On April 6 the Italian Office for Patents and Trademarks licensed the patent for Andrea Rossi’s energy catalyzer invention and the award has just been made public. Since individual EU countries no longer issue national patents, this is apparently an EU-wide patent.
This patent does not include details of the catalyst that allows the powerful nuclear reaction to take place within the E-Cat. Rossi has said that the patent on this catalyzer would be applied for separately.
The full text of the patent in English is available here under the name “Method and Apparatus for Carrying out Nickel and Hydrogen Exothermal Reactions.”
