In this Q&A on the Journal of Nuclear Physics, Andrea Rossi states again that the current E-Cat SKL reactor is not based on LENR, but he does not deny that old versions of the E-Cat were LENR systems.

Dear Dr. Rossi,
You told that the Rossi effect is not a LENR based system. Is this also true for your previous reactors? Does this mean that there were no transmutations and no thermalisation of radiation? And what about the Lugano test reports? Does it also mean that the experiments of Prof. Parkomov are completely different from yours? Or are there crucial links with your effect and LENR, both still use nickel, hydrogen… This is confusing, can you explain?

What I meant is that the Ecat SKL does not belong to the field of the LENR. Our theoretical hypothesis has changed, due to the evolution of the Ecat and to the completely different mechanisms that have been born . What we thought in past was coherent with what we experimented and did in past.
We made an enormous work in these last two years, the Ecat SKL has the roots in what we made in past as well as an electric car like the last model of the Mercedes AMC has roots in the Mercedes Benz of 1930. The amount of work we made is enormous, we never stopped a single day to work very hard in our laboratories and every single day we added knowledge, working, studying and experimenting in laboratory and on the working plants. We accumulated thousands of pages of reports and calculations. Read the first paper I wrote with Prof Sergio Focardi in 2010 and compare it to my last paper
and you will get an idea of what happened. This is not confusion: this is evolution with revolutionary peaks.
I hear that many say if we did not yet make a presentation of a model for sale in ten years, means we have nothing. Who says so has not the slightest idea on the monumental work we made and we are making.
He states here that the whole theoretical hypothesis has changed, and is apparently guiding the development of improved working systems quite well. Maybe the ‘revolutionary peaks’ he describes were insights or breakthroughs that opened a new door of understanding, and perhaps LENR is not what at first appearance what it appeared to be.
