The following announcement comes from the Energy 2.0 Society’s website.
Dear E-Cat World Readers,
As many of you are aware now, this site, e-catworld.com, has been delisted from the Google search engine. More details about this situation can be found here.
The upcoming demonstration of the E-Cat QX reactor on November 24th is an extremely important event in the long-running E-Cat story, and because I think it deserves the widest possible coverage (including being searchable on the Google search platform), I have decided to move all coverage of the upcoming E-Cat QX demo event to a new website: ecatworld.org.
e-catworld.com will remain as it is, nothing will change here. I will include prominent notices on this site to remind people to move over to ecatworld.org website. The new site looks a bit different from this one but I hope it will be acceptable in functionality, and I hope to improve it as time goes on.
I have made a request to Google for re-instatement of e-catworld.com on the Google search engine, but have no idea of how long that appeal process will take, so rather than remaining invisible to Google for an unknown amount of time, I have made this decision. Of course it is not my preferred course of action, but it’s the best solution I could come up with in a short amount of time. If the appeal is successful then things can get back to normal.
Thanks very much to all the readers for your continued interest and support. I look forward to the coming days.
I put a question to Andrea Rossi on the Journal of Nuclear Physics about the press release that was published yesterday. There were a couple of things in there that made me suspicious, especially that in some places the release it mentioned “fusion” and “cold fusion”, which Rossi has frequently stated is an inaccurate description of his effect. There were also numerous stylistic errors, and the release did not show up on Leonardo Corporation’s ecat.com website, when the release itself stated ecat.com was the source.
On the Journal of Nuclear Physics today I asked him if he had changed his mind about whether his effect was a form on fusion, and he responded with this:

I did not make that release and I have not idea about who generated it.
I stick on my position. Problem is that under a journalistic point of view LENR is ostic to digest, let alone Rossi effect.
Just keep in mind that we did not make press releases and we are not going to do any of the sort before the test is done.
Probably the journalist that wrote this article has taken information from this blog and elaborated it in a journalistic feature.
So it seems like this press release was probably generated by an enthusiastic supporter, who wants to bring attention to the demo. It probably won’t hurt him very much in the long run, and maybe it has already generated some new interest.
I want to let readers know about something that’s going on with the E-Cat World site. On Monday morning a reader contacted me and let me know that E-Cat World could not be found on the Google search engine. I thought that was strange, because normally the site shows up right at the top of the Google list if you do a search for say, “ecat world”. But after a short time of testing, it was clear that E-Cat World had suddenly become invisible to Google. As far as I can discover, not a single ECW page currently appears in Google search results.
Of course that got my attention. I hadn’t received any notification from Google about any problem with the site, so I went into the Google webmaster tools area and looked around for some clues as to what might be going on, and I came across a note that Google considers E-Cat World “pure spam”, according to this definition:
“Pages on this site appear to use aggressive spam techniques such as automatically generated gibberish, cloaking, scraping content from other websites, and/or repeated or egregious violations of Google’s Webmaster Guidelines.”
After some more research I discovered that starting around the beginning of October there was a massive proliferation of referring pages to E-Cat World appearing on the web. According to the website https://majestic.com/ there are over 2 million of them. Doing some research I discovered that this is a typical tactic of what is known as “Reverse SEO”, which is an attack on a site where someone posts lots of backlinks all over the Internet pointing to the targeted site with the intention of hurting their search rankings.
In this case the links point to E-Cat World, and from Google’s point of view it makes me look like a spammer, someone trying to boost my site in search rankings by sticking spam links to it all over the web to boost popularity in a fake way. Consequently, Google has delisted E-Cat World from their search engine. There is an appeal process which I am currently working my way through and hopefully at some future time the site will be indexed once again.
What this means in practical terms for readers, is that to get to E-Cat World, you won’t be able to do a Google search to find the site; you’ll have to know the exact address of the site — www.e-catworld.com — and type it into the search bar, or use an existing link or shortcut. Or you can use a search engine other than Google to find content on the site. For example, Bing, DuckDuckGo and Yahoo search engines are all indexing ECW as normal.
So that’s where things stand at the moment, hopefully the Google invisibility cloak will be lifted after taking mitigating actions, but there’s no guarantee if or when that will happen.
We are working on some preparation for the E-Cat Presentation and would like to request some help from readers here. It is fairly simple — we just need 25 people to subscribe to a YouTube channel that we have set up for E-Cat World.

Tasks which Vladislav Karabanov’s research team is facing
The first task was to find a method of manageable and effective implementation of the LENR Transmutation of chemical elements. That is, a transformation of low-value chemical elements into valuable ones. A method that has a perspective of industrial application. The microbiological method of transmutation of chemical elements, was proved, by analysis results, to be unpromising. In biological environments, transmutation cannot be controlled and will not yield significant results in the next 15–20 years.
Therefore, we chose to search for a controlled method of LENR Transmutation. At the end of 2016, the beginning of 2017, we gained a clear understanding of the necessary conditions that allow the Low-energy Transmutation process to occur. We have developed a number of important “know-hows” and have identified the key components that should be included in the process. During this period, we have carried out several hundreds of experiments and more than a hundred of different analyzes of the obtained chemical elements. The analysis of both the original matrix and the substance obtained after the process, was conducted.
Dozens of modifications of the LENR Transmutation reactors have been built and tested. We have developed a combination of reagents and compositions of chemical elements that allowed the process of Low-energy Transmutation to occur. We have determined effective methods of energy impact on the prepared medium with a matrix of the starting chemical elements.
It is necessary to point out that we did not seek to delve into theoretical concepts, but focused on practical experiments and results.
As a result of the carried out LENR Transmutation, according to the developed model, valuable chemical elements of the platinum group (platinum, iridium, palladium, ruthenium, etc.) were recorded in matrices of low-value chemical elements (copper, iron, tin, etc.). Also, the presence of other elements, which did not exist in the initial matrices, was recorded.
Examples of chemical analysis results, conducted in a number of independent laboratories.
Image 1. Spectrogram showing presence of a valuable element (in this case iridium), which was not present in the starting material.
Also, as a result of the LENR Transmutation process, in addition to the above mentioned elements of the platinum group, other chemical elements, that were not present in the initial matrix, were obtained (selenium, germanium, niobium, etc.)
Image 2. Results from another laboratory using other analytical equipment. As a result of LENR Transmutation iridium, platinum, and ruthenium were obtained.
Analyzes were conducted in various laboratories and using various equipment in order to receive versatile data. The results confirmed the occurrence of new elements, among which are chemical elements of the platinum group.
Concerning the Cold Transmutation, the Coulomb barrier and the things alike, I can explain them in the following way. I just want to share it with you.
Imagine that the outer border of an atom is like the walls of a house you live in. People inside the house are like protons. If people try to leave the house chaotically, they will bang against the walls. And in order to get out of the house you have to destroy the walls. That is, to overcome the Coulomb barrier. But in reality, people do not leave their houses breaking down the walls. They go through the door or, in the extreme case, through the window. This door or a window is the way, the tunnel through which the proton exchange takes place. And this is Cold transmutation (LENR Transmutation).
Summing up, the research group “Synthestech” has carried out a successful experimental and research work. The foundation was laid for the further development of the technology for LENR Transmutation of chemical elements. There is a realistic perspective in the foreseeable future, with the appropriate technical and laboratory facilities, to develop an industrial technology for the LENR Transmutation of chemical elements.

I decided it might be useful to make a dedicated page for the E-Cat Presentation. I imagine that there will be more information coming out before the event, and of course during and afterwards, and I think it could be helpful to have a single place to post important links and information.
This page could also be something people could share with others beforehand to alert them about the upcoming presentation.

I will be updating it as new information is provided, so check back frequently for the latest updates, and let me know if you have any suggestions.
I have become used to the fact that the E-Cat is a topic that is ignored by the mainstream media, but still I think it’s probably one of the most important technological developments of our time.
As Andrea Rossi prepares for the presentation of the E-Cat QX, one might think this would be the perfect opportunity to finally get the press interested in what he has been doing for the last decade or so, but Rossi is not taking that approach. Here’s a comment on the subject from the Journal of Nuclear Physics yesterday.
November 8, 2017 at 4:10 PM
I was surprised to hear it has been decided not to invite representatives of at least a few of the main-stream media to your 24th November presentation. Presumably the presentation’s purpose is to reveal some of your most recent innovations to a wider audience. Many of your fans reading this blog have been surprised and disappointed, given the truly astonishing implications of your discoveries, that they are not being discussed in the news media on a daily basis. (For a start it would be nice to read some good news occasionally, interspersed within the regular torrent of bad news.)
Is there a reason you do not seem to want to bring awareness of your progress to the entire world?
November 8, 2017 at 4:57 PM
That will be proper when we will launch the product massively.
Now it is premature.
So it seems that Rossi does not want a lot of media attention at the moment. There might be business advantages in not alerting the world that he has a groundbreaking technology that could disrupt the energy industry — but in that case why do a presentation at all, and just continue to quietly work away in your laboratory?
Regardless of Rossi’s inclination to reach out to the media, I’m frankly quite disappointed in the majority of members of scientific press, who one would hope and expect to be looking to highlight important discoveries and bring them to the attention of the public. However it seems clear that ‘cold fusion’/LENR is too toxic subject to be mentioned in ‘enlightened’ circles. It seems to be a topic that with the ability to ruin ones career if taken seriously. Huw Price at Cambridge University has covered this phenomenon well in this article on the ‘reputation trap.’
Without mainstream media outlets covering the story, there will likely be a rather limited reaction to the presentation. As usual it will be covered on a few rather obscure sites like E-Cat World, but we stay largely under the radar. If the presentation is done well and is quite convincing I expect it will be shared by enthusiast. There is a chance that more internet discussion will be generated, and perhaps in time the attention will percolate up to media channels with wider audiences.
