Absolutely yes: our USA Partner has all the know how, with the industrial secrets. I am no more indispensable: just useful for the future evolution on which I am now working in the USA.
Warm Regards,
A.R.

This means that inventor Andrea Rossi has already shared his secret catalyst with his secret US Partner.  If this is not mainstream news by the end of Summer 2013…  

The potential implication of this clean, comparatively cost-less technology as a solution to the catastrophic energy situation now facing the world is immensely important.

Rossi Should Not Reveal The Catalyst, Until Intellectual Property Rights Are Protected

I have an interest in science, but as I am not a scientist, I care much less about understanding the physics of why the E-Cat device works than whether it produces heat or not.  Instinctively, I have had a positive opinion of the E-Cat since first hearing about the device in January, 2011.  After the March 2013 independent tests by accredited scientists obtained positive results, I have no doubt that it works, and that there has never been anything hidden under a deceptive sleeve.  Eventually, the world will understand the science behind the anomalous heat energy production of the E-Cat  device, but it seems that the only evidence that will allay skeptical criticism  is revelation of the secret catalyzing agent.  This undoubtedly has to be considered the intellectual property of Andrea Rossi and must be legally protected before divulgence.

I dislike the current Catch-22, and am openly impatient for the progression of what could be an immensely beneficial, clean energy technology for the good of the entire planet.

The new eCat.com has apparently begun taking orders for the 1MW plant and pre-orders for the 5 kilowatt Home unit.

ECAT.com – Andrea Rossi’s Energy Catalyzer, E-Cat

Cold fusion is a subject that has been debated for many years, but what used to be a discussion about research has now moved on to the next level where products based on cold fusion technology are at the centre. Many consider the term LENR (Low Energy Nuclear Reaction) to be a more accurate description of the physical reaction which is producing the excess energy observed by a large number of independent researchers and scientists.

Cold fusion, or LENR, has been recognized by the scientific community for decades, but only now has a continuous and stable output of several kilowatts been successfully generated. Andrea Rossi is the man behind the final leap. It took him almost 18 years to develop the Energy Catalyzer (E-CAT), a device which produces excess heat and which will be the core of a new product range in the energy sector. With a completely green technology leaving neither toxic nor radioactive waste, Rossi’s ECAT has the potential to be the solution to the global energy problem. During 2011/2012, ECAT.com will collect pre-orders and provide answers to inquires from potential customers. Due to the high expected demand for ECAT products, orders will be put on a waiting list and delivery is scheduled for 2012 (depending on product).

ECAT Home Units

Home ECAT units will not be available until 2012-2013 due to rigid testing, certification and regulation processes. The 3D-rendering below is a hypothetical image what it could look like for domestic use.

If you are interested in knowing more about this device for your home, please use our contact form to the right to sign up for the pre-order list. The sign-up is non-binding which means that you will be prioritized for delivery once the product is rolled out – but you are in no way committed to buy the product.

Professore emerito del dipartimento di Fisica dell’Università di Bologna, ha contribuito alla costruzione della macchina E-Cat, macchina che produce energia elettrica con un processo fisico-chimico ancora sconosciuto.

Preside fino al 1990 della facoltà di scienze matematiche, fisiche e naturali dell’Alma Mater, ha poi diretto la sezione di Bologna dell’Istituto nazionale di fisica nucleare.
Ha concentrato i suoi studi scientifici sulla fusione fredda con reattori Nichel-Idrogeno ed ha collaborato con Andrea Rossi per la realizzazione dell’ E-Cat, un meccanismo per la fusione nucleare a freddo

In a post today in the Fox News  Science – SCITECH section, the mainstream media has finally decided to report on the Andrea Rossi energy catalyzer:
Cold Fusion Experiment: Major Success or Complex Hoax?

By John Brandon
Published November 02, 2011

A physicist in Italy claims to have demonstrated a new type of power plant that provides safe, cheap and virtually unlimited nuclear power to the world, without fossil fuels or radiation concerns.

