IT, practical cold fusion generators could, in theory, power entire data
centers for next to no cost and provide power in locations far from the
grid. And the existing power grid would, itself, be potentially obsoleted
by fusion power generation. As for the impact on transportation ... imagine
a car that could be driven from coast to coast several times without refueling
for a few cents! That's the promise of cold fusion power. ’

Energy Catalyzer could change the way we generate power in a way some
people have not thought of. Currently most electricity is generated in
large centralized plants owned by governments and large corporations.
These plants can burn coal or gas, or run off other forms of power such
as geothermal, nuclear, wind or hydro but the principle is the same.’

fusion is the holy grail of energy generation. Achieving it would constitute
a breakthrough of epic proportions, but wishing it won’t make it
so. In light of Japan’s nuclear woes, the scientific community should
approach the Focardi-Rossi enterprise with both healthy skepticism and
a wary eye toward naysayers who would suppress rational inquiry. Let science
be science and the chips fall where they will.’ - The

Q&A With Andrea Rossi on ERV, IH and E-Cat TestHere
is an extended Q&A from the Journal of Nuclear Physics today regarding
the issues surrounding the lawsuit the Andrea Rossi/Leonardo Corp. has
filed against Industrial Heat et. al. Rossi’s responses to the
questions are below each question in bold.
8, 2016 - Rossi
Provides Explanation about 1MW Plant Customer (Updated With Info from
Mats Lewan)Andrea Rossi has
been asked on the Journal of Nuclear Physics about the customer who
has been supplied with the heat of the 1 MW plant. The name Henry Johnson,
who is a Florida Attorney and also listed on some documents as president
of Leonardo Corporation has been named in the License Agreement as president
of JM Chemical Products, Inc. the apparent customer for the 1MW E-Cat
7, 2016 - Andrea
Rossi sues Industrial Heat for $89MMats
Lewan: On Wednesday, April 6, I received a press release
from the lawyer representing Rossi’s company, Leonardo Corp.,
about a lawsuit on Rossi’s US licensee Industrial Heat (IH), its
representatives Thomas Darden and JT Vaughn, and Darden’s main
company, Cherokee Investment Partners.
6, 2016 - Leonardo
Corp. Press Release: Cold Fusion (LENR) Verified
- Inventor Sues Industrial Heat, LLC - ERV is Fabio Penon According
to the independent third party report, over the 352 day test period,
the E-Cat consistently generated energy at a rate in excess of six (6)
times the amount of energy consumed by the plant, often generating energy
exceeding fifty (50) times the amount of energy consumed during the
same period. According to Andrea Rossi, Leonardo Corporation considers
the results of the third party test to be “an overwhelming success”
and that “the world is one step closer to the realization of a
commercially available new, clean and efficient energy source.”
29, 2016 - Andrea Rossi made this announcement
on the Journal of Nuclear Physics Today:
March 29, 2016 at 1:44 PM
WE HAVE RECEIVED RIGHT NOW THE ERV’S REPORT WHICH HAS BEEN DELIVERED
TO INDUSTRIAL HEAT AND TO MYSELF.
While I cannot release the report publicaly at this time, I can state
that I am very pleased with the results.
I hope that Industrial Heat and I will be able to release the report
publicaly in the near future.
May God help us for the hard work waiting for us all.

Huw Price Article: "Is The Cold Fusion Egg About to Hatch?"Huw Price, Bertrand Russell Professor
of Philosophy and a fellow of Trinity College at the University of Cambridge
has written a new article on the Aeon.co website about LENR, and how
he thinks it could be ready to explode on the world scene.
19, 2016 - The
Different E-Cat Approaches of Leonardo and Industrial HeatWe may be getting close to some important
revelations about what cold fusion (in the form of Andrea Rossi’s
E-Cat) can do, but it’s a time of increasingly high tension as
we wait for the report of the 1MW E-Cat Plant to be delivered. Yesterday
the countdown clock I had running on the site ran out and I’m
not going to try to make another guess!
March 18, 2016 - Something
Really Bothers Me About the ApcoWorldwide/LENR Connection!We
can be sure about one thing though. Apco Worldwide beeing involved in
sending email to a few LENR enthusiasts (and Krivit) is a proof that
the establishment are keeping a close eye on the LENR development. Apco
IS the Washington establishment in a boiled down format. They are in
way bigger than the politicians and the bankers, since their job is
to shape/control the public opinion in problematic issues, like climate,
health, food, medcare, tobacco and of course defending big corporations
against the people in many other different ways.

