Mats Lewan Expects ERV Report Publication Soon, Close to Making Decision on Symposium (Update: Rossi "100% Sure Report Will be Published")

Mats Lewan has posted a new article on his An Impossible Invention website where he reviews the latest news about the E-Cat.

His article is here: https://animpossibleinvention.com/2016/04/07/andrea-rossi-sues-industrial-heat-for-89m/

Mats is positive about the developments. He states “The good part is that all this info now is public, that the one-year 1MW was successful, and that commercially viable LENR is here to stay, and that it will change the world.”

In addition to reviewing the news we discovered from the court case documents and the Leonardo press release, he adds a few interesting points:

He says that he has heard independent information (not from Rossi) about people connected to IH “actively trying to engage experts in the field to work on replication of Rossi’s effect, while telling various stories about Rossi”

He also writes:

“We will probably soon see the full report that was delivered to Rossi and Darden on March 29.”

“As for the New Energy World Symposium, I’m very close to take the final decision to hold the event now.”

Mats has always said that he won’t hold the symposium unless the ERV report is ‘clearly positive.’ So from what Mats is saying he expects the report to be published openly.

UPDATE: Andrea Rossi on the JONP responded to this question: ” Dear Dr. Rossi, What’s going to happen to the pubblication of the report, with the recent litigation on course ?”

Andrea:
We are going to publish it as soon as my attorney gives me green light. I am sure 100% it will be published.
Warm Regards,

  • Michael W Wolf

    Matts may be bias but he is not a fraudster. He believes everything he says. If he says it is confirmed, I believe we can take it to the bank.

    • Ged

      Also, if his info is right, then IH was indeed running around with Rossi’s tech trying to get new engineers to take over in making their own version of the e-cat. I could see why the risk of getting cut out of his own invention might set Rossi off.

      We’ll have to see as we gain more info.

      • Didn’t Rossi say some time ago that IH is itself able to build working reactors completely independent of him?

        So they already replicated it.

        Maybe they are looking for scientists which will improve the technology like Rossi is doing (Hotcat -> Ecat X).

        • Ged

          He did say that, indeed. Thank you for reminding me.

          • (As above): Yes, he said they constructed the E-Cat, but he didn’t mention the fuel. However, from what’s stated in the complaint document and in the license agreement, he transferred all knowledge, including the formula for the fuel, but that doesn’t necessarily mean that IH has been able to replicate the effect. As we have seen, it’s not a toy for amateurs. Particular skills are needed, and IH maybe didn’t have them.

          • Michael W Wolf

            Hmm, what if he gave them the sauce that wasn’t processed? It would explain why their reactor at Lagano performed but not that well.

          • SG

            Remember that the Lugano testers purposely didn’t enable the self-sustain mode. They thought it would be easier to test that way (in my opinion, a mistake).

          • Hador_NYC

            so what if they are? The US being a huge consumer of energy, and a country that would benefit immensely from effectively free energy, why wouldn’t it, we, benefit from this tech? Oil jobs, while well paying, would not tank teh economy if they went away. They would not any time soon, anyway, if this tech was finally starting to deploy. The gain would be that energy intensive activities, like steel making, would be cheaper to do here. Manufacturing in general, which has been decimated in the US in the last 20 years would be much cheaper to do here again, thus the US would benefit mightily. Plus, we’d have no more need to defend the Persian Gulf. That would be good for us too, and our own oil supplies would be enough as we transitioned to this. The US G is not the evil bad guy some folks here seem to think it is.

            Companies, though, well there is a fair point. Armstrong certainly got nothing for his work, Tesla, nearly nothing, and the list sadly does go on and on.

          • Bernie Koppenhofer

            Right, and I think the ash test results were a surprise to Rossi, and could have led to an improved E-Cat.

      • Michael W Wolf

        If they did that, how can they get an engineer convinced without disclosing the information that is forbidden by their contract?

  • Tom59

    “People telling various stories about Rossi” – is this a hint that AR has trouble to keep focus and stay humble in the center of this development? That would be sad in the moment of victory…

    • The stories were not necessarily relevant or true.

      • Examples? Or is this another secret?

        • No big secrets, but I need to protect my sources, so I cannot say more.

          • Can you say if they were IH being misled versus IH being malicious?

  • Adam

    Thanks LENR G for great summary:

    The main points for me are:

    – The COP was over 50, verified by an ERV, and Rossi/Leonardo have now made a legal claim to that effect. This is worlds apart from claiming COP 6+ on JoNP and virtually eliminates any possibility that Rossi is a scam artist. Measurement error is a ridiculous explanation at that performance level and otherwise co-conspirators would have to be involved for years while Rossi lived inside a container for a year. Not a measurement error. Not delusional. Not an epic scam. Official legal claims. Occam’s razor = E-Cats work as advertised.

    – The ERV was Dr. Penon, previously associated with Rossi. This will keep the skeptopaths in business indefinitely as will the interpretation of the lawsuit and IH press release as Industrial Heat bailing on Rossi and the E-Cat simply because it doesn’t work.

    – This is most likely a fight over money and IP. Industrial Heat paid $11.5 M to Rossi upon delivery of the plant and its subsequent 24 hr verification by Penon (so at least at that point they were satisfied with Penon and the measurements — that would have been the time to blow the whistle if they had uncovered a scam). Industrial Heat received the secret sauce at that point. For whatever reason they are balking at the last $89 M. Maybe they only want to pay half and force it into the 5% royalty scheme because they think they’ve got a marketable product via another asset (see 3.2 (c) in agreement). Maybe they couldn’t raise the money. Maybe it’s just business from their perspective and they are optimizing the position of their shareholders. Or maybe they think they are the victims of fraud. We anxiously await their position.

    – The plant customer is JM Chemical Products Inc (JMC) in Doral, FL led by a Henry W Johnson. They appear to have first registered in June 2014. It’s not clear to me after a little Googling what they make. The size and timing of their creation do not add any credibility. The scenario of Rossi recruiting Penon and others to his evil scheme and creating a “chemical company” out of thin air with a willing flunky to back up the claimed energy savings fits the facts to some extent. We are far from the ideal scenario of UL as the ERV validating a COP of 50 at NASA or DOW Chemical.
    7861 NW 46th St Doral, FL 33166-5470
    ****************************************************************
    People involved in an “independent test” can not be at any way connected to Rossi or IH. Case closed. So this does look good. COP of 100 figure is meaningless unless the client is Dow Chemical (or other serious industrial entity) and the ERV is a US Naval Lab employee (nuclear submarines (?)), NASA employee, or person working for company that makes or maintains nuclear power plants…Both Rossi and IH are totally guilty of not setting this up in a right way.

    • I hope I am more right than wrong in my inferences!

    • Michael W Wolf

      poppycock Ih had 2 of their people there. It’s about IP and contractual disputes. Not performance disputes. IH thought they had the secret sauce. But there are many sauce recipes. Some give only anomalous heat, others give a CO of 50. lol IH thought they were playing Rossi, just like Defkalion did. Where’s Defkalion? Yep gone with nothing.

      • Bernie Koppenhofer

        I think you might be right, Rossi has been taken to the cleaners by the Italian mafia, he learned a lot about trusting, especially when so much money is involved.

    • Bernie Koppenhofer

      It is a strong possibility they could not find the ERV you propose because of the stigma that has been created around LENR

  • Curbina

    Just wanted to say: May the ill wishes of all pathoskeptics are multiplied for them and their offspring for generations to come. They are sure this is the end of the Rossi Saga, while its obvious for anyone with 1 cm3 of gray matter that this is only the end of the beginning…

    • Rossi is such a brilliant scammer. Making easily falsifiable claims in court documents and demanding trial by jury — an expert stroke. His ability to inspire confidence in his ludicrous claims by subjecting himself to legal oblivion is awe inspiring. /snark

      • Michael W Wolf

        I can see him with hat shipping container behind the courthouse. lol

        • Brokeeper

          I’d rather like to see him carry a bright 100W light bulb not plugged in for days/weeks.

          • Michael W Wolf

            If the issue IH has is that the 1mw did not perform, the quarkx won’t do. But I don’t know why Rossi doesn’t do that anyway. 🙂

          • Brokeeper

            Standalone lightbulb.

  • LuFong

    From Matts Blog: “on people connected to IH, actively trying to engage experts in the field to work on replication of Rossi’s effect, while telling various stories about Rossi, all indicating that IH might have been missing some essential info, or at least wanted to get this info before paying Rossi.” [emphasis mine]

    Maybe the basis of IH’s actions? I was under the assumption that IH had everything needed to replicate the Rossi effect. They produced the Lugano report reactors. Did they produce the reactors for the 1MW plant?

    • Michael W Wolf

      Lagano was not what was in the 1mw reactor. This will be their complaint I think.

      • US_Citizen71

        Read the amendments on sifferkoll’s blog, IH changed the deal to be the 6 cylinder 250kW design in the last amendment. Also it only needed a COP of 2.6 to be validated.

        • Michael W Wolf

          Yea I just saw that. I am still pretty sure it will be over IP dispute.

    • Billy Jackson

      i am absolutely positive that at some point in the past year Rossi stated that IH constructed their own e-cat from Rossi’s instructions with no active input from Rossi.. i just don’t know what thread that was stated in 🙁

      • Yes, he said they constructed the E-Cat, but he didn’t mention the fuel. However, from what’s stated in the complaint document and in the license agreement, he transferred all knowledge, including the formula for the fuel, but that doesn’t necessarily mean that IH has been able to replicate the effect. As we have seen, it’s not a toy for amateurs. Particular skills are needed, and IH maybe didn’t have them.

        • Sanjeev

          The Schedule 3.2(b), Procedure for validation of ECat IP (last but one page), says that LC/AR must demonstrate the procedure to make a working ECat. (Among other things like full documentation and instructions).
          If that happened, I see no reason why IH can’t replicate. They ensured that they get a working formula.
          IF…. IH didn’t get that and can’t replicate then according to this license agreement, the breach will be by Rossi.
          Tricky affair, isn’t it 🙂

        • wpj

          Surely the IH people were involved in the modification to the 4 x 250 kW system which was used; we saw pictures of them working there.

          • artefact

            We heared Fabiani telling us while being paid by IH that he does not know the fuel because it is not his job. Everything is stricktly separated.

          • We also heard Fabiani sing the praises of the amazing E-Cat and that he’s seen mind-blowing things.

            So Industrial Heat, through the person of Fabiani, at least at that moment in time fully believed the E-Cats work as advertised.

          • Michael W Wolf

            That is exactly right. IH can’t claim it didn’t work without being contradicted by their own engineer.

        • Andrew

          Also in the agreement papers it does state that National Instruments supplied the control boards but the programming was custom by Rossi. Maybe that’s the key they’re missing, the programming.

        • sam

          Do you know much about the Scientist that did the EVR report
          Mats

  • Michael W Wolf

    Too bad, then the independent people will be 1000 meters from the real reactor. lol

  • Michael W Wolf

    No way. they knew about every step of the report. It is IP issues. As usual with new tech.

    • Billy Jackson

      i am starting to lean toward your view.. i think this is about future e-cat products or those in development now.. if rossi is taking a “no you only get what you contracted for not future upgrades” .. well that would make me want to terminate the contract too. The onus is still on IH to prove they were not out to steal the technology which sorry to say.. rossi put some pretty damning evidence out there that they were not playing strait… but again.. this is all about perception.. so still waiting on a reply from IH.

      • Michael W Wolf

        Yea, the sad thing is Rossi could lose the case. But at least we’ll have the tech. Rossi may end up like Tesla. I hope not.

      • SG

        Yes, but the agreement clearly states that IH gets a license to Mr. Rossi’s improvements. Even Mr. Rossi stated on his blog that the e-CatX is included in the license to IH. IH would have had a license to all of Leonardo’s (hundreds?) of pending patent applications. IH could have had access to it all. And instead, they made a calculated decision not to part with the $89M. Why we ask? It is a mystery for now, but might be revealed in IH’s response to the complaint. My personal conjecture is that IH is going to claim that Mr. Rossi somehow breached the agreement. IH will then attempt to go to market with their own “improved” version of the e-Cat.

        • Michael W Wolf

          I don’t think they have the secret sauce. A court may indeed force rossi to pony up said sauce or be subject to fines beyond belief for breach of contract and damage to IH. Remember, we won’t be on the jury. Rossi’s invention may be at great risk of being controlled by someone else. Bell didn’t invent the telephone but won it.

          • SG

            I think they have some of the secret sauce, but maybe not all. IH made the Lugano device. They also have filed at least one patent application of their own including their own co-inventor.

          • Michael W Wolf

            Yep. I was thinking, if they hired that co-inventor from a competitor after the contract was signed, that may also be a breach.

  • julian becker

    would be quite a movie plot.

  • Michael W Wolf

    If you don’t know it is real yet, then you prove my point below.

