E-Cat Report Watch Thread (Update #19: Rossi on Test: ‘Thousands of Hours, Without Interruptions’)

Since there is an increasing amount of anticipation about the long-expected report from third party which has been involved in long-term testing of the E-Cat, I thought I’d create a thread where news, links, rumors, etc. could be posted. Remember, in the fog of war there can be confusing and perhaps innacurate messages, so weRead more

Rossi on Transmutation in the ‘Rossi Effect’

Today on the Journal of Nuclear Physics, Andrea Rossi provided some interesting details about what is taking place in the E-Cat in terms of transmutation of elements. Rossi was asked if he uses different isotopes of nickel in the E-Cat and he provided this response: We think that our process, the so called “Rossi Effect”,Read more

The Backfire Effect and Cold Fusion (Guest Post)

The following is a guest post by Billy Jackson The Backfire Effect 10 June 2011 The Misconception: When your beliefs are challenged with facts, you alter your opinions and incorporate the new information into your thinking. The Truth: When your deepest convictions are challenged by contradictory evidence, your beliefs get stronger.  The backfire effect isRead more

A Day in the Life of Andrea Rossi

For those of us interested not just in the E-Cat as an invention, but also its inventor, Andrea Rossi has responded to a question on the Journal of Nuclear Physics about his daily routine these days. I must say that I have always found the daily habits and routines of people I consider to beRead more

Helion Energy Raises $1.5 Million for Fusion Reactor

There has been some comment here and other sites about Helion Energy, a Redmond, Washington-based company which is seeking to develop an new type of nuclear fusion reactor that will be able to produce twice as much energy as is input into it. The Wall Street Journal’s Venture Capital Dispatch has published an article reportingRead more

Rossi: Safety Certification Obtained for Low and High Temperature E-Cats

Today Andrea Rossi announced on the Journal of Nuclear Physics what would appear to be an important development in the commercialization of the E-Cat. In a comment about the use of multiple reactors inside each E-Cat plant, Rossi made this comment: Last, but not least: our modules of E-cats and Hot-cats have been certified. IRead more

AR on What the Rossi Effect is Not

Many people have been trying to get their head around what the ‘Rossi Effect’ is. What could be going on inside the E-Cat reactor to generate so much energy without the problems associated with the nuclear and chemical reactions that are currently used? If Rossi won’t tell us what is going on (he says thatRead more

Rossi on ‘Electrostatic’ Force from the E-Cat

Most people following the E-Cat story are aware that we’re in a lull in the action as we wait for the long anticipated report, and the unveiling of the first commercial plant. I hope this period won’t go on for too long, but it will take as long as it takes, and I’m certainly notRead more

The Death of Nuclear (Fission) Power?

I came across an interesting article on vox.com titled “The rise and fall of nuclear power in 6 charts”, which features some charts taken from the 2014 Nuclear Industry Status Report and give visual presentations which provide a quick look at the current status of nuclear power, and projections into the future. You can checkRead more

’1 MW Plant will Close the Experimentalism Era and Open the Commercial Era

It seems that a great deal is resting on the performance of the 1 MW plant. In the post below from the Journal of Nuclear Physics, Andrea Rossi emphasizes how important this plant will be to the future commercialization of Industrial Heat’s technology now and into the future. Today he wrote: Gillana: It is extremely importantRead more

Rossi Provides More Details About First Commercial E-Cat Plant: Must Produce Steam 24h/day, 350 Days/year

There’s not a huge amount of detail provided here, but it’s always interesting for me to get any information about the first 1 MW plant which we suppose will be put into action, and made public, sometime this year. The following is an exchange between a reader and Andrea Rossi on the Journal of NuclearRead more

Peter Gluck on the Differences Between LENR and LENR+

Romanian technologist, chemical engineer and publisher of the Ego Out website, Peter Gluck, is a long-time supporter of cold fusion/LENR, and more recently of what he often refers to as LENR+ — the new generation of high-energy output LENR which has been pioneered by Andrea Rossi. Gluck has recently published a post on his siteRead more
