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.

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.

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.”

Rossi Reveals Ecat X, Gates and other Billionaires Open Checkbooks for Clean Energy

Andrea Rossi has created a new design for his E-cat low energy nuclear reaction technology (LENR) that he calls the E-Cat X. The details of E-cat X are not available but Rossi has revealed it will be modular and possibly smaller and cheaper to manufacture.

Like his earlier E-Cat designs, Rossi wants to make the X a module so several small E-cats can be assembled into a large power unit. This means it could be used to power something as small as your house or assembled into a large scale power unit. Note: this does not sound that different from Rossi’s earlier designs.

Rossi claims “Well Known Companies” Have Placed Orders for E-cat

It is easy to see why a lot of people do not take Andrea Rossi very seriously. He has made yet another round of sensational yet unsubstantiated claims about his E-cat low energy nuclear reaction (LENR) technology.

In an interview with Frank Acland that popped up on e-catworld.com on October 25, 2015, Rossi said “yes” when Acland asked: “Have you had any orders so far from well-known companies?”

Unfortunately Acland forgot to ask the next logical question which is: “can you identify those companies?” Since Acland did not ask the question, the response above is absolutely meaningless. Even if Rossi refused to identify the companies that would at least be a response. It would also be news.

E-Cat Lab Moving to Raleigh Suburb

We now know the general location where research into Andrea Rossi’s e-cat low energy nuclear reaction (LENR) technology will be conducted in the United States. The company which purchased the rights to e-cat for $11 million last year, Industrial Heat LLC is moving to a 20,000 square foot laboratory space in Cary, North Carolina – a suburb of Raleigh, The Triangle Business Journal reported.

Downtown Cary North Carolina the e-cat could soon be there.

The first public demonstrations of e-cat in the United States could be held at the space, The Journal reported. Industrial Heat hopes to make its first big, proven breakthrough in Cary.

Rossi thinks Ecat will soon be Replicated

Andrea Rossi thinks that others will soon be able to replicate his ecat low energy nuclear reaction technology much like Alexander G. Parkohomov did in December. The inventor even admitted as much in a post on his Journal of Nuclear Physics blog.

In a response to a post by Hank Mills Rossi wrote:

“I know some of the groups that are making replications: they are making a good job with strong engagement and I think soon successful experiments will be announced.”

I think that we can infer two important conclusions from this somewhat cryptic answer. These conclusions are:

New LENR Efforts Reported Rossi and Parkohomov could Team Up

At least three more physicists could be close to replicating Andrea Rossi’s e-cat low energy nuclear reaction (LENR) device. Russian physicist Alexander G. Parkohomov who reported replicating Rossi’s hot e-cat in December made a very interesting revelation.

Alexander G. Parkohomov

After attending the 19th annual International Conference on Cold Fusion (ICCF 19) in Padua last week, Parkohomov made a fascinating post on this blog. The Russian revealed that Rossi’s long collaborator Giuseppe Levi is conducting his own research at the University of Bologna.

Rossi claims to be working with Major Nuclear Physicist

Andrea Rossi claims he is working closely with what he describes as a “major nuclear physicist” who is a professor of physics at a university on his low energy nuclear reaction (LENR) technology. Unfortunately the ecat inventor did not identify the physicist or the university.

In a series of posts on his blog Rossi claimed that he is having regular Skype conversations with the physicist about the test of the ecat in Lugano, Switzerland in October, 2014. Rossi did not say what the two were talking about but he gave a strong hint at the next stage of ecat development and publicity in this intriguing post:
