Andrea Rampardo: Private Ukrainian Lab Replicated Parkhomov — Detected Neutrons

The article promised by Daniele Passerini has been published on It is written by Andrea Rampado who recently visited a private Ukrainian laboratory where he reports that a team has replicated the Parkhomov version of the E-Cat.

He writes:

I returned a few days ago from a very interesting trip to Ukraine, I visited the laboratories (private) of a group of scientists who have replicated the E-Cat Rossi based on indications and specific publicly released by the Russian scientist Parkhomov, which in turn has successfully replicated the system of Rossi.

Rampado says that he was specifically interested in the production of neutrons, since he was surprised that in the Lugano report no neutrons were detected even though transmutation of isotopes was found. He consulted about this matter with Italian physicist Fabio Cardone who has suggested that the explanation could lie with the “Theory of Space Time Warped”.

Dr. Cardone says that neutrons must have been produced in the Lugano experiment, and the lack of detection lies in the improper use of the measurement software used by the testers, because these instruments were set up to measure neutrons produced in traditional nuclear reactions — i.e. where a continuous stream of neutrons is produced, instead of in a non-continuous or pulsed manner. Rampardo states that the Ukranian experimenters reported measuring neutrons, but that we are going to have to wait at least a year before seeing any scientific report from this group. Apparently they are involved in non-scientific (i.e. commercial) activity at the moment.

Andrea Rossi has reported, covered by Mats Lewan in his book An Impossible Invention, that in early experiments with Focardi, when they pushed the E-Cat very hard, that neutrons were detected using a neutron dosimeter (bubble detector), but none of the third party reports published so far, have any neutrons been detected.

    Hydride, H-, forms soft (by HSAB) polarizable covalent bonds with transition metals like nickel. So, this isn’t analogous to a proton, H+, in a plasma. I had some crazy thought about this before.

    Ok, I see your point – thanks for seeing mine. Neither is really a fact. As for what Rossi has said, I don’t really think he is a “monopolist” — although I would concede that one could construe him in this light based on his statements about the competitive nature of his advantage. Please remember this is a guy who once held the world’s record for the 24 hour distance run. Competition is a major part of his personality. You can say this is bad, because what the world needs is more cooperation, open source, etc. — and I won’t disagree with you. But notice that there is also something to be said for the competitive spirit that drives the researcher or the entrepreneur forward in new discovery. I am reluctant to be overly critical at this point of the man who, more than any other, is responsible for the current resurgence in LENR research and who very much appears to be leading the race to industrialization. It is only natural under our current situation that he would want to emphasis in public that he feels his team is leading and will “crush” the competition.

    Does that mean he is oblivious to the humanitarian aspect of the new technology? Not to me.

    Does it make him a mean-spirited monopolist who will do anything to put the “competition” out of business? I don’t think so.

    Does it mean that I.H. is going to lock up the technology and prevent an open source LENR movement from developing? Highly unlikely. I would say, cut him a little slack and see what happens.

      psi2u2, there is a vast overlap in our points of view :>), and , yes, I take into account the probable ‘psychological make-up’ of Rossi, been following him for quite some time and read the book. He is a passionate, hardworking guy and, yes, he deserves to be rewarded for his efforts as an entrepreneur and a visionairy against all odds. But this thing is too grand to leave to a ‘super Bill Gates’, so much money and power concentrated at one spot is useless and very dangerous. It will be ‘taken over’ by the powers that are harassing mankind for some centuries now, one way or an other and again, nothing will change : they “will manage to put a meter on LENR”…
      I.H. is IMO a serious risk : we know nothing about them, they keep in the dark, omnious, we can’t seriously trust them with a thing this grand and important for the world – no single entity in the world, actually-
      OK. my opinion/fear again…
      Rossi’ll get rich ok, but I hope, and since Parkhomov and in his trail a wolfpack of garage-science replicants, with more confidence, that that will happen parallel to a healthy proliferation of LENR, beyond the reach of these powers. Russia, India, China.. as far away from the Morgan-Stanley’s and Rotschilds of this world and the internet will enable it… hoping, dreaming…

        I think things are pretty much out of Rossi’s hands when it comes to commercialization of this technology now. He says he’s not on the management team of IH.

        I think the Lugano report took IH by surprise — the amount of information that was put into the public domain — and now we see that smart people like Alexander Parkhomov can figure out a lot from it. This release of knowledge will surely factor into IH’s decisions regarding how they manage this technology.

    Hi Wally/Cimpy/mW, I think you should review what you wrote and learn to make searching with google. I reported exactly what is on the net ..
    Denigrate and offend people is a sign of low intelligence and stupidity.
