Report of New Successful Parkhomov/E-Cat Replication from Moscow [Update: Preparing Report in August]

Thanks to those who have alerted me about a short report on the Russian Cold Nuclear Transmutation and CMM site about a new apparently successful replication of an E-Cat replica by a group from Russia. This is the link to the post:

Here’s a Google translation of text:

Yuri Malakhov, Igors Stepanovs and Nguyen Quoc Chi launched a device that gives excess energy (analogue-Parkhomov Rossi)

Employee Igor Stepanov Physics Department of Moscow State University and employees of the MEI Nguyen Quoc Chi and Yuri Malakhov created a device in which a cylindrical cell is loaded with a mixture of nickel powder and lithium aluminum hydride, is located in the calorimeter with running water.
After three attempts to launch completes the rapid destruction of the cell by uncontrolled overheating, June 19, 2015 have achieved stable operation with the release of excess energy. More than an hour at a temperature of about 1100 ° C 2100 W of heat allocated with the input electric power of about 850 watts.

It’s a very intriguing summary, and it will be important to get more information about this test, but at first glance there seems to be some strong indication of excess heat, with a COP above 2. The ‘uncontrolled overheating’ would be very interesting to get more information about, as that is something that would show strong evidence of a non-chemical event. It’s time to try and make some contacts to find out more if we can.

UPDATE: Thanks to Peter Gluck for sharing a response he received from the Russian team. The group will be taking a break during the vacation season, and prepare a report during August. Peter thinks they may present at a meeting in Sochi, Russia in early September.

  • Nicholas Chandler-Yates


  • Daniel Maris

    Excellent news! It will be good to get more detail on this.

  • Daniel Maris

    Is this the guy?

    I’m not getting any connection with Moscow State University though through Google.

    • ecatworld

      I’m not sure. This Igor Stepanov is in Latvia. It seems to be a common name.

      • Daniel Maris

        Yes, lots of ethnic Russians in Latvia. Academics can work in more than one institution of course…but a bit of a puzzle.

  • So the LENR pyramid grows.
    Expressivities of Expectations,
    Having am I.

    • Barbierir

      Interesting but needs more details…

    • Curbina

      I hope Peter Gluck can find some more information, he has a much better chance of getting to the core of news coming from the “eastern block”. 🙂

  • Hi All

    Yuri Malakhov appears to be this person from the ISTC

    Kind Regards walker

    • oceans

      These Russians are smart and highly motivated lets see where this new lead leads

      • Gerard McEk

        Very interesting and promising news. I hope that more details will be released soon.
        It seems to me that the Russian scientists go full steam ahead, while the western scientist still linger in the ‘pathetic science’ or ‘physically impossible’ dreams. How much evidence do we (‘the lingering’ politician and scientists) need to finally start with an examination of the provided evidence? Throw some money at it and do something!!!

    • Bob Greenyer

      MR Nguyen is a professor and a scientific supervisor to the laboratory of plasma physics, MPEI.

      They are all very competent and experienced scientists/experimentalists.

    • Bob Greenyer

      Yuri Malakhov is a scientific officer of the MPEI

      They have very significant scientific resources and many labs.

  • Guest2

    If the translation is correct, Nguyen Quoc Chi seems to be a Vietnamese name. They too are desperate for a clean power source.

    • Bob Greenyer

      My Partner is Vietnamese, if I can make contact – I will see what can be learned.

  • bachcole

    The LENR Juggernaut rolls on.

  • MasterBlaster7

    I dunno. Why do the “successes” always come out of “Russia”. A touch skeptical.

    • Chris, Italy

      Perhaps they’re more able to understand each other, hence follow the method in detail. Maybe also more folks up there trust Parkhomov enough to actually make a sufficient effort.

      • Bob Greenyer

        From my understanding and experience, the latter is the bigger factor at play.

        • MasterBlaster7

          I dunno. I would feel far more comfortable if MFMP et. all; closer to home were making “garge” breakthroughs. And, after such breakthroughs were replicating, exactly, and confirming the Russian and Chinese and everyone else abroad.

          I know its early on. But, all of these abroad “breakthroughs” v. all of these local “non-breakthroughs” are giving me the “Nigerian prince e-mail” itch.

          • Bob Greenyer


            Ash from GS3 is on its way to 2 independent bodies under double blind protocol testing approach and hopefully 1 more. All three have said they can do isotopic analysis for us.

            If for instance there is a statistically significant change in the 58Ni ratio – it will be happy days!

            we shall see

          • MasterBlaster7

            That is good.

  • Robyn Wyrick

    I would love to see the analysis of the ash to see if they validate transmutation!

    • Bob Greenyer

      I would expect to see the results at Sochi – where I believe we will hear more of Parkhomov’s results in detail also.

      I have been invited to go, I just need to see if I can spare the time – I’d also need to find an excellent technical Russian translator and aim to bring back a lot of film.

      • Mats002

        Excellent Bob! Hope you can do it.

        • Bob Greenyer

          Thanks – means getting another Russian Visa – I hope no one gets assassinated on the day I am there in within a 2km radius of my accommodation this time!

      • Dods

        Maybe Alexander’s daughter could help with translation If A you have contact details and B herself being there.

        • Bob Greenyer

          That is ok for the moments she is there, on hand – but having a dedicated translator in Italy for Piantelli and ICCF-19 was unbelievably valuable. Being able to interview, converse and ensure correct facts are acquired is so important.

      • Bernie Koppenhofer

        Bob, what is more important? You have been invited, go! What can we do to help? US businessmen must use translators all the time when traveling to Russia,

        • Bob Greenyer

          Thanks for the support – I’m working on it.

    • Mats002

      Thanks to AlainCo for this news:
      Russia LENR now in mainstream science journals!!! PopSci magazines are unwilling to write about claims outside mainstream journals, time to MOVE for you PopSci journalists out there!

      • Gerrit

        For PopSci journalists there cannot be a valid experimental result without a valid theory.
        So there is nothing to write about.

        • Private Citizen

          US’s Popular Science is a joke. They quit taking user comments long ago, so they can push their propaganda without contradiction.

  • Mats002

    Good analysis, that is a weakness of all kinds of Ivory Towers. Looking into oneself more than outlooking they are not aware a train coming…

  • Jan Nie

    Folks, these times are about good news.
    And finally after 9 years of pain and hard work, Steorn boys go into finale.
    No joke. As Brian Ahern always told LENR = in fact magnetism phenomenon,
    Steorn Boys are not out of this whole wide story.
    Think about this 3 minutes:

    • Daniel Maris

      Steorn is not credible.

    • Jonas Matuzas

      Jan Nie, what do you mean by this linkedin link ? what news do you have ?

  • Omega Z


    You’re so wrong. Millions of Americans are bilingual & many more that aren’t fluent enough to claim to be bilingual. Most school districts require at least 1 semester of foreign language to graduate high school for what it’s worth.

    The issue is geography. If you don’t use it, you lose it. The ONLY reason so many in Europe & other nations are bilingual or multilingual is they are only a couple hours from a different language border state.

    In the U.S., I can drive for days(Over 3K miles) & still not encounter a need for a foreign language. Further more, Our west coast is 6K miles from Asia. Our east coast is 3K miles from Europe. Yes, Our primary neighbors are oceans that have no language. It’s simply not Logical for the vast majority of Americans to learn a 2nd language. It’s a waste of time & resources that would be better spent learning something more useful.

    Note:I have a cousin that studied French in College. It didn’t do him much good when he went to the Great Wall of China. Lucky for him, English was very helpful.

    I would also point out- Having a 1000 languages with a 1000 different dialects is Not a good thing. In fact, in a modern world, it is bordering on stupidity. The World finds enough reasons for war without misunderstanding of language.