  • Gerard McEk

    I expect that AR is looking for money now that IH does not want to deliver. The real secret may be the activation of the fuel. Once activated it must be used within a certain time, otherwise it does not work anymore. Maybe he wants to be the one and only fuel supplier (as long as he can). Maybe crowd funding will be a next move….?

    • bachcole

      I got a lot out of this: http://www.drboblog.com/better-call-saul-andrea-rossi-vs-darden-co/

      • NT

        Very good link Bachcole, I will pass it on to many I know and work with…Thanks, NT

      • Carl Wilson

        Very helpful. For me, special interest in:

        “Rossi has developed a second generation technology that is claimed to capable of producing heat, light and electricity (not only heat)” Doktor Bob

        Going from steam to electricity keeps you to some degree within the BAU frame. Electricity direct (or via EM radiation) busts the current industrial model quickly.

    • Gerard McEk

      PS. I wonder why IH does not want to pay. They must have good reasons and well defendable for court. Maybe AR has once delivered the activated fuel and allowed IH to analys it and use it. Later they wanted to replicate but failed over and over again. (BTW I believe activation happens in a LENR reactor).

      • Billy Jackson

        I suspect its about control or money. Rossi is the inventor. and a company like Dardens either have a tendency to be a silent investor or a controlling interest with active management. I don’t think they want to be silent and passive.. so this has to be about control.. it shouldn’t be about the inability to pay since Cherokee is worth about 2 billion(?)

        Its all a guessing game right now.. we have one side of the story. and its heavily influencing the mindset of those who are outside looking in. (including mine!)

    • bachcole

      Dr. Bob, http://www.drboblog.com/better-call-saul-andrea-rossi-vs-darden-co/ , says that this lawsuit does not mean that Darden et. al. do not want to pay. He calls it a hedge suit, just to make sure that they pay. He said that hedge suits are common. What do I know?
      He also said that I.H. would have to sign off on the test or else their investors would go ape-$hit. But, again, what do I know?

  • Carl Wilson

    “IH can even have been approached by more powerful entities, seeing the E-Cat as a threat…” (Mats Lewan)

    I’ve been looking for someone to mention this. Not unlikely somewhere on these threads — already being discussed. I can’t keep up.

    When the orbits of planets don’t make sense, look for the effect of another planet.

    • Michael W Wolf

      I think I started that stuff about government. I was just being paranoid I think, I hope. I really believe this dispute is the usual IP fight.

      • Billy Jackson

        The problem with conspiracy theories is proof. we all have tendencies to believe our own convictions be they false or otherwise.

        • I don’t think asserting US Government involvement is out of left field. We know that SPAWAR, NRL, DIA and NASA at a minimum have awareness of developments. If they started getting reports of COP of 50 from people beyond just Rossi it stands to reason that they would jump on it.

          And the USG may have valid reasons for delaying or suppressing the technology for now.

          • SG

            The folks from SPAWAR, NRL, DIA and NASA are probably monitoring this blog as well. Frank, can you confirm from the website logs?

          • Michael W Wolf

            Well you all said I wacko a few days ago when I said I smelled a rat. But now you sound wacko. lol Just kidding. But I was right about the rat.

          • As Carl Wilson eloquently put up-thread: “When the orbits of planets don’t make sense, look for the effect of another planet.”

        • Michael W Wolf

          Yep. When people tell me you can’t believe what is on the internet, I tell them it is all on the internet. The good, the bad, and the ugly. You just have to view all sides and decide who you believe. But the truth is there for all to find. How do you think I found LENR? I believe I believe, because I don’t believe the establishment anymore, nor should you folks. I have found that they have an agenda and that agenda is tied to their pockets. Can I get an Amen!? 🙂

    Yes, could be.
    But the agreement includes everything. Rossi can’t hide anything once he accepts the $10m payment, he is bound.

  • sam

    At least it would not be Scientists
    worried about there careers.

  • Skeptopaths, please explain why Rossi, having landed an amazing and improbable $11.5 M off of his 5 year long con, would live every waking hour inside a shipping container for the next year only to get caught and then file legal documents asserting a COP of 50 and request a trial by jury that would surely expose him to massive legal fees and humiliation in a contest the he would surely lose?

    And why would Penon go along with that?

    They’d be gone after the $1.5M. After the extra $10 M at the latest.

    Scam theory = dead on arrival.

    • Mats002

      Maybe he got high on the con, feeling victorious and wanted more thrill. After a successful $10M scam he believed so hard in his scam skills, he went on even harder, spending 1 year in the container which is a safe known place after long time in jail. Now his mind is in a mental state of being a godlike creature that can do anything to anyone, man or organisation of any size.

      No I think it is more plausible he have the goods. People around him would see signs of mental illness, no one have stated that.

      • Megalomania might be an explanation for a solo artist. But here Penon is involved too and has much at stake. Remember for this scam theory to hold water the Rossi scam mega-team must include not only himself but also Penon and Levi (and possibly others).

        • Billy Jackson

          Only the most hardcore of the skeptics are still sticking with the scam/con thing.. i think that has been laid to rest finally. While some still say its not possible as he claims.. very few deny that something weird is going on.. it may be a matter of semantics they balk at calling it nuclear or so on..

      • Michael W Wolf

        Well IH will have a big problem if they claim ecat under performed. We have a statement from their lead engineer that it over performed. When Fabiani takes the stand, it will be over for IH. Is Fabiani now a double agent? Get a grip man. If you are not going to keep up with all the information, you should not slander when all accounts say you are wrong. Do you always slander people without proof?

    • Michael W Wolf

      Yep. Mills secured 60 million and didn’t run away. These skeptopaths aren’t as smart as they think they are. We should change the moniker to “skeptotards”. And “establotards”.

      • Put up or shut up time for Mills came and went about 5 years ago. Whether he has something is irrelevant because he never ever ever lets it out. He might as well not exist.

        We’re just starting that clock now for Rossi and IH as they recently achieved commercial viability (they say).

        • jousterusa

          This is a largely unheralded yet truly epochal moment in the history of human civilization. Andrea Rossi’s absolute and unflagging dedication to his achievement will lift him into that pantheon of scientists who include Tesla, Edison, Ford, Curie, Salk and a mere handful of others.
          We are privileged one and all to be here at the dawn of a new age of human history.

          • Brokeeper

            Keep ringing that bell, brother!

          • Michael W Wolf

            No man, Ford or maybe Edison apply. Those others used their brilliance, Rossi used his tenacity. Different but still Nobel prize worthy.

        • Michael W Wolf

          Nope. “Now Mills, he’s the one”. a quote from Piantelli, the man with the theory that led to Rossi’s ecat. No better compliment can come from a competitor. I think you are wrong on this one G.

          • However admired Mills is by Piantelli it does not erase decades of product announcements that resulted in nothing.

            Nothing at all.

            He has destroyed his own credibility. If someday soon he releases something that works I will rejoice. Until then I have him on ignore. I will do the same to Rossi if his rush to flood the market with E-Cats devolves into nothing.

            I have produced the same amount of hydrino-powered products as Mills. Perhaps Piantelli thinks highly of me as well.

    Another recap:

    The train is picking up speed

  • US_Citizen71

    Lack of payment should be proof enough if the report shows a high enough COP.

    • Michael W Wolf

      Not if IH can make a case that Rossi breached the contract first, Right?

        That is true, but I am not sure how he would have done that. They would have called him on the lack of complete formula before the test started. They delayed the start for over year, plenty of time to make an ECat or 12. Rossi allude to many things on JoNP but never stated much as fact, so I can’t believe that they have him on breach of NDA. I don’t see any other ways he would have breached it.

        • Michael W Wolf

          Well If they don’t have the money and cheroke is not responsible for said money, then they may have found something Rossi said that could give them an out. A court case is cheaper than the 89 million if they can win. Remember it is what you can convince a jury of not the facts. Remember OJ? Anything can happen really. But rossi has no choice.

  • Welp. Bad news gang. Industrial Heat says they can’t validate: “Industrial Heat has worked for over three years to substantiate the results claimed by Mr. Rossi from the E-Cat technology – all without success”

    Worst possible turn of events.

    • Heath

      Oops…

    • SG

      What else would they say? Sort of belies their actions of filing their own patent based on Mr. Rossi’s underlying invention. But they have been forced into a corner, and they are now going to lash out with everything they have.

    • Barbierir

      So the PR claims that as far as they know the Ecat isn’t proved working. Let’s wait for the ERV report

      • So the report will be released and will be astounding. There will probably not be any glaring weaknesses to it that points to measurement errors of a factor of 50 (I mean, come on). Penon and I guess others (West and Fabiani) will have signed off on it. But Industrial Heat is saying nope, not accepted.

