Dear Andrea,
1. I know trolls are marginalizing your work and try to blacken you reputation. Now with the approaching introduction of the Ecat SKL, has their activity increased?
2. Do you receive threats that demand not to introduce the Ecat?
3. Is the fact that you keep your location secret linked to these threads?
4. Maybe your open communication on JoNP contributes to these threats, but may also be a a way of protecting yourself, can you say something about that?
Thanks for answering our questions, kind regards, Gerard

Gerard McEk:
1. I don’t know: I do not have time to read stupidities, but the fact that our competitors are paying trolls to disparage our work with their rock and troll corroborates the evidence of the fact that they fear us: nobody would spend money and/or time to disparage something that does not worth the while
2. yes
3. yes
4. I think my communication here helps us
Warm Regards,

Trolls are nothing new when it comes to the E-Cat. Andrea Rossi has attracted attacks almost from the moment he introduced the E-Cat back in 2011. You can find trolling behavior online on almost any topic, and I think that Rossi has pretty much ignored them over the years and just concentrated on his work.

Threats and demands not to introduce the E-Cat might be a bit more concerning to him, depending on the nature and source of the threats. It is not hard to imagine some parties who have vested interests in the energy industry becoming quite worried if it turns out that the E-Cat SKL really works. I would expect Rossi and his partners are being cautious and circumspect, knowing that they have a technology with the potential to disrupt the status quo in significant ways.

Video: Roger Shawyer on EmDrive Fundamentals

Thanks to a reader for sharing the following video in which Roger Shawyer, discusses fundamental principles behind his invention, the EmDrive. The Emdrive is a claimed exhaust-less thruster that he believes can revolutionize space travel because there is no requirement for craft to carry fuel.

Shawyer believes that EmDrive can be explained by conventional physics, but because its development and testing has been “shrouded in secrecy”, due to development by governmental agencies, and many test results have not made it into the public domain yet, it remains a controversial topic. He believes that more information will be made public over the coming years, and thus he feels it is important to provide the information in this video to the public.

Star Scientific Wins Emerging Technology of the Year Award for Hydrogen Energy Release Optimiser (HERO)

Thanks to a reader for sending the following information about Australian Company Star Scientific

Star Scientific claims to have developed a ‘secret catalyst’ which they describe as follows:

“Within minutes of the hydrogen interacting with the catalyst, HERO® safely reaches temperatures of more than 700 degrees Celsius.

The larger the surface area of the catalyst and the more hydrogen available, the more heat is generated. The only by-product is pure water.”

They state that this heat can be to drive turbines in power plants, supply district heating, and provide off-grid power.

Australian hydrogen research and development company Star Scientific has won the 2020 Global Energy Awards’ Emerging Technology of the Year.

Andrew Horvath, Global Group Chairman, Star Scientific Limited said this was a proud moment for the entire team at Star Scientific Limited who have worked passionately to develop HERO® to what it is today.

“We were chosen as finalists from some 300 entries from over 36 countries, acknowledged for ingenuity and commercialisation potential. The award recognises that HERO® has created its own category in the energy sector, primed to address a gap that will significantly change global hydrogen use.

“Star Scientific is a proudly owned Australian company, with a global reach and aspirations. Our technology brings about a seismic shift toward hydrogen as the energy choice of the future. While green hydrogen is enjoying significant global attention at present, there is a gap in its deployment for industrial purposes. We believe this is where HERO® will emerge as the final link in the hydrogen chain.

Non-Official Fan Made Guide to How SAFIRE Works

The following post and graphic has been submitted by Aureon Addict.

Despite the myriad of support systems that allow The SAFIRE Project reactor to operate, the fundamental phenomenon and the basic setup which produces transmutations, excess energy production, and other anomalies is remarkably simple.

A wide range of anode materials and variations of the gaseous atmosphere work. Likewise, the configuration of electrodes can vary. The main key is to provide the conditions that allow for the plasma to self organize to the greatest extent possible. Despite the fact many different configurations may work, the specific materials and conditions they use are available to anyone who takes the time to review the extensive amount of information that has been released in a variety of different forms including videos, documents, interviews, patents, photographs, and more.