The only hitch: Scientists say the method — cold fusion — is patently impossible. They say it defies the laws of physics.

Andrea Rossi doesn’t seem to care. He told FoxNews.com that his new device takes in nickel and hydrogen and fuses them in a low-grade nuclear reaction that essentially spits out sheer power, validating the strange science.

UPDATED. Half a megawatt thermal power in self sustained mode, for over five hours. That’s what Andrea Rossi obtained with his E-cat plant on Friday, according to his customer. The question now is who the customer was.

(Swedish version here).

At about quarter past ten on Friday October 28, the test of Andrea Rossi’s heat plant, potentially producing one megawatt, was initiated in an industrial hangar in Bologna.

The plant consisted of more than 100 ‘energy catalyzers’ – Rossi’s invention that possibly produces heat from a hitherto unknown nuclear reaction – connected in parallel.

Already in January 2011 when the E-cat was demonstrated publicly for the first time before a group of invited scientists and journalists in Bologna, Rossi promised the launch of a one megawatt plant in October.

The test was supposed to be performed together with the Greek company Defkalion, and later, after a breach of contract in August, in the US.  Finally, as the US agreement was never put in place, the test was performed in Bologna under the control of a yet unknown customer to Rossi.

According to the customer’s controller, Domenico Fioravanti, the plant released 2,635 kWh during five and a half hours of self sustained mode, which is equivalent to an average power of 479 kilowatts – just under half the promised power of one megawatt.

Rossi explained this with the customer’s priority to achieve self sustained mode, which supposedly makes the process more difficult to control than when electrical power is supplied to support the reaction.

“We had to decrease the power during self sustained mode as the temperature rose too much”, Rossi said after the test.

Neither Ny Teknik nor any other of the guests had any possibility to check the measurements made. The invitees could only observe the plant in operation for a few brief moments.

Assuming that the report is correct (the report can be downloaded here, the temperature data here), a substantial amount of energy was released, which is difficult to explain by anything other than heat being developed inside the E-cat, even if you subtract the power input during pre-heating.

UPDATE: There are two minor errors in the report. See below.

According to the report the test was approved and the plant would now be transported to the customer where it supposedly will be part of an agreement on further tests in order to develop the technology.

It remains unclear who the customer is. Rossi has only indicated that it belongs to a particular category of organizations. One possibility is that it’s a military organization given that the title of the controller Fioravanti in the report is “colonel”, however, scored out with a pen.

Rossi stated that an agreed contract research at the University of Bologna can now be initiated and that discussions on collaboration with Uppsala University can get started.

There’s still no clear indication of when a test performed by independent experts can be done, although this is still what both readers of Ny Teknik and most experts Ny Teknik has spoken to demand.

UPDATE: David Roberson who made one of three analyses that Ny Teknik published last week on the October 6 test , has made an updated analysis here, which he claims contains proof that the E-cat generated a large amount of excess energy.
Also Horace Heffner’s analysis has been updated.

UPDATE 2: There are two minor errors in the customer’s report:
1. The weight of the hydrogen bottle should be in grams, not kg as indicated.
2. The indicated flow rate of the pumps at the end of the report should be 350 kg/hour, not 750 kg/hour, giving a total of 700 kg/h, not 1,500 kg/h, for the two pumps.
(The measured average flow rate of 675.6 l/h in the first part of the report should be correct).

October 28th was the date many of us were waiting for. On that date, Andrea Rossi would demonstrate his 1MW Energy Catalyzer plant. The device runs on powdered nickel and pressurized hydrogen, in an unknown combination, which can output great quantities of heat through some type of nuclear, cold-fusion reaction.

The device produces no waste, does not emit harmful radiation or any other toxic polluting elements into the environment. Once again, the famous E-cat device has been demonstrated and tested. This time though, as a pre-sale demonstration for an undisclosed client. The test was successful. The secret client has accepted delivery.

The video below is of Andrea Rossi, reporting his results immediately after the successful demonstration.  (In Italian and English)
