NyTeknik Validates Rossi's Energy Catalyzer
The Swedish website Ny Teknik has been providing detailed coverage of Andrea Rossi's Energy Catalyzer technology. Engineer Mats Lewan of Ny Teknik has released positive test results and video from two additional tests of the E-Cat. The validations keep on coming!

Italian engineer and inventor Andrea Rossi
has developed a game changing "cold fusion" technology that has been validated via several tests performed by multiple third parties. One of the most recent tests of the E-Cat was attended by the former chair of the Swedish Skeptics Society, Professor Hanno Essιn. With the assistance of Professor Sven Kullander, the testing successfully validated the Energy Catalyzer technology. An
about their validation was featured here at PESN.
Now, Engineer Mats Lewan from the Swedish publication, Ny Teknik, which means "New Technology", published weekly for over 40 years, has released results from two separate tests of the E-Cat he performed in Bologna, Italy. These latest results confirm those from previous testing, that the system outputs at least 6 times more energy than it consumes.
In addition to being a writer for Ny Teknik, Mats Lewan is also quite technically proficient. He holds a Master of Science degree in Engineering Physics from the Swedish Royal Institute of Technology. After reading through the many comments posted in response to Ny Teknik's coverage of the the E-Cat, Mats made sure that some of the most frequently voiced concerns would be addressed with his testing.
The first of these two tests was performed on April 19th, 2011 and the second was performed on April 28th. During both tests, multiple precautions were made to reduce any uncertainty in the measurements taken. First, the ammeter that was utilized to measure the electrical current input into the system (which powers the control circuitry and resistors that heat the reactor) was precisely calibrated. This is important to get an accurate measurement of total power consumption. Secondly, the water flow input was measured by weighing. This is more precise than simply measuring the flow rate from a spigot, which could potentially vary in volume over time. Third, the temperature probe was calibrated by submersing it in boiling water. The temperature of the boiling water was measured as being 99.6 degrees centigrade. This same probe later detected a temperature of 100.5 degrees centigrade when placed in the path of steam leaving the device. The significance is that due to the temperature of the steam being over 100 degrees centigrade, it is more certain the steam was dry (all the water being in the gas phase) and not wet (being mixed with a mist of liquid water). Any liquid water in the steam could throw off the calculations being used in the testing. Finally, any wireless transfer of energy was ruled out by checking the room for increased electromagnetic fields from 5 Hz to 3 GHz.
In the first test on April 19th, an E-Cat unit with a reactor volume of approximately 50cc and an officially rated capacity of 2.5 kilowatts consumed an average of 354 watts (7x overunity). The same unit produced an average output of 2.6 kilowatts. In the second test on April 28th, (utilizing the same sized reactor as in the first test) the system consumed an average of 378 watts and produced an average of 2.3 kilowatts (6x OU). This represents a huge gain of energy that could not be due to measurement error.
A full report with all the details can be found here
for the first test and here
for the second test. It should be noted that in both tests, the amount of hydrogen placed in the reactor was half a gram or less. It is impossible that the excess energy produced in these two tests could have been produced by any chemical reaction produced by the burning of hydrogen. As Mats concluded, the heat seems to be produced by some unknown nuclear reaction!
A video taken during one of the experiments is embedded in the Ny Teknik article
about these two experiments. A walk through of the entire setup is performed. Mats takes the time to detail every component of the small E-Cat units. Again, the 2.5 kW reactor vessel is only 50 cubic centimeters or 3.2 cubic inches in volume. The stainless steel reactor vessel is truly miniscule, and appears only as a small bulge in the copper pipe that surrounds it. Most of the volume of the system is taken up by the copper pipe, insulation, and control electronics. Despite this extra volume, several units are shown sitting on the same small table top. The fact such a great walk through video of the test setup was made is very refreshing. It gives readers a good intuitive feel for how the test was carried out, which may have been lacking in previous reports.
The pictures posted with the story are also helpful. One of the images shows the apparatus being lifted to check for hidden wires or power sources. Another image of a "naked" E-Cat shows a unit without the insulation to prevent heat loss and lead shielding. All of these visual aids (the video walk through and the pictures) really make this Ni Teknik story stand out.
Despite the repeated validations of Rossi's technology, there still are some skeptics remaining who are critical about the technology. Peter Ekstrφm who is a lecturer at the Department of Nuclear Physics at Lund University in Sweden, states that he believes the whole thing is a scam. He thinks it will be exposed in less than one year's time. Physics professor Kjell Aleklett of Uppsala University in Sweden is slightly less skeptical. He still thinks it could be a scam, but thinks it could also turn out to be something no one could imagine.
Interestingly, Andrea Rossi has announced that an E-Cat unit will be sent to both the University of Uppsala and the University of Stockholm for extended testing. Perhaps after working with the device themselves, skeptics such as these two will eventually change their minds.
As time goes by, more and more validations of the Energy Catalyzer are taking place. This technology seems to be the real deal and totally authentic, which makes the wait for the opening of the one megawatt plant in Xanthi, Greece even more tedious and exciting. Interestingly, Andrea Rossi has stated that there are currently 105 E-Cat modules in continuous operation. He claims these are modules that will be used in the one megawatt plant, and he is personally constructing additional units every day!
The one megawatt plant will be operated by Defkalion Green Technologies Inc. that has received a license from Andrea Rossi to sell, license, and manufacture industrialized commercially applicable products using the Andrea Rossi Energy Catalyzer with global exclusivity rights; except the Americas.