Wants E-Cat X Installed in Customer Factory by AprilAs
we wait for the results of the 1MW plant test to be reported, Andrea
Rossi is apparently working hard on the E-Cat X, and today announced
a very ambitious and near-term goal. Here’s a Q&A from the
Journal of Nuclear Physics today
11, 2016 - Hydro
Fusion Reports $121 Million Chinese Investment into LENRThanks to AlainCo for uncovering an interesting
piece of information on the Hydro Fusion website regarding Chinese investment
in LENR/Industrial Heat. On the Hydro Fusion website in the Fourth Quarter
Deveopments of 2015 (http://hydrofusion.com/news/e-cat-fourth-quarter-developments-of-2015)
page is found this statement:
11, 2016 - Industrial
Heat Makes Statement Regarding LENR Industry DevelopmentsIndustrial Heat’s objective is
to make clean, safe and affordable energy available everywhere, and
in doing this we want to build a company that demonstrates respect for
all. LENR is a key focus of Industrial Heat and we believe multiple
technologies in this sector warrant further investigation and development.
7, 2016 - Finally:
This is possibly how the E-Cat worksAfter
five years of debate on the much discussed energy device, the E-Cat,
I have finally been shown a theoretical model that makes sense and which
seems to be consistent with both laws of physics and experimental results,
which I will present here.
24, 2016 - Rossi
Hopes for Public Presentation of E-Cat X Plant this Year Andrea
Rossi has said many times that now the 1MW plant test is over he is
now focusing all his efforts on developing the E-Cat X, and getting
it ready for mass production. It seems that he has his heart set on
getting plants on the market this year — and also doing a presentation
of the plant.
24, 2016 - BREAKING:
The E-Cat has been replicated - here's the recipe!
The ‘open science’ group, Martin Fleischmann Memorial Project,
MFMP, that I mention at the end of my book An Impossible Invention,
has announced that they have performed a true replication of the effect
in Rossi’s energy device, the E-Cat. The group has also published
a complete recipe of how to replicate the effect, adding a clear method
for detecting a successful replication.
19, 2016 - For
Rossi, It's the E-Cat X All the Way NowNow
that the 1 MW plant test is over, it seems that Andrea Ross now has
the freedom to concentrate on what he is really excited about: the E-Cat
X. This is the new version of the E-Cat that he reports runs at very
high temperatures and is able to produce electricity directly. It was
clear that while the 1 MW plant was running that Rossi was paying a
great deal of attention to the E-Cat X. However he still had to keep
the plant running, so he couldn’t devote his full attention to
the new reactors.
19, 2016 - Historic
event: One-year 1 megawatt E-Cat trial completed On
February 17, 2016, a 350-day commercial test of a one megawatt heat
plant based on Andrea Rossi’s E-Cat was completed. The event must
be considered historic since it’s the first time an industrially
useful amount of energy is produced over such a long time from this
kind of yet unexplained radiation-free nuclear reaction—LENR or
Low Energy Nuclear Reactions.
6, 2016 - No
More Demos' if Test SucceedsUpdate
39: We’re heading into the final stretch of Andrea
Rossi’s 1 MW plant test, and while Rossi has reported loss of
efficiency in the plant’s reactors, and some more leakages, the
test still continues. Today we’re at day 348, so we could be just
weeks away from the finish line and it sounds like they are nursing
the plant all the way to the end. Here’s a Q&A on the topic
February 2, 2016 - Tom
Darden Seen As World Saver (Richtopia)There’s
an article on the Richtopia website that looks at Tom Darden’s
role in championing LENR. The article, written by Mae Merriweather,
is rather dramatically titled, “How Not Knowing Tom Darden Could
Make You a Rookie in Tech” and looks at Darden’s funding
of Andrea Rossi’s E-Cat.
February 1, 2016 - UPDATE
#38 - New Test Deadline: End of MarchIt
looks like the countdown clock we have been running on this site has
been overly optimistic based on recent statements from Andrea Rossi
on when the test might conclude. So I have adjusted the clock to the
end of March, rather than February 29. Here’s a Q&A from the
Journal of Nuclear Physics today:
30, 2015 - Overview
of the Electric E-Cat XAs
expected, since announcing the generation of electricity from the E-Cat
X there have been lots of questions for Andrea Rossi on the Journal
of Nuclear Physics about it, and Rossi has provided many answers that
I will attempt to summarize here, rather than copy a list of direct
30, 2015 - New
Year's Eve Party Thread! What Will be the Big Reveal from Rossi at Midnight
(US Eastern Time)?Andrea
Rossi wrote this intriguing comment on the Journal of Nuclear Physics
today: ...at midnight tomorrow, when the New Year will be born, which
means at 00.00 a.m. of Jan 1st 2016, I will be in the plant and I will
uncork the bottle of the Korbel ( a very good US champenois) to celebrate:
I will be alone inside the plant in that moment, with the security guards
only; immediately after that I will write here what is the E-Cat X and
what I want to do of it.
21, 2015 - Cambridge
University Professor Huw Price on the 'Reputation Trap' of Cold Fusion
Huw Price: If
Rossi, Godes, Lundin, Lidgren and others do turn out to have something
useful – something that can make some useful contribution to meeting
our desperate need for clean, cheap energy – we will have wasted
a generation of progress. What we should have done instead is to have
engineered the exact opposite of a reputation trap – perhaps an
X Prize-like reward for the first reliable replication of the Fleischmann
and Pons results, above some commercial bar.
6, 2015 - Self-Interest
and LENR (Edmund Storms)Thanks
to Georgehants for pointing out this comment from Edmund Storms on Peter
Gluck’s Ego Out site regarding the initial reception of LENR/Cold
Fusion when Dr. Storms was working at the Los Alamos National Laboratory
in New Mexico, USA.
1, 2015 - Rossi
on the E-Cat's Modular Future: E-Cat X Units Can Combine to Make Power
Plants of Any SizeI think
we have learned from Andrea Rossi about the future of the E-Cat —
and it is modular. Some comments on the Journal of Nuclear Physics point
to a new concept which has been brought about by apparent success of
the E-Cat X. While we still don’t know exactly what it is, but
it seems from what Rossi has been saying that it is an E-Cat that can
be made in quite small modules which can then be assembled together
to make whatever size power plant you might need.
28, 2015 - I'm
honoured...that the Irish
news outlet Siliconrepublic.com chose my book ‘An Impossible Invention’
as one of ‘the seven best books and fascinating reads for the
STEM enthusiast in your life.‘
25, 2015 - Rossi's
engineer: 'I have seen things you people wouldn't believe' Mats
Lewan: A few days ago I had a conversation with Rossi’s
closest technician and engineer since 2012, Fulvio Fabiani, which I
will report on here. Let me first make clear that the quite lengthy
report has absolutely no value if you’re convinced that the E-Cat
technology doesn’t work. At the most it will be anecdotic. People
considering the E-Cat technology to be valid will, on the other hand,
find some of Fabiani’s statements to be interesting.

Rossi and his team. Rossi
commented on the JONP: “Look well these artistic representations:
you see the 4 “Tigers” one upon the other. It is the actual
configuration of the 1 MW plant.”

Ukrainian government to fund an LENR research program as a means of
securing the country’s energy future. The article is written by
Dr. Vladimir Vysotsky, professor of Physical and Mathematical Sciences
at Kiev National University Shevchenko.
29, 2015 - E-Cat
X: Go, Go, GO !!!Yesterday
I asked Andrea Rossi for an update on the current testing going on in
his shipping container, and got the following response:
18, 2015 - Rossi:
'Consolidated' 1 MW E-Cat Plant to Have Volume of 4 Cubic MetersIt seems quite likely that future owners
of an industrial E-Cat plant may not need to have a shipping container
installed at their site. Andrea Rossi has responded to a question on
the Journal of Nuclear Physics about the possibility of increasing the
power density of the 1 MW plant in the future, and in response has provided
information about how he sees the volume of future plants:
the H2 + Ni58 reactor gives a higher performance. In fact, by combining
wave input at frequencies closer to resonance with decreasing external
power, (low-power mode) a new equilibrium may theoretically establish
where the gain/COP may exceed 1000” (p. 8).
15, 2015 -Swedish
scientists claim LENR explanation break-through
Essentially no new physics but a little-known
physical effect describing matter’s interaction with electromagnetic
fields — ponderomotive Miller forces — would explain energy
release and isotopic changes in LENR. This is what Rickard Lundin and
Hans Lidgren, two top level Swedish scientists, claim, describing their
theory in a paper called Nuclear Spallation and Neutron Capture Induced
by Ponderomotive Wave Forcing that will be presented on Friday, October
16, at the 11th International Workshop on Anomalies in ?Hydrogen Loaded
Metals, hosted by Airbus in Toulouse, France.

Interviewed by Bailey and Borwein (Now on Huffington Post)Thanks to Veblin for sharing a link to
an interview by David H. Bailey of the Lawrence Berkeley National Lab
(retired) and University of California, and Jonathan M. Borwein, Laureate
Professor of Mathematics, University of Newcastle, Australia on the
Math Drudge website.
22, 2015 - Rossi:
If Test Successful, E-Cat Commercialization to Start March 2016Until now I don’t believe that
Andrea Rossi has mentioned a specific starting date for when commercialization
of E-Cat technology will begin, except to say that they will not be
losing time to get started if the current test of the 1 MW plant is
successful. Today, in response to a question from a reader on the Journal
of Nuclear Physics about when plants might be available for order, Rossi
17, 2015 - E-Cat
Commercial Rollout: Leonardo in Europe, Industrial Heat in the USA?We don’t have much detail about
the commercial rollout of E-Cat technology, but it appears that plans
are well underway for getting the technology into the marketplace, providing,
of course, that the year-long test run of the 1 MW plant goes well.
Andrea Rossi was asked if there might be a small Italian flag in the
container where he was now working. Rossi responded:
3, 2015 -European
Patent Office Approves Patent for Piantelli's LENR Method
Thanks to Alainco on the LENR-Forum for this interesting
news: The European Patent Office has granted a patent on Francesco Piantelli’s
“Method and Apparatus for Generating Energy by Nuclear Reactions
of Hydrogen Adsobred by Orbital Capture on a Nanocrystalline Structure
of a Metal”.
28, 2015 - Cold
Fusion Heats Up: Fusion Energy and LENR UpdateAccording
to Rossi and a handful of others who have observed the system in operation,
it is producing 1 MWatt continuous net output power, in the form of
heat, from a few grams of "fuel" in each of a set of modest-sized
reactors in a network. The system has now been operating for approximately
six months, as part of a one-year acceptance test. Rossi and IH LLC
are in talks with Chinese firms for large-scale commercial manufacture.

