New Photo of the E-Cat Plant on Trademark Application

Thanks to Pietro F. for posting this link to a trademark application apparently made by Andrea Rossi to the US Patent and Trademark office.

The application was made for the ‘Cat and Ball Silhouette Design’ that we have seen on some official E-Cat images, and which is shown in this image from page 4 of the document linked above.

It seems that in order to get a trademark approved, you have to have it displayed somewhere, and so on page 3 of the application is a statement by a Henry W. Johnson, President of J.M. Products of Boca Raton Florida who states:

‘The attached photo has been made in our factory in Miami, Florida, and is related to the plant “E-Cat the New Fire” manufactured by Leonardo Corporation to supply thermal energy’

E-Cat Plant
 

My guess is that this photo was made at the factory where Rossi and his team built the plant, and not at the factory where the 1 MW plant is currently being tested. It looks like this photo is at the same location where this photo from Andrea-Rossi.com was taken.

Rossi said that this, and other photos on his website were taken during the building of the plant.

This new picture is not terribly informative, however it does seem to show the two shipping containers that Rossi has mentioned they are using. He has said that one container contains the plant itself, and the other is where the control system and workspace is located, and where Rossi says he is currently conducting Hot Cat R&D.

    The text on the logo says E-CAT THE NEW FIRE

      I thought that was interesting, too. Not sure when Rossi started referring to “The New Fire”, which I had previously associated with MFMP.

    J M Products in Miami appears to be a long dormant company.

    And Henry W Johnson of Boca Raton a company formation lawyer.

    • Frank Acland

      The trademark application says that the photo of the plant was taken in Miami, FL — not at the Boca Raton address.

      • That makes sense. The building above would be more of an office building.

  • LuFong

    It’s interesting that the application is for Leonardo Corporation/Andrea Rossi and not Industrial Heat, Inc. Also the letter sounds like something Rossi would write and not a native American speaker.

    so the first generators will be in miami?

      Well in that block, I could see:
      -Rossini Marble Supply
      -Tennis Plaza
      – Freight companies: Alexim, Bral Miami, Senaduana, Proline Cargo, CFT Cargo
      – assorted others that didn’t seem likely

      • TomR

        The Rossini Marble Supply Inc. has an address listed as: 3188 NW 77th CT, Doral, FL 33122 and an email address of http://www.rossinimarble.com Ph. 305-716-8878. Yes, it seems to be in the same block. They list the number of employees as 10 to 20, I wonder if any of the employees visit E-Cat World?

    Mr Johnson is a lawyer with 9 companies registered to him according to this site.
    To look at his photo, you would be hard pressed to envision him as among potential saviors of the human race, but his role in bringing LENR to humanity is nothing less than heroic.

    This Company has the most interesting name, most of the companies are fairly new.

    UNITED STATES QUANTUM LEAP LLC
    FLORIDA DOMESTIC LIMITED-LIABILITY COMPANY

    Here is a bio for Mr Johnson who is among other things is interested in Green Investments.
    http://www.evergreenui.com/bio_henry.php#

    This company is probably the factory
    J.M. CHEMICAL PRODUCTS, INC.

    Here is the linkhttp://www.bizapedia.com/addresses/7900-GLADES-ROAD-SUITE-530-BOCA-RATON-FL-33434.html

    • Alain Samoun
      • Ophelia Rump

        They are all out of one office but Mr. Johnson being a Lawyer, that may have several interpretations. I would not know what.

    • TomR

      It looks like they changed the name to: J.M. Products, Inc. on Sep. 3 or 4, 2014.

    • TomR

      It seems the address is: 7861 NW 46th St. Doral, FL 33166. Google shows this address in the street on one map and in the center of the long building in another. The long building looks like it could be the building that the picture shows the inside of.

      • Steven Irizarry

        I live in Miami so maybe I will take a drive there

    The top picture showing both containers is very interesting. It shows that the plant is sitting on the ground level of a loading dock. The dark triangular shape in the far left middle of the picture is a ramp used to connect the rears of trucks to the dock so freight can be rolled on and off. To the right of it there appears to be a large pipe running along the wall in the distance, likely the steam or hot water out line. Right below it is a white pipe, probably the water return. I don’t think the plant is permanently installed yet.

    • Ophelia Rump

      If I had to guess at the reason I would say blast isolation.
      A prudent factory owner. Consider it permanent.

    The attached photo… is related to the plant “E-Cat the New Fire”
    “the tached photo… say a phillips is related I believe none of the two containers shown above are related to the third (bottom) container. Looking at the lifting hole in the third container it is painted red, it has a rectangular block of timber underneath it and the container sports a grey doorway, and an air conditioner. I suppose two of them may have been taken at the relevant time and the signage may be a plant-on (ie. Photoshop style given the grainy edge of the cat sign), but why are the bars on the door on the Cat signed container (the first container) intrusive an not followed the profile of the container which are extrusive?

    Looks like a cat transfixed on a dot from a laser pointer. Gonna go ahead and just say I’m not a fan of the logo. I guess it’s cute and a little tongue-in-cheek, but it doesn’t strike the tone of “here this is a serious product that is going to change the world.”

    • Gerrit

      The product doesn’t need a logo to transmit that message. It is self evident.

    • Teemu Soilamo

      I think the silhouette looks monumental and iconic. Very tasteful.

    • GordonDocherty

      Neither does an Apple or a fluttering Window. They seem to do the job well enough, though – and, as we know, cats are the no.1 smash hit on the Internet. Also stresses the catalytic nature of the device – and the cat playing with the sun. Another trademark would also involve a mouse – anyone here remember Terence Cuneo?

    • Pekka Janhunen

      If one tilts one’s head 90 degrees to the left, one sees in the logo a sharp-nosed man’s profile in white, looking right, viewed from a lowered angle, and the red dot is his heart.

    • US_Citizen71

      I think it is a cat with its eye on the ball. ; )

    I love the logo. I have been following Andre Rossi since his first public demonstration and it reflects the evolution of the product and the character of Andre. If I am remembering correctly, the first device was called an energy catalyzer, which evolved into e-cat at some point. “The new fire” reference came along later, I am not sure who coined that term initially but it was after one of the successful tests.

    Regarding the ball, I really enjoy Andre’s sense of humor and philosophical outlook. So the ball could either be Andre’s humor coming through or it could have a deeper meaning that is not obvious to the rest of us. It always amazes me how, throughout the development process and working 16 hour days, he always makes time to respond on JONP. I also have no doubt that he also monitors ECW to monitor pertinent Iinformation.

    Just going in for my second year thermodynamics exam, would just like to thank everyone here for offering my such high class procrastination opportunities over the last two years. Wish me luck!!!

      Good luck, your future looks bright!

    Reminds me of the old RCA logo of the dog and the gramophone “His master’s voice”.

    I can’t help thinking this is all very low key and amateurish for something which is going to save the world.
    Somehow I was expecting something a little more more magnificent.

    • Pekka Janhunen

      Perhaps it will change the world into more amateur direction

    Hi Frank, did you ever ask Rossi about whether he had any relationship to JM Products, Inc? It would be interesting to see if he confirms that they own the factory where the plant was produced rather than them being the customer.
