A long-awaited scientific breakthrough has been made in Russian and world nuclear physics. For the first time, a controlled nuclear fusion reaction is realized at room temperature

In the laboratory, it was possible to start, regulate and stop the nuclear fusion reaction in deuterated polycrystalline titanium. This became possible only after the discovery of a new type of physical wave, the existence of which was predicted by the great Soviet physicist L.D. Landau in the 1930s of the last century and received experimental confirmation of Alla Kornilova a few years ago.

The final scientific publication on the results of the cycle of experiments is presented in the May issue of the ournal “Engineering Physics”:j

A.A. Kornilov and, V.I. Vysotsky, Yu.A. Sapozhnikov, I.E. Vlasova, SN Gaydamak, A.A. Novakova, V.M. Avdyukhina, I.S. Levin, M.V. Vysotsky, E.I. Khayit, N.Kh. Volkova. “The problem and realization of stable generation of alpha particles by deuterated titanium in a heat wave field”.

Article in Russian:

Video interview with Alla Kornilova from 5 June 2018 in Russian:


At the end of the interview, Alla Kornilova says she thinks that we can expect a real commercial result, use of both large and small cold fusion reactors at the latest in 3 years. Because the vast amount of experience in the field of nuclear energy can be used, all technical problems have already been dealt with.

The inventors listed are Bernhard Kotzias, Ralf Schliwa, and Toor Van Jan. The application was submitted in June 2016, and the patent grant date is March 7, 2018.

Full text available here:

From the description:

“In particular, the invention relates to a power generating apparatus having a reaction vessel or a cell for generating thermal energy by an exothermic reaction. As an exothermic reaction, a quantum condensate is carried out on a metal grid assisted electrodynamic process with hydrogen in particular. The participation of weak and strong interaction is not excluded. Preferably, a LENR is performed as an exothermic reaction, it stands for “low energy nuclear reaction”. This name has historical reasons, in the end, low-energy reaction products are produced by a fusion of nucleons.”

Conference on Exciting New Science and Potential Clean Energy Source Comes to Fort Collins, Colorado ( Press Release)

The following is a press release from regarding the upcoming ICCF-21 Conference to be held June 3-8 2018


6312 Seven Corners Centre #331 

Falls Church, VA 22044

Tel: (202) 930-3001

PRESS CONTACT: Clair Molander (916) 996-3097 /


ICCF-21 Conference is Primary Venue for the Scientific Presentation and Discussion of Experimental and Theoretical Ideas and Experiments in the Field of LENR

FORT COLLINS, CO – MAY 31, 2018  – The 21st International Conference on Condensed Matter Nuclear Science (ICCF-21) will be held at the Lory Student Center on the Colorado State University campus in Fort Collins, CO from June 3-8, 2018.  Roughly 150 scientists from over a dozen countries are expected to attend and present over 100 papers and posters on Low Energy Nuclear Reactions (LENR).  Additionally, for the first time more than 25 graduate and undergraduate students and science teachers will attend the conference via a new scholarship program created to engage the next generation of capable scientists with fresh energy, ideas, and an interest in LENR.

LENR experiments over the past 30 years have shown that it is possible to release large amounts of nuclear energy using small chemical reactions.  The production of nuclear energy with LENR is groundbreaking because these reactions occur without dangerous radiation and do not produce radioactive waste.  While the empirical data for the occurrence and properties of LENR are well documented, the mechanisms that cause LENR are not yet understood.  This is a major scientific puzzle that the annual ICCF-21 conference hopes to address.

Over a dozen companies have been founded in several countries in the hopes of commercializing LENR as a new source of clean, practical energy. ICCF-21 gives these companies and scientists alike the opportunity to discuss LENR scientific research and advancements. Attendees include those interested in the business potential of LENR as a future source of reliable energy.

Proposed EU Copyright Law Could Drastically Change Internet Sharing and Publishing

I don’t normally get involved in broad societal issues on this site, but I have been reading about an issue that has caught my attention which I think could affect the sharing of information on sites like E-Cat World.

The European Union is in the process of revising copyright laws, and many people are alarmed about the impact that passage of the law as it is drafted at this point could have on the sharing of information online. The main focus of attention is Article 13 of the Copyright proposal of the European Commission which would seemingly drastically curtail fair use, which is the doctrine that certain copyrighted material can be used in limited ways without permission from copyright holders. I haven’t had time to dig deeply into all the legal ramifications, but what many observers are saying is that if the law is implemented it could drastically change the way the internet operates.

Here are some comments from Mozilla on the topic.