Patent Granted by USPTOAndrea
Rossi and Leonardo Corporation receive its first ECAT patent in the
United States from the US Patent and Trademark Office, USPTO. Q&A with the Inventor Andrea Rossi
of Leonardo Corporation:
23, 2015 - Rossi:
Relationship Between Leonardo Corp and Industrial Heat "as Perfect
as Ever" Andrea Rossi
has responded to a question on the Journal of Nuclear Physics which
asked directly about the relationship between him and Industrial Heat.
There has been some speculation recently that there might have been
some change in the relationship, as Rossi has written numerous about
Leonardo Corporation’s position as the owner of the E-Cat’s
9, 2015 - Rossi:
New Hot Cat 'A Real Revolution . . . Very, Very, Very Good' (Updated)Early Sunday Morning, Andrea Rossi reports
that he restarted a rebuilt Hot Cat (high temperature E-Cat reactor)
that he is calling “M.me Curie”. The first iteration of
this new design was started last week, and apparently performed quite
well, but broke after 10 hours of operation. Ross seems quite excited
about the new version of this design. This is what he writes today:
4, 2015 - Rossi:
"Practically Impossible" to Retrofit Coal Power Plants with
E-Cats Due to Authorization IssuesOn
many occasions people have suggested that one easy way to incorporate
E-Cat technology into the existing energy infrastructure is to simply
take out the current heating systems from power plants (coal, gas, nuclear)
and put in E-Cat heaters. All you need to generate electricity is steam
at sufficient temperature and pressure to drive the turbines, and if
you can match the heat from burning coal with heat from E-Cats, it would
not seem to be major problem. You could keep the turbines and other
necessary elements for steam production in place, and the electricity
transmission systems would not need to be altered.
26, 2015 - Rossi's
Hot Cat Hopes Update Next Version A Completely New ThingIt seems that while Andrea Rossi is monitoring the performance
of the 1MW plant (all recent reports from him about the plant are quite
positive), he is also busy with the development of the Hot Cat (high
temperature E-Cat), a test reactor which is also being subject to a
year-long test in the shipping container where he is working.
11, 2015 -E-Cat
Customer Happy With Energy Bills: Rossi According
to Andrea Rossi, the E-Cat plant that is being tested at the site of
Industrial Heat’s secret customer has been running for over four
months now, providing heat for an industrial process. If this is the
case, the customer should be getting an idea of how effective the plant
is in cutting the cost of energy at the factory. Rossi today commented
on the Journal of Nuclear Physics that “What really interests
our Customer is that the E-Cat increases his profit.” I followed
up with a couple of questions, and Rossi has replied.
10, 2015 -Norwegian
Think Tank Assesses LENR — “Success Cannot be Excluded”
The report looks at the history of cold fusion,
current activity in the LENR field, and at some of the companies involved
in R&D. It also tries to project the possible future impact based
on research that has been done in other fields, such as the impact of
the cost of oil on the world economy. The report does not come to any
firm conclusion, but does pose some possible scenarios that could result
from commercially available LENR. And it does recommend that the topic
be monitored at high levels in government.
5, 2015 -1MW
Plant and Hot Cat Continue Stable and Self-Sustaining: Rossi
A pattern of questioning has emerged on the Journal of Nuclear Physics
which is perhaps the most accurate way for us to presently gauge how
work is going on the ongoing E-Cat tests taking place in the shipping
containers where Andrea Rossi is currently working. A reader will typically
ask what is the status of the E-Cat test at the very moment the question
is asked — and Andrea Rossi does not seem to mind giving the latest
16, 2015 -1
MW Hot Cat Plant to follow Current 1 MW Plant If
you are wondering what Andrea Rossi might be doing after the current
test of the 1 MW plant is over, he has just revealed at least one new
thing we can expect — a Hot Cat Plant.
21, 2015 -Rossi
Expects New Successful Replication Reports to be Published
There’s an interesting response by Andrea Rossi on the Journal
of Nuclear Physics in response to a comment by Hank Mills today. Hank
Mills makes the observation that no one in the open replication community
is able to achieve the same kind of success as Alexander Parkhomov,
and he thinks it is because no one is putting in enough time to work
at getting the results, and there has been a wide variety of materials
and setups used.
10, 2015 -Rossi:
Hot Cats to be Used for Domestic Unit - 'Very Long' Self-Sustain Periods
in Single Units There has been some interesting
information from Andrea Rossi revealed by Andrea Rossi recently regarding
plans for the Hot Cat (the high temperature E-Cat reactor), which he
now says will be used as the basis for domestic E-Cat units, which apparently
are being prepared for in ongoing R&D activity. Here are some recent
questions and comments from Rossi via the Journal of Nuclear Physics.

