cat and what it can accomplish, and I am pleased about the findings of the other scientists who have participated in evaluating it so far.

I am pleased with our progress to date and I will share more as our work continues.
AND HERE IS AN UPDATE OF TODAY, JULY 8TH:
The past three days have been holidays for most, but for us have been a tremendous period of work during which we made a historic page for what concerns our tech: for the first time, an E-Cat module, entirely produced by our USA Partner in the new factory ( a magnificence), charged with the charge made by the Partner’s CEO, using the materials we teached to buy, prepare,manipulate, treat, to make the charges, assembled , insulated, has started its operation, and the results are the same of the E-Cats built by us. This event means that for the first time an E-Cat not built by me, not controlled by me and not charged by me, not tested in my factory, but manufactured from third parties upon our instructions and know how has worked properly. This is the first unit of the plant that will give to the factory of our USA Partner all its necessary thermal energy, and is also the school ship for the employees. It is very important that it has been completely made by the Customer, not by me: it is the first of millions, but the first is always special. We celebrated with Coca Cola ( alcohol is forbidden in that factory). All the former plants, even if built in the USA, had been supplied with reactors cores made by me, so this is a very important step.
3- Technological development can require a long process, involving many changes as a technology moves forward. E-Cat is undergoing that process now. This process will continue as long as needed, until such time as the team believes the technology is able to fulfill its promise in commercial settings.
4- E-Cat is still also in a phase of R&D, as I continue this work more findings will be released and additional technical information will be provided once practicable. As I focus on continuing my research, I will not be able to respond to each specific question.

Hi Dr. Rossi. I am very excited to hear that plant production is now underway. Like many others, I am looking forward to hearing about people’s experiences with the new technology as it filters into the marketplace. I have a few questions for you.
1. For how long now has production been underway? Was there an official start date?
2. How many orders have you received?
3. Will production just be in the US or will factories be build in other countries as well?
Thank you for your time, and good luck in your fascinating work.

3- Ni is contained ermetically in the sector of the E-Cat that has not to be opened by the Customer. Our .employees handle Ni powders with all the necessary protection. Crashes of the internal part of the E-Cat are impossible if not voluntary, due to the shielding. In case of overheating you have no more powders, because Ni melts. Intrinsic safety.

The COP issue has to be defined product by product, contract by contract, depending on the situations, I have already talked diffusely about it. As for what concerns the COP calculated by the Third Indipendent Party, it has been calculated to be sure beyond any reasonable doubt of the effect, therefore all the possible error margins have been calculated considering the worst possible scenario: combining all the cuts of COP due to the negative margin of error, a big bunch is gone; besides, a lower temperature has been maintained for to have a nil possibility of breakage, and so on.

Yes, my position is changed. After the publication of the Report of the Third Indipendent Party the aggressivity against my person has changed register. The snakes prepared the ground for forces of another order of magnitude. Now I am running real risks, not deriving from the clowns and their snakes, but from higher echelons, supplied by deadly force. I got specific information. I am safe in the USA, not outside. Snakes are marginal . Now they are just keeping up stupidities, like ” in Uppsala Rossi one year ago made a test that did not go well ” ( yes, is true: one year ago I made a test in Uppsala that we have not been able to make because a welding of the reactor broke up: so, what?), or like ” 13 years ago ( !!!) LTI made a contract with DOD to supply Seebeck Effect generators that did not work” , but it is a misrepresentation: in the year 2000 LTI agreed with DOD to test an industrialized version of a prototype working by the Seebeck Effect: such prototype, made by myself in 1000 hours, therefore extremely expensive, had reached 20% of efficiency; we had to make an industrialized version, economically sustainable, but I have not been able to do it, in fact the efficiency of the thermoelectric modules after industrialized production fall down to 5%, made by modules of 2 to 5 Watts of power, destined to be combined to make any power. The research has been made with the clear knowledge of the fact that the passage from a manufacturing made handycraft by me to an industrialized version could not work. The honesty of our work has been so clear, that DOD continued for years to work with LTI for other issues.
The snakes and the clowns, unfortunately, are not our enemies, they are a piece of cake ( snakes are delicious boiled, with some mayonnaise and champagne).

And we have not been slowed down even if an army of snakes has tried, and is trying, to boycott our work with all the possible dirt plays.

The Swedish formula depends on the Licensees, not from us. Leonardo Corp sells the 1 MW plants, and the owners of the plants can use them the way they prefer: if they want to invest in a plant to sell energy, they can do it. We just make a due dioligence on the final Customer who buys the energy, before accepting the solution. Our Swedish licensee has proposed to us a Customer we like, therefore they are free to buy a plant to put it in the concern of their Customer and sell the energy. We gave them green light, but this is an initiative of theirs, not of ours.

