Some News from Around the World of LENR

There is quite a bit of big news going on in the world of low energy nuclear reaction (LENR) these days. Not all of which involves Andrea Rossi and his ecat.

Some big news includes: Airbus the giant European aircraft corporation has filed for a US Patent on something that sounds like LENR. Patent Application 2016/0228767 A1 is for “An environmentally friendly heat source suitable for the transportation sector.” The introduction mentions LENR and “an exothermic reaction in the form of a metal lattice supported hydrogen process.”

Who Owns the E-Cat Now?

Andrea Rossi might have other financial backers for his e-cat low energy nuclear reaction (LENR) technology that we might be unaware of.

The existence of such a backer seems to be revealed by Rossi’s lawsuit against his former partners at Industrial Heat LLC. E-cat World’s Frank Acland pointed out that one of the key witnesses in the case is JM Chemical Products Inc.; the Florida company involved in the e-cat tests that took place in Miami earlier this year.

Test of the Hot E-cat this could be the E-cat Quark X in action.

New LENR Experiments Revealed

Some pretty interesting new low energy nuclear reaction (LENR) experiments haven revealed to Andrea Rossi by a man named Tom Conover. Conover claims he is close to replicating the e-cat effect; which is supposedly the basis of Rossi’s technology, on Rossi’s blog.

“During the last 16 months I have built about 200 test reactors and used the Arduino computer as the control system to run tests on many of the test reactors that I constructed,” Conover wrote. Interestingly Conover claims to have achieved something similar to cold fusion.

Court Date Set for Rossi vs Industrial Heat

A trial date for Andrea Rossi’s lawsuit against Tom Darden and Industrial Heat has been set. An order; filed in US District Court in Miami, states that a jury trial in the case of Rossi vs. Darden et. All is set to begin on June 26, 2017 – about a year from now.

Judge Cecilla M. Altonaga is scheduled to preside over the case in Miami Division court, Pacer Monitor reported, PacerMonitor reported. Discovery presentation of evidence in the case is scheduled to end by February 27, 2017.

Will Musk Provide Model for E-cat Manufacturing

Andrea Rossi is doing two things this summer. He is plunging ahead with plans to manufacture his ecat low energy nuclear reaction (LENR) device; and continuing his legal war with former partner Industrial Heat LLC.

“The decision has been taken. We will have two poles of manufacturing; one in the USA and one in Sweden,” Rossi wrote on his blog on June 17, 2016. Sweden refers to the factory; Rossi and Hydrofusion are negotiating to buy in that country. The location of the US factory is unknown at this time.

 

Tesla Gigafactory in Production

Production of batteries has begun at Elon Musk’s gigantic Gigafactory in Northern Nevada. Bloomberg reported that the $5 billion factory is already churning out Powerwall home batteries.

The factory will turn nickel, cobalt, aluminum, lithium and silicon into the batteries for the half million cars; Musk claims Tesla will build by 2018, just two years from now. Currently the factory is only making battery packs for home and commercial use.

US House Investigates LENR, Hyperloop Technology Demonstrated

The United States Congress is investigating the US Defense Department’s work on low energy nuclear reaction (LENR).

Popular Mechanics reported that the Committee on Armed Services of the House of Representatives (the lower chamber of Congress) has requested a briefing on the Pentagon’s LENR research. The briefing from the US Secretary of Defense is supposed to take place September 22, 2016. The Committee is apparently interested in work that the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA); and the US Navy reportedly did on LENR.

Ecat: the Mystery Deepens

The mystery surrounding Andrea Rossi and his ecat low energy nuclear reaction (LENR) technology; seems to be getting deeper by the day. Swedish journalist and LENR enthusiast Mats Lewan has uncovered a variety of intriguing new data about Rossi; his business activities; and the lawsuit he has filed against Industrial Heat and Tom Darden at his blog.

A few of the more interesting pieces of information Lewan; and correspondents to his An Impossible Invention blog, have uncovered include:

  • Another Darden-connected company called Deep River  Ventures; which Lewan describes as a “venture capital group” based in Raleigh, North Carolina may have invested in ecat.

Industrial Heat: E-cat Does Not Work

Industrial Heat is now claiming that Ecat does not work. In a press release responding to Andrea Rossi’s lawsuit, the license for the inventor’s low energy nuclear reaction (LENR) technology did not produce the results claimed.

“Industrial Heat has worked for over three years to substantiate the results claimed by Mr. Rossi from the Ecat technology – all without success,” the release posted at PR Newswire claims. The company owned by Tom Darden’s Cherokee Partners also claims that Rossi breached its contracts.

The Ecat Report is Here!!

A report of the results of independent testing on Andrea Rossi’s e-cat low energy nuclear reaction (LENR) device is now available. Unfortunately the report is currently only available to Rossi and Industrial Heat which means that company’s owner Tom Darden undoubtedly has a copy.

This is is the latest artist's conception of Rossi's one megawatt ecat. unit.

There is no word on when the report will be made public but Rossi apparently received a copy on March 29 which was Tuesday. The inventor did say was in the report but he did make this post at his blog:
