Rossi on Press Release: Unauthorized and Not True

Following the press release issued by Uta Stechl, and the subsequent repudiation by Adolf Schneider, I contacted Andrea Rossi about it, and just received the following:

I do not know why that press release has been made: it is completely wrong and not true. The product certification is in course, and we cannot talk of it because under NDA.

I never authorized that press release and I repeat that it is wrong and not true!!! I did not release that information, I never authorized anybody to make statements or press releases on my behalf. Please take in consideration ONLY the information that is given directly from me or that is taken from information given from me.

Warm Regards,

Andrea Rossi

    Uta Stechl has published a correction to the press release:

    Zertifizierung SGS ECAT

    Korrektur der Pressemeldung vom 5.9.12 bez. ECAT
    Diese Mitteilung war nicht vom Hersteller Andrea Rossi autorisiert. Explizit soll dazu klargestellt werden, dass zwar eine Zertifizierung hinsichtlich der Sicherheit im Gange ist und in Aussicht gestellt wurde, diese jedoch nicht schriftlich vorliegt und nicht die Technologie an sich betrifft.

    Die Stechl GmbH ist an den Vertriebstrechten für den deutschen Markt beteiligt und engagiert sich für den Verkauf der 1MW-Anlagen

    ———-

    SGS certification ECAT

    Correction to the press release dated 05/09/12 ref. ECAT
    This release was not authorized by the manufacturer, Andrea Rossi. Explicitly it should be clarified that although a certification regarding the safety is in progress and is prospected, but it is not available in writing and does not concern the technology itself.

    The Stechl GmbH is involved in the sales for the German market and is committed to the sale of the 1MW plant

    Rossi goes even further. He threatens legal action against people in his sales network (Stechl, an internet car dealer) who took this action to damage him. Neuman had confirmed they work together. And I wonder how that will be explained in Zurich, where Stechl is on the agenda right before Rossi

    Dear Pasquale:
    Today somebody, saying he is our German Licensee, has made a press release saying that we got the product certification . It is totally false. I never gave that information, who made that press release has totally invented it and also the name I read is not the name of a Licensee of us. Probably this action has been made to try to damage us. We have in course a product certification, but it will take time.
    Conclusion: the press release of today regarding our certifications is false, not authorized, misleading. PLEASE NEVER CONSIDER A PRESS RELEASE OF US IF IT DOES NOT COME FROM ME, SIGNED BY ME.
    Our attorney is considering any action.
    ANDREA ROSSI, ceo of Leonardo Corp.

    • Karl

      Why do you wonder? It is a reasonable action to take by Rossi or any one in a business relation if the is a breach of a deal between the parties and a damage, which it certainly seems to be.

    • Chris

      So apparently he is saying that Uta Stechl is not a licensee of his, yet she is on the program of the Zurich conference. What does it mean that she is “only in the group of licensees”?

      Hmmm, this is one of the suspiciously disappointing things. It doesn’t seem as if he’s being very cautious at all in his most fundamental business associations.

    • barty

      There was just posted a long comment on the facebook group, where Gerd Neumann was criticized about his amateurish act. It’s in German, but google translate would be enought to understand the key points:

      “‎Gerd Neumann, was mich stutzig macht ist der mehr als misserable Auftritt der schweizer und deutschen Lizenznehmer oder Lizenzgruppe (wie auch immer).

      Ich sehe das sehr kritisch, weil angeblich Millionen von Euros im Spiel sind, aber nicht einmal eine ordentliche Website – die heutzutage jeder 16-jährige aufsetzen kann – dabei heraus kommt. Ich selbst kenne mich in diesem Bereich sehr gut aus, ich weiß dass man mit Joomla und WordPress in etwa zwei Std. eine sehr professionell wirkende Website aus dem Boden stampfen kann.

      Letztendlich kommt es aber auf die Inhalte an, und die sind bei der (SEHR, SEHR FRAGWÜRDIGEN) TransAltec AG, e-cat Deutschland und e-cat Vertrieb irgendwie sehr fragwürdig.
      Es macht den Eindruck dass hier keiner so recht weiß (und wissen WILL) wie der e-Cat und LENR auch nur im Groben funktionieren. Es werden Informationen, die Anfang 2011 als Gerüchte im Umlauf waren (z.B. dass Nickel zu Kupfer transmutiert, das stimmt nicht!), immernoch als aktuellen Wissenstand verbreitet.
      Dann noch der Bezug auf die NASA, die eben rein garnichts bestätigt! Da genügt das Anschauen des Videos…

      Hier werden verschiedenste Dinge komplett aus dem Zusammenhang gerissen und wie es gerade am Besten passt, in der Hoffnung dass keiner Englisch versteht, “weiterverwertet”. Wollte man einen harten Ausdruck für ein solches Vorgehen verwenden, würde der Begriff “Verarschung” gut passen.

      Das alles enttäuscht mich sehr. Ich dachte weil Deutschland weltweit für hohe Qualitätsstandards bekannt ist, würden im Bezug auf den e-cat Maßstäbe gesetzt.
      Dem ist leider nicht so.

      Dass Sie immer wieder betonen wie viel Geld im Spiel ist, und keiner einfach so finanzielle Risiken eingeht, überzeugt mich aus oben genannten Gründen leider überhaupt nicht.
      Im Gegenteil, es verwundert mich umso mehr dass dabei dann solch ein Stuss zustande kommen kann.

      Wenn ich nur die E-Cat Deutschland Facebook Seite sehe, mit vier Tippfehlern in einem einzigen Satz in der Beschreibung (“Alles junges aufstebendes Unternehmen für effiziente und 100% umweltschonende Energiegewinnung stehen wir für eine einmaligiges Produkt ein.”).
      Jetzt wurde nach Tagen wenigstens das “Alles” korrigiert, aber die anderen drei Fehler sind noch immer vorhanden.

      Zudem hat Andrea Rossi gestern angekündigt mit juristischen Mitteln gegen Uta Stechl vorzugehen, weil sie falsche Informationen verbreitet hat.
      Wo soll da ein Vertrauen zu potentiellen Kunden aufgebaut werden?

      Das ist viel Kritik von mir, aber sie ist sicherlich nicht unberechtigt.

      Wenn angeblich soviele finanzielle Mittel vorhanden sind, sollte es auf keinen Fall am einfachsten Glied scheitern:
      Dem öffentlichen Auftritt bzw. Marketing.”

      Sad but true…

      • Steve B

        it gets even better. On same facebook group Neuman goes
        “Lizenznehmer kommen, die Millionen von Lizenzgebühr bezahlt haben ….Wir haben Rossi die Summe für die Lizenzgebühr geschickt, ohne eine Quittung und ohne einen vorher durchgegangenen Vertrag! Wißt Ihr wie man das nennt? Vertrauen!!! ”
        This means in plain English: licencees paid mio of dollars, he sent his check to Rossi without a contract, without a receipt, based on trust. Now, I wonder, What kind of businessmen are these people ? For such kind of investment, no due diligence was taken ?

        • barty

          What these guys are saying what they are doing is only laughable.

          Isn’t it money laundering to transfer so much money without any logging?

          • Chris

            If it was a cheque it isn’t without logging and even otherwise it wouldn’t necessarily be so. If the money isn’t dirty there’s no laundering to be done on it. Traceability just makes it possible to track down cases which actually are criminal and this is the reason for it being required nowadays, but it isn’t what makes the difference between clean and dirty.

      • James

        I agree with Barty: my 6 year old could design a better website than Uta. There is no information on it whatsoever. No reputable person would ever consider buying from such a miserable effort. Further, Uta has a disclaimer: “Alle Informationen und Erklärungen dieser Internetseiten sind unverbindlich. Die Dipl. Ing. FH Uta Stechl GmbH übernimmt für die Richtigkeit und Vollständigkeit der Inhalte keine Gewähr. Es werden keine Garantie übernommen und keine Zusicherung von Produkteigenschaften gemacht” Basically, she says that she does not guarantee that the product descriptions are accurate.

  • ivan_cev

    Rossi plays with his own money???? So. to whom the licencees are giving its money???
    I thinks the Statement that Rossi only uses his money is not true.

