Close up Video of Celani Reactor

In case you haven’t noticed (I hadn’t until this evening), the folks involved in the Martin Fleischmann Memorial Project have been busily uploading a number of new videos to their Youtube Channel. Some of them are endorsements of the project by some of the leading figures in the CF/LENR field, including Frank Gordon, Mike McKubre and Peter Hagelstein. The video below includes very close up shots of the Celani LENR reactor when it was on display at NI Week. Not only is the reactor interesting, but so is watching various people inspecting the device.

It seems like the MFMP is a serious effort, with important support and contributors, and I’m told good progress is being made and more information will be released before too long.

    Dear Dr Joseph Fine:
    You are perfectly right: in fact we are designing the new 1 MW plants, for hot temperature, and the dimensions will be those of a cylinder with a diameter of 1.2 m and a lencth od 0.4 m.
    Is shocking, I myself are surprised, but it is so.
    Warmest Regards,

      Dear Franco:
      Attention: the dimensions 1.2 x 0.4 is not the surface of the surface of the reactors! Inside this drum of 1.2 x 0.4 m there are 100 reactors , each of one having about 1 200 cm^2 of surface !
      I talked of the dimensions of the external container, not of the heat exchange surface !
      Warm Regards,

        Dott. Rossi,
        Could you tell how much does each cylindrical Hot-Cat weight in grams?

        Dear Ecco Liberation:
        The final version will weight about 4 500 grams
        Warm Regards,

    There is an article in New Scientist at

        Thanks Ivan, sounds complicated, I will probably just struggle through.
        Good that New Scientist has written a report.

      Italians can’t speak without vigorously gesticulating with their upper extremities. 😉

      • georgehants

        Just like BBC reporters, their body language is on many occasions totally false and shows insincerity.

        • Francesco CH


          A person who shows his body language has no fear to express his real point of view. Through body language you are able to understand if a person is lying or not. For this reason, you have to be aware of people who stay still and do not show their body language – like the politicians, for example.

          NLP explains that in a very clear way.

          • georgehants

            Francesco CH, I totally agree, what I am saying is these people are taught to pose, to exhibit false body language that is easily seen as insincere.
            False body language is clearly as bad as no body language, but of course no matter what tricks they try, the Truth is easily seen if one is aware of the power of body language.

      • That has nothing to do with body language, it’s product of natural selection. Italy was historicaly malaric, so energeticaly gesticulating people, fending of mosquitos, had higher survival rate.

        • Ged

          I have to call shenanigans on that, for so many reasons, one being that wildly gesticulating takes more energy and also is not effective in warding off mosquitoes; and you do not see that in other more malaria prevalent regions either.

          • GreenWin

            Ged, is right. Energetically gesticulating people are accumulating z-point virtual intelligence, thereby making such people more intelligent than less gesticulating people (e.g. Russians or Zoroastrians)

      If Celani could tell us more about the wire preparation, He says now its simple, but it cost a lot to reach to this point.
      MR Celani, could you make your wire available to others researches?
      Could we at least buy your prepared wire?
      Your could start Selling Celani Kits

      • Ivan Mohorovicic

        I think the Martin Fleischmann Memorial Project organization is planning to make Celani test cells replications/kits available for researchers, students, etc.

  • alexvs

    This is very promising. We all hope that LENR research could some day yields useful systems which relieve the energy scarce.

    Making abstraction of marvellous E-Cats working at 600ºC / 1200ºC, selfheating E-Cats etc. the primigenious E-Cat announced one year ago, remember:

    1.-No radiation,
    2.-Working temperature around 100ºC,
    3.-Output heat six times the equivalent input electric energy,
    4.-Few grams Ni + H fuel for 6 months continuous 10 Kw power

    is now as before inexistent.

    • GreenWin

      Hey, that’s better than non-existent.

  • Martin

    This looks like what we have seen from Rossi, except the insulation. Concerning this fact, I still have one question. What is being certified right now? A primitive, crude Prototype like something or a marketable product? When a car company seeks for an operating icense, they have to present the final car, not a DIY type of thing.

  • Jim Johnson

    Any possibility that Celani’s set up could be started up, then detached from external power sources in a convincing way, and coupled with a thermoelectric generator to power an LED? I’m not sure it would prove anything, however it might have more psychological impact than pointing to a computer display showing the output of a complex calorimeter setup. Or would it just not work?

    • Miles

      +1. I’d like to see it in action attached to a computer with some results.

    • daniel maris

      Yep – that is definitely one of the ways to make progress.

    • Warthog

      Which is precisely what he plans to attempt next (not necessarily generating electricity, but operation in “self-sustain” mode without any input power other than at startup). My guess is that all he needs to do to accomplish that is to use a “Dewar tube” (double-wall, evacuated, mirrored on the inner surfaces of the evacuated portion) instead of the single thick wall he currently uses. Obviously, the inner wall will have to be as thick as current, but the outer wall need not be. Probably blown from fused silica rather than the current borosilicate glass to stand the higher temps.

    New video on Andrea Rossi (italian language – french subs) in High Definition:

    You can even see Cures in some scenes…

    • Adam Lepczak

      It is great to hear MR Rossi and Focardi speaking in their native language. Once the E-Cat gets independently verified I will learn Italian as a sign of respect for these two…

      • Don’t jump the gun just yet. Nobody has produced anything that can be reproduced by others. Everybody is hiding behind a cloak of secrecy which they attribute to trade secrets. Secrets are used to hide extreme competence or gross incompetence.

        By the way, fantastic video. Very well done.

        • Adam Lepczak

          Being in Mr. Rossi’s skin, you’d do exactly the same thing.
          1. Guard your secret.
          2. Proceed with caution.
          3. Blow a lot of smoke to confuse your potential competitors while you make progress.

          Remember that he has been on a forefront of energy production before with PetrolDragon but he wasn’t careful and he got totally “played” and forced into bankruptcy – even though his technology was good.

        • GreenWin

          Charles, have you ever thought the cloak of secrecy might be to hide extra biological entities with super IQs?? It would make a cool movie.

    • Ivan Mohorovicic

      This video is over one year old.

      • Ivan Mohorovicic

        Ok, actually not “over one year”, but close.
        It’s from the October 2011 public E-Cat test.