Dear Steven N. Karels:
Theoretically there are not limits in this sense, but there are considerations connected with the intellectual property that limits the convenience of these “mini”Cats. Think, for example, to the Clowns who are saying that they have been able to steal our technology: today they have a mock up, an empty box waiting ( from us) for real technology to be filled with. Should they be able to buy for small money a device, the day after they could announce a real test, made by an indipendent party, and they are just a paradigm of a crowd like them. We will put in the market small devices only after we will be able to produce in mass quantity, to gain a competitivity enough to forbid a steal of IP. This issue is bound to the certification process: with a certification process done, we can robotize the production, prices will be unsustainable for wide competition, we will be able to get a strong share of the market: after that, even if unavoidably the competition will be born, our efforts will have been prized adequately.

The necessity to stay behind the curtain of secrecy is due to the necessity to work without disturbments from the enemies until the plants are operating.
We want not to be disturbed during the initial period during which technological problems have to be adjusted. You can imagine what will happen after it will be known where our plants are operating, and we need to be prepared also under the security point of view, with a consolidated operation of the plants. Only after this the USA Partner will make a press conference.

Redazione NextMe.it:
1- COP depends from temperature and many other factors. The Examiners also considered all the margin of errors in the worst situation against us, to be conservative at maximum. They wanted to be sure beyond any possible and reasonable doubt. For example: they wanted a wood table to put on all the electric and electronic devices, they wanted to use their own cables of their own measurement devices, they wanted to lift and seat themselves any component to be sure no other cables or any kind of contact was there…combining all the margin of error against us we lost a lot of efficiency, but it is fine, since the scope of the test was not commercial, it was merely scientific: the Professors wanted to know beyond any reasonable doubt if there was an excess of energy or not
2- Yes, I substantially agree. The differences are described in the report
3- Because of the 1st principle of thermodynamic. See also the Ragone diagram
4- We are under NDA
5- No, I do not see any nexus. The certification for the industrial plants has been granted, though
6- We delivered to our US Partner. He will deliver to his Customers
7- Wrong: the test of the Indipendent Third Party, made in March, has nothing to do with the test made by the US Partner on April 30 and May 1. The test made by the Customer has made possible for us to continue to work for the Customer. It has been better than expected, we got results better that what we has guaranteed.

The US Partner will not disclose himself until the public presentation of the 1 MW plant in operation.
By the way: thank you for the important link: I did not know Elforsk AB, never knew about them, and I am very glad to read what they write, very honoured. At last I know who paid for the ( high) expenses of the test: air return tickets, hotel, restaurant, car rents for 7 days , instrumentation etc… not a small sum. The Professors refused for us to pay even a taxi…

Dear Steven N.Karels:
a- I think so
b- our loss of mass is so irrilevant, that weight does not change enough to make relevant the difference. As you correctly say, the other factors make totally useless consider this issue. Anyway, I do not see why not take the weight before and after, is not a problem.
c- Ithe difference that has been found during this test is so high that an increase will not change the validity of the evidence, but surely the longer the duration of the test, the higher the order of magnitude of the distance
d- the methodology that has been chosen is better because direct, not depending from the heat exchanger, which the measurement indirect. Commercially speaking, the situation is different, Customers are interested to the measurement of the efficiency of the plant. The test of the Professors had scientific purposes, not commercial. It has been different the test we made on April 30 through May 1 to validate the 1 MW plant for the Customer: it has been made measuring the fluid after the heat exchangers, for example, but that was a commercial test related to a plant of we supplied also the heat exchangers, therefore what was important was the efficiency of the plant, not of the mere E-Cat.

IMPORTANT
Dear Enrico:
We will produce different sizes, but after the Intellectual Property issues will have been resolved. I thank you very much for your question, because you give me the chance to clear one important issue that emerged from the comments: the Third Party that has done the tests and written the report did NOT have the will of analyzing and probe the internal details of the reactors and the composition of the charges, because these issues are, obviously, industrial secrets; the will of the examiners was to make a calorimetric measurement to estabilish beyond any reasonable doubt the existance of the phenomenon. For this reason it is ridiculous to complain that the E-Cat and its charge has been made by me, since only Andrea Rossi and his Partners, at the moment, are able to make the E-Cats and their charges. Every person can understand, if not biased, that to make a measurement of the energy consumed versus the energy produced does not depend from the knowledge of how the reactor is made and how is made the charge: as a matter of fact, the charge has been weighted ( read carefully the report) and the weight of the charge is by orders of magnitude lower than the weight that would have been necessary of any known fuel to produce the amount of energy that has been produced during the 120 hours of test. See the Ragone diagram published in the Report.

