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,

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.

From Independent eCat News:

“In various comments following the publication of the HotCat paper on arxiv, it was evident that more checks were made to counter misdirection and error than formally included there. Broad hints were made that the paper could be updated to include more information. Arguably the primary area for concern among critics was the potential for sneaking illicit power into the input. I guess, with that in mind, some details of the power supply measurements have been clarified along with assurances that the control box and HotCat support frame were examined to ensure no hidden feeds could pass by these routes. ”

“We are seeing an exponential increase in energy consumption, and this phenomenon must be stopped, as unsustainable from both the thermodynamic and environmental points of view,”   stated Senator Domenico Scilipoti, regarding the parliamentary investigation presented to the Senate.

“From the results obtained from tests carried out by an independent international team of researchers, on the heat generator E-Cat (energy catalyzer) has emerged the existence of a new source of clean and low-cost energy, commercially exploitable in a very short time.”


Senator Scilipoti:

“No to oil and coal, yes to testing of LENR”  “This new source of energy uses stable isotopes of nickel and produces no hazardous or radioactive waste. The engineering and the subsequent adoption of these technologies would allow the country to become an exporter of electricity at low cost, and would free Italy from dependence on supplies of oil, coal and other purchases of electricity, with huge financial and environmental benefits . ”

Original article in Italian

Numerologically speaking, Rossi must be the number 8. “The 8 balances the material and immaterial worlds. At its best, it is as spiritual as it is materialistic. The spiritual side of the 8 is practical, realistic and intelligent. It knows the difference between make-believe and genuine spiritual realizations. On the material plane, it is focused on results, often in the form of money, yet does not care much about money for the sake of money. It is not greedy, it sees money as a tool, not an end-result. It is generous and willing to take risks. People with strong 8s in their charts often make and lose fortunes a couple of times during their life. They never consider bankruptcy a reason to slow down or feel sorry, but, rather, come out stronger and more success-oriented than before.”

Today I was made aware of a threat to the inventor’s life when he posted the following on his blog,

We are, obviously, under attack, as usually after a successful test, but this time the level of threat has been raised: not being able to attack under a scientific and/or technological point of view the Third Party Indipendent Test, some are clearly inviting to kill me ( if so, at last I will be able to rest, after working 16 hours per day!), others insulting, but there is one that is very disturbing: a blog, which our intelligence has discovered to be of the same snake that is gently inviting to kill ( sic) me, has written that there are actions pending upon me in Court: this is totally false. Our attorneys tried to sue the author of this false statement, but it turned out that the author is anonimous, just a false address of a nickname, strangely originated from the same source of the website that invites to kill me and suggests how to. In any case, I declare and swear that it is totally false that there are any actions in Court pending against me. Of course we will search the evidence to make a REAL action in Court against the snake that has put in the web this false information.
To know exactly what happened to me in past ( I mean 15- 20 years ago) please go to

Andrea Rossi

I felt compelled to correspond immediately thereafter.

Dear Andrea,

When skepticism becomes irrational, coercive and pathological it descends to the level of
requiring serious corrective action. As I have read some of the commentary regarding the 3rd
party report, I have to admit to a chuckle or two. One critique actually misinterpreted the
credentials of one of the Swedish scientists, and claimed he was a veterinarian! After
successful validation, we here in Brooklyn are very happy for your E-Cat success and its
progress in aiding the world. I hope that the goon(s) which have been unable to adequately
critique the test results, and have resorted to physical threats, find their way to the nearest
mental institution to receive the care they are desperately in need of!

Best wishes,


My reference of the veterinarian came from a May 24, 2013 article which was completely on point,

by Mark Gibbs in Forbes titled,

The E-Cat Testing Team, Real or Ringers? 


Here is my response from Dr. Rossi:

May 25th, 2013 at 1:14 PM
Dear Gerard:
Really there is an imbecile that said that one of the professors is a veterinarian ???
Ha,ha,ha! This is evidence of the fact that they cannot find anything serious, and this is the
best possible “peer reviewing”! Obviously all the examiners are Physic Professors or Physic
Researchers, all of them are Doctors in Physics. Same thing the reviewers listed in the
Thank you.
I agree with your point.
Warm Regards, Andrea Rossi

I find it uniquely refreshing how AR responds personally to everyone who writes to him at his blog, sometimes within minutes.



