Rossi: Solar Powered E-Cat Possible

We discussed the other day here about the possibility of using a battery to ‘drive’ the E-Cat — as a heat source to start it up, and control the reaction — but there are other power sources that could serve the same function, and today on the Journal of Nuclear Physics, Steven Karels raised theRead more

Report of Josh Hall Lecture on Cold Fusion

I am very grateful for this report submitted by ECW reader Clifford Kaufmann. The meeting at Eastern Shore Community College Lecture Hall on Friday, May 2, 2014 in Melfa, Virginia was well attended, with roughly fifty people present. Josh Storrs Hall, PhD, was the speaker, and he accompanied his lecture with an excellent slideshow whichRead more

The Battery Powered E-Cat

We know from all that has been revealed over the years about the E-Cat that it required an external source of heat to ‘charge’ it — i.e. to initiate the reaction, and then to control it. While Andrea Rossi has spoken recently about using natural gas as a heat source to charge and control theRead more

Rossi: IH Unable to Replicate LENR from Competitors’ Patents

We’re under quite an information blackout from Andrea Rossi and Industrial Heat these days — there will apparently be no major news about technological or commercial progress until the Third Independent Party report is published — we hope by the end of June. I don’t think this news means that nothing is going on —Read more

Tom Darden Attends Launch of Sino-US Science and Technology Innovation Park in Baoding, China

Thanks to Julian Becker for sharing a link to this article from the China Daily web site which reports about the official opening of the Sino-US Science and Technology Innovation Park in Baoding, China on April 14th. Of interest to E-Cat World readers might be that Tom Darden of Cherokee Investment Partners, and Industrial HeatRead more

Piantelli Patent Filing Published for Improving LENR Process

Thanks to Alan Smith and artefact for pointing out a recently published patent application (filed April 26, 2012) by Francesco Piantelli, which is described as a “method and apparatus for generating energy by nuclear reactions of hydrogen adsorbed by orbital capture on a nanocrystalline structure of a metal.” The process described is an attempt to solveRead more

Lithium: The Case for an E-Cat Catalyst [Updated: Piantelli Patent mentions Lithium]

The following guest post was submitted by Rick Allen. There are a combination of factors that make a nickel-hydrogen cold fusion system work and allow for massive energy production. This has been demonstrated by Andrea Rossi’s “Energy Catalyzer” technology. Repeated tests – private, public, corporate, and institutional – have determined the E-Cat technology can produceRead more

More Progress on Alan Smith’s HHO Experiment Setup [Updated]

Alan Smith of Leap Forward Laboratory Ltd. provides his latest update on the experimental setup he is building for his experiment with HHO gas/Catalyzer that ECW is sponsoring. UPDATE: This is the latest from Alan HHO Calorimetry Experiments still moving forward. This the (almost) complete system, waiting for some more hook-up tubing. Electrolyzer and aRead more

CHP and its Future With CF/LENR (Guest Post)

Many thanks to ECW Reader Alain Samoun who has provided the following article about combined heat and power systems. Some statistics that I have gathered about CHP (Mainly from Cogeneration & On-Site Power Production (COSPP) ) CHP: Combined Heat and Power (electricity)  also called Cogeneration and DG distributed generation. The local production of energy is moreRead more

The Industrial Heat Web of Connections includes GE, Others

Thanks to Mr. Moho for the following post which provides a feasible link between Industrial Heat LLC, and GE. The Tom Darden patent for a distributed energy system mentioned in a post here yesterday lists the co-inventor as James Kevin (Jim) Syperski, who is CEO of a Raleigh, North Carolina company called Power Generation Services,Read more

Tom Darden of Cherokee/Industrial Heat Files Patent for Microgrid System

Thanks to Andreas Moraitis for finding this interesting patent application filed by Tom Darden (CEO of Cherokee Investment Partners and Chairman of Industrial Heat LLC) titled “Systems and methods for microgrid power generation and management” It’s unclear to me whether this was filed with the E-Cat in mind because the application date is listed asRead more

Private LENR R&D requires permit in Germany?

I thought this was a point that readers here might find interesting. A few weeks ago ECW reader ‘hunfgerh‘ made a comment here that in Germany private experimentation of LENR reactors was forbidden. Today the same poster has more specific saying: “Authorities people from the area of atomic energy act have threatened me with a report to police.Read more
