NEWS FROM ICCF-
At the gala dinner at Sendai it was announced that the next ICCF21 will take place in June 2018 at Raleigh (North Caroline) organized by Industrial Heat. In May 2017 it will be organized a workshop at Sienna in Italy.
Having Industrial heat organizing the conference certainly indicates that despite their conflicts with, and reservations about Andrea Rossi and the E-Cat, they are positive about the field of LENR and committed to operating in the field for quite some time to come.
I think we can safely guess that Rossi will not be attending, but then he never does go these meetings. If the E-Cat hits the market before the conference takes place then I would expect the flavor of the meeting would be quite different than ICCF meetings have been to date, and it would put IH in an interesting position. It would be hard to deny the reality of the E-Cat if it is obviously working in a commercial environment. On the other hand, if the E-Cat has still not emerged by then, Industrial Heat could be seen as a company to spearhead continued efforts in LENR.
We’ll have to see how things stand 20 months from now.