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

Property of Andrea Rossi

Property of Andrea Rossi


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.

Indication of anomalous heat energy production in a reactor device

(Submitted on 16 May 2013)


An experimental investigation of possible anomalous heat production in a special type of reactor tube named E-Cat HT is carried out. The reactor tube is charged with a small amount of hydrogen loaded nickel powder plus some additives. The reaction is primarily initiated by heat from resistor coils inside the reactor tube. Measurement of the produced heat was performed with high-resolution thermal imaging cameras, recording data every second from the hot reactor tube. The measurements of electrical power input were performed with a large bandwidth three-phase power analyzer. Data were collected in two experimental runs lasting 96 and 116 hours, respectively. An anomalous heat production was indicated in both experiments. The 116-hour experiment also included a calibration of the experimental set-up without the active charge present in the E-Cat HT. In this case, no extra heat was generated beyond the expected heat from the electric input. Computed volumetric and gravimetric energy densities were found to be far above those of any known chemical source. Even by the most conservative assumptions as to the errors in the measurements, the result is still one order of magnitude greater than conventional energy.

Energy Revolution is Scheduled for Summer

Energy Revolution is scheduled for summer

Translation from Russian by Google

Scientists who study the process called “cold nuclear transmutation,” warn before the great energy revolution there were only two months. Once in the middle of this year to go mass market devices called heat generators Rossi (created in honor of their engineer Andrea Rossi), the world will never be the same again.

This summer, the market should reach unusual generators for the production of cheap energy. This means that the energy familiar to us, based on hydrocarbons and nuclear reactors thing of the past. About that, what we all need to be prepared, says a senior researcher at the Institute of Terrestrial Magnetism, Ionosphere and Radio Wave Propagation, Russian Academy of Sciences, the candidate of physical and mathematical sciences, nuclear physicist Yuri Bazhutov.

– Yuri, you – as the deputy chairman of the Russian Coordination Council on Cold Nuclear Transmutation and permanent organizer of annual conferences on this subject – in his speeches have repeatedly stated that we are on the threshold of the “great energy revolution.” Please explain what you mean?

– Indeed, the information on the daily basis. All over the world there is a strong boom in connection with the results that have already received two years ago in Bologna (Italy) Andrea Rossi with Sergio Focardi in the area, as they were called, cold fusion.

But this is an old name that was given to the founders of this trend – the Anglo-Americans Fleischmann and Pons his disciple. They have been doing this 10 years back to back. And 20 years ago – March 23, 1989 – held a press conference at which stated that they had obtained great results, a new phenomenon, which they called cold nuclear fusion.

But the name they are very much mistaken, because they were not physicists, especially nuclear scientists. They were professional electrochemists. Therefore, in a simple experiment, they got an electrolytic cell heat output is 4 times larger than the one they have pledged. Instead they got one watt total power of 4 watts.

See also: thermonuclear reactions tamed?

It was the nuclear processes. But they were so incomprehensible nuclear physicist, the first ones that were against it. The fact that scientists discovered a new mechanism for energy completely contradicts the traditional nuclear fusion. As a result, at first was a big boom, the application for the new energy industry, saying that in just a few years will have kilowatts of output, more megawatts. In addition, the nuclear energy is very clean, as all nuclear products has significantly less than it should be.

But just two months later termoyaderschiki them completely, “peck”, saying that under the standard concepts of the physics of nuclear fusion is no cold fusion can not be. A main argument was this: if Fleischmann and Pons in cold fusion got this energy output, then they would have a flux of neutrons that would end up for them with a lethal dose of radiation.

But in spite of such a powerful wave of rejection, “the genie” out of the bottle has been released. And in thousands of laboratories around the world have begun to do this. But only around a hundred of them showed positive results. Even the largest nuclear centers failed to repeat the reaction, so that the negative attitude to the problem persisted.

However, among the optimists were 20 years of research, conferences were held. We in Russia have become one of the first Russian to conduct the conference, and I’ve already spent 20 of the annual Russian Conference on Cold Nuclear Transmutation (Cold Nuclear Transmutation), including international in 2007. We have been and still remains a powerful potential in nuclear physics, so Russian scientists were among the leaders of this movement. And as Americans, Japanese and Italians.

