Andrea Rossi – E-Cat – Errors in Rebuttal by Researchers at KTH-Uppsala Indicative of New Test?

Sorry, we forgot to mention — all translations in this article are by Gary Wright.

All of those who believe in Andrea Rossi, all of those who think Rossi is some kind of savior who will “save the world,” all of those who are disciples of Rossi, say the same thing — everyone should be looking forward — looking to the next bit of news or the results of the next test or demo. We say that is pure PROPAGANDA. THAT is exactly what keeps these types of scams alive. THAT is exactly what the scammers, like Rossi, want you to think and believe, instead of thinking for yourself. All those who only look forward in these types of scams will only see more false hope, more lies and falsehoods, more money going into the scammers’ pockets. What everyone should be doing is looking backward — to find out how the world of free energy and cold fusion/LENR arrived at the sad state of affairs it is currently in at this time.

Very shortly, Rossi claims, the report about a six-month long hot-cat test is soon to be published. We will patiently have to wait and see how far they want to stick their necks out. Moreover, since Andrea Rossi is a well-known and confirmed liar, teller of tall tales, convicted criminal, and con artist, buyer beware.

A brief message to the authors of any future report on any test of any e-cat by the crook Andrea Rossi:

  • If you put your name on a paper analyzing one of the e-cat tests or demos, and in the paper there are claims lacking in provability by others, i.e. (requires the reader to “trust” the authors), your paper is worthless to all but a scammer and in our opinion, you become an accomplice with Rossi and a partner in his scam.
  • If you put your name on a paper analyzing one of the e-cat tests or demos, and in the paper there are outrageous claims of free energy, and the testing procedure did not eliminate all of the possible ways the demo or test might have been falsified, your paper is worthless to all but a scammer and in our opinion, you become an accomplice with Rossi and a partner in his scam.
  • If you put your name on a paper analyzing one of the e-cat tests or demos and claim the e-cat is, or even the possibility of the e-cat being, a cold fusion/LENR device, and you do not prove in your paper that some type of cold fusion/LENR did in fact take place, your paper is worthless to all but a scammer and in our opinion, you become an accomplice with Rossi and a partner in his scam.
  • If you put your name on a paper analyzing one of the e-cat tests or demos and a truly independent third party cannot perform their own test to verify the claims in your report, your paper is worthless to all but a scammer and in our opinion, you become an accomplice with Rossi and a partner in his scam.

On June 3, 2014 the researchers at KTH and Uppsala University published a rebuttal in the magazine Ny Teknik called, “Only testing can determine if Rossi’s machine works” this was in answer to the three part radio show by Marcus Hansson called “The blind belief in cold fusion.”

Mats Lewan, a reporter at Ny Teknik, after being soundly chastised by Marcus for his many failures in the Rossi farce, for the first time published a photo and a comment about a test of Rossi’s e-cat in September 2012 that failed. The caption under a photo of a hot-cat says:

“Andrea Rossi’s energy unit E-Cat in a trial in September 2012, when Rossi’s instrument input electrical power proved wrong. The unit did not have any net energy. Photo: Mats Lewan”

Mats all during this time was preparing his notes and script for his book about Rossi, which he later published. Is it possible Mats thought writing anything negative about Rossi would jeopardize his book royalties? We have questioned the timing related to Mats publishing his book already.

Mats has continually failed to perform proper tests on the e-cat, and to provide complete coverage by failing to write about failed tests he was aware of, and/or was a participant in.

We will now provide an English translation of the article, “Only testing can determine if Rossi’s machine works,” along with our comments, and pointing out their errors. If this article which contains so many factual errors is any indication of the fact that their testing methods and procedures have not improved, then very few people will stand behind them and their new report. As a matter of fact this may be an indication that Rossi’s fraud and scam is coming to a close. Too many people are putting too much pressure on those around Rossi for this to continue like it has for very much longer.

Peoples’ jobs, careers, ethics, and reputations are coming more and more into focus through the lens of Rossi’s fraud and scam.

The SEC, FBI, IRS, NRC, DOE and many others are watching what is going on with this fraud and scam here in the USA. We can only assume other governments, are not too happy with people trying to force them into funding Rossi’s scams, for instance, by questions to the Italian Parliament, who remember all too well, Rossi’s fraud and seven massive toxic and hazardous waste dumps around Italy, during his Petrol Dragon scam.

The fact Rossi is only reaching for $millions instead of the $billions or even $trillions, the e-cat would be worth if it was real, should be enough for anyone running on all cylinders to stay as far away from Rossi as humanly possible.

“Only testing can determine if Rossi’s machine works”

Even the name says it all. This group is so caught up in Rossi’s web of deceit and d'”scamation” that they don’t have a clue how a high tech investor scam works. Rossi WANTS them to keep on testing and testing till they or he dies of old age. That is the only way Rossi can keep his scam going. Why do they have so much trouble seeing that?

If Rossi stops testing or putting on demos what will he have to do then, to keep his scam alive?
Think about that for a minute.

If this group were true scientists, which they are not, this is exactly what they would do.

  • They would forget all about Rossi’s latest versions.
  • Rossi has claimed to be selling the low temp e-cat since 2010 privately, and 2011 publicly.
  • They would tell Rossi, if you want us to validate an e-cat we will only test the original e-cat that was demonstrated on January 14, 2011, or one identical to it.
  • And they would continue testing that one simple device until they proved it worked as claimed or was a fraud.
  • And if Rossi refused, than all of them, the whole team, should publicly call out Rossi, exposing Rossi as the fraudster and scammer he really is anyway, as we all know.

That’s it! That’s all they have to do, but nooo, they just want to keep testing new or different models, or a different way, or for longer, etc. Rossi can keep this up forever, and they will never prove anything, one way or another.

DEBATT. Vetenskapsradions program om våra tester av Andrea Rossis energikatalysator i Uppsala och Bologna innehåller sakfel och ger ett oseriöst intryck. Det skriver forskare på KTH och Uppsala universitet.
DEBATE. Science Radio program on our tests of Andrea Rossi energy catalyzer in Uppsala and Bologna contains factual errors and gives a frivolous impression. This was written by researchers at KTH and Uppsala University.

[If they are going to say that factual errors are made, the least they could do is clearly state what those errors are. How can you answer otherwise? The frivolous impression, is justified because the group is acting in a frivolous manner.]

Andrea Rossi, uppfinnaren av E-Cat-reaktorn, har framställts som en bedragare i ett antal program i vetenskapsradion med titeln Den blinda tron på kall fusion. Dessutom beskylls Uppsala- och KTH-forskare för att vara medlöpare till Rossis arbeten med sin E-Cat-uppfinning, som påstås vara en ren bluff eftersom man inte har detaljkännedom om hur den är konstruerad och om den fungerar.
Andrea Rossi, the inventor of the E-Cat-reactor, has been portrayed as a fraudster in a number of programs on science radio entitled The blind faith in cold fusion. In addition, Uppsala, Sweden, and the Royal Institute of Technology-researchers are accused of being accomplices in Rossi’s work with his E-Cat-invention, which is claimed to be a pure hoax, because they do not have detailed knowledge of how it is constructed or if it works.

[Rossi is portrayed as a fraudster, because Rossi IS a fraudster. Andrea Rossi is a well-known and confirmed liar, teller of tall tales, convicted criminal, and con artist. Everything the group says about itself is true, why shouldn’t it be repeated? When the group claims Rossi has a cold fusion/LENR device without proof, and when the group claims that Rossi has a device that produces excess heat without proof, they become Rossi’s partners and associates in Rossi’s fraud and scam. And nobody in the world as far as we know has a clue what is inside Rossi’s tin can, including the group, so that is true also.]

För övrigt innehåller programmen en mängd sakfel som förstärker intrycket av en oseriös parts­inlaga rörande Rossi som person liksom ämnesområdet LENR (kall fusion). Det finns därför anledning att kommentera vilka motiv och vilken roll vi har haft i experimenten med E-Cat-reaktorn och att klargöra vad som är en korrekt beskrivning.
In addition, the programs contain a variety of errors which reinforces the impression of not submitting a serious portrayal of Rossi as a person as well as the topic LENR (cold fusion). There is therefore reason to comment on the motives and the role we have had in the experiments with the E-Cat-reactor and to give an accurate description with clarity.

[Once again if the group is going to claim errors, please name them. Why should anyone take Rossi seriously? Rossi does not even take Rossi seriously! And when most of the group leading the cold fusion/LENR movement promote the likes of people and companies like Rossi and Defkalion, who are frauds and scammers, why should they be taken seriously either? You will find as you read on that the group provides neither accuracy nor clarity.]