        Unless we are told why, that leaves us where exactly?

        • Barbierir

          The PR doesn’t square with their previous actions. Now if Rossi publishes the report they will have to counter it by finding glaring errors

    • Ged

      Well then! That is what we’ve been waiting for to hear.

    • Stephen

      If they thought it was invalid, why on earth did they try to submit a patent on it last year? Did I miss something?

      • Not to mention fork over $10 M after a 24 hour validation. Inexplicable behavior by IH.

    • Josh G

      What utter hogwash. I guess that’s why they paid $11.5 million so far after doing their own due diligence and tests on the e-cat and filing patents. Imagine how Woodford capital and the Chinese feel about their investments in IH…

      • Ged

        Hm, it is odd. 3 years, and yet they kept going so long, while knowing every step of the way the performance of the plant? Why not just cancel and stop the project? Well, I am sure they’ll counter file and we’ll get a Lot more data from that.

        • Josh G

          Where did you read that Penon is a former compatriot of Rossi’s?

        • Michael W Wolf

          They should have had that lawsuit before the end of the ecat test. To not file is bad for them.

    • NT

      Looks like we are headed for a court mandated and overseen public demonstration by Rossi of his e-cat capabilities as used in the one year test at least…

      • Michael W Wolf

        Like someone said it will take two weeks to prove them wrong.

        • Fibber McGourlick

          notice they didn’t countersue for fraud.

          • SG

            I don’t think they have filed their response yet. My guess is that IH will allege fraud, breach, possibly even defamation.

          • Omega Z

            I don’t think filling a lawsuit in itself can be claimed as defamation.
            Up until filling this suit, Rossi has said nothing derogatory about any of those involved.

    • Michael W Wolf

      Well they better be ready for their engineer’s testimony. Fabiani works for them. And after three years they felt the need to apply for a co-inventor patent? bull crap. And they gave 11.5 million to said scammer? That means they are too incompetent or lying.

    • Sanjeev

      Yes, worst possible. But was expected. It has a bright side though.
      This will require Rossi to prove that the plant works, which will be a public proof, open and transparent, not hidden under NDAs and secret agreements.
      The agreement is void, so a new license can be granted to a better party.
      Whatever happens, happens for good.

      • NT

        I agree Sanjeeev, everthing may be out in the open, probably as Rossi now prefers…

      • Ethel Mermaid

        Actually, this lawsuit may not hinge on the Ecat working, but just on the language in the contract and whatever the report says. If IH said that they will pay upon receipt of a favorable report, whether they could replicate or not may be a moot point.

        • Sanjeev

          Yes, may be, because the agreement requires that they must pay based on the report and report only. No other condition is needed as far as I can see. They can’t hold the payment if some other tests failed or they don’t trust the ERV.

    • artefact
    • Billy Jackson

      Would not the release of the report by the 3rd party report invalidate the claim that it was never validated? if Rossi has signed copies of all 3 reports.. IH is going to get hung out to dry. I Do want to state one thing.. while this may be about control and money.. for Cherokee there is far more at stake than 89 million. If Darden is caught up in a fraud or scam of his own initiation or even out right lies. he stands to loose control of 2 billion dollars in investments. Loss of confidence in him will lead to investors demanding their money back. You can bet he’s coming out swinging with the best PR money can buy.

      • If the ERV(s) that they both paid for as a neutral submits a report that says it works to the tune of 50x, then what is IH’s problem?

        I’m guessing but it seems like they’ve been trying to replicate with other engineers and can’t do it. Maybe that’s the issue for them? They don’t believe the report because they can’t make it work outside of Rossi’s container?

        • Michael W Wolf

          Just like I said. They can only make a kitty cat.

          • NT

            But a working kitty cat proves Rossi has the goods. So they blew trillions even knowing his stuff works – does not compute in my book. something else going on here?

      • Michael W Wolf

        I don’t think cheroke is on the hook, and it explains the subsidiaries IH set up.

        • LilyLover

          You are right, that’s why the IH was set up.
          BUT
          Internet will make it next to impossible that Cherokkee will not lose customers.
          The first time callers to fidelity will start asking “Is Cherokkee in my portfolio? Delete them.” The news will spread. Cherokkee is over.
          Bye immorals.

      • cashmemorz

        Another possibility is that some of the more powerful investors are using Cherokee and IH as a tool for the investors own use to slow down LENR.