Fleischmann and Pons supported a powerful commercial entity – Toyota. Toshiba itself gave them tens of millions of dollars and built in Nice, a special center for research in the hope that in a few years they will have a commercial version. But, unfortunately, they did not understand the correct mechanism of this phenomenon, unleash his discovery failed. Other researchers (Paterson, Arata, etc) are not able to break a kilowatt.

– And then there is the Italian Rossi. He is also a nuclear physicist?

– No, he was an engineer and inventor. But he believed in this direction. The fact is that in Italy on the topic worked Piantelli scientist who assembled a team from different universities. And they worked together on a very simple mechanism of this phenomenon. He took a metal powder such as nickel, filling them tube, air is pumped out from there, ran the hydrogen, is heated and creates more energy output. But again, until he reached a kilowatt could not only tens of watts.

See also: Cold fusion is still possible?

Rossi’s merit lies in the fact that he saw it as a mechanism for optimal commercial manifestation. He believed in it so much that persuaded his wife to sell the house for two million euros, which he put into the research. Invited Professor Sergio Focardi of the University of Bologna, who had previously worked with Piantelli. And together they literally three years have created a cell that already gave at the output 12 kilowatts of power.

Two years ago, 15 January 2011. They announced this at a press conference in Bologna. Among those present was one investor who has never admitted who he was and where. But he said to them: If you make a megawatt installation, then I’ll buy it for the money you spent on this research – that is two million.

Just six months later Rossi said that they have created such a setup. And at a press conference on October 28, 2011, he showed her. This he called the heat source energy catalyst – E-cat. The result was quite impressive. The reactor is the size of a van, worked for more than five hours of battery life with a power output of 0.5 MW. In this case no external power for its operation after startup is not required. The investor bought it.

After that, Rossi decided to develop systems for general consumers. Every man of the house or villa has a need for such a heater. And he created a system the size of a small suitcase, which summarizes (screwed) external pipe heating system. In the suitcase there is a small cartridge with a tube of nickel powder and hydrogen – is ready. You just need to press the button. The system heats up the battery on the battery, and then starts to produce energy at a rate of 10-20 kilowatts.

– That is, that this “suitcase” to work, you just have to connect a normal battery?

– Yes, battery. Heat generator should just run, and then he works himself without additional energy. Last year, Rossi said that opens plant in Florida – the Americans began to actively support him: he was already a U.S. patent after the Italian. After this statement to him a queue of those wishing to purchase a generator. It will cost just $ 500, the warranty for six months. And six months later come to the company and for $ 10 you change the cartridge.

– So, paying a one time $ 500, you can no longer spend a dime to heat the whole house?

– That’s right. Rossi promised late last year to start their release, but did not. Now promises to fly. I think that by the end of the year he will release them. The account goes on for months. He recently made a statement that he megavattnik who bought the first buyer, he worked for eight thousand hours – 10 months. With excess capacity by six times.

– Is it possible to this “briefcase” to connect other devices? Refrigerator, for example?

– This is the other problem. There are any converters that can convert it into electricity. While fundamentally solved only heat problem.

– But it does mean that with the advent of such a cheap energy available to all, familiar to us oil and gas will not wanted? And in Russia, something is being done in this direction?

– We have no investors. We in Russia are used to catch up and overtake. Remember the slogan, “catch up with and surpass America”? We had about 20 independent groups in Russia who worked on the enthusiasm. That is, we got the money for one, and in parallel with this yet doing another.

Involvement in this area – met regularly at conferences. Also, monthly seminar was held in People’s Friendship University (every last Thursday of the month), which involved, and physics, and chemistry. Because it really is a phenomenon on the intersection of science. Russian scientists have given to the process name – “Cold Nuclear Transmutation.”

We are not as rich as in the West, and we do not have houses that can be sold. And do they have commercials with great interest relates to investments in science. Our business – net consumers, fakirs an hour. Do not think about the future.

I sent in the “Rosneft” application, in which he explained that when this trend will seriously develop your whole business will collapse. And the urgent need to find a replacement. Then it will be easy to change from one “train” on the other. No, do not understand. Sit and wait. Invest in pipelines, which then will be worthless. Will bankrupt.

And in the U.S. Now the problem is isolated financing the Pentagon and the Department of Energy. And meanwhile, NASA funded the establishment of this principle of rocket engines. We also had the idea 20 years ago, but we were then hacked her.

– If tomorrow comes to you the investor with money, how long can be a real result?