Redan 2011 vid ett besök i Bologna, då vi övervakade ett testexperiment med en E-Cat-reaktor, framkom indikationer på att en signifikant värmeutveckling ägde rum. Den var betydligt större än vad man kunde vänta sig av en rent kemisk förbränning.
We had already found in 2011 during a visit to Bologna, when we monitored a test experiment with an E-Cat-reactor, indications that significant heat was developed. It was much greater than what could be expected from a purely chemical combustion.

[It is really not clear what test is spoken of here. Because we have analyzed every test and demo put on by Rossi/Levi during 2011, with results available to the public, and not one of them proved excess heat, or anything close to it. This is why this group keeps wanting to test and more test, because they cannot get it right even once. If even one test by Rossi in 2011 proved excess heat, no more tests would be required.]

Detta resultat var sensationellt och det gav anledning till att följa den fortsatta utvecklingen av E-Cat-reaktorn. I synnerhet som Rossi den 28 april 2011 beviljats ett italienskt patent på sin uppfinning. Under ett par ytterligare tester i Uppsala och Bologna framkom dock inga resultat från vilka några konkreta slutsatser kunde dras. Testet i Uppsala fallerade på grund av en brusten kemisk svetsfog.
This result was sensational and it gave reason to follow the further development of the E-Cat-reactor. In particular, because Rossi on 28 April 2011 was granted an Italian patent on his invention. After a few additional tests in Uppsala, Sweden, and Bologna, no results were found, however, from which any concrete conclusions could be drawn. The test in Uppsala failed because of a broken chemical weld.

[No test of Rossi’s e-cat has been sensational, and none of them proved anything, or why do another test? Rossi’s Italian patent was issued on April 6, 2011, at least the month was right. But the Italian patent is worthless because if you follow the instructions in it you will arrive nowhere. Ask Michael McKubre, he tried for a long time to replicate Rossi’s device and failed. The group also forgets that Rossi filed his patent under the old system, where you did not have to justify your claims. And lastly the group also fails to mention that the same patent has been soundly rejected at both the USPTO and the EPO.]

Hösten 2012 gjorde professor Giuseppe Levi vid Bologna-universitetet och hans student Evelyn Foschi ett testexperiment i Ferrara med en nyutveckling av E-Cat­reaktorn. Detta experiment genomfördes oberoende av Rossi i den meningen att all mätutrustning tillhörde Levi, och han själv gjorde all analys av mätresultaten.
In autumn 2012, Professor Giuseppe Levi at Bologna University, and his student Evelyn Foschi did a test experiment in Ferrara with a new model of the E-Cat­reactor. This experiment was carried out independently of Rossi, in the sense that all measuring equipment belonged to Levi, and he himself did all analysis of the measurement results.

[Levi is a partner and associate of Rossi. Levi has faked data in reports. Levi has lost important data on every private test he has been involved in. Levi cannot be trusted. As long as Levi is involved in any test of an e-cat that test will be dirty.]

Dessa resultat uppvisade åter­igen en anomal värmeproduktion. Detta föranledde oss att tillsammans med Levi göra ett längre test under rigorösa former, vilket gjordes i mars 2013. Vår självklara utgångspunkt är att det endast är genom noggranna experimentella test som det går att avgöra om E-Cat-reaktorn fungerar eller inte.
These results again showed an anomalous heat production. This led us to work together with Levi to do a longer test under rigorous conditions, which was made in March 2013. Our self-evident starting point is that it is only through rigorous experimental test is it possible to determine whether the E-Cat-reactor is operating as claimed or not.

[We would not believe anything Levi told us, or put in writing, especially relating to Rossi and the e-cat. And after all of these “rigorous” tests, nothing has been determined about the e-cat except more tests are required. So much for “rigorous.”]

Resultatet av detta längre test visade också en tydlig indikation på anomal värmeproduktion. Experimentet och resultaten finns utförligt beskrivna i artikeln ”Indication of anomalous heat energy production in a reactor device”, arXiv:1305.3913.
The result of this longer test also showed a clear indication of anomalous origin of heat production. The experiment and the results are described in detail in the article “Indication of anomalous heat energy production in a reactor device”, arXiv:1305.3913.

[The group sure likes to use the word “indication” a lot. But it is like winning at horseshoes, close don’t count, when you need a ringer to win. It seems to us that it is clear there is an “indication” this group should pack up their marbles and go home, because they are playing in a game way out of their league. Sorry for all of the sarcasm, but by all “indications” it is justified.]