Cold Fusion Reactor Shames Thousand Ton ITER Electromagnet (Hank Mills)San Diego’s General Atomic’s is providing
the ITER reactor a critical component: a seven story, one thousand ton
electromagnet (see story here: http://m.utsandiego.com/news/2015/apr/11/fusion-reactor-atomics).
This enormous piece of equipment will help contain the superheated plasma
which is needed to allow deuterium and tritium – two isotopes
of hydrogen – to under go “hot” nuclear fusion. If
all goes well, this component along with several others will be put
together by 2019 or 2020 to complete the reactor that’s expected
to have a total cost of at least sixteen billion dollars. The bad news
for taxpayers across the world is that they should not expect to reap
any real world benefits from the reactor until at least 2027 –
this is when the first attempts to produce fusion reactions may take
13, 2015 - Transcript
of Tom Darden's Speech on LENR at ICCF19: "We've Reached a Tipping
point"This is the first time that we
have seen and heard the founder of Industrial Heat, who acquired rights
to Andrea Rossi’s E-Cat technology. In this talk he spoke about
his motivation, history and his hopes and goals for LENR technology
in general. I have done a quick transcription of the videos and decided
to put the transcript in a separate post here. The room he was speaking
in had a lot of echo, so some things were somewhat indistinct, but I
think I got most of what he said.
11, 2015 - Tom
Darden of Industrial Heat to Speak at ICCF19Many
thanks to We Want Fusione Fredda for pointing out some new speakers
on the ICCF19 program for Monday Morning. Here’s the speaker’s
roster for the program on Monday Morning:
7, 2015 - E-Cat
Theory Paper Published by Andrea Rossi and Norman CookA
paper by Norman Cook of Kansai University, Osaka and Andrea Rossi titled
‘On the Nuclear Mechanisms Underlying the Heat Production by the
“E-Cat”’ has been published on Arxiv.org, a repository
of pre-print science papers hosted at Cornell University.
4, 2015 - Reflections
on ReplicationsThere have been hundreds
of posts on the MFMP live experiment thread now, and I thought I would
start a new one for the purposes of reflection on the topic of replication
in general. The
Rossi Effect seems to have generated in some an almost insatiable curiosity
and drive to discover the secrets of LENR. The Lugano report has been
a catalyst to encourage replicators, and Alexander Parkhomov’s
work has been a further catalyst. The motivation to replicate is not
hard to understand since we are dealing with what could turn out to
be one of the most important discoveries in the history of science.
27, 2015 - Parkhomov
Again Replicates Rossi Effect - The Challenge is Before the Scientific
CommunityIn the years we have been covering
topics connected with the E-Cat here, there have been numerous tests
and demonstrations that have validated the underlying claim of Andrea
Rossi and others: that it is possible to create a nickel-hydrogen reaction
that produces more energy than is input into a reactor in significant
quantities — enough to provide useful energy.
Professor Alexander Parkhomov
26, 2015 - Parkhomov's
Catnip: The Incredible Fuel of the E-Cat (Hank Mills)Over
the last twenty years, since 1989 when Pons and Fleischman introduced
the technology to the world, researchers have dreamed of developing
a robust and economically viable version of the technology. This dream
has been realized with the Rossi Effect, and the experiments of Alexander
Parkhomov seem to demonstrate these aspects of the technology in a simple
manner. If his results can be successfully replicated, a black swan
event may be the result.
23, 2015 - Airbus
Files Patent for LENR 'Power-Generating Device'Thanks
to AlainCo for posting about a recently published patent application
submitted by European Aerospace giant Airbus for an ‘apparatus
and method for power generation’. It appears that patent was first
submitted on September 17, 2013, and was made public on March 19th,
22, 2015 - Heater
Coil Burned Out, When Replaced Reactor Restarts From Cool Operation
of the reactor was interrupted due to a heater burn-out at 10:50 on
March 20 (Moscow time). Fortunately though, the tube with fuel wasn't
a replacement heater was used, the reactor RESTARTED!! at 11:10 on March
21 and works still.
11, 2015 - Interest
in LENR grows among some scientists In the
last 12-18 months there have been many tangible signs of a growing interest
in LENR among different “types” of scientists, especially
physicists. I would like to focus my attention on some of them, just
to give an idea of the ongoing trend to the reader.
5, 2015 - Lugano
Testers Continue Work: Mats LewanMany people
have been wondering when we might be getting an update from the team
that tested the E-Cat in the Lugano report. Andrea Rossi has mentioned
that we could expect revisions and updates to the original document,
but no significant changes have been made since the report was published
since last October.
3, 2015 - Hot-Cat
2.0: How last generation E-Cats are madeThe first technical book on the E-Cat technology has just been
published! The title is “HOT-CAT 2.0: How last generation E-Cats
are made” and it is a valuable introduction to the more advanced
reactor devices developed by Andrea Rossi and Industrial Heat.
24, 2015 - Current
Science Journal Publishes Special Issue on LENRCurrent
Science: a Fortnightly Journal of Research, is a peer-reviewed interdisciplinary
science journal published twice monthly by the Current Science Association,
in collaboration with the Indian Academy of Sciences.
21, 2015 - Will
LENR Reach Mass Adoption Faster than any Technology? (Mats Lewan)You often hear that new technologies spread to reach
global mass adoption at an ever increasing speed — from electricity,
telephones, radio and television to PCs, mobile phones and the web.
The hypothesis seems accurate and also reasonable, given that the world
is getting increasingly connected in several ways, both with regard
to communications, transportation and commerce, but it’s actually
19, 2015 - Growing
Track Record Indicates Andrea Rossi and the E-Cat Should be Taken SeriouslyI’ve been following the story of the E-Cat since
early 2011, and paid close attention to most of what Andrea Rossi has
written and spoken over the years — and he has written and said
a lot. He has always expressed confidence in the reality and validity
of his technology, and has made many statements about what he has hoped
and expected with the E-Cat.
18, 2015 - Andrea
Rossi Releases Photos of 1MW LENR / Cold Fusion E-Cat Plant Thanks
to David Nygren of the LENR Forum for posting here today about a new
website: http://andrea-rossi.com which has seemingly just appeared.
It bills itself as the ‘Official Website’, of Andrea Rossi,
although it’s not quite clear who is the publisher.
11, 2015 - "We're
at the Tipping Point" (Brian Westenhaus) Brian
Westenhaus has written an article providing his assessment of the current
situation with LENR/E-Cat technology which is published both at New
Energy and Fuel and Oilprice.His
overall stance is very bullish, especially given the replication efforts
of Alexander Parkhomov, MFMP and others. Westenhaus says that positive
results from Parkhomov, coupled with the Lugano report of E-Cat testing
bode well for the claims of Rossi, and shed much doubt on what the critics
have been saying over the years about the E-Cat being a scam.
11, 2015 - BlackRock,
Inc - World's Largest Asset Management Company - Closely Following LENR Thanks
to an E-Cat World reader for finding the following and sharing it. BlackRock
Inc. is the world’s largest asset management company, managing
over $4 trillion in assets for pension funds, corporate accounts, and
individual investors. The BlackRock Investment Institute is a research
and analysis arm of BlackRock which looks at the global investment picture
and tries to anticipate trends and opportunities for its clients.
6, 2015 - "Cold
Fusion - If This is True the Oil Becomes Worthless" (Norwegian
TU Magazine)Thanks to those who have shared about
an article which was published by the Norwegian magazine TU (Teknisk
Ukeblad) titled “Cold Fusion – If this is true, the oil
becomes worthless”. The author, Odd Richard Valmot, looks at the
implications of the possibility of commercially available LENR energy,

2, 2015 - It
seems big banks know about cold fusion The
oil price keeps falling. And most analysts seem convinced that they
know the reason — it’s about supply, or demand, or Putin,
or Saudi Arabia, or Syria or… But what if it were
something completely different, known only by top people at the world’s
biggest banks. And you. That a new, clean and basically infinite energy
source might replace oil (and gas, coal and nuclear).