  • Blanco69

    Sorry Frank for dragging this off thread slightly but things are moving so quickly now you have to drop your points in on the wave crest. I have a point about the nature of the ‘spent’ ecat fuel. We have long known that most protagonists are saying that fuel ( nickel power) should be replaced every 6 months. So I’m thinking that by now, there must be a considerable sample of spent fuel around. Close analysis of said sample should offer up many insights as to the nature of the reaction that’s been taking place. Is it still nickel? We’ve moved away from the cold fusion term to an extent where I’m pretty sure the spent fuel is not a pile of copper! So what is it? Why can it no longer react? In my view Rossi and co must know this. My point, I guess, is that we should by now know what is happening inside these reactors. Yet those theories that are put forward seem to be wild speculation. Rossi is more vague about this than anything else yet he should know for sure.

    • http://www.electric-sailing.fi Pekka Janhunen

      Defkalion published some kind of an elemental analysis of the fuel before and after reaction. Unfortunately there wasn’t enough context information (what time, what method to measure it, surface or interior etc.) to make it really useful, and info about deuterium and helium was lacking. Also I remember having wondered why nickel was seemingly only a minor species. I think it was in the “paper” DGT published after NI Week about a month ago.
      Despite the ambiguities, perhaps someone with knowledge of such type of scientific analysis (I have almost none) should take it up and ask about the unclear points at DGT’s forum where they now again seem to be answering to people relatively generously.

    • alexvs

      Your question responded by Uta Stechl:

      - E-Cat-Systeme erzeugen Wärme als Folge der Fusion von Wasserstoff mit Nickel
      - Bei diesem exothermen Prozess wird Nickel in Kupfer transmutiert.
      - Das verbrauchte Nickelmaterial kann zu 90% rezykliert werden.

      From http://www.ecat-vertrieb.de/daten.html

      • http://www.health-answers.co.uk Peter Roe

        “- E-Cat systems generate heat as a result of the fusion of hydrogen with nickel
        - In this exothermic process, nickel is transmuted into copper.
        - The used nickel material can be recycled to 90%.”

        If a car dealer from Tuessling says this is how cold fusion works, I suppose it must be true.

        • alexvs

          German used car dealers are very wise. It must be true.

        • barty

          Oh my god. This are informations that we had in february 2011 or so…

          Now we know:
          - It isn’t a fusion like the physics know fusion. Science currently don’t know what it is.
          - copper is already in the nickle alloy, or nickle powder, see the celani reactor (Ni, Cu, Zn).
          - The nickle is a type of catalyst, so it isn’t consumed and is re-useable.

          Summarized: Mrs Uta Stechl don’t know what she is talking about!

          Car dealers and energy business… :(

        • Blanco69

          Thanks Peter, What the car dealer reports is what I’d call cold fusion. Wonder why everybody wants to call it LENR or something else. No wonder Rossi is trying to distance himself from these guys (girls). Can’t wait until the next Uta Says. Seriously though, this is very damaging. Rossi will have to cut these guys loose before they drop any more grenades.

        • Makarov

          The NI slides confirmed that there’s no metal-metal transmutation taking place (but perhaps hydrogen fusion). That is also why there is no radiation.

    • Steve B

      It is true, the spent fuel is the key to understanding the whole thing.
      Rossi claims it converts to 30% copper but there is no supporting evidence ever published.
      However, at an earlier stage, the spent fuel (e-cat ash) had been analysed by Kullander in Sweden. He found Ni, Fe and Cu in natural istope ratio which contradicts the process as claimed by Mr Rossi. The conclusion is there was no nuclear process in that specific sample. Then it went silent on the issue. In the patent Rossi shows experimental data, and elaborate on Zn and fission products – but no Cu. Not matching what the Sweds found.

    • Omega Z

      Blanco69

      They Analyze all the samples after being used. The Data is used in improving the process. These samples are not at anyone’s disposal at this time. Trade secrets.

      Cures has hinted that the secret catalyst may be in the preparation of the surface of the Nickel powder, Although he isn’t certain.

      He has also indicated that the amount of Nickel being transmuted may have decreased with higher temps. In the Hot Cat tests, the amount consumed was so small they couldn’t measure it accurately. Would require a very long run to get accurate measures.

      Rossi has indicated that the results have changed with progress, but will not give specifics until full publication. It’s also been hinted that the transmutations of Nickel to Copper may be a side effect from whats really going on inside the core.

      Rossi has said that the reason E-cats have to be recharged every 6 months is that the secret catalyst has been used up. Not the Nickel. One of the licensee has indicated that in time Rossi thinks with refinement, this refill may be once a year.

      As for the Nickel, One of the others working in LENR thinks once the process is refined with additional research that 100% of the Nickel will be recyclable. No Copper mutation. This Fits the rumor from the Rossi camp that the mutation may be a side affect of the process. Not part of the process itself. This would be similar to the palladium setup. No Loss of palladium…

      Most of this has been speculated on here & there for a long time. It’s a new technology with a long learning curve. Just as in the February Video with the Aussie & the Indie Reps speculated that in 10 years, you may see a COP>100.

      Also in that Video, it was mentioned that in a couple years, the Low temp home E-cat may be able to produce Electricity @ 35% to 40% thou no promises. Bill Donovan is supposed to be working on that. Something to do with the beta decay inside the Core or something. It was hard to catch the words in the Video.

      • Blanco69

        Thanks Omega Z, I agree that, if this effect is real, then it’s not what we’d call Cold Fusion but something else that is less obvious from the spent fuel analysis. It confirms that our friends in Germany are quite far off the page.

      • Chris

        If it gets used up, then catalyst isn’t really quite the proper name for it. Unless it simply degrades during the process.

  • NJT

    looks to me like someone took a page out of Apple’s PR and leaked info for the hype it generates just before the big show!

  • sparks

    Rossi’s broken English has always been his greatest asset. It allows a lot of ambiguity to be packed into every communication, enabling the “believers” to interpret between-the-lines as needed to bolster their level of belief, and confounding the attempts of so-called “skeptics” to disprove or discredit the terse pronouncements. This can go on for a long, long time. And it will.

    • http://www.health-answers.co.uk Peter Roe

      Agreed – Rossi’s command of ambiguity in a language that is not his own is impressive. I’m not sure that it can go on all that much longer though, at least, not with much credibility. A couple of days and he may not need such ploys any more (I hope).

      Cures said once that Rossi sometimes gives Misinterpretations & Misinformation on purpose for the benefit of the snakes. What cause confusion for us is the same for them. Remember, the Only People who really count at this time is the Leonardo Trust & the Customer.

      The reason Rossi blogs is 3 fold. Partly for the benefit of his supporters. Partly to confuse the snakes. Partly because he gets good feed back on occasion. Thinking outside the box Ideas. Joesph Fine as example & the drum configuration.

      • http://www.health-answers.co.uk Peter Roe

        I’ve had a bit of fun jumping on Rossi’s ‘anomalies’ since the time of the useless external band heater on the 10kW prototype, so its not all downside! I think that anyone interested in steam power would have come up with the vertical multi-tube boiler arrangement almost immediately (perhaps that includes Mr Fine) as it’s a very well established design for high pressure boilers.

          http://www.cameco.com/common/images/content/u101/fuel_bundle.gif

          Mr. Fine suggested a Hexagon shape allowing more cores in less space. (.8m x.4m) approximate from the postings on Rossi’s blog.

  • Omega Z

    The Press Release stated SGS, which would be a good choice, But Rossi says they are not the company he’s working with??? NDA???

    I’ve posted before that I think the Certifying or validation will be QM Systems,(World Wide as SGS is, Or a company called ENERGIA,(I think, something to that effect.

    What I’ve found of QM Systems is that they can certify both the Production Process & Products & software. Noticed Their going to be at the Zurich presentation.

    ENERGIA, If that’s spelled properly is mentioned by Rossi in the Australian-Mr. Green Video from February as a certificator. I haven’t found much about them using a quick search, but haven’t had time to do a detailed search. There is a life besides E-cat.

