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.

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.

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.

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 Test to Conclude in February

February 2016 could be a very important month, that’s when commercialization of Andrea Rossi’s e-cat low energy nuclear reaction (LENR) technology could begin. On September 21, 2015, in a post at his blog Rossi himself revealed that the current round of testing of the one megawatt testing is supposed to wrap up in February 2016.

Here is what the Italian-American inventor wrote in response to a correspondent labelled Toussaint:

“The tests should end by February 2016, so long no major delays are caused by malfunctions.

Warm Regards,

A.R.”

LENR Popular in Russia

There is apparently a great deal of support for low energy nuclear reaction (LENR) research in Russia. A group of scientists in that nation that includes Alexander A. Prosvirov of the VNIIAES research institute is proposing a comprehensive program of research into the effect, e-catworld reported.

The scientist apparently want a state-level research program into LENR in the Russian Federation: they have apparently issued a manifesto that states:

“Objective: To expand in Russia at the state level, full-scale basic research of a new physical phenomenon: nuclear processes in condensed media or low energy nuclear reactions (LENR).”

Leonardo Corp Selling Ecat Heaters

Andrea Rossi’s Leonardo Corporation is now selling a product it calls “ECAT Heat Energy.” This appears to be a steam heating system powered by Rossi’s Ecat low-energy nuclear reaction (LENR) technology.

Few details about ECAT Heat Energy are available except that it produces steam heated to temperatures of 100 to 120 degrees Celsius (212 to 248 degrees Fahrenheit for my fellow Americans). This moves through heat exchangers that can deliver temperatures of between five and 95 degrees Celsius (41 and 203 degrees Fahrenheit). This sounds as if Rossi is producing a commercial heating and possibly a hot water heating system.

Sources Swedish Professor could have Replicated Ecat

Andrea Rossi collaborator and nuclear physics professor Bo Hoistad may have replicated the Italian-American inventor’s ecat low energy nuclear reaction (LENR) technology, E-Cat World and the Norwegian newspaper Aftenpost are reporting.

Hoistad as you might remember is a Professor at Sweden’s Uppsala University who has taken part in a number of tests of Rossi’s ecat technology. Most recently Hoistad was one of four professors from Uppsala who took part in an experiment that Rossi claimed vindicated the hot ecat technology in October 2015.

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:
