While we are still largely in the dark about exactly what the E-Cat X is, Andrea Rossi seems to be getting more excited about it.
A reader asked him on the Journal of Nuclear Physics today how the E-Cat X was performing and Rossi responded:
Is operating and still very promising. Now is going well since close to one month, so we are beginning to be very interested.
Joseph Fine followed up with a question about the power output of the E-Cat X and the power density in comparison to the 1MW plant, which is made up of four 250 kW low temperature E-Cat reactors.
Rossi responded: “The modules will be of 1 kW. The density of power should be doubled at the least”
Recently Rossi announced that future plans for E-Cat development would include building plants comprised of multiple E-Cat X modules, so it seems that for now at least, each of those modules will be 1 kW units. It’s sounding more and more like Rossi and Co. are putting their future development plans into the E-Cat X. But still we really don’t know what it is, or how it differs from the other E-Cats they have worked on.