As noted in the above graphic, one heavy Tungsten alloy they have had success with is W-Ni-Fe. More interestingly, they seem to be utilizing varying ratios of Nitrogen and Hydrogen gas in the fairly low pressure range of 10-20 Torr. Utilizing direct current with low ripple they ignite the plasma and while keeping the voltage fairly constant they derestrict the current and proceed through a number of different plasma regimes. After producing the regime with the large, broad double layers, they increase the current further until they collapse into a singular double layer very close to the surface of the anode. This extremely bright and dense double layer has an intense voltage gradient of up to a thousand volts. It is in this regime that the transmutations and excess energy production occurs. The proof is obvious: elements appearing in the atmosphere of the reactor, on the surface of the anode, and all the way through to the center of the anode that were not there previously.

The question then becomes how are the transmutations and excess energy being produced? The SAFIRE Project tries not to be bound to any one theory. However, I would like to speculate that the conditions within the innermost double layer with a high voltage gradient allow for a superconductive layer of coherent matter to form which is capable of manipulating matter on the most fundamental level and interacting with the superfluidic medium of space, the aether. Regardless of the mechanism, the excess energy and transmutations are real so this technology must be utilized for the good of humanity.

Brilliant Light Power Publishes Calorimetry Report Showing Significant Power Gain in SunCell Runs

There is a new report on the Brilliant Light Power  website titled “Water Bath Calorimetry (120420): Report “. The report was written by Mark Nansteel, Ph.D. who is described as a heat transfer expert.

The 22 page report describes two water bath calorimetry tests done on December 4th at BLP headquarters in New Jersey.

The link to the document is here:

Microsoft Word – Report on Water Bath Calorimetry (120420).docx (

Dr. Nansteel has written a very thorough report on how the testing was done, and how results were measured. The main conclusions are presented in this graphic, which shows the energy gain in the experiment, and compares it to similar tests carried out in November — showing a significant improvement:

On the Brilliant Light Power website they state that they limited run time to get accurate calorimetry, but that the SunCell is capable of running indefinitely. They also write:

Moreover, with a Brayton cycle turbine addition, the SunCell® gain is sufficient to serve as a stand-alone power source of at least 100 kW thermal with no grid or fuel connection and no CO2 or pollution of any kind.  Over 250 kW and 10-fold gain have been achieved with this design by changing the operational parameters.  We are developing control systems to run at these extreme power density levels without occurring limitations of the cooling system that could lead to damage to the SunCell.

UN Report: Urges Low-Carbon COVID Pandemic Recovery

The United Nations Environment Programme has issued a new report titled Emissions Gap Report 2020: An Inflection Point, which predicts that despite a dip in carbon emissions due to the impact of the coronavirus pandemic, there is an urgent need for a green recovery due to the threat of dangerous temperature rises.

Here is a summary:

Despite a dip in greenhouse gas emissions from the COVID-19 economic slowdown, the world is still heading for a catastrophic temperature rise above 3°C this century – far beyond the goals of the Paris Agreement. But UNEP’s Emissions Gap points to hope in a green pandemic recovery and growing commitments to net-zero emissions.

It would seem like the environment is ripe for adoption of new energy technologies that produce no carbon emissions. Solar, wind, and nuclear are the choices that seem to be most in favor these days, but each has its drawbacks when it comes trying to solve the energy problem quickly. Andrea Rossi is surely aware that there is a need that he can fill with the E-Cat SKL, once he is able to introduce it.

Vattenfall to Explore Possibility of Small Nuclear Reactors for Estonia (Press Release)

Thanks to ECW reader Layman for posting a link to a press release from Swedish power company Vattenfall whose stated goal is “to enable fossil free living within one generation”.

“Vattenfall advances its Estonian cooperation on Small Modular Reactors”

Energia to explore the possibilities for Small Modular Reactor (SMR) deployment in Estonia. Building upon the present collaboration the parties have now signed a Letter-of-Intent to further expand their co-operation.

