E-Cat Testing and Presentation Status

We’re now into January, and on the topic of the E-Cat, I think the question on most people’s mind is what’s going on with the testing of the E-Cat SKL that Andrea Rossi said would take place this month, and when the projected Stockholm conference will take place. Steven Karels asked about this on the Journal of Nuclear Physics today:

Dear Andrea Rossi,

1. Given your plans for a presentation of the SKL next month, are SKLs already undergoing testing by the independent evaluator?
2. Are you still planning a Feb 2020 presentation

Steven N. Karels:
1 confidential
2 so far, yes
Warm Regards,

Rossi’s first answer shows we aren’t going to be given any information about the testing until it is completed. I think the timing of the presentation is going to depend on how the testing goes, and how long it takes. Rossi has said that if the testing is negative that there won’t be a presentation.

So all we can do is just stand by and wait. If a presentation is announced then I think that is a good indication that the testing has gone well. It’s possible that a report will be issued before a presentation is announced, but Rossi has said he did not know if that would be the case.
