There is a growing amount of interest in Andrea Rossi’s E-Cat technology, and fortunately for those who are following this technological story, Mr. Rossi continues to answer questions from the public at his web site, The Journal of Nuclear Physics. Often the same questions are asked repeatedly, and Rossi patiently provides the same answers — but sometimes new snippets of information are given which can help shed a little more light about the the E-Cat.
Here are some recent comments from Rossi that might be of interest:
“It is true that Leonardo Corp has given the commercial License to Ampenergo to sell his products in America.”
“October will be the date in which our first industrial plant will go in operation. We will not reveal any industrial secret, obviously. I do not think we have reason to reveal our industrial secret,”
“The tests we will make in Greece starting presumably around July will be confidential tests of the first clusters of modules of the 1 MW plant which will go in operation in October. “
“Sterling engine is not fit for us: it needs over 700 Celsius degrees.” (Rossi has previously said his maximum temperature is 550 Celcius)
“Gamma rays have regularly been measured by us.”
“Analysis of powders are the evidence of the transmutation.”
“Beta decay has nothing to do with my process, Widom Larsen theory has nothing to do with my process”.
“The visits to the 1 MW plant will be reserved to a restrict number of persons.”
“Presently, we are making a contract with the University of Bologna to develope R&D for the technology related to my patent. We will ask to the University of Uppsala to participate: I will be in Uppsala for this reason in July.”
“We are stress testing all the modules that will compound the 1 MW plant we are manufacturing. In past we used a module to heat our offices ( please see the Focardi-Rossi paper on the Journal of Nuclear Physics): we made it to make R&D, but also saved thousands of euros to heat our offices.”
While no major new announcements are contained in Rossi’s comments, often you will find that in his answers are details that may not have been mentioned previously. It is fascinating and refreshing to have someone involved in breakthrough research to communicate so consistently and openly with the public (some topics are not discussed, however), and I think his approach is one of the reasons that people are paying attention and putting some trust in him — we are finding that the “warm regards” he extends to every commenter on his site are being reciprocated to a large extent.
