11/14/2011 to 11/20/2011

Interesting article in the Greek press about Rossi, the e-Cat and Rossi’s former business pattern Defkalion.  Interesting tidbits include a report that Rossi first approached Prof. Francesco Piantelli, the man first reported to use nickel-hydrogen to produce cold fusion (circa 1989).  Piantelli refused to help, so Rossi then asked for the help of Pianteilli’s long-time research partner, Prof. Sergio Focardi.  Focardi agreed and is now Rossi’s partner, although he keeps a lower profile.  Another interesting tidbit is that the CEO of  Defkalion claims that Rossi’s e-Cat was unstable in August, at the time of the breakup.  Unfortunately, the article contains numerous factual errors so the entire piece needs to be taken with a grain of salt.

Dear Mr. Rossi,

Reading available observations of your operation,.. it seems that your company is very much still organized as a small start up company with you personally engaged in every small decision and issue, no matter how insignificant it may appear.. Of course with the expected exponential growth the current Management is not sustainable.

When will you get your company organized to meet the challenge??.. You will of cause loose control over the small and medium size issues.

Dear H.Hansson:
Thank you for your suggestion, but I think we are going through the right strategy. If wrong, we will see in the battlefield.

Of note, MIT was initially complicit in the suppression of the reality of cold fusion (see MIT and Cold Fusion) and now they are offering classes and holding regular seminars on the matter.

***************************************************************

Andrea Rossi associate and respected scientist Prof. Sergio Focardi believes that the reaction the e-Cat produces is FUSION.

Sergio Focardi: The mechanism that gives rise to the process is a nuclear fusion reaction (among a core of nickel and a hydrogen nucleus). We reach this conclusion for the following reasons:

  • 1) the components that give rise to the process are nickel and hydrogen;

  • 2) reaction produces copper in the heart of which is obtained by adding a proton (hydrogen nucleus) the nucleus of nickel;

  • 3) the amount of energy released in the process is much higher than the energy of chemical reactions that have occurred and requires a nuclear process ;

  • 4) during the process, the system emits gamma rays (shieldable with small thicknesses of lead) that are the signature of a nuclear process.

Dear Mr Rossi,

Have you been (or felt) threatened during the Ecat development process? I hope not

We need to get a few beers into you to loosen your tongue.

Dr. Christos Stremmenos, scientist, former ambassador of Greece to Italy and associate of Andrea Rossi, has recently made some comments on the blog of Italian Daniel Passerni about the University of Bolonga’s seeming reluctance to pursue the research contract between itself and Andrea Rossi.  For those unfamiliar with his style, I need to point out that he often uses language and terms that are an odd mix between his training a scientist and his experience as an ambassador. The wording also seems awkward in that he is a native Greek speaker, speaking in Italian that has been translated to English.  However, if one can wade through that, he has some interesting things to say as he is a learned and intelligent man.

Dear Friends

I am puzzled to say the least, according to the vicissitudes of the contract with the Company UniBo EFA (E-Cat, Rossi) … and the quote of Daniel “… the pressures that affected the University of Bologna to disengage from the project” … !…?… [Editor’s note, the exact pace at which it refers Stremmenos “… there are certain people, or rather groups of interest, which in addition to spreading mud everywhere, using even the journalists who know and / or may affect, are placing the ‘ University of Bologna to pressure to disengage from the contract with Rossi, who is activated or not. “]

Since in this University from the early fifties I was born and grew up scientifically, I would do certain assessments: my great masters of that time as Professor Bonino and others, have taught me that the University has the main task of transmitting knowledge of current and create new …

I do not think missing now these small funds for research on a topic of this scope … …!

The involution and the deviation from the vocation renaissance of this great University, the prevalence of poor bureaucratic criteria in science, management of funds in small groups and departments other causes degenerative diseases, prevent the open and generous … to new scientific horizons …

I enclose my personal experience that I hope is acceptable to your readers, dating back to the ’90s when in parallel with Sergio Focardi we carried out this research in the middle of the incredulity of my colleagues (it was fashionable …!) e. .. tolerance of Academic Bodies.

So much for history … and hope does not happen again …

Also in the above blog is a comprehensive article about cold fusion written by Dr. Stremmenos, which is available in PDF form here.  It is in Italian and as of yet I can find no English translation.  Google Translate will not process it.

Hi everybody, this is the first time Actually I’m leaving a comment on this blog but I’ve been Following The intricate debate for a long time so far.
Should not I guess I do what I’m about to do, but I think That this technology needs more credibility ..
And in fact I Can Assure You That That everybody is wondering about the mysterious partners with Whose name starts with N is the NRL .. The Naval reserch lab .. I know it for sure coz I have friends Involved in the agreement at the thing …

Defkalion Updates Press Release link

We have to clarify that two of the pictures in our November 14th Press Release are from a low-end Hyperion single reactor pre-industrial version7 prototype. Several components on it (isolations, security components, anti-explosive protection, casing, functional I/O etc) have been deliberately omitted.

Final products for mass production, that will be released following their prototypes certification, do have some minor differences in engineering/architecture and their assembly quality. A full specs sheet as well as product’s basic design and their scheduled third party testing will be released as per our announcement of November 14th.

Thank you

Dear Mr. Rossi,

We here in Brooklyn are very eager for the success of the E-Cat. Many of us would be very interested in the installation and service component of this technology in the New York City area. As you are aware, the employment crisis in the United States could accommodate the many green jobs that your technology could create. Thanks for keeping us all informed of your progress.

Continued success,

Gerard

Dear Gerard:
One of the main goals of mine is to generate jobs in the USA. I will, you bet. Just stay in touch. Next week I will have a very important work to do in this sense.
Warm Regards,
A.R.

Dear Mr. Rossi,

We make GREEN detergents and are growing even in these dangerous economic times.

My company relies on GREEN technology and a GREEN aware customer base. Our customer distribution reaches all 50 states and several countries in Europe and the Far East

I have a mfg plant and warehouse to heat. Not only would your e-cat devices save me money, but the advertising value of our using your technology would greatly increase our sales and spread information about your company to many parts of the world.

We hope we can afford to get involved at this early stage of development.
