I think most readers here are wondering what is going on now in Andrea Rossi’s lab. We have been told by him that there will not be a presentation this year, but possibly in the first quarter of 2021.

A few weeks ago you said you possibly have a solution to make the Ecat more reliable.
Have you made any progress in the reliability or are you still working on that?
Thanks, kind regards, Gerard

I do not see problems we cannot resolve. We are preparing something really important. The work is hard, the important is to stay calm.
And in response to a question from Xavier Pitz about what level the E-Cat has reached on a scale of “too easy” to “insane”, one year after announcing it, Rossi replied, “The answer is: “insane”. And extremely expensive.”