Be aware to digit exactly the address I reported above if you want to read the original Report)

Dear Dr Joseph Fine:
Please don’t go too far: just, for now, let’s limit to what I wrote about the Activator/E-Cat cycle. Please read carefully what I wrote. More than that is not possible to get, so far. Our basic module is made by an apparatus in which we have 2 components: an activator, which consumes abour 900 Wh/h and produces about 910 Wh/h of heat. This heat activates the E-Cat and then goes to the utilization by the Customer, so that its cost is paid back by itself. This activator stays in function for the 35% of the operational time of the syspem of the apparatus. The E-Cat, activated by the heat of the Activator, works for about the 65% of the operational time, producing about 1 kWh/h without consuming any Wh/h from the grid. Combining these modules we can make E-Cats of 1 kW , 10 kW, 100 kW, 1 MW , respectively, of power.
Warm Regards,
A.R.
497. Andrea Rossi
May 12th, 2013 at 8:04 AM
Dear Steven N. Karels:
a- when the activator is on the E-Cat is off, when the E-Cat is on the Activator is off. When the Activator is turned off the temperature rises, becauce the E-Cat is activated, when the Activator is turned on the temperature lowers, because the E-Cat goes off. If we consider 100 hours of operation, for about 35 hours the Activator is on and the E-Cat is off, while for about 65 hours the E-Cat is on and the Activator is off. We reached a good stability for this reason: the Activator gives to the E-Cat enough energy to give good performance, but not enough to escape from control, like a Mouse which make a Cat nervous, but not too much; then, the Activator stops, the CaT goes on, until he returns to sleep; at this point the Mouse- activator is turned on, but the temperature goes down because the E-Cat is off; at this point the Cat becomes again nervous, and immediately the Mouse- activator is turned off, while again the temperature raises, and so on. The invention of this cycle, regulated by a complex software, allows to reach high temperatures in good stability. The important thing is that also the Activator has a charge, so that it reaches a COP more than 1, paying for itself: for this reason the energy that the Activator consumed is paid for by itself and does not affect the COP of the E-Cat. You know how I invented this system? I was in North Carolina and observed in a garden of the hotel a sleeping cat: a squirrel passed fast close to the cat, and the cat made some move to reach the squirrell, but the squirrel disappeared and the cat returned to sleep…that’t learning from Nature!
b- No

Dott.Rossi,
I have seen a picture from Daniele Passerini and some other about the transportation from Bologna to Ferrara (so was written. They say they are form The Journal but I wasn’t able to find a link from here.
1) Which of them can you confirm?
2) Those aren’t the US shipping. Can we expect more to come?
BTW, the standard container originally shown in picture one year ago’ for the 1MW cat now looks smaller, about 4.5 to 5 meters, out of standard measures (6-12 meters) and thinner as can stay on a truck trailer with sideboards up.
3) Is it actually smaller that the standard 20 foot container?
4) Why you didn’t choose to keep all external “things” and the “hat” inside and protected?
5) Is that the final version?
6) Is it correct that you did optimize the packaging?
Thanks, Gherardo
508. Andrea Rossi
May 4th, 2013 at 5:30 PM
Dear Gherardo:
1- The photos are published on this blog, just look at the comment sent by Eng. Fulvio Fabiani
2- We are not authorized to publish any photo regarding the shipping to the USA
3- yes
4- because inside there is not enough space
5- nothing is final, but death, and we are pretty alive
6- yes
Warm Regards,
A.R.

Dear Steven N. Karels:
0- I did not say that we delivered a 1 MW Hot Cat, I said that a 1 MW Hot Cat should have that volume, but we did not yed make one. We made smaller modules, still in a phase of industrialization. What we delivered is a low temperature 1 MW E-Cat plus experimental prototypes of Hot Cat, fueled by electric power or gas.
1- No
2- The 1 MW low temperature plant has 106 modules, each of 10 kW
3- This information is confidential

May 2nd, 2013 at 3:34 AM
Dear Dr Joseph Fine:
0- the photos of the delivery test will be published on this blog within several days, after the permission of the Customer
1- internally
2- right
3- the quantum of a 1 MW plant is 10 kW
Warm Regards,
A.R.
512. Andrea Rossi
May 1st, 2013 at 12:04 PM
Dear Gian Luca:
Oh, I understand. The Indipendent Third Party will surely publish the report of the test made. I have to repeat that the “when and where” does not depend on me. Consider that the time that normally is spent between a test made by a third party and the publication is 6 months. The tests have been completed on the 24th of March, but I think the publication will arrive before 6 months will be expired from that date.
Warm Regards,
A.R.