”Recently, we’ve seen a growing interest in small-scale nuclear reactors. Vattenfall’s intent with this project and in stepping up our cooperation is to support Fermi Energia to achieve a successful European SMR initiative. We will now deepen our studies in specific work areas and extend our collaboration until the submission of an application for a decision in principle by the Estonian Parliament. This will provide know-how to Vattenfall in an area where we’re building up our competence,” says Torbjörn Wahlborg, Senior Executive Vice President Generation at Vattenfall.

The collaboration will further explore the maturity of SMR technology and the prospects for deployment of one or several such reactors in Estonia. In addition to Vattenfall the initiative involves other European energy companies. All participants gain practical SMR technology insights and contribute their own experience.

“We’re happy to cooperate with a leading European utility operating nuclear power that is committed to reaching decarbonization in one generation. Higher safety, simplicity, lower capital cost and smaller size make nuclear a realistic option also for Estonia. This is recognized by the Estonian Government in the forming of a governmental nuclear energy working group. Innovative nuclear energy deployment is very challenging, but it is equally challenging to reach true carbon neutrality in all sectors of a Nordic society,” says Kalev Kallemets, CEO of Fermi Energia.

“Our cooperation with Fermi Energia leads us to a better comprehension in one of many areas of development. Vattenfall will share its previous experience of nuclear power plant construction. Our particular work areas within this agreement are how to structure newbuild financing, construction and costing, HR development, SMR operator and staff training and supply chain developments,” says Mats Ladeborn, Head of Fleet Development within BA Generation.

High CO2 emissions
The fact that Estonia has the highest CO2 emissions per produced kWh of electricity among EU member states is a rationale for the cooperation. The nation’s electricity generation is highly dependent on oil shale whereas Sweden has among the world’s lowest CO2 emissions and practically fossil free electricity generation due to a combination of hydro and nuclear power, wind power and solar PV.

The Estonian government has decided to form a national working group on nuclear energy to assess the introduction of nuclear power generation. The group will analyze – with the help of foreign experts – the suitability of introducing nuclear energy for ensuring the security and safety of Estonia’s energy supply. The working group will be convened this year and has a two-year working plan.

Fermi Energia has begun based on relevant study a formal dialogue with two municipalities on conditions that will hopefully lead to their agreement of being included in National Designated Spatial Planning (NDSP). The latter is the formal government led process including strategic environmental impact assessment of choosing the suitable site. Initiation of a planning process for potential SMR technologies justifies the formation of a regulatory system suitable for SMR deployment.

“Nuclear power comes with very low CO2 emissions and may contribute to the reduction of fossil fuel usage within the EU. The evolution of SMR technology looks promising and it is natural for us to follow technical developments within all sources of power generation that we utilize ourselves. A transition of Estonian electricity production would be a significantly positive climate measure for the EU as a whole,” says Mats Ladeborn.

The Drivers of Disruption

Thanks to reader Curious Swede for the following comment, along with the linked report and video.

When transmission costs becomes higher than the production cost of power the transmission business is dead. Companies will start producing their own power an thereby decentralize the grid. In some areas this is about to happen already as the price for solar is coming down. Search for “rethinkx” for an interesting document explaining disruptions currently happening and the drivers for them.

Q Hydrogen Announces Clean Hydrogen Power Plant

Thanks to ECW reader Jag for sending the following:
which in part says

“Clear hydrogen is produced by extracting hydrogen from water, like green hydrogen, but rather than using electrolysis to “zap” the hydrogen away from the oxygen, a new technology does so using water that is subjected to external influences coupled with extremely rapid variations in pressure, temperature and motion. There is no heat, and more importantly, no carbon used or generated in the process.
This allows for hydrogen production at significantly reduced cost, without the carbon impact of conventional methods”

On the website of the company ( there is the further statement which says:
“Our newest commercial implementation in New Hampshire will be the world’s first power plant fueled by clean, economical Q Hydrogen. We will utilize the Q Hydrogen Generator, which will produce sufficient low-cost hydrogen to fuel the facility’s initial generating capacity of around seven megawatts. Someday, up to 100 megawatts may be generated at this facility on a total industrial footprint of approximately five acres”
All that intrigued me but I was not convinced until I looked at their team at
