Rossi: Ecat Jury Trial Begins on June 26

The legal battle over the Ecat between Andrea Rossi and Tom Darden’s Industrial Heat is scheduled to reach a federal jury on June 26, 2017. Rossi himself made that announcement at his blog on June 11.

In response to a correspondent named Tom Conover, Rossi wrote:

“On 6-26-17 will start the trial with the Jury and it will last until end of July…during this period I will be totally focused on the trial.”

Some LENR and Clean Energy Updates

There is a little happening in the world of low energy nuclear reaction (LENR) and energy that we should be aware of. Some of the news stories of note include:

  • Ecat creator Andrea Rossi admitted he had surgery in April but did not say for what. When a reader named Miriam asked the inventor about three surgeries he received in April. Rossi replied: “Thank you for your concern. I am perfectly healed: I won this fight. Warm Regards,” on his blog.

  • Rossi does not consider his latest ecat model the QuarkX a “real thing.”

Rossi and Industrial Heat Getting Ready for Trial

It looks like there will be a trial in the case of Andrea Rossi and Leonardo Corporation vs. Thomas Darden, John T. Vaughn, Industrial Heat, IPH International and Cherokee Investment Partners.

A Joint Pretrial Stipulation filed on May 3, 2017 contains lists of witnesses and lays out exactly who the defendants and plaintiffs are. The plaintiffs are described as Andrea Rossi and Leonardo Corp. Darden and his companies are listed as defendants. Henry Johnnson, J.M. Products Inc., James A. Bass, Fulvio Fabiani and United States Quantum Leap LLC are named as third-party defendants.

Rossi Discussing Battery Powered Ecat

Andrea Rossi claims to have developed a battery-powered version of his e-cat low energy nuclear reaction (LENR) device. The controversial inventor also claims to be close to launching production of his energy source.

On April 28, 2017, Rossi posted this update to his Journal of Nuclear Physics blog:


We are going very well, also with the use of a battery as a power source.

Warm Regards,


Court Exhibit Claims E-cat Works

Andrea Rossi’s E-cat low energy nuclear reaction (LENR) plant operated successfully for 350 days and generated six times as much power as it, a court exhibit indicates. Exhibit Three the Energy Multiple Evaluation Final Report on the E-Cat One Megawatt (MW-1) Energy Plant in Miami seems to verify Rossi’s claims about the technology.

The report prepared by Dr. Ing Fabio Penon was entered as evidence in Rossi’s lawsuit against Industrial Heat LLC and Tom Darden in US District court in Miami. Darden’s attorneys have been claiming that the e-cat does not work for some time.

Rossi Demonstrated E-Cat for Navy and former DARPA Boss

Andrea Rossi may have demonstrated his E-cat low energy nuclear reaction (LENR) technology to the US Navy and the head of the Defense Advanced Projects Research Agency (DARPA) in 2011.

At his blog Rossi claimed he demonstrated e-cat at a laboratory in Washington D.C. that was connected with the U.S. Naval Research Laboratory (NRL) in summer 2011. The NRL is the U.S. Navy’s main research organization and it has been linked to LENR research in the past.

Here is what Rossi wrote on February 23, 2017:

Rossi in North Carolina, e-cat Test Postponed to July

There have been some pretty interesting developments in the world of low-energy nuclear reactions (LENR) lately. Some of the most interesting occurrences include:

  • E-cat inventor Andrea Rossi made a trip to Raleigh, North Carolina, with his attorneys. On January 18, Rossi told readers of his blog that he was in Raleigh with his lawyers. Raleigh is the home of Tom Darden, the owner of Industrial Heat, whom Rossi is suing for breach of contract over a failed e-cat licensure attempt. E-Cat World writer Frank Acland speculated that Rossi and Darden might be trying to settle their lawsuit through mediation.

Rossi could be Planning Demonstration of Unverified QuarkX Device

Andrea Rossi might be planning to hold a “public demonstration” of his Quark-X ecat low energy nuclear reaction (LENR) device before his claims about it have been verified.

Back in October Rossi hinted that he was planning a demonstration of the Quark-X ecat variant for February. In a response to Brokeeper a correspondent to his Journal of Nuclear Physics blog Rossi stated that the demonstration could be held before it achieved Sigma 5. When an experiment achieves Sigma 5 it means the scientist is confident of the results.

In a Christmas Eve (December 24) post Brokeeper asked: “Sigma5 reached?”

Rossi Working with Military Engineer on Quark X

Andrea Rossi is working with a US military engineer in the testing of his latest version of the e-cat low energy nuclear reaction (LENR) device. Here is what Rossi in response to an inquiry from long time correspondent Franck Acland on December 8:

“No, he is an engineer from a military concern of the USA.” This statement appeared at Rossi’s Journal of Nuclear Physics blog.

Rossi did not identify the engineer or state which branch of the armed services the person is identified with. All we know that the engineer is a man who has something to do with the US military.

CBC Reports on Cold Fusion and Andrea Rossi

A major North American media outlet; the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation (CBC), has reported on cold fusion or low energy nuclear reaction (LENR). The piece by Torah Kachur also mentioned Andrea Rossi and e-cat.

This is the first time a major media outlet has reported on Rossi’s work in a while. Kachur at least is fair she refuses to engage in the childish accusations of fraud and simply points out that Rossi’s claims have not verified.

She also makes a statement that explains why physicists avoid LENR like the plague.