May 1st, 2013 at 10:43 AM
Dear Andrea Rossi,
Congratulations of the delivery of the systems. I understand “delivery” to mean acceptance of the systems by the Customer at your location.
1. Any chance of releasing the nature and pass/fail conditions of the acceptance tests?
2. How long did the acceptance testing last (hours, days?)
3. Can I assume the Customer had his technical contract representatives at your location to witness the testing?
4. Was technical documentation (training documentation, users manual, etc) provided at the time of acceptance or will that come later?
5. Were spare parts included with the order? If so, what is the maintenance philosophy (your people do all the maintenance on-call or is the Customer having his maintenance personnel trained)?
514. Andrea Rossi
May 1st, 2013 at 11:58 AM
Dear Steven N. Karels:
0- yes
1- the plant has been tested to check COP and safety.
2- 24 hours
3- of course
4- will come now
5- some
6- in this case our Customer does all
Warm Regards,

Dear georgehants:
you are right, but we did all we had to do: we are manufacturing and delivering our plants and a Third Party Indipendent Test has been done, while its publication I think will be made soon, even if it does not depend on us: as I many times explained, being “indipendent” does not “depend” on us, by obvious definition.
All we can do is work as much as we can and make all the things that depend on us. About the Attacks against me, please consider this equation: 0 x 1000^n = 0, wherein n is any positive number.
Warm Regards,
A.R.

April 28th, 2013 at 3:16 PM
Dear Andrea,
Thank you for your clarifications about the delivery of the plants. We are having a discussion about this over at E-Cat World.
Just to be sure what is going to happen:
1. Are all the plants to be delivered at the same time to your USA partner?
2. Are they being shipped from Italy to the US?
3. Can we have many photos?!
Thank you!

Dear Brian:
We are delivering, this month, to our USA Partner three plants, one industrial plant of 1 MW which is a low temperature heat producing plant, one prototype of Gas fgueled E-Cat and one prototype of Hot Cat plant. The prototypes are to study them and study their industrialization, while their certification is in course. The duty of the 1 MW plant is industrial heat production. The delivery will be made this week.

Dear Andrea Rossi,
You said, “The safety certification for the Hot Cat is going on regularly, no obstacles.” Does this HotCat certification cover substantially also your mouse-cat systems, or is the mouse-cat different enough that it will require its own certification process which hasn’t started yet?

Dear ing. Rossi,
from time I didn’t read anything about G-Cat (Gas-Cat technology). Are these reactors full operating and certified so they could be in production?
Have you sold some “low temperature 1MW plant” (to be delivered in future) equipped with these G-Cat reactors instead of E-Cat (Electric-Cat)?
Best Regards
539. Andrea Rossi

Dear Dr. Rossi,
just a couple questions, I hope this doesn’t bother you.
if tomorrow morning the government of a western nation would ask you to build (or perhaps would ask for the license of your tech) the thermal apparatuses for a new 1GW thermo-electric plant, would you accept?
I’m about 30 now, do you think I’ll be able to take a trip to low earth orbit with a lenr-propelled vessel, in my lifetime?
Thanks
544. Andrea Rossi
April 23rd, 2013 at 4:52 PM

Dear Andrea Rossi,
Usually in business, when there is a new product released, there are news releases, product brochures and an advertising campaign. None of this appears to be happening with eCat technology products.
Can you clarify your business strategy on how you will “get the word out” on your product(s)?
a. “Word of Mouth”
b. Demonstrations
c. Selectivly approaching targeted customers
550. Andrea Rossi
April 18th, 2013 at 7:47 AM
Dear Steven N. Karels:
Selectively approaching targeted Customers, at least for the first stage of marketing, which is called the “Pioneers stage”.
This choice for 2 main reasons:
1- consolidate the technology in an easy to assist environment
2- protect the I.P. during the first stage of expansion
Warm Regards,
A.R.

April 18th, 2013 at 5:46 AM
Dear Paul:
Commercial priority: we are developing with our USA Partner a robotized line for the reactors even for the industrial plants. We will have also to continue to manufacture plants for heat production. Technological priority is electric power production.

Hello Dr Rossi,
Here are my questions :
1) Can you tell us how long before people will feel the first effects of your inventions (e-cat, hot cat)? Do we speak in terms of weeks, months, years or decades ?
2) What will be the first scopes ?
3) According to you, what is the trigger that will cause a big spread of LENR reality in mainstream media ?

Dear Wladimir:
The certification protocols for households do not work that way. We are following the procedure suggested by the Certificators. The procedure suggested by you does not resolve the core of the problem, which is the domestic use, made by unskilled persons in normal houses, without any particular precaution. We already have obtained the certification for the industrial plants, the safety of the E-Cats has already been certified in safe environments, where professional structures and persons are involved.
Warm Regards,
A.R.
556. Andrea Rossi
April 12th, 2013 at 3:54 PM
Dear Claud:
No, we will put the domestic E-Cat in the market, in due time: certification and recognition of the IP are critical issues.

April 11th, 2013 at 4:04 AM
Dear Mr. Rossi
We learned from you that Your 10KW Ecat home unit will be released to the market after a (undefined?) period of experience with the 1MW industrial plant.
A few thoughts:
At the market introduction of microwave ovens and mobile phones
authorities deliberately accepted, that harmful radiation is emitted,
although no long-term experience was available.
The same also happens very often on pharmaceutical products.
The difference to the Ecat will be probably the missing lobby.
To gain experience quickly, the 1MW plant should be produced to prime costs
and sold in large numbers.
I am aware that the intellectual property of the system in moment is priceless,
but I am convinced, that the production costs are only a fraction of the current selling price.
I`m afraid that with the current strategy the launch of the 1MW plant and the 10KW home units will have a strong delay, and in my view I think this is highly vulnerable.
I have few questions to this topic:
1. ) Why the 1MW plant is so expensive?
2.) Do you (or your background) consciously maintain the 1MW plant so expensive to delay the market launch?
3.) Do you (and your background) have a honest interest in a fast market introduction?
4.) Why there are no campaigns from your “big” Partners to build a lobby for the Ecat?
5.) How long ist the period defined to collect experience from the 1MW plant and to release the 10KW ecat?
I know these are unpleasant questions,
but nonetheless I’m a big fan of You and your technology
and I wish you every success for your project.
Sincerely
G. Westreicher/Austria
558. Andrea Rossi

Dear Andrea,
You mention you are not going to go public at this time, and that you enter into strategic partnerships with individuals and corporations. Does this mean the Leonardo Corporation is still an independent entity? From some of your comments it seemed possible that you had merged with a larger corporation.
Many thanks and best wishes,

Dear Mr Rossi,
1- Do you think we will see any long time data from the military units.
2- I have started to design commercial absorption chillers for large commercial buildings using the principal of the hot cat, I am assuming the connection between the ECAT and the chiller unit will be basic plumbing. Long term data makes the customer more relaxed about it actually working.
3- Also can we vary the temp of the ECAT or is it one temp.
Thank you

April 1st, 2013 at 8:05 AM
Dear Gherardo:
1- airplanes and cars are well known and very diffused apparatuses, so statistics are possible and certifications are consequently possible. Besides, you cannot drive a car, let alone an airplane, without a license. On the contrary, E-Cats are apparatuses without operation statistics, yet, and a Customer could buy an E-Cat , for example, in Home Depot and carry it home to use it without any license: obviously this is not acceptable by a Certifier until the apparatus is very well known after industrial applications, for which certified and licensed operators are necessary.
2- education is not quite lenghty, is the same as the education you need to drive a car, let alone an airplane
3- yes, this is true
You should have already won some bet with your friends!
Warm Regards,
A.R.
566. Andrea Rossi
April 1st, 2013 at 5:43 AM
Dear Gherardo:
1- they used their own instruments
2- no
3- it matters
4- we decided to make this third party test because the proposal has been very honest, not from persons bound to our competitors aiming only to make espionage, as happened in past: some of these past wannabe validators have been discovered during a demo with unpermitted devices hidden under the sweater, or they, after writing open letters to test our device, turned out few months later to make tests in competition with us… This time the proposal was very honest and serious, we accepted, once and for ever before the industrial diffusion, to be subject to a third party indipendent test.
Warm Regards,

Dear tom conover:
No, the substance of the problem is not the power, is the LENR system that has to be certified for a utilization made by unskilled persons. The difference between an industrial plant and a domestic plant, from the point of view of the liability, does not depend from the power, but from the fact that an industrial plant is operated by certified operators, that will have to study the manuals and make an exam to obtain our license to operate, while a domestic plant can be bought and operated by persons that are not even supposed to read ( let alone study) the instructions manual.

We never worked upon funding, our strategy has always been based upon making working plants with our own money and get the funding from the payments of the Customers. This has always been our policy, because I believe in my work.
Warmest Regards,

Dear Andrea,
It’s interesting to hear about the plant installed by the military customer, and to learn that you think the customer is satisfied.
Are you satisfied with the performance of this plant so far? How closely has it met your expectations and specifications?
Many thanks, and best wishes,
Frank Acland

Dear Gian:
1- yes, we are in dayly contact with him
2- yes, the recharge has been made
3- information is confidential

Dear Giuseppe:
1- the cost of 1 kWh made by the E-Cats will be around 1-2 cts, I suppose
2- at ther moment the price of a 1 MW plant is 1.5 million $
3- I do not know what can happen at this regard, but jobs will have their weight
4- as I always said, energy demand makes necessary an integration of the different sources, with advantage for any source.
Warm Regards,
A.R.

March 7th, 2013 at 5:42 AM
Dear Andrea,
regarding the 1 MW plant you are delivering in the next weeks, can you tell us (I only recall it is a Hot Cat type) which will be the end-use of the plant? Will it be used as a pre heater in industrial processes or remote warming? Which will be the max temperature achieved?
Thank you
Neri B.
588. Andrea Rossi
March 7th, 2013 at 6:49 AM
Dear Neri B.:
Remote warming, 110 °C.
Warm Regards,
A.R.
589. Andrea Rossi
February 26th, 2013 at 5:46 PM
Dear Frank Acland:
1- No, we secured the safety certification for the E-Cats
2- the certification for the Hot Cat is in course ( advanced). Obviously we talk of the induatrial plants.
3- The product certification is also in course.
Warmest Regards, and still a big Hug to your Readers.

Dear Francesco Toro:
I suppose a couple of years will be enough to arrive to the domestic certified.
Warm Regards,
A.R.
591. Andrea Rossi
February 14th, 2013 at 3:35 AM
Dear Francesco Toro:
1- we cannot deliver domestic E-Cats, as I said, before certification
2- we already are doing restricted tests
3- same as in 2
4- same as in 2
5- we collect the data an make the consequent modifications as a standard procedure
6- it is impossible, legal actions are infinite in these cases. The sole protection is the industrial secret. The procedure suggested by you is unapplicable in a context of IP protection. As I already said, the domestic apparatuses can be protected only by their competitiveness, but such competitiveness is possible only with big numbers and big numbers are impossible if the domestic E-Cat is not certified.
The industrial plants we are delivering are anyway useful also for the certification of the domestic, through the statistics: it takes just time and numbers.
Warm Regards,
A.R.
592. Andrea Rossi

Dear Charlie Sutherland:
The 1 MW plants are already for sale.

593. Andrea Rossi
February 13th, 2013 at 2:51 PM
Dear Francesco Toro,
Your comment is important because puts a problem of general interest for all the persons that have made a pre-order for a domestic E-Cat. As you know, all the persons that made a pre-order, like you, have not been requested to pay any money, because we cannot confirm the acceptation of the order until the E-Cat is certified and for sale; every person who has made a pre-order will receive, at that point, a precise offer and will be free to accept to confirm the pre-order or retrive it, obviously paying nothing at all in this last case.
We have obtained the safety certification for our 1 MW E-Cat.
We cannot sell domestic E-Cats, because they have not been certified, and the way you suggest should be, for us, an elusion of the law. We must fully respect the law.
Again thank you for your enthusiasm, which is the source of your impacience…
Warm Regards,
A.R.
594. Andrea Rossi
February 13th, 2013 at 1:09 PM
Dear Francesco Toro:
I understand your impatience, I agree with you. The domestic E-Cats are too a big liability for the certificators, because they will not be operated by professional and certified operators. In a domestic apparatus there is not even the certainty that the manual will be read by the Customer. In this situation is necessary a sufficient diffusion of the industrial plants to get the statistics necessary to make sustainable the liability to a safety certificator.
It is just matter of time, we must be patient.
Warm Regards,
A.R.
595. Andrea Rossi
February 10th, 2013 at 9:39 AM
Dear Frank Acland:
1- the Hot Cats can be driven either by electric power or gas, but also a hybrid system is doable
2- with the outsourcing network already organized, if necessary we can manufacture thousands per day, if necessary
3- one module of 10 kW take 5 man hours, right now, but with a robotized line this number can be riduced to less than 1 hour
4- it is very difficult to answer, because manufacturing is made by many persons, considering our employees and our suppliers. Answer 3 gives you the work force necessary to manufacture.
Warm Regards,
A.R.

Dear Dr Rossi,,
Can you explain a little more about the “gas stream” for us please? Is this meaning “gas fueled” or “vaporized steam pressure” or “direct energy to electricity conversion”? If not, to what do you refer? All of your comments are received with joy and respect.
Thank you!
597. Andrea Rossi
February 10th, 2013 at 6:50 AM
Dear Tomconover:
By “stream” I just wanted to mean the gas- fueled- plants- line of production.
Warm Regards,
A.R.
598. Andrea Rossi
February 9th, 2013 at 9:25 AM
Dear Greg Leonard:
1- no, it is more fit than the Hot cat for low temperature applications
2- yes, up to 600 Celsius
3- yes: the gas stream is growing up seriously
4- yes
Warm Regards,
A.R.

February 7th, 2013 at 6:03 PM
Dear Brian:
We are working very hard on the Hot Cats deliveries and on their safety certifications. As you know, upon them is in course an Indipendent Third Party Validation that recently has been prolonged with further tests. I suppose that the publication of the results will be made by March, after the end of the tests. Again, I want to remember that the timing of the Third Party work and of their publication does not depend on my will. By March also the safety certification ( which also is in course) will be advanced. The delivery of the first plant should be made in March/April. We are doing our best, but consider that we are making our path through an inexplored jungle: nevertheless, we are respecting the scheduling we assigned to ourselves in November.
Warm Regards,
A.R.

Dear Steven N. Karels:
We have organized a quality control system not dissimilar to what happens for other industrial plants that cannot be tested like light bulbs… we have nothing to invent about this issue. About the protection of the IP, this is a confidential item.

February 5th, 2013 at 2:42 PM
Dear Koen Vandewalle:
The scientists are still working and I have no idea of what they are thinking. I do not think we will know what they know and what they think before the publication of the report.
About what we are doing: I do not know if it is big or not. All I know is that we are working very hard to deliver the industrial plant we have to put in operation as scheduled. In Great Britain they say: my garden is smaller that England, but bigger than a stamp.
Warm Regards,
A.R.
602. Andrea Rossi
February 5th, 2013 at 10:19 AM
Dear Steven N. Karels:
a- yes, this year the Hot Cat certification should be completed
b- no, absolutely. The report of the Third Party is totally indipendent from us and out of our control, as well as are their measurements. Also we cannot know where the report will be published and when
c- yes, heating systems for industrial purposes and eventually power production
d- yes, absolutely.
Thank you for your questions,
Warm Regards,
A.R.
603. Andrea Rossi
February 5th, 2013 at 3:09 AM
Dear Michele Dalessandro:
To make short a long story:
1- indipendent third party tests are in course, the publication will be probably made within February/March, indipendently from the results, on a scientific magazine after peer reviewing
2- we are manufacturing industrial plants, whose delivery is foreseen starting from March/April , together with our USA Partner
3- we are focusing on Hot Cats ( E-Cats at high temperature) fueled by electric power or gas
Warm Regards,
A.R.
604. Andrea Rossi
February 4th, 2013 at 5:42 PM
Dear Giuseppe:
Thank you for this question.
We are working with the Hot Cat ( the E-Cat at high temperature) since May 2012. The improvements have been remarkable, because we passed from a conceptual prototype to industrial plants that are in construction. The third party tests in course are made on a module of the Hot Cat for industrial applications. We are at the level of safety certification too. As for the theoretical issues, strong improvement has been done too. Personally, I think we have understood very well the phenomenon’s sources and this has improved the technology.
Warm Regards,
A.R.

Dear Andrea,
I hope you don’t mind more questions regarding your current manufacturing situation — we are all very curious!
1. Are you currently manufacturing the hot-cat reactors in the USA factories?
2. Are you currently building hot cat plants in the USA factories?
3. Do the USA manufacturing facilities belong to your USA partner?
4. Have any of the prototype plants built at your Italian R&D facility been delivered to non-military customers yet?
5. Will the first hot cat plant be installed at a facility belonging to your USA partner — or an external customer?
Many thanks,
Sincerely,
Frank Acland
606. Andrea Rossi
February 2nd, 2013 at 3:58 AM
Dear Frank Acland:
1- also
2- yes
3- yes
4- not yet
5- external Customer
Thank you for your attention,
Warm Regards,
A.R.
607. Yona
February 1st, 2013 at 5:32 AM
Dear Andrea Rossi
1. How many people knows the location of the factory in USA?
2. There is any concern that the location will be leaked?
Warm Regards
608. Andrea Rossi
February 1st, 2013 at 8:06 AM
Dear Yona:
1- The location is known from people who work with us: our USA Partner, the employees.
2- There is a concern bound to safety and security problems: we must be very careful on whom we employ and from whom we get technological collaboration. There is a specific safety problem for me, since I receive continuous threats. Nevertheless we are working well in this extremely important period, on the eve of crucial events.
Thank you for your attention,
Warm Regards,
A.R.
609. Brian
January 31st, 2013 at 11:37 AM
Mr. Rossi
Thank you for taking the time to answer my question.
I had a few additional questions if you feel comfortable answering them. What type of reactors are these factories making? The “warm” E-cats or the Hot-Cat? Are there existing customers with orders pending for these devices?
610. Andrea Rossi
January 31st, 2013 at 4:57 PM
Dear Brian:
1- both
2- yes
Warm Regards,
A.R.
611. Brian
January 30th, 2013 at 11:07 AM
Mr. Rossi
I was wondering if you could give us any more detail about your factories. Are they in the US? How are the E-Cats being assembled? By hand? Are the persons in charge of manufacturing aware of the IP involved or just following instructions by rote? Would it be possible for us to see some pictures of the factory?
612. Andrea Rossi
January 30th, 2013 at 6:03 PM
Dear Brian:
Our factories are in the USA. We have a R&D center in Italy, wherein we also manufacture prototypes. We are programming a manufacturing center in Sweden. All the other information are confidential, let alone the photos.
Warm Regards,
A.R.
613. Andrea Rossi
January 29th, 2013 at 11:16 PM
Dear Steven N. Karels:
1- we are working very strong to manufacture our plants. In our factories the work has never been so intense as it is in this period. Therefore the E-Cats, that soon will hit the market, will not fade, be sure. If there is around somebody saying the contrary, let them talk, while we work.
2- the report of the indipendent third party will be published, as I always said. Whatever the result
3- the efficiency and the convenience of the E-Cats is very simple to measure: the Customer looks how much energy consumes and how much energy produces: it is not difficult.
4- in a separated comment you asked issues regarding, again, what happens inside the reactor: as I already explained to you, I cannot give information about what happens inside the reactor.
Thank you for your attention,
Warm Regards,
A.R.

