Thanks to Bernie Koppenhofer for finding the following:
Today, August 27, 2015, Industrial Heat, LLC has filed an International Patent for: ENERGY-PRODUCING REACTION DEVICES, SYSTEMS AND RELATED METHODS
Link is here: https://patentscope.wipo.int/search/en/detail.jsf?docId=WO2015127263&recNum=1&maxRec=&office=&prevFilter=&sortOption=&queryString=&tab=PCTDescription
Inventors are listed as Andrea Rossi and Thomas Barker Dameron.
The abstract reads: “A reactor device includes a reaction chamber; one or more thermal units in thermal communication with the reaction chamber configured to transfer thermal energy to the reaction chamber; and a refractory layer between the reaction chamber and the one or more thermal units.”
This one, unlike the recently approved Rossi patent is very extensive, and will take some time to go through. More details will be added here as information is digested.
I guess this will put an end to the rumor that Industrial Heat is no longer interested in the E-Cat!
