Will the E-Cat Release be Delayed?

I have noticed that since Andrea Rossi started mentioning that he is working on a technology that will  self-destruct the E-Cat reaction chamber (safely) if it is tampered with, some have started seeing this as a reason, or excuse to delay the release of the technology.

If Rossi was a scammer and the E-Cat did not work, it would make sense for him to to have a reason not to deliver the goods as promised. But there has been no talk from Rossi about delaying the E-Cat’s launch. He continues to maintain that the 1 MW plant will be launched in October and commercialization of the technology will begin in November.

What Rossi HAS said is that the reason that it may take some time for home-based E-Cats to be installed is that they have not yet resolved the issue of how to prevent reverse engineering, but of the industrial E-Cats he has said, “In industrial plants this issue is more easy to afford and has been resolved”.

There’s no information about this problem has been resolved, and its possible that there could still be delays,  but from what Rossi has said I don’t think there is any reason at this point to think that he is involved in any stalling tactics. The last week of October can still be circled on our calendars!

    2. I’m curious about technology diffusion versus technology secrecy; how far would you be willing to go to protect your intellectual property? Would you be willing to delay the launch of the E-cat in order to invest time and resources on “self destruction” technology?

    2- yes

    We can take some comfort in this recent exchange on Rossi’s website:

    Dear Dr. Rossi,

    are you considering the release of your e-cat primarily as a business opportunity and secondary a moral responsibility for humanity or vica versa.

    Dear Susan:
    Vice versa.
    Warm Regards,

    I take this to mean that Rossi views the release of the E-Cat primarily as a means to help humanity first and make money second!

    Thanks for the excellent coverage about the E-Cat at e-catworld.com! I know that if any relevant questions are asked at journal-of-nuclear-physics.com, they will show up at e-catworld.com sooner or later and there will always be an interesting and unbiased analysis.

      Thanks, Mattias. Glad you enjoy the site.

  • I founded in Chile (eg., Southamerica) a small company focused on Energy Efficiency serveral years ago. We have trained more than 1,000 people on how to design and manufacture efficient and durable LED based lighthing fixtures, solar powered solutions, etc.

    I wonder if you Mr. Rossi are considering partnering with small but promissing companies to spread your work in the academic world. If so, you may want to know that I’ve been Director of an Engineering School, an IT Technical School, and Now I am managing ENERGY MARKET’s Technical School. It is fair to say, that I would appreciate very much the opportunity to help you to spread your technology and adnvancements, and help in penetrating the Chilean Government, and if that fails (you know how that is), we wuold gather some private investors for building a Power Plant in Chile…