The 1 MW plants have been certified, are already manufactured and, as you correctly said, are made by small modules.
Warm Regards,
A.R.
616. Andrea Rossi
January 19th, 2013 at 6:37 PM
Dear Giuseppe:
We needed years to arrive to stability and reliability, allowing the certification of our modules as they are. To make bigger modules is very time consuming and in this moment we are strongly focused. Yes, the stability with bigger reactors could be doubtless more difficult to find, but not impossible. By the way, we do not need bigger reactors, think how Natire made things: with small atoms of water you make the Niagara Falls.
Warm Regards,
A.R.

January 19th, 2013 at 3:41 PM
Dear Readers:
I receive many requests of opinion about the last patents granted in matter of LENR: this comment answers to all.
None of those patents explains how the E-Cat can work. I read very shaky theories in them that never produced anything really working. The described apparatuses, that we replicated with high fidelity after the publication of such patents to check their validity, actually do not work. Everybody can try…
Every further comment is useless.
Warm Regards,
A.R.
618. Andrea Rossi

Dear Andrea Rossi,
If you are permitted, can you tell us how many, to date, Warm eCat modules and Hot eCat modules you have made, both prototype and production? I assume herein a module can output approximately 10kW of thermal power.
620. Fibb
January 14th, 2013 at 3:56 PM
Dear Ing. Rossi,
How many 1MW plants do you intend to manufacture in 2013 and 2014.
thanks

Dear Fibb:
As much as the market will ask for.

January 13th, 2013 at 3:25 AM
Dear Giuseppe:
Yes, we are working on the issue to make electric power, and we are going toward the classic Carnot cycle. We have many other technologies under focus. The power we are interested to for immediate application is 500-1000 kW.
Warm Regards,
A.R.
623. Andrea Rossi

January 7th, 2013 at 6:00 AM
Dear Steven Karels:
We are manufacturing plants for Customers. If they are competitive, they will prosper, otherwise they will not. I think they will. If they work properly or not will clearly emerge in the factories where they will go in operation.
That’s all.

Dear Nixter:
Exotic materials can interest us only when and if they are products ready to be tested.
We did not observe other phenomenons except what published here.
To silence the critics is not an issue, to satusfy the Customers yes. We are totally not interested to any problem of the critics, whose discussions are useful, sometime, anyway.
Warm Regards,

626. Andrea Rossi
January 4th, 2013 at 3:16 AM
Dear Bernie Morrissey:
Nothing is shattered: we will get the certification for the domestic E-Cats after good Industrial statistics and your pre-order will be followed by our offer. The price will not change in real value.
Obviously, the certification does not depend on us, but we will do all the possible. In the meantime also the Intellectual Property issue will be resolved. That’s easier.
Warm Regards,
A.R.
627. Andrea Rossi
January 3rd, 2013 at 5:42 PM
Dear Frank Acland:
Absolutely yes, provided we resolve the certification and intellectual property issues. The certification, in particular, is absolutely necessary ( I mean safety certification) and, believe me, there is no certificator in the world that will take the liability to certify a LENR device for domestic utilization. It is necessary that a history of safe and reliable industrial plants makes up a lattice of good statistics before this certification becomes possible. This is the truth, who says the contrary does not know the issue.
Happy new Year to all your Readers.
Warm Regards,
A.R.
628. Pekka Janhunen

December 31st, 2012 at 2:28 PM
Dear Andrea Rossi,
You stated “As I said and wrote many times, the Container of the 1 MW plant is the same tested one year ago, since to the military Customer we delivered different ones.”
Are we, therefore, to understand that you have delivered several (more than 3?) Warm eCats to a single military customer?
The scheduled release of another eCat in February/March? Is that to a non-military customer? Please clarify. Happy New Year!
631. Andrea Rossi
December 31st, 2012 at 2:42 PM
Dear Steven Karels:
I cannot give information about our military deliveries.
The civil industrial plants deliveries will start in February/March.

December 31st, 2012 at 7:02 AM
Dear Scott L.:
As I said and wrote many times, the Container of the 1 MW plant is the same tested one year ago, since to the military Customer we delivered different ones. This one, seen also in the Swedish Television, has been used to make tests, modifications, improvements, certification. It has been a tremendous tool for R&D. Now it is destined to a Customer. It will be delivered on March, after further series of modifications we have in course now. Thanks to it now we can pass to a repetitive manufacturing line. After a glorious first life as a prototype for R&D, it is on his way to go to work in a centralized heating plant to supply heat: this will be his second life.
Warm Regards,
A.R.