UK Covers Latest LENR DevelopmentsDavid
Hambling, who writes for WIRED UK, is one of the few journalists who
has given good attention to LENR developments over the years. He has
just continued his coverage with a new article titled “The Cold
Fusion Race Just Heated Up” in which he covers the Lugano report
and the latest experimental report by Alexander Parkhomov.
29, 2015 - Rossi:
Parkhomov's Replication 'a Good Thing for All'I
sent a comment to Andrea Rossi on the Journal of Nuclear Physics providing
links to the recent data published by Alexander Parkhomov, and the video
of his experiment, and asked him what his thoughts were regarding. Parkhomov’s
apparent success in replicating the Rossi effect.
23, 2015 - Could
Bill Gates be Hinting about LENR in Annual Letter?Bill
Gates has written an annual letter about what he hopes to accomplish
with his work with the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation. He talks about
a ‘big bet’ that he is making, that the lives of the poorest
people on earth will improve dramatically over the next fifteen years
because of advances in technology...
15, 2015 - Michael
McKubre Reviews the Parkhomov ExperimentMichael
McKubre, Director of the Energy Research Center of the Materials Research
Laboratory at SRI International in Palo Alto, Calfornia, is a well known
and long-time researcher in the LENR field, and has published an article
in Infinite Energy magazine reviewing the recently published Alexander
Parkhomov experiment using a Hot Cat-like device.
9, 2015 - Alexander
Parkhomov Invites MFMP to MoscowI think
this is some good news for those of us who have been following the work
of Dr. Alexander Parkhomov, and also the Martin Fleischmann Memorial
Project. Both have been working in their own way to find a way to at
least approximate the results of the Lugano E-Cat test — Dr. Parkhomov
seeming to have the most success so far, reporting excess heat of up
to 258 per cent with his reactor.
4, 2015 - The
truth about Fleischmann-Pons experimentI
decided to translate into English the story of Fleischmann and Pons
experiment as told by the Italian theoretical physicist Emilio Del Giudice
in his popular conferences, not only because I have had the pleasure
to appreciate him in one of them, held in Florence a few years ago,
but also because the topic is treated in an enlightening way for a general
exclusive interview with Andrea Rossi!In
these days I did a long interview with Andrea Rossi. I would like to
dedicate it as a special New Year gift to all those who bought, or will
buy, my book “E-Cat – The New Fire”.
Significance of the Parkhomov LENR ReportAlexander
Parkhomov has taken the bull by the horns and just gone ahead with a
replication effort — and what I find most encouraging about his
report is that he seems to have achieved positive results on the first
attempt! Of course he has not achieved the COP levels that the Lugano
team reached with Rossi’s reactor, but I don’t think that’s
an issue here. The most important thing is that someone has stepped
up and shown that it is possible to get interesting results, and I think
the consequences of this could be profound.
on the Duration of E-Cat's Fuel ChargeOne
of the most important aspects of the E-Cat is that it requires such
a small amount of ‘fuel’ to operate. The report of the Lugano
test stated that only one gram of fuel (the weight of a small paper
clip) was required for a run period of 32 days, and this fuel allowed
the reactor to consistently produce more than 3 times as much energy
as was input. The Lugano testers also reported that there was no reduction
in the potency of the charge during the 32-day run.
engineer interviews Rossi on an Italian web TVThe
electrical engineer and freelance reporter Salvo Mandarà has
just published, on his web TV channel Salvo5puntozero.tv, a 52-minutes
long interview in Italian with Andrea Rossi, connected via Skype from
Miami, USA. I’ve translated it for you.
Magazine on the 'Miraculous Machine' (The E-Cat)Dome
Magazine is a publication that covers topics connected with public policy
and politics in the state of Michigan, and today has published an article
by retired circuit court judge and former governor’s legal advisor
Lawrence M. Glazer titled “The Miraculous Machine” which
provides a fairly detailed overview of the history of cold fusion and
recent development with the E-Cat.
popular are the E-Cat and LENR in the world?I
tried to check the popularity of the E-Cat and of LENR objectively with
the help of Google Trends, a powerful analysis tool launched by Google
in 2006. Google Trends allows to see how often specific search terms
are being entered into Google search engine over time.
Post Science Blog Calls for More LENR ResearchOn
the Huffington Post Science Blog today, David H. Bailey of the Lawrence
Berkeley National Lab (retired) and University of California, and Jonathan
M. Borwein, Laureate Professor of Mathematics, University of Newcastle,
Australia have written an article titled “Low Energy Nuclear Reactions:
Papers and Patents” in which they take a serious, but very cautious
look at some of the recent developments in the LENR field.
McKubre, Hanno Essén and Others Participate in Norway Seminar to Discuss
Possible LENR Alternative to OilThere’s
a very interesting article posted in Infinite Energy magazine written

on Manufacturing Reactors, FuelToday
I put some questions to Andrea Rossi on the Journal of Nuclear Physics
regarding the making of the reactor and preparation of the powder used
in the Lugano test:
New Patent Application Published for Andrea Rossi's E-CatA
new patent application has been published by the US Patent and Trademark
office for “DEVICES AND METHODS FOR HEAT GENERATION” with
Andrea Rossi listed as the inventor and Industrial Heat LLC listed as
the applicant. The assignee is Leonardo Corporation.
Angry that 'Every Stupidity Gets Attention' Andrea
Rossi seems to be getting upset by some of the criticisms he is hearing
about in response to the Lugano report. Earlier today he responded to
an open letter to Stephan Pomp; he has now written in response to another
criticism which comes from someone who goes by the name of ‘Raman’
who has claimed that there are fundamental errors in the report, such
as some electrical measurements.
Rossi Comments on Open Letter to Stefan Pomp (Then Deletes)Patrik
Wiksten has posted an open letter to Uppsala University (Sweden) professor
Stefan Pomp who has been critical of the work of the authors of the
Lugano E-Cat report (and the previous one published last year), and
has suggested that the whole E-Cat affair is a fraud.
Responds to Swedish Professors Critical of E-Cat ReportIn
the Swedish science and technology magazine Ny Teknik, four Swedish
professors from the Universites of Uppsala and Lund (Sweden) authored
an article titled “”Surprising that Elforsk is so uncritical”
in which they expressed their surprise that the authors of the third
party test could be so credulous about the things that they reported
in their paper.Below
is a translated version of the Uppsala paper (original was in Swedish)
that was posted on the Journal of Nuclear Physics, interspersed with
Andrea Rossi’s comments in response to their points.
CEO: Swedish Energy Institute to Build LENR Research InitiativeElforsk
is a cooperative research and development institute that is made up
of utilities and other energy companies in operating in Sweden. Today
on Elforsk’s web site and in the Swedish science and technology
magazine Nyteknik, Elforsk’s CEO Magnus Oloffsson has written
an article responding to the E-Cat testing report published yesterday
by the independent European research team.
scientific report on the E-Cat shows excess heat and nuclear process
new scientific report on the E-Cat has been released, providing two
important findings from a 32-day testrun of the reactor — together
leading to the clear conclusion that the E-Cat is an energy source based
on some kind of nuclear reaction, without radiation outside the reactor.
Report Released: Not a Conventional Source of Energy (Cold Fusion/LENR
findings: COP of 3.2-3.6 over a 32 day period and isotopic change in
nickel and lithium was found to have changed substantially after run.
The authors conclude, “Once again, even in the most
conservative scenarios, we have values that allow us to conclude that
the reactor studied here may not be considered a conventional source
E-Cat Could Take us to the Stars (Guest Post)Only
a few times in history are we given the privilege of witnessing true
greatness. Inventors, Scientist, and Engineers toil away developing
and expounding on the technologies that improve the quality of our lives.
These few but exceptional individuals are the engine that drives the
foundation of our modern world.
Rumor from a Possible Insider (COP High Enough for 'Energy Revolution')There
has been some interesting discussion here on E-Cat World today involving
an ECW reader who goes by the name of Paul. I thought I would put the
conversation in a separate thread as the current report thread is getting
quite crowded. It should be understood that the identity of Paul is
unknown, and naturally caution should be taken when dealing with anonymous
posts. Paul here states that he and I have interacted, but I do not
know his identity.
Confirms Bill McDonough as E-Cat InsiderWe
have discussed lately comments that American designer William McDonough
has made about LENR, and today on the Journal of Nuclear Physics Andrea
Rossi was asked by Thomas Florek about whether he was familiar with
McDonough’s work and “Cradle to Cradle” philosophy.
Owner's Connections to GE/North Carolina Company Revealed The
North Carolina company that purchased Andrea Rossi’s e-cat Low
Energy Nuclear Reaction (LENR) technology Industrial Heat LLC could
have some connections to General Electric (GE) and a North Carolina
company called Power Generation Services, Inc. or PoGens.
Confirms IH/Chinese R&D OperationEarlier
this year we reported about Tom Darden’s involvement in the opening
of a Nickel-Hydrogen Research Center in the Tianjin Huayuan Industrial
Park in Tianjin, China on April 16. We haven’t heard anything
about this center since that time, but today Andrea Rossi made a statement
which probably refers to this on the Journal of Nuclear Physics saying:
For many months you have had
unlimited access to three E-Cat reactors. From Andrea Rossi’s
comments, I have been led to believe that you have full permission to
do whatever you want with these devices: test them in any manner you
choose, observe the reactions in any way you choose, and study the powder
or fuel with any equipment you choose. It seems you have an opportunity
to study the Energy Catalyzer in amazing detail.
Let's Switch from LENR to QUARWe’ve
been discussing the appropriate name for ‘the reaction’
for some time now, and a recent thread here suggested the need for taking
the world ‘Nuclear’ out of any label that is used as it
could have negative connotations to many people who are wary about nuclear
energy mainly because safety reasons. If this technology starts to make
news, there could be some headwinds to fight from nuclear energy opponents
who could raise concerns about the safety of ‘new nuclear’
MW Plant will Close the Experimentalism Era and Open the Commercial
Era It seems that a great deal is resting on the
performance of the 1 MW plant. In the post below from the Journal of
Nuclear Physics, Andrea Rossi emphasizes how important this plant will
be to the future commercialization of Industrial Heat’s technology
now and into the future. Today he wrote:
People of the E-CatI
though this was an interesting exchange and comment from Andrea Rossi