      • Omega Z

        “2 billion dollars in investments”
        Those are Brown field investments or assets hard to move and recover money from.
        So maybe, they just couldn’t pull $89 million together in time.

    • LuFong

      Could mean they have not been able to replicate Rossi’s E-Cat. As Mats Lewan has said, this could relate to the fuel. What I don’t understand is they had Rossi right there. They could have just asked Rossi to show them how they do it. This is assuming that the fuel is part of the Rossi IP in the agreement.

      • The agreement sets up a mechanism for acceptance or failure. If the report indicates success then they have to pay up. Not doing so says they don’t believe the report they paid half for, which is strange.

        They may be doing this because they can’t replicate on their own and think they are being taken to the cleaners?

        Or doing so for ulterior motives?

        • Ged

          When they file the defense to Rossi’s suit, we should learn a lot more. Hopefully this’ll happen soon.

        • LuFong

          Yes that’s what I think. But it’s a big mystery to me why they could not replicate in-house. I would certainly want to be able to do that and the contract looks like it’s required. It seems that Rossi would have been at their disposal to guide them through the process.

          I have to admit I’m not entirely surprised that they could not replicate in-house. Rossi may not have disclosed this secret.

          • LilyLover

            The thing is Rossi only taught them the low Temp ECat. They wanted Hot Cat and now want ECatX, else no money to Rossi. Bad boys.

          • SG

            But they had a license for all of those improvements. Mr. Rossi even said the EcatX was covered by the IH agreement. I don’t see this as a motivating factor to not pay the money to Rossi.

          • cashmemorz

            This would mean that IH did not do their due diligence regarding what the LENR receipe was before taking on AR as an employee or partner or licensor that AR is to them.

    • kdk

      I find it hard to believe that Woodford handed over $50 million or whatever to them w/o some due diligence…

      • SG

        Woodward stated publicly that they only made the investment after two years of due diligence.

  • Ged

    Got some apparent errors there.

    1. The customer is JMC, that is http://chemicals.matthey.com/ , as stated in the filing for the stock name, JMC, and also headquarters (UK). It was Vortex folks who were speculating it was a different company, but that does not fit the details of the filing, only Johnson Matthey does.

    2. According to the filing, IH agreed on Penon back during the 24h test way long ago–that is, he is not a compatriot of Rossi’s, but a dual agreed on person that IH also picked from the start. IH also agreed on all testing methodologies.

    We’ll see how this data evolves, but that is what is known right now.

    Edit: Well, data evolves fast! IH has finally spoken, looks like we can forget most of this stuff then. What fun!

  • Barbierir

    Is any journalist going to find and interview the owner of the factory where the test took place? A comment about his energy bill would be very welcome now

    • Michael W Wolf

      Yea, where is said reactor? Surely IH would not take a reactor that didn’t work. And it could be considered tampering with the evidence. Where that reactor is now is key. Will it disappear?

      • SG

        It is a fair point. Probably one of the reasons why Leonardo moved so quickly to file the suit. Tampering with evidence is a big no no.

      • Barbierir

        According to Rossi it’s still doing its work in the customer factory

        • NT

          Lets hope so as any judge would want the court to see that in real life operation doing what Rossi claims it does – proving LC and Rossi’s case…

    • Bob Tivnan

      The customer will likely be subpoenad to testify in the lawsuit. I doubt we will hear from them before then.

  • Reminder: when IH bought the E-Cat IP license they said this: “6. In addition, performance validation tests were conducted in the presence of IH personnel and certified by an independent expert.”

    So that’s one gate. That was Jan 2014. Shortly after positive results from ITR.

    Then they had someone (ERV Penon, assumed) test for 24 hours. Got a thumbs up and forked over $10M. That was early 2015 at the start of the test.

    Then they had Fabiani sittting in there with Rossi all day and giving glowing interviews about performance.

    Then they received a report that told them COP of 50 as a result of year long careful videotaped measurements.

    Then they refused to pay, got sued and just claimed it never worked at all.

    W…….. T……… F………

    • Ged

      When you put it that way, it is curiouser and curiouser. The 3 year statement really sticks out the most to me, as well as the nonspecific nature of their rebuttle. It seems a standard “nuh uh!” response, along with the obligatory “they were the ones who breached contract!” quip despite being the defendant.

      I hope IH files a defense soon. Then we’ll know all they have. But yes, their previous statements are clearly contradictory to there little press release.

    • Omega Z

      Then they had someone (ERV Penon, assumed) test for 24 hours. Got a thumbs up and forked over $10M.

      The test was in 2013.

  • Jonnyb

    I’m sure we were told that E-Cat units were made independent of Rossi, so they must of had the knowledge?

  • sam

    I will tune in tomorrow for the next
    episode of this soap opera Frank.
    At least your ratings should increase
    because of all of this.

  • Josh G

    Well, IH and Rossi hired him to do the 24-hour validation prior to IH’s investment in Rossi’s technology. So they appear to have as much of a prior relationship with IH as they do with Rossi, and that relationship is a business one. But the way you state it makes it sound like he and Rossi are old buddies or something. Very misleading.

  • Andreas Moraitis

    Basically, there are two possibilities: Either Rossi’s plant worked as defined in the contract, or it didn’t. In the first case, IH could claim that Rossi withheld information which would have been necessary to replicate the effect in their own laboratories. However, in the second case they might have problems to defend their position. According to #65 of the suit IH agreed with the test protocol. Provided that this information is correct and the protocol was erroneous, it would have been their mistake to accept it. I guess they had only a chance if they prove that the test was not carried out exactly as described, or that the report has been manipulated. So we have the paradoxical situation that Rossi could lose the litigation if his technology works, but succeed in the opposite case.

    • Andreas Moraitis

      Wrong thread, sorry.

  • Julio Ruben Vazquez Turnes

    I see something fishy here and we are with two options. It works – then IH lies. It doesnt work – then Rossi lies.

    According to all the data, to me, see that Rossi lies is doubtful. No one would pay 10 million without proper research. Also the fundings from Cherokee support my theory.

    But there is something that came to my mind if we add all the facts.
    IH filled a patent – No one would fill a patent of something that doesnt work.
    Rossi said that they broke the License Agreement giving info to a rival and as far as we know that could be true.

    So, i want to add one thing . Just a few days after the test finished, Arabia Saudi, wrote that they would create a fund for their oil.
    What if IH received a big sum from a petrol company to stall the process until they get rid of their oil.

    The easiest way to do that is what they did if we trust Rossi. Transfer the information to another company. Claim that it doesnt work. Then after the fund is created and sold the oil company would give them a huge sum of money to be the Licensess of the technology to start to use it.

    It may be a single coincidence but yesterday I talk with a cousin of mine wich works in forex and told me that they are all aware of this technology since months ago even they didnt have so much info. So it seems that the market is really reflecting the result of a viable technology.

    To me there are too much hints to point that way, and to stall the technology they need Rossi out of the game because he wants to launch the technology right now..

    • Omega Z

      “and we are with two options. It works – then IH lies. It doesnt work – then Rossi lies.”

      Option 3 to include with your 2nd option.
      It doesn’t work – then IH also lied to Woodford Investment funds to obtain $50/$60 million in investments..

    • Anon2012_2014

      Third option:

      It works, just the COP is too low to be firmly above the payoff threshold which I believe was reduced to 2.6x in the third amendment to the agreement (for a proportional payout). If IH measured a COP of 1.7 but the ERV measured 2.7, there would be enough cause for IH to challenge the ERVs reading and get a better ERV (i.e. a national lab) to do the testing. This would be particularly true if IH was given restricted access to the Doral warehouse. A lot of money is at stake so why should IH go with a Lugano level measurement that is not incontrovertible.

  • Omega Z

    DGT arrangement fell apart because they couldn’t come up with the money.
    Possibly IH is also short of the $89 Million…

    • Jonnyb

      Does the £50 million Woodford gave not equate roughly to $89m? O.K. a bit short but close.

      • Omega Z

        I believe it was $50 Million or a little more.
        A few years ago, Darden had trouble coming up with $20 million in an ongoing project. He was bailed out by Donald Trump. That’s the problem with brown field projects. You can sink a ton of money in them real quick and take many years to get any back out. Many are at risk of negative returns.

        Back in time I looked this up because the buzz about $2 Billion in Cherokee assets. Assets being the key word. Not cash

  • Jonnyb

    Hi Guest, Yeh Andrea mentions this also in his reply posted on E-Cat world today. IH have made units independently. Personally I believe him.

    • Eyedoc

      But the EcatX is might be the problem….developed while under contract

  • Eyedoc

    I think you have nailed it….especially if the contract says “current” IP (which will include the EcatX) and also AR was under contract at the time of the X development.
