Rossi on NASA; Defkalion Speaks

A couple of interesting details have just come to light in the continuing E-Cat story.

Yesterday Steven B. Krivit posted on his New Energy Times site that a research team from NASA, along with representatives from an investment group visited Rossi’s Bologna premises in early September. Krivit writes “The team went there with an explicit agreement about test parameters and opportunities to observe and evaluate Rossi’s claims. They did not observe any positive results.”

Andrea Rossi posted a response today which included the following statement. Rossi apparently uses all caps when he wants to be emphatic.

“WARNING:
THE SNAKE HAS WRITTEN IN HIS BLOG THAT NASA MADE A NOT POSITIVE TEST WITH US. THIS IS TOTALLY FALSE. I AM BOUND FROM A CONFIDENTIALITY AGREEMENT AND I CANNOT GIVE DETAILED INFORMATION, BUT I CAN SAY THAT:
1- WE ARE IN CONTACT WITH NASA, WHO WANTS TO TEST OUR ECATS TO TEST THE POSSIBILITY TO MAKE THEM USEFUL FOR THEIR PURPOSES
2- NASA’S DENNIS.M.BUSHNELL HAS SAID PUBILCLY THAT NASA WILL BUY AN E-CAT AS SOON AS IT WILL BE POSSIBLE TO TEST IT
3- OUR RELATIONSHIP WITH NASA IS TOTALLY POSITIVE”

In another development, there has finally been some word from Defkalion Green Technologies. A few days ago they reopened the forum on their web site so that people could post questions and comments again. Today on this forum a representative of the company wrote:

“Defkalion GT group decited to re-open the forum due to expected announcements within the next weeks. Till then, we appreciate your interest and participation as well as all expressed questions, which are resonable, and they will be answered in due time.

Thank you for your attention.”

So there seems to be life at Defkalion despite the fact that Andrea Rossi announced a few weeks ago that he had severed ties with the company over a breach of contract. We shall have to wait to see what they are going to announce, but it seems they are moving ahead with plans to commercialize their E-Cat based technology.

As October approaches there is no let up in the intrigue and drama surrounding the E-Cat!

    If e-cat works and Rossi unmistakably demonstrates this, so hardware production will be extremely easy. The better way is Rossi doesn’t produce anything! but lease his technology (so patent is crucial) to large corporations (for example General Electric) that could quickly produce a large quantity of e-cats and already have widespread distribution networks to sell and spread it rapidly! The mass production could drastically lower production costs and would be counterproductive for Rossi spending money to build plants and networks that others already have and are not completely using! That means less capital needs, greater and earlier profits for Rossi and a lower hardware costs for customers: a win-win strategy!

    Nasa involvement would be a great news! Non only for its great worldwide standing but also because Nasa has the practical and theorical know how and instrumentations to greatly improve e-cat performances in a much shorter time and cheaper than Rossi alone could.

      “The better way is Rossi doesn’t produce anything! but lease his technology (so patent is crucial) to large corporations (for example General Electric) that could quickly produce a large quantity of e-cats”

      Yes! Dr. Rossi needs to recognize his role as inventor, and stay out of the world of production. He then can use his considerable talent to come up with his next solution, whatever that proves to be.

      Getting his patents will be easy once he convinces the scientific world that his technology is for real.

    Passerini is also writing on his blog about the same visit:

    “I’ll add that the tests performed on early September with that customer, of which there has been much talk here, have actually been made in Bologna. I’ll add that, according to what I’ve been said, the test was successful: the American customer is satisfied and does not doubt that the E-Cat represents a new energy source and not a hoax, and I stress that it’s NOT a customer that can be scammed in any way.”

    Also, remember that Rossi has been promising E-Cats to Europeans in 2012 on his blog. A lot easier to do that if Defkalion is making them.