Thursday July 24th, and we are working: we, the Team. Italo R: “…
we, the Team….” and that reminds me “We, The People
on 1MW E-Cat Plant: 'We are Making a Masterpiece'Andrea
Rossi is effulgent with praise these days when talking about the work
he is doing in getting a 1 MW E-Cat plant to be put to work at a customer’s
industrial site. A big part of his enthusiasm for this plant seems to
stem from the fact that he seems to be delighted with the team he is
working with. A few comments recently show the esteem in which he holds
MW E-Cat Plant Installation Underway 'Matter of Money, Not of Science'
many people are focusing on the outcome of the long-term e-cat testing,
it seems that Andrea Rossi has got plenty on his plate to keep him occupied.
Today in a post on the Journal of Nuclear Physics Ross has made his
most detailed explanation to date what he is involved with now in the
preparation of a 1 MW plant for commercial activity:
Prepares for 1MW Plant VisitsWhile
we wait for the all-important 3rd party report to be published, there’s
apparently a parallel track taking place which should help provide important
information about the E-Cat to the world. I’m referring to the
preparation by Andrea Rossi and Industrial heat for making a 1 MW plant
available for observation and inspection by ‘allowed persons’.
There has been a bit of discussion about this on the Journal of Nuclear
Physics recently and Rossi has provided a little information about what
E-Cat Testers Issue Statement Defending their Work, RossiThe
following is a statement just released by five of the professors (all
Swedish) who were involved in the 2012-2013 testing of the E-Cat, and
who were listed as authors on the May 2013 report. This is an edited
Google translation from the original Swedish which was published in
Ny Teknik magazine today.
a Bulletproof E-Cat Report Possible?Today
on the Journal of Nuclear Physics a reader told Andrea Rossi that in
some ways he was his own worst enemy because he has left open the door
where his harshest critics can criticize him. He mentioned specifically
that the Levi et. al report left open a question about a hidden source
of DC power because of the lack of control over input power. Rossi responded
by explaining how the current testers have made modifications based
on criticisms of the last report:
an interesting interview conducted by John Maquire with Mats Lewan,
Swedish technology journalist and author of An
the recently published book about Andrea Rossi and the E-Cat. It’s
41 minutes long, and well worth a listen.
Darden Involved in Opening of Nickel-Hydrogen Energy Research Center
in Tianjin China
Thanks to Julian Becker for finding this important news report from
the Chinese Icebank web site about the establishment of a Nickel-Hydrogen
Research Center in the Tianjin Huayuan Industrial Park in Tianjin, China.
Tom Darden, CEO of Cherokee Investment Partners and Chairman of Industrial
Heat, LLC was present at the opening ceremony held on April 16, 2014.
to Abandon R&D into Carbon Capture and StorageHere’s
an interesting announcement from Swedish energy giant Vatenfall via
phys.org Vatenfall has announced that they are ending research and development
into carbon capture and storage (CCS) in connection with coal-powered
electricity generation. Apparently they had a coal power plant slated
to go online in 2016 which would have a CCS facility — but this
will no longer happen.
on Extent of Testing and Review The report will
be written by 7 Professors and Physicists of three European Universities,
who obviously review each other, and it will be further reviewed by
other 7 Professors and Physicists of 7 Universities and Nuclear Physics
Institutes of Europe, Asia, America before being proposed for publication.
The report will be based upon millions of data collected by the measurement
and registration instruments of the Professors and of their Institutes.
The whole funded by an European scientific Institute.
E-Cat Testing not yet completeAs
we approach the end of March there is inevitably a growing interest
in the status of the 3rd party long-term test on the E-Cat that Andrea
Rossi has said in the past could be concluded this month. Rossi has
just made a statement in response to a question on the Journal of Nuclear
Physics saying that as of right now (March 17, 2014), the testing has
Information found for E-Cat PlantHere’s
something I never expected could be found: a poster going by the name
of Nevanlinna on the Italian cobraf.com forum has done some amazing
detective work, and somehow uncovered shipping data which confirms the
shipping of the 1 MW E-Cat plant from Rossi’s Italian headquarters
in Ferrara, Italy, to the United States.
Government Regulations Speed Up E-Cat Adoption?Steven
Karels: In my opinion, the conversion to eCat technology
for coal-fired electricity production plants will be more driven by
the need to upgrade the plants to meet carbon emission reduction requirements.
These modifications are estimated to increase electricity costs by between
60% and 80% of current price.
Hopes to Retrofit Coal Power Plants With E-CatsAndrea
Rossi gave an interesting short comment on the Journal of Nuclear Physics
when asked by Bernie Koppenhofer whether he agreed that with anticipated
efficiencies, the hot cat would be suitable for retrofitting existing
inefficient power plants.
Media Focuses on Hot Fusion AchievementThe
news coming out of the National Ignition Facility at the Livermore National
Laboratory regarding the achievement of fusion from almost 200 lasers
blasting a hydrogen/deuterium pellet has really caught the attention
of the national and international media.
and Organizations Involved in LENR Research Christopher
Calder sent me the following list of companies and organizations currently
showing positive interest in the field of LENR. He has suggested, and
I have agreed, that we keep a master list of LENR companies here on
E-Cat World as a reference for readers. Below is the current list —
if you know of others, please let me know and I will add it to the list.
This list is not an endorsement of any or the claims that the various
companies are making, but it does indicate that there is wide and growing
interest in the field. Christopher notes that ‘the statistical
odds of them all being wrong or lying has to be over a billion to one
Physicist Sven Kullander Dies at 78Jed
Rothwell has reported on Vortex-l (citing Wikipedia) that Sven Kullander,
professor emeritus of High Energy Physics at Uppsala University, has
died at age 78. Dr. Kullander is known in the LENR community as one
of the early observers of Andrea Rossi’s E-Cats. He, along with
Swedish physicist Hanno Essen, was one of the first academics to publicly
state that he considered that the E-Cat was producing energy based on
Denial of E-Cat Reality (Guest Post)In
a Popular Science article published yesterday titled “Dubious
Cold Fusion Machine Acquired By North Carolina Company” it is
mentioned that not all of the chemicals used in the device have been
revealed. However, that is irrelevant. The amount of output produced
by E-Cat devices have exceeded any known source of chemical energy.
The reason that the catalysts have not been revealed is to protect intellectual
property. It seems like certain detractors want Rossi to give away the
secrets of his technology free to the world, but in reality, no one
in his position is going to do that.
Heat's Acquisition of E-Cat is Major Endorsement of Rossi, Boost for
announcement by Industrial Heat, LLC of its acquisition of the rights
to Andrea Rossi’s E-Cat technology is one of the most important
milestones in the whole LENR story to date, in my opinion. We now have
a company founded by serious and experienced professionals (JT Vaughn
and Tom Darden, both of Cherokee Ivestment Partners) who have put serious
money behind Andrea Rossi’s invention, and who have come out publicly
in favor of it.
RELEASE: Industrial Heat Has Acquired Andrea Rossis E-Cat Technology
Industrial Heat Has Acquired Andrea Rossi’s
E-Cat Technology. RESEARCH TRIANGLE, N.C., Jan. 24, 2014 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/
— Industrial Heat, LLC announced today that it has acquired the
rights to Andrea Rossi’s Italian low energy nuclear reaction (LENR)
technology, the Energy Catalyzer (E-Cat). A primary goal of the company
is to make the technology widely available, because of its potential
