Chief Science Editor of Swedish Radio Defends E-Cat Programme

Ulrika Björkstén, chief science editor for Sveriges Radio has written an article in Ny Teknik which defends and explains the stance taken in the report recently aired about Andrea Rossi and the E-Cat. While Björkstén admits that there is no proof that the E-Cat does not work, and that scientists should have ‘open and inquisitive’Read more

Rossi on His Anxiety Over E-Cat Test Results

Here’s a comment on the Journal of Nuclear Physics by Andrea Rossi that I found interesting — in response to a question by Giuliano Bettini who asked Rossi about the source of his anxiety regarding the upcoming tests. Giuliano asked Rossi whether he was nervous because a) he was afraid that negative test results wouldRead more

Swedish E-Cat Testers Issue Statement Defending their Work, Rossi

The following is a statement just released by five of the professors (all Swedish) who were involved in the 2012-2013 testing of the E-Cat, and who were listed as authors on the May 2013 report. This is an edited Google translation from the original Swedish which was published in Ny Teknik magazine today. Andrea Rossi,Read more

Rossi: ‘Please be Patient’

Since we are now in June, I decided I would take a chance on the Journal of Nuclear Physics and ask Andrea Rossi if he was still expecting the third party report to be published in the second or third week of June, as he had recently mentioned he had been told would be theRead more

Rossi Preparing E-Cat Plant with New Motto: In Mercato Veritas (In the Market is Truth)

A new tone has been struck this month by Andrea Rossi who has started to discuss that he is totally focused on preparing a 1 MW E-Cat plant — apparently getting it ready for public revelation. He has also adopted a new motto: In Mercato Veritas, which I translate to mean ‘In the Market isRead more

ELFORSK Issues Statement on its Involvement in LENR Research

Thanks to AlainCo for bringing attention to the following press release just issued by Swedish energy research institute ELFORSK in response to this week’s radio program on Swedish radio about LENR in which portrayed LENR research in a distinctly negative light. The following is Google translated from the original Swedish. Elforsk continues to follow developmentsRead more

An Onion-Cat?

I’m wondering if Andrea Rossi may have been dropping some hints about a new E-Cat configuration in some recent posts on the Journal of Nuclear Physics. Recently Steven Karels, a frequent poster on the JONP, wrote: You referred to the “Mouse and Cat” design for eCat control. The Mouse provides stability, runs part of theRead more

The E-Cat Report: Who Needs to Know?

If the report we are anticipating on the long-term E-Cat testing turns out to be well done, and contain positive results — i.e. it clearly demonstrates the viability of the E-Cat as a superior source of energy — then I think it will be an immensely important document that should be widely reported about andRead more

Swedish Radio Program Casts Doubt on Cold Fusion, Rossi’s Reputation

Swedish public radio station Sveriges Radio has released the first in a three part report about Andrea Rossi and the E-Cat which examines Andrea Rossi’s reputation, and has a decidedly negative slant — focusing on Rossi’s reputation as a deceiver who uses others to get his dishonest ways. The tone of the piece can be discerned byRead more

Rossi: ‘Vast R&D’ Underway in Coupling Solar Plants with E-Cat

Here’s an interesting exchange on the Journal of Nuclear Physics which give a little indication about how E-Cat technology may be deployed in the future: Dear Andrea Rossi, Have you considered using solar cells to improve the effective COP of the Hot eCat units? Conceptually, each eCat reactor unit would be connected with a heatRead more

LENR: Having Eyes to See

There is much anticipation regarding the long-expected third party report of long-term E-Cat testing, and I think I am as eager as anyone to read it and find out the results of the testing. But I don’t feel much of a sense of anxiety about it, because I fully expect that it will once againRead more

A Few Miscellaneous E-Cat Items

With not too much news coming out about the E-Cat these days, pending the publication of the next third party report,  I thought I’d mention just a few things I’ve noticed that might be of interest here. Andrea Rossi made a comment that indicates that he is still quite involved with Hydro Fusion, the Swedish LicenceeRead more