Huvudslutsatsen i denna artikel är att resultaten indikerar att en anomal värmeproduktion har skett i sådan mängd att den inte kan ha kemiskt ursprung. Där­emot görs i artikeln inga spekulationer om troliga källor till värmeproduktionen. I synnerhet görs inga kopplingar till kall fusion, vilket inte kan göras utan kännedom om reaktorbränslets isotopsammansättning före och efter förbränningen.
The main conclusion of this article is that the results indicate that an anomalous heat production has occurred in such a quantity that it cannot have a chemical origin. On the other hand, no speculation about the likely sources of heat production is made in the article. In particular, no links were made to cold fusion, which cannot be done without knowledge of reactor fuel isotopic composition before and after combustion.

[This article has no conclusion. It only has ‘indications.” Not one of the tests or demos of Rossi and Levi proved anything or established anything, not even “anomalous heat production.” See how easy it is to put meaningless words down in writing? That is all this article and everything else this group has produced consists of – meaningless dribble.

The group says that:
“On the other hand, no speculation about the likely sources of heat production is made in the article. In particular, no links were made to cold fusion.

That is a flat out lie and falsehood. You say in the report:

They speculated that a “low energy nuclear reaction” had taken place in order to explain the large amount of excess heat. The E-Cat HT – a further, high temperature development of the original apparatus which has also undergone many construction changes in the last two years – is the latest product manufactured by Leonardo Corporation: it a device allegedly capable of….”

It is clear that by putting this in the report the seed was sown. You also said:

“It should be emphasized that the measurement must be performed with high accuracy and reliability, so that any possible excess heat production can be established beyond any doubt, as no known processes exist which can explain any abundant heat production in the E-Cat reactor.

So after you plant the seed that Focardi and Rossi claim to have a LENR device, you say “no known processes exist,” clearly a reference to a cold fusion/LENR device.

And last you quote from:
“[3] S. Focardi and A. Rossi, internal report, 2010.”
Which is their paper claiming cold fusion/LENR, and you don’t even have the guts to say it is only available from Rossi’s vanity website. No one else would publish it.

Please read the articles here:
110 Quotes by Rossi about Gamma Rays and Transmutations
Andrea Rossi – E-Cat – Scammers and the Cold Fusion/LENR Matrix ]

Slutsatsen blir att nya tester måste till för att dels klargöra om en anomal värmeproduktion verkligen sker och dels undersöka om en förändring i bränslets totala isotopsammansättning äger rum.
The conclusion was that new tests must partly clarify whether an anomalous heat production actually takes place and examine whether a change in the fuel’s total isotopic composition takes place.

[It is clear that this group does not have the expertise to test a device for a fraud and a scam, please leave this type of thing to the “big boys.”]

Vi bedömde resultaten från Ferrara-experimentet vara tillräckligt intressanta för att fortsätta testexperimenten. Sådana tester har nu genomförts och resultaten kommer att redovisas i en ny vetenskaplig artikel.
We considered the results of the Ferrara experiment was interesting enough to continue the test experiments. Such tests have now been carried out and the results will be reported in a new scientific article.

[You might want to hold off on that report before you get in so deep you can’t get out.”]

Let us repeat one last time so you don’t miss it:
A brief message to the authors of any future report on any test of any e-cat by the crook Andrea Rossi:

  • If you put your name on a paper analyzing one of the e-cat tests or demos, and in the paper there are claims lacking in provability by others, i.e. (requires the reader to “trust” the authors), your paper is worthless to all but a scammer and in our opinion, you become an accomplice with Rossi and a partner in his scam.
  • If you put your name on a paper analyzing one of the e-cat tests or demos, and in the paper there are outrageous claims of free energy, and the testing procedure did not eliminate all of the possible ways the demo or test might have been falsified, your paper is worthless to all but a scammer and in our opinion, you become an accomplice with Rossi and a partner in his scam.
  • If you put your name on a paper analyzing one of the e-cat tests or demos and claim the e-cat is, or even the possibility of the e-cat being, a cold fusion/LENR device, and you do not prove in your paper that some type of cold fusion/LENR did in fact take place, your paper is worthless to all but a scammer and in our opinion, you become an accomplice with Rossi and a partner in his scam.