impact on air pollution and carbon dioxide emissions from burning fossil
fuels and biomass.
Pollution Masks for Everyone in Shanghai Recommended - Can E-Cat Help
the severity of China’s current problems, Mr. Zhu Junbo, a Shanghai
representative to China’s top advisory body, the Chinese People’s
Political Consultative Conference has recommended the government issuing
protective face masks to residents of Shanghai, a city of over 23 million.
The Daily Telegraph reports that air quality in Shanghai has deteriorated
since 2012, and there are days when when cars are restricted from driving
and schools are closed if smog levels are excessive.
Hagelstein on Problems Surrounding Cold Fusion (Video)An
interesting video has been posted recently on the Serious Science website
which features Dr. Peter Hagelstein, Associate Professor of Electrical
Engineering at MIT talking about cold fusion, and why it is such a problem
within the scientific community. Dr. Hagelstein is in a very small minority
among American academics — he has long been a researcher and teacher
about cold fusion, and takes it very seriously.
on Upcoming Report (Academics from 3 Continents)There’s
not too much new in this comment from Andrea Rossi regarding the much
anticipated report of the long-term E-Cat testing, but he does give
a few more hints about when we might expect it to appear, and the makeup
of the team of testers. Rossi responded to a question about the timetable
for the report as follows:
- The Company that Owns the E-Cat (Guest Post) By
putting together several pieces of information that were publicly available
on the internet, the identity of the company that owns the E-Cat has
been determined: Cherokee Investment Partners LLC. This company created
Industrial Heat LLC, funded it with approximately eleven million dollars,
acquired the rights to the E-Cat technology, and appointed Andrea Rossi
as Chief Scientist.
Provides More Explosive E-Cat Information Since
the recent update from Andrea Rossi about E-Cat progress there’s
been a flurry of discussion on the Journal of Nuclear Physics with Andrea
Rossi posting at a level not seen for months. All of a sudden he has
started revealing information about his ongoing work in some detail.
Rossi Gives Year-End Update Reporting Important E-Cat ProgressIt’s
been a while since we have had much of an update from Andrea Rossi that
provides any level of detail. He has usually said that ‘now is
not the time for talking’, or something similar — but today,
for whatever reason, he has provided the following update on the Journal
of Nuclear Physics to Steven Karels:
Cars CEO Responds to Investor Questions A
few weeks ago we covered the LENR Cars pitch to be selected as a finalist
in the Future Energy contest from Ultra Light Startups. The application
process involves the ability to respond to questions from potential
investors, and LENR Cars CEO Nicolas Chauvin has provided some additional
information about his company in responses posted here.
Preparing Next Generation of E-Cat Developers There
was a time when Andrea Rossi was the only person on the earth who knew
the secrets of the E-Cat. He talked about having documents containing
those secrets deposited with his attorneys that could be opened in the
event of his untimely demise to keep his knowledge from disappearing.
Economic Impacts of the E-Cat What
the E-Cat represents is simple: a source of cheap, clean, compact, portable,
and abundant power. Such a revolutionary alternative source of energy
is tremendously needed in our world, and its arrival and proliferation
will affect countless businesses, industries, and sectors of our economy.
No aspect of our civilization will remain untouched. This article attempts
to list and briefly describe some possible impacts.
Wonders of the E-Cat Bold
adjectives are often used to create hype for all sorts of new technologies
and breakthroughs, but often the hyperbole is unjustified. In the case
of Andrea Rossi’s Energy Catalyzer, however, the advantages, benefits,
and capabilities of nickel-hydrogen E-Cat fusion are so significant
that simply put, the technology is astounding.
Magazine Features LENR/E-CatAn
article in Elforsk Perspektiv, a trade magazine published by Swedish
energy R&D organization Elforsk takes a serious look at LENR, and
Andrea Rossi’s E-Cat in particular. The title of the article is
“Unknown “nuclear” process can revolutionize the world’s
energy”, and it provides a comprehensive overview of the topic.
Rumor - E-Cat Report in 2013? Thanks
to an alert Swedish E-Cat World reader for the following post which
he found here on the Swedish Energikatalysatorn web site posted by someone
with the name ‘dave333'. The original was in Swedish, but here’s
an English translation:
the Eventual Press Conference Andrea Rossi has mentioned
that at some point, once the internal testing of the E-Cat that is apparently
currently ongoing, there will be a press conference held. I asked a
few questions of Rossi on the Journal of Nuclear Physics, and followed
up with an email for some more details about this event, and got a few
answers, but not many details.
of Rossi Sighting in SwedenThere is such a scarcity
of information coming from Rossi and Co., so it’s refreshing to
get a short but interesting report posted on the Swedish Energikatalysatorn.se
forum about an independent sighting of Andrea Rossi.
on 'Duty to God and Mankind' Andrea Rossi has provided
a bit more of a picture of his team’s goals and strategies in
some recent comments on the Journal of Nuclear physics. When a reader
asked if his American partner “has the will to give this technology
to Humanity?” Rossi replied: 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.
Fusion and Skeptopathy There is no better example
of skeptopathy doing great harm to humanity than the history of cold
fusion. Everyone is probably familiar with Fleischmann and Pons’
claim that they had discovered a nuclear reaction that occurs at (or
near) room temperature, compared with temperatures in the millions of
degrees that is required for hot fusion. Furthermore, I bet everyone
is also under the impression that their claim had been discredited –
wrong! Pons and Fleischmann never retracted their claim, but moved their
research program to France after the controversy erupted.
the E-Cat Stall - A Proposal (Guest Post)For
two decades, cold fusion (LENR) researchers have worked to make their
anomalous heat effects powerful, repeatable, and robust. With Rossi
and Focardi’s announcement of the E-Cat in January 2011, many
cold fusion enthusiasts felt that their dream had come true. Andrea
Rossi’s nickel-hydrogen technology was, and is, a marvel. I’m
tired of waiting. My desire is to see the “Rossi Effect”
be recognized as real by the entire world, be broadly utilized, and
end the age of fossil fuels. There needs to be an open source, civilian
style Manhattan project to bring this technology to light. Let’s
make it happen.
with Ed Storms on the Importance of Cold FusionI’m
grateful to Ruby Carat of Cold Fusion Now for bringing my attention
to this very interesting interview by John Maguire of the J.C.M. Blog
with nuclear scientist Dr. Edmund Storms, formerly of the Los Alamos
National Lab. It’s quite a long interview (50 minutes in total),
but if you have the time, it’s well worth it to listen to the
Much Nickel NeededAndrea
Rossi once again today reiterated his claim that the amount of nickel
used in the E-Cat reaction is miniscule — that: “The amount
of Ni used by the E-Cat, even in a widespread situation, would not affect
the world production of Ni. 1 g of mass yields 23 000 kWh and the used
Ni is anyway recyclable for all the other uses.”
Cold Fusion Entering the Final Stages? We’re
entering the market launch phase, Defkalion is loading up the science,
National Instruments is positioning for market share, partners of Mr.
Rossi are applying some corporate level conduct boundaries, the science
is being explored worldwide.
New Division For Leonardo Corp.Just
recently, Andrea Rossi commented on an idea presented on the Journal
of Nuclear Physics by Steven Karels. Mr. Karels said: “The
significant characteristic of the eCat technology, in my humble opinion,
is that it is excellent for long term, constant output applications.
An example of this is the baseload electric power plant, previously
discussed. “Two other applications that come to mind are: “naval
powerplants and railroad powerplants