– I think that in three years we will. Last year at the facility, similar to Rossi’s E-cat, with nuclear diagnostics we got the maximum yield of neutrons in the world (up to 500 000 per session). These results I presented in July 2012. in Korea at the 17th International Conference on Cold Nuclear Transmutation.

Even better experimental results, we have the process of stimulation of Cold Nuclear Transmutation plasma electrolysis, with whom I have been working for more than 15 years. Here we have not only a demonstration of multiple nuclear Cold Nuclear Transmutation of products, but also a significant excess heat output, reaching up to 500%.

By the way, I was trying to commercial development of this trend – under Gorbachev. While in science were very active investment. Then, under the direction of this project we have developed and begun to look for an investor. We had about a dozen potential investors. We chose one of them and signed him to a seven million dollars for seven years.

And then came the Yeltsin appointed Prime Minister Gaidar. And Gaydar by the first decree abolished the preferential tax treatment of investments in science. And investors just walked into a science, thanks to government support in the form of tax benefits. And everything came crashing down. In sports, they left no tax breaks, so the sport we still have more. A science investment collapsed. Then as soon collapsed and fiscal science.

So we are working on their old stocks – on the excellent education that is received during the Soviet era. And even more instruments of those times still use – they are very robust making. Another five years we will work, and when we die out, after we have no one to catch up.

– And this generator is not dangerous to use?

– In fact, although the mechanism is nuclear, but very clean. Nuclear power plants are more dangerous because there is an accumulation of nuclear waste. By the way, my model Erzion catalysis not only solves the problem of energy, it also turns nuclear waste into stable.

Now they are buried under the ground in special containers. They tried to send into space, but the rockets were falling and it was dangerous. But in all the land, too, from time to time. Could be worse than Chernobyl. Nuclear plants will finish his term and will also be closed, that’s when this new energy will appear. While this has little to say. But as soon as the generators for the production of cheap energy is available, for them to instantly become known to all. In any case, this process can not be stopped.

– And when they are available, they can be copied?

– So Rossi and prevented anyone from our community to itself for testing. He was terribly afraid of competition and gives the very dosed. Now it has to turn a million – a record for its generators. And there enlisted one of our colleagues – a physicist from the United States.

In fact, there is always some nuances that can be concealed. So “on the knee” is not tampered with. You just have to be at a level not to buy technology then, and do themselves – not worse, but better.

According to the March 10, 2013 report by 

Dr. Frank Lichtenberg / Physicist – ETH/Zurich:

The ECAT technology is based on Low Energy Nuclear Reactions (LENR). ECAT reactors generate a large amount of heat energy when small amounts of hydrogen, special nickel powder and an undisclosed material are combined. About 50 g nickel are able to generate a permanent power of 10 kW for 6 months. About 1 percent of the annual world nickel production would be sufficient to provide the energy needs of mankind. This high efficiency results from nuclear reactions whose involved nuclear forces / strong interactions yield much more energy compared to chemical reactions, such as combustion processes, which are based on electromagnetic forces / interactions. However, in contrast to conventional nuclear technologies, the ECAT reactors are environmentally friendly because they do not involve radioactive materials, do not produce radioactive waste, and weak gamma rays can easily be shielded. Furthermore, they do not produce any exhaust gases.

ECAT power plants were already produced, tested, certified and represent presently the first
commercially available LENR-based energy technology. Every 6 months it is necessary to
replace the relatively small amounts of nickel and hydrogen. The nickel is largely recyclable.

The first-generation ECAT is offered as 1 MW power plant. It generates heat energy in form of hot water with a temperature up to 120 °C. It is appropriate for industrial heating and cooling applications. Its COP is 6, i.e. the generated heat energy is 6 times higher than the electric energy which is required to operate the ECAT power plant (COP = Coefficient of Performance). Several of such power plants run failure-free since February 2012. The present price of a 1 MW power plant is 1,5 Mio. USD and it pays itself off after about 4 years.

The second-generation ECAT, also called high temperature ECAT or Hot-ECAT, is offered as a 10 MW power plant. It generates heat energy in form of hot water with a temperature above 120 °C or high temperature steam. It is appropriate for industrial heating applications or an efficient conversion into electricity. Its COP is also 6. The first putting into operation of a power plant which generates electricity at the location of a customer is scheduled for April 2013.

The commercial availability of small 10 kW home units, which can be added to already existing heating systems, is scheduled for 2015.
