As if he did not need one more thing to work on, Andrea Rossi has stated that his team is now working on a new invention to help him make the most of his E-Cat. Here are some comments on the Journal of Nuclear Physics about it:

Dr Andrea Rossi,
Have you resolved the problem of the heat exchange with a so high energy density as in the Ecat SK?
All the best,

Yes, we have invented a fantastic system, now to be tested. If it works, it gives close to 100% efficiency of exchange to produce steam.
I am not sure whether this means that the Gas Turbine invention has fallen out of favor for the time being, as this would be another major project for him to focus on. Note that Rossi is here talking about producing steam, not hot air, which would require a steam turbine if they are wanting to generate electricity with the E-Cat SK.
Rossi says that this system is not yet built; they plan to carry out tests in August.