Despite several failed attempts in countries across Europe (e.g. in Spain and Germany), the Commission has proposed introducing a new pan-European copyright for press publications, sometimes referred to as “ancillary copyright” or a “neighbouring right”, which would create new copyright for snippets of online content. That would mean anyone sharing a link with text, like a news headline or a short blurb about the article, could be charged a license fee from the publisher responsible for the content.
Worst of all, these restrictions would last for 20 years! What’s the last piece of online content that you looked at that was 20 years old?!


This proposal throws the idea of balanced copyright out the window, as it would make all open platforms liable for the actions of their users, enforce a particular type of business model (e.g. licenses), and impose mandatory filters, all with no safeguards to preserve copyright exceptions, or the rights of users.

These measures would in practice require monitoring and filtering of everything that European citizens upload to content-sharing services from social media sites (like Twitter and Facebook), outlets for creative expression (like YouTube, DeviantArt, SoundCloud, and Tumblr), to informational sites (like Wikipedia and the Internet Archives), to open source software repositories (like GitHub). It would be the responsibility of these services to play judge, jury, and executioner for copyright enforcement — businesses large and small could be held liable for the content their users access and share.

There will be a meeting of MEPs on the Legal Affairs Committee (JURI) of the European Parliament on June 20/21 where they will vote about their opinion on the law. Whatever they agree on will go forward to negotiations with the European Council.

According to EDRi, a Europeian association of civil and human rights organisations, the JURI committee does not yet have enough members against the proposed changes to block their passage, with some members being still undecided.

Here’s a video that has been recently published that discusses the issue.

There are a number of other sites covering this issue, urging EU citizens to let their Members of the European Parliament what they think about these proposed changes. However, as with many such complex governmental deliberations, most people are unaware of what is happening and what it could mean. While I haven’t looked into the issue in depth, from what I have read, if these changes go into effect, it could mean big changes for the internet, and how information is published online. I just wanted to do my part to let readers know that this is an issue and that there is a little time for people to let their opinions be know.

Q&A With Andrea Rossi about the E-Cat SK

I recently sent some questions to Andrea Rossi about his work on the E-Cat SK. Below are the questions and his responses.

1. You said that the testing took place at a laboratory that was not your own lab. Why did you go to a different lab for this test?

I needed particular instrumentation I do not have and also for safety reasons, due to the fact that the prototype of the SK could have been dangerous. I have paid a specialized laboratory for this test

2. You have said that the test lasted two days and it ran at 100 kW — how did you manage to keep it cool enough not to melt down during that time?

With a heat exchanger

3. What was the average temperature of the SK in your recent test?

Between 1 and 2 eV

4. What are the differences between the E-Cat SK and the E-Cat QX, and what are some of the advantages of the SK over the QX?

Sorry, but these particulars are confidential. I can say that I had to study electronics to understand issues that allowed us to invent components that do not exist in commerce and that resolved many problems, I would say in a very simple way. Most of times things that seem impossible are not impossible, so far you invent something that makes them not impossible. It is hard, also brutal, because you must study for hours glued to a chair and a table for 20 hours without losing the focus, sometimes is frustrating because you do not understand what you are studying , but you must insist until you understand, but at the end it works.

5. It sounds like for many months you have been getting ready for production of the E-Cat QX as your first commercial product. Do you now change your plans and start preparing to produce the SK instead of the QX?

Not instead, but also. Besides, attention: the QX has a story of a Sigma 5, I deem it reliable, the SK is still dangerous, but we have to make a lot of work to make it reliable and at this point it is very worth to try to make it ready by the end of the year. The Customer that already has made with us an agreement to buy the heat possibly will receive an SK instead of a QX. Maybe. Not impossible. Working on it.

6. Do you have any need in your R&D to advance beyond the E-Cat SK?

I always have this need, to advance beyond anything: it is what gives me life.

7. What makes the difference in the higher power output of the E-Cat SK compared to the QX?

The dimension and the circuitry to make the control. The reactor of the 1 kW QX has a volume of several cc, the SK has a volume of about half liter and a much more sophisticated series of inventions inside it.

8. We saw the E-Cat QX at the Stockholm presentation Can you provide some images of the E-Cat SK?

Externally you can see a box 4 times bigger that the one of the video of the Stockholm demonstration.
Internally will remain for ever a closed box, also for our Customers: as you know, the control will be completely made by means of restricted transmission channels from our heaquarter in the USA, wherever in the world the plant will be.

9. What can you tell us about the two other persons who were with you at the E-Cat SK test? What was their reaction to the test that they witnessed?

They are specialists of the matter and PhD in Physics. Thay think the toy can be very useful.

10. Some people think that Andrea Rossi is coming up with a new version of the E-Cat just as way to delay the introduction of a commercial product (which they suppose will never appear). How do you respond to that charge?

I have been also informed that many bet money on the fact that I will never put the Ecat on the market. I hope they did not bet a fortune, because, along the teaching of the Lord, I must love my enemies and I really do. Besides, I am grateful for any expression of sincere opinions. To them who say you “hey, look at Rossi: he pretends to have new models to run away from his promises to put any product in the market!”, it would be proper for you to respond ” Rossi told me to say thank you for your opinion”.
Thanks also to you and your readers for the attention to the work of our team.

Rossi ‘Trembling’ after E-Cat SK Test

Andrea Rossi has made some comments the tests that he and his team have carried out over the weekend on the latest version of the E-Cat that is called the ‘SK’ (named after the late Swedish physicist Sven Kullander). This is apparently a more powerful reactor than the QX. Here are some recent comments from Rossi about the SK testing.

May 27, 2018 at 5:31 PM
Dear Andrea:
Strong congratulations for the successful test of the Ecat SK. Can you tell us the power you got?

Andrea Rossi
May 27, 2018 at 5:45 PM
100 kW and it is 4 times as big as the 1 kW Ecat QX ( not counting the heat exchanger ), that has the same dimensions of the Ecat QX shown in Stockholm on Nov 24.
I think we made a very good work in these months. Very brutal, but fruitful.
I am still trembling. It was emotional. Now we have to work on it, but I think they will arrive together in the market.

May 27, 2018 at 8:51 PM
Dear Andrea Rossi:
Can you describe some particular phase that made you tremble during the Ecat SK test?

Andrea Rossi
May 27, 2018 at 10:14 PM
we had to protect ourselves behind a grade 14 glass because looking at the light radiated by the SK could damage seriously the eyes. Few seconds after the turn on of the reactor the heat radiated from the Ecat SK broke the 14 protection glass. We had supplementary 14 protection masks. Nonetheless, I saw from that minuscule reactor exit a tremendously dazzling white light all around the laboratory and I will never forget this impression. The SK was born. I think we will make it useful. Many errors emerged, but now we work to correct them, the most difficult part has been resolved.
Warm Regards,

Just as a point of reference, 14 shade eye protection is the type used in glasses used for viewing a solar eclipse safely. The only light you can see with those glasses on is that of the sun, otherwise for looking at anything else, it is just like being blindfolded.

It’s still not clear to me from Rossi’s comments whether the SK will supersede the QX, since he says above that there are still “many errors” and that he thinks “they will arrrive in the market together”. So possibly he is thinking about a 2-track development until the SK problems are solved.

E-Cat is ‘Not a Miracle’

I found an exchange between Gerard McEk and Andrea Rossi on the subject of the E-Cat as a quite interesting and thought provoking.

Gerard wrote:

Wouldn’t you agree that, assuming that people are indeed the cause of the change in climate by burning fossile fuel, the Ecat IS the short term solution?
If you have earned enough money, in the coming years, please give the design and know-how to humanity, so it can be developed much more quickly than you and your team can do, just to save the world!

Andrea Rossi

Gerard McEk:
Thank you for your suggestion.
The global warming has much more complex origins and the Ecat is not a miraculous device.
It will be useful, for sure.
Warm Regards

Gerard McEk

Dear Andrea,
I do not understand why you are saying that the Ecat is not a miracle. If it does do what you have been showing, then it is a miracle, at least in the eyes of 95% of the nuclear physists. Can you explain this, please?Andrea Rossi

Gerard McEk:
The Ecat is not a miracle, it is the product of a team that is working very, very hard that soon will enter the market.
Warm Regards,


From Rossi’s point of view, I think I can understand why he considers it not to be miraculous, and from Gerard’s point of view, I can see why he thinks it is.

Rossi has been working with the E-Cat so closely and for so long that I would think for him it is a practical engineering project that has commercial applications. For the rest of us, it’s something that could well seem entirely miraculous. It reminds me of Arthur C. Clarke’s famous adage: “Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic”.

From one perspective we live in an age of miracles. To someone living just 200 years ago, technologies that are commonplace now, such as electricity, transportation, aviation, telecommunications, computing, Internet, space travel, medicine, etc. would be unbelievable. Yet here they are, and most of the time we take them for granted.

From another perspective, these developments have been produced by people like Rossi, inventors and engineers who have had the intuition or inspiration to pursue an idea to make progress in a certain field, and with practical application and hard work have brought something new into reality. The inventors and discoverers often won’t consider themselves to be miracle workers, they simply are pursuing a practical goal.

But for people like me, I think there is something miraculous and awe-inspiring about it all.
