Independence! (4th of July Thread)

Here in the United States it’s the 4th of July — Independence day. I’ll be tied up with festivities most of the day, but thought I’d open up a thread on the theme of independence as it pertains to the topic we focus on here. The way I see it, one of the most importantRead more

Dean Kamen Sees Stirling Engines Replacing Grid as Power Source Within a Decade

Dean Kamen, inventor of the Segway personal transporter and numerous other devices (mainly in the medical field) is working on developing a generator that could help people say goodbye to the grid as we know it. Forbes has an article by Christopher Helman about a Stirling engine-based generator called the Beacon that can produce continuousRead more

Book: “The Explanation of Low Energy Nuclear Reaction” by Edmund Storms to be released July 7th

Infinite Energy Press has announced the publication of a new book on LENR by Dr. Edmund Storms, a nuclear scientist retired from the Los Alamos National Laboratory. The Explanation of Low Energy Nuclear Reaction: An Examination of the Relationship between Observation and Explanation will be published on July 7th. The publicity material for the bookRead more

UK Charity Nesta Hits Problems Trying to Cover LENR as a Hot Topic

Thanks to Dr. Bob for sharing a link to an article on the UK organization Nesta’s web sit. Nesta was formed as a government agency (National Endowment for Science Technology and the Arts), but in 2010 was reorganized as a public charity which specializes in funding innovation projects. In a blog posting, Technology Futures internRead more

Andrea Rossi’s 1978 Waste-to-Fuel Patent

I am grateful to Mats Lewan for making available to me this pdf of the patent filed by Andrea Rossi in 1978 for a waste-to-fuel process that we mentioned here yesterday. The title of the patent (translated from Italian by Google) is “Procedure for the recovery of industrial and urban waste. Apparatus and relative productivityRead more

Edmonton to Launch Waste-to-Biofuel Plant Based on Old Rossi Technology

This might be of interest to people here. In the next few weeks in Edmonton, Canada there will be an opening of the Waste-to-Biofuels and Chemicals Facility which will be used to convert garbage into biofuels. The process that will be used to make this conversion will apparently be based on work done by AndreaRead more

Light on the Horizon for Cold Fusion? (CF features in Dutch Engineering Magazine)

The following post was submitted by Gerard McEk In the latest issue (number 6 of 2014) of the Dutch magazine “De Ingenieur” I found an article called “The mosaic of the future”. The “Foundation Technology Vision of the Future” (Dutch: “Stichting Toekomstbeeld der Techniek”) selected six world wide community challenges for 2050: scarcity of naturalRead more

Empirically incontrovertible evidence for D-D “cold” fusion seen in accelerator experiments

The following was submitted by E-Cat World Reader Gordon Docherty I came across the following on the Cold Fusion Now website (via Alain Coetmeur ‘s LENR revolution in process, cold fusion website) — an interesting presentation from E. N. Tsyganov, Cold Fusion Power, International, OSNovation Systems, Inc., Santa Clara, CA : http://coldfusionnow.org/wp-content/uploads/2014/06/Tsyganov-Dubna-Talk.pdf for a seminar,Read more

LENR Simplified: Pencils, Windmills and Super Mario

The following post was submitted by ECW reader Lilylover Often technical posts like the one about ‘Discrete Breathers’ may not generate a lot of interest. Sometimes they are important, sometimes they are trifling. So, today, I thought maybe I’ll interest some of the E-Catters into desiring to read a technical/dry post by providing a simplified version. This mightRead more

‘Discrete Breathers’ in LENR (New Paper)

Thanks to Andreas Moraitis for referencing a new paper published on Arxiv.org written by Vladimir Dubinko of the NSC Kharkov Institute of Physics and Technology,in Ukraine. The paper proposes a theoretical explanation for what is occurring in low energy nuclear reactions — and Dubinko introduces a term (new to me) of ‘discrete breathers’ (DBs) toRead more

Rossi Names Some Competitors: Shell, Mitsubishi, MIT, Volvo, ABB, NASA

On the Journal of Nuclear Physics today Andrea Rossi was asked about what he thought the effects of his work might be on competitors — and what kinds of progress might be made in the field LENR field by others. Rossi responded: Ville Kanninen: It is impossible to answer to your question, or, at least,Read more

Simeon Hein on Cold Fusion Being Real (Video)

Thanks to Pelgrim108 for bringing my attention to this newly produced video by Simeon Hein about cold fusion. I’ve actually never heard of Simeon Hein before, but he is apparently quiet well known in the field of what some might call ‘fringe’ science. He covers topics like crop circles, remote viewing, UFOs, the ‘Fractal Multiverse’,Read more
