Rossi: Leonardo Corp is very much powerful now

On his official website Journal of Nuclear Physics, Andrea Rossi confirmed that his US based company Leonardo Corporation is very much powerful now. This is in connection to the latest revelation he made stating that the company would not be the same this week. The Italian inventor made very interesting comments on his blog recently [...]

Rossi: First Hot Cat Plant to Start Operations in Feb 2013

Here’s a comment from Andrea Rossi that I think deserves its own thread. Yes, Leonardo Corp is very much powerful now. I can already say that the first 1 MW hot cat will go in operation within February 2013. It will not be a military application, therefore selected persons will be allowed to visit it. It will be installed in a big power production and distribution plant. This is the new. The plant is made in the USA. An extremely important agreement has been signed after the tests of the Hot Cat, which are going on since June in the USA and in Italy. The details will be communicated only after the plant will have been working for enough time to be visitable, also to avoid clubs in the wheels. That’s all I can say right now. Note that he is here referring to the Hot Cat, not the low temperature E-Cat. Rossi has mentioned numerous times that one low temperature plant will be installed at a non-military location somewhere — in Italy as I understand it — so this is apparently a different istallation. Rossi says that this plant is ‘made’ in the USA, not that it will be [...]

Prometeon SRL Launches Web Site, Offers E-Cat Products

The countdown clock has finally expired, and now Prometeon SRL’s web site is live. Prometeon is the exclusive Italian licensee for Leonardo Corporation’s E-Cat products and is led by Aldo Proia, CEO and commercial director. The site is of course in Italian, but with the help of Google Translate some interesting information is revealed. At the moment Prometeon is listing five products: 1. E-Cat Electricity to Heat. This is a 1 MW heat producing plant (up to 120 C) powered by electricity. Recommended for use where a reliable gas supply is not available. 2. Gas Cat. This is a 1 MW heat producing plant which is driven by gas instead of electricity. It is said to be more economical than the electricity-driven plant. 3. Hot Cat (Not yet on the market — in ‘advanced stages of research and development’). It is listed as producing temperatures of 600 C, and recommended for industrial processes that require high temperatures, and for the production of electricity. 4. E-Cat Pure Electric Stand Alone. (Not expected to be available before the summer of 2013.) This plant will have electricity as an output will apparently produce enough surplus electricity to power itself. No external power beyond [...]

On Gas Powered E-cat Units

Following the success of the e-cat LENR device of Andrea Rossi, there have been several talks regarding the many possibilities surrounding the potentials and efficiency of the technology. It can be recalled that the Italian inventor revealed on his official website Journal of Nuclear Physics that his reactor could not be fueled by natural gas. [...]

Natural Gas And The E-cat

A few weeks ago, Andrea Rossi announced that the E-Cat LENR device could now be fueled by natural gas. This was an exciting development, considering that natural gas can be transported to remote...E-Cat Report - getting ready for the Energy Catalyzer

More on Cold Fusion in Scientific American

The newly released Believers film has been mentioned already in Scientific American, and now it has been followed up with a longer article by Jennifer Ouellette titled “Genie in a Bottle: The Case Against Cold Fusion“, which provides a familiar critique. You don’t have to read too far to get an idea of what the tone of the article will be. I can’t speak for the quality of the film, because I haven’t seen it, but as someone who has covered physics for (*cough*) going on 20 years, I well remember the controversy, and have followed it off and on over the years. So I readily admit to getting a little rant-y when I encounter insufficiently skeptical reportage on this topic. It’s prime ground for wishful thinking: who wouldn’t want a source of cheap, limitless energy? I sure do! But wanting something to be true isn’t the same as something actually being true in the rigorous experimental sense of the word. Despite the developments that have been taking place recently that have been chronicled here and elsewhere, the narrative about cold fusion that most people hear from media sources they trust is that there really is nothing going on, and [...]