    If any of these 3 are involved, The Truth is they don’t want to be hounded by those of us who want info. They are a Business. We are an unwanted nuisance. Disruptive. This is why they have NDA agreements. They will come forward when they are ready, not before.

    Were only a few days from the convention, We just need to be patient.
    We’ll also find out if it’s a validation or a certification. There is a difference. A Validation would most likely imply it is as said. A Certification would imply it works & is safe for the intended use. It may be possible to determine if it’s validated by any Data provide. If that kind of Data is released.

    Just 4 or 5 days. Be patient.

    Rossi didn’t write in all caps. I believe this is noteworthy. Normally when people say things that are untrue about his operations HE WRITES LIKE THIS.

    • http://www.electric-sailing.fi Pekka Janhunen

      I think that he used to write with capslock on JONP when the answer was important for all to read. I guess he thought that most people just asked their own (often repetitive) question without reading the whole blog, so he thought it as a service for them. Anyway in some phase someone kindly instructed him that it’s not good because it’s like yelling. After that the practice has varied, I guess because he sometimes remembers and sometimes not.

  • Andre Blum

    I think what we saw today was a true leak due to amateurism. For now, I think SGS was indeed involved in some kind of testing. That name doesn’t pop up from nowhere. They are most probably the authors of the 140 page “validation document” we were promised. They have not certified anything; they have “validated”.

    Uta Stechl misnaming this validation report a “certification”, *and* disclosing the 3rd party’s name (SGS) against the rules in the NDA is pure stupidity on her behalf.

    Rossi c.s. now have to twist their words to fix this NDA breach:

    “I do not know why that press release has been made: it is completely wrong and not true. The product certification is in course, and we cannot talk of it because under NDA.”

    This is no bad english today from Rossi. This is put in these deliberate words so that they match the truth. “Completely wrong” refers to the fact that the press release has been made (without his authorization), not referring to the complete content. Not true must mean it has nothing to do with certification, but with validation, which must be something different.

  • Gerrit

    In an older post Rossi said about the certification: “2- The safety certification process for the industrial plants has been made. ”

    Now he says: “The product certification is in course, and we cannot talk of it because under NDA.”

    Is he:
    - a) talking about the same certifications and contradicting himself
    - b) talking about different certifications and one is completed and the other is still ongoing
    - c) miscommunicating the “has been made.” where he should have said “has been initiated”

    With this in mind, I doubt that anything useful (newsworthy) will come out of the conference this weekend.

    • Ged

      Hmm, when I look at it closer “2- The safety certification process for the industrial plants has been made. ” sounds like the process has been initiated (the process has been made), not that it’s done. On the other hand, it can read equally both ways. We also don’t know if the certification that is “in course” is the industrial one, that home unit, or the hot cat; can’t assume which one of the three. The NDA may also mean he would have to obfuscate even if the certification was complete. NDAs are tricky beasts and complicate everything.

      • http://www.health-answers.co.uk Peter Roe

        I suppose that if safety certification of the 1MW ‘fat cat’ has been commissioned from a company such as SGS, then probably both parties to the contract would be under a mutual NDA until the completion of the contract. Possibly mis-use of the word ‘certification’ (where ‘verification’ is meant) may have crept in somewhere as well.

        In general though, these continual contradictions are irritating, and I wish Rossi would speak through a native English-speaking PR person, who could clarify his meaning before publishing anything, and also keep the story straight. Admittedly though, this latest faux pas seems to be solely down to someone else.

    • Renzo

      as I understand it:
      1) the certification for the low temperature e-cat (those of the 1MW plant) is completed
      2) the certification for the home ecat is in course
      3) the certification for the hot-cat (600°) is in course

      And the test we are talking about was done this summer on the hot-cat

    Ooops! With so many licensees now, it’s difficult for him to keep them all leashed. Some may want to get some early pre-orders. Or maybe as in the case of the release of info on the hot cat, he isn’t really as upset as he claims. I still think and hope it is SGS and the original report is correct.

    • Ged

      I knew we had to wait to see what Rossi would say. Exactly as you put it, it’s getting harder to keep everyone leashed and on the same page.