27, 2013 - MFMP:
Independent Report of Defkalion's Hyperion to be PublishedThe
Martin Fleischmann Memorial Project have posted a very positive assessment
of this week’s ICCF-18 conference on their Facebook page. They
see it as being a ‘watershed’ event with convincing evidence
of excess heat being presented by Defkalion and Takahashi, and an important
advance for the principle of Live Open Science which the group is practicing.

Update: E-Cat Built Solely By Partner Works PerfectlyThe
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.

of the E-Cat, and Andrea Rossi faces threats against his safety if he
leaves the United States, he continues to forge ahead with adaptations
to his technology. The use of Stirling engines in his work means that
the Hot Cat has progressed to the point where Mr. Rossi and his team
are attempting to use the Hot Cat for electricity production.

Mizzou News, the news department at the University of Missouri, has
written an article by Nancy Moen title “Tabletop Nuclear Fusion”
which features LENR/cold fusion as the University looks forward to hosting
the 18th International Conference on Cold Fusion (ICCF-18) at the end
of July. In explaining the phenomenon of LENR, Moen writes:

temperature) to a customer who is willing to operate it as a pilot project.
The only thing the customer pays for is the heat the plant produces
— which should be cheaper than any heat they are paying for at
10, 2013 - Appendix
on Electrical Measurements Added to 3rd Party ReportA
new version of the 3rd Party E-Cat report has been uploaded to arxiv.org
site which now includes a new appendix on electrical measurments. This
has presumably been done in response to charges that the test could
have been faked by Andrea Rossi by means of supplying hidden power sources
to the E-Cat.

LENR (aka 'Cold Fusion') to Useful EnergyWe’re
in a time of big changes. The CEO of a new energy company developing
a revolutionary product says, “If we had started this ten years
ago, we’d be dead by now.” Even a change for the better
is not always easy. We resist letting go of an outmoded belief or worldview
despite the fact that it’s not solving our problems. It’s
all the more difficult to ditch a worldview if you’ve defended
it for many years and expect reward for your elite knowledge.

Corrects: "We Can Definitely Exclude DC Current" “In
the interview I answered that there was no direct measurement of dc
(since the clamps could not detect such). This was a bit hasty. In future
I will not answer such technical questions without conferring with all
coauthors. After analysing what we checked and measured (which were
many more variables that those from the clamps) we can definitely exclude
dc-current. (This is what comes from being nice to journalists.)”

Hot Cat paper is a gem Jed
Rothwell: I just read this paper for the

10, 2013 - What's
Happened to Andrea Rossi and his E-Cat?Yesterday
(May 7) Sterling D. Allan of PESN and Frank Acland of E-CatWorld conducted
a one and a half hour interview with Andrea Rossi hosted by Gary Hendershot
on his Smart Scarecrow service regarding developments in the E-Cat technology
based on the cold fusion technology called “LENR” for Low
Energy Nuclear Reaction. SmartScarecrow has chat room
where people could post questions, several of which were presented to
Rossi during the show. At its peak, there were just over 1000 people
listening to the live broadcast, which began at 4:30 pm Eastern time
(GMT-5), with nearly 200 people in the live chat. The conversation while
on YouTube is audio only. Rather than sit through over an hour and half
here is a brief summary.

what they say:
29, 2013 - What's
Happening on April 30th? [Updated (again)]
I’ve seen some speculative comments in various places about what
might be happening on April 30th with regards to the E-Cat, and I thought
it would be useful to try and nail down as much as is possible from
what Andrea Rossi has said about what exactly going on.
26, 2013 -Pending
3rd Party ValidatorsAs the
third party validation is pending public release, it felt appropriate
to go a little back in time to the beginning of 2013 to follow-up on
the 3rd party test and try and gather more info on the people involved
in the test. This is of great concern to many who follow the development
of Mr. Rossi’s technology, especially because The 3rd party validation
is basically seen as a “papal blessing” before commercial
Hot Cat availability. The hopes surrounding the validation report run
high, but there is a certain amount of trepidation surrounding the event,

on the Third Party TestsNo,
the test results have not been released, but there are some people (including
myself) who have been peppering Andrea Rossi with questions about the
tests that are supposed to wind up within a few days. He has been opening
up a bit about what is going on; it seems that if you ask the right
questions, he is happy to provide information (within limits). Here
are some of the Q & As that have been published on the Journal of
Nuclear Physics in recent days.
14, 2013 - Rossi
on the Military PlantSomeone
today asked Andrea Rossi about how the 1 MW plant that was delivered
to some military entity was doing. It’s a good question, since
apparently this military customer is so far, according to Rossi, the
only one he has with a working E-Cat.
2013 - Black
Swan Creator's Latest Work has Intriguing Implications for LENRThe latest work from one of our greatest living philosophers,
Nassim Nicholas Taleb creator of the Black Swan theory; has some interesting
implications for Low Energy Nuclear Reaction (LENR) or cold fusion research.
It also justifies the work of independent inventors such as Andrea Rossi
and those involved in the Martin Fleischman Memorial Project.
2013 - The
nuclear reactor in your basementHow would
you like to replace your water heater with a nuclear reactor? That’s
what Joseph Zawodny, a senior scientist at NASA’s Langley Research
Center, hopes to help bring about. It would tap the enormous power of
the atom to provide hot water for your bath, warm air for your furnace
system, and more than enough electricity to run your house and, of course,
your electric car.

is not likely to...
Power Production a Huge E-Cat Benefit In addition
to the cost benefits that the E-Cat can bring, another tremendously
important aspect of this technology is that is highly suited to allowing
