An article by Ric Werme at the German site No Trick Zone gives a very nice summary and analysis of the most important and interesting findings of the recently published E-Cat test report. He makes some interesting observations about it including the following points:
- The COP increased when input was increased; 100 W extra input resulted in 700 W extra output.
- The measurements suggest “the catalyst is LiAlH4 which releases monoatomic hydrogen when it is heated, fitting the speculation about the catalyst’s role”.
All in all, this is a great, maybe historic, result. There has been plenty of evidence that the E-Cat works, but Rossi has always been directly involved.
Now we have an independent team working in their own space and with tools from their universities. They see it work and present multiple lines of evidence confirming it is a nuclear process.
That there is no explanation for the process is annoying, but won’t block commercialization of the E-Cat. The shouting isn’t over, the science has barely begun, but we may be at the start of civilization’s next major energy source.
