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:

Industrial Heat involved in LENR Research in China and Around the World

Industrial Heat LLC the company that owns the rights to Andrea Rossi’s e-cat low energy nuclear reaction (LENR) technology has signed a major deal to transfer technology to China.

HydroFusion reported that Industrial Heat backer and Cherokee Partners CEO Tom Darden had signed an agreement to partriciate in the Baishishan International Innovation Park of China-US Science and Technology this appears to be a technology park similar to the Research Triangle in North Carolina where Industrial Heat is based.

New E-Cat Company Launched in UK has AmpEnergo Connection

 

 

An  Industrial Heat subsidiary based in the United Kingdom has a connection to Ampenergo, a defunct company set up to license Andrea Rossi’s e-cat low energy nuclear reaction (LENR) technology in America a few years ago.

Documents filed with Her Majesty’s Government’s agency for registering corporations Companies House, on May 9, 2015, created a private company called IH Holdings International Holdings Inc. The IH apparently stands for Industrial Heat – the company Cherokee Partners Chief Executive Officer Tom Darden set up to license Andrea Rossi’s e-cat technology last year.

Billionaires dump Oil Stocks, Ecat test could be over

Some of the biggest names in investment and finance are dumping oil and other fossil fuel stocks as quickly as they can.

Legendary American oilman T. Boone Pickens sold all of his oil stocks just four days after telling investors that oil prices had hit bottom at $26 a barrel on Monday February 1, Zero Hedge reported.  Oil was trading at around $30 a barrel on February 19, 2016.

Rossi could be working with Aircraft Company

Andrea Rossi and his e-cat team could be working with a US aircraft manufacturer. The low energy nuclear reaction (LENR) researcher made that revelation on his blog on Monday February 1. An expert with connections to a major aerospace company is apparently helping Rossi conduct research on his E-Cat X.

In response to a question from someone identified as J.C. Renoir Rossi made this intriguing remark:

“I am working with the help of a US expert f the field that works in a top concern of the USA and is related indirectly to a top aircrafts manufacturer; I am learning.”

Global Warming its Worse than We Thought

The damage done to the atmosphere by greenhouse gases could be far worse than we think. The effects of current burning of fossil fuels could be felt for over 100,000 years according to scientists at the Potsdam Institute for Climate Research in Germany.

Whooly Mammoths during the last ice age

To make matters the same research indicates that even limited burning of fossil fuels and other materials by humans could have a massive impact on the world’s climate. Andrey Ganopolski the lead researcher on the Institute’s latest study told CNN that he thinks that the burning of fossil fuels for the last two centuries could have delayed the next ice age by 100,000 years.

Is Piantelli close to Commercializing Technology?

There has been a sudden burst of activity from nicHenergy the Italian company associated with low energy nuclear reaction (LENR) pioneer Francessco Piantelli. The company’s website has been completely rebuilt and now contains a great deal of English language content about its work.

The White Chamber containing Piantelli's LENR device at nicHenergy's labs in Sienna, Italy.

The site states that nicHenergy’s goal is to conduct research into LENR, Lattice Assisted Nuclear Reaction (LANR), Chemical Assisted Nuclear Reactions (CANR) and Cold Fusion. The ultimate objective of that research will be to develop industrial power sources and compact devices that can be used as power sources.

Study Confirms Elite Science Bias

An interesting study published by The National Bureau Standards could show us why the scientific community is so reluctant to embrace new ideas like Low Energy Nuclear Reaction (LENR).

In Does Science Advance One Funeral at a Time? Researchers discovered that when a big name scientist or researcher dies, his or her field suddenly sees an eight percent increase in new papers and research, Vox reported. Researchers Pierre Azoulay, Christian Fons-Rosen and Joshua S. Graff Zivin also found that the rock star scientists’ colleagues and protégées see a decline in influence as scientific journals publish fewer of their papers after the icon’s death.
