E-Cat Weekly -- February 9, 2012

This past week saw at least 21 stories, including from 4 mainstream sources; addressing robotized factory progress, mention of a new partner, expected price modification, Defkalion progress, and several stories on cold fusion in general.

Full Disclosure:
PES Network has a business relationship with Andrea Rossi.

By Sterling D. Allan
Pure Energy Systems News

Once again we bring you a compilation of various news items about Andrea Rossi's E-Cat that have emerged since our February 2 compilation.

Mainstream (or large alternative) news sources are indicated with the yellow highlight.

  • Products
    • Rossi Says E-Cat is Absolutely Safe — "There Will Never Be' Gamma Rays Emitted - Safety concerns regarding the E-Cat have to be of primary concern to Andrea Rossi as he pursues his commercialization strategy. His explicit goal is to install E-Cats in millions of homes to provide heat an electricity — in order to do this there will have to be assurances to customers and regulators that the devices pose no safety risk... (E-CatWorld; February 9, 2012)
    • What Happens Inside the ECat. Easy Home Refills - More and more questions and suppositions on how the ECat works occur every day. In another set of q&a with his readers at the Journal, Andrea Rossi revealed a couple more bits of… (ECatReport; February 6, 2012)
    • Rossi Now States that 10 kW E-Cat Will Cost Between $600 and $800 - We've had a few different estimates from Andrea Rossi on the cost of his technology. Last year he predicted a 10 kW E-Cat would cost between $1000 and $1500; more recently he has said that he hoped it could be as low as $400-500 per unit. The latest cost estimate is now somewhere in...  (E-CatWorld; February 8, 2012) (And

    • Societal Changes With The Arrival Of E-Cats - Society is never a constant. What today is accepted as a norm, yesterday was considered to be an abnormality, and chances are it may be considered a passed phase in the future. Changes… (ECatReport; February 8, 2012)
  • Introductory

    • The dawn of the energy age - Well, strap yourself in, because I'm about to take crazy to a whole new level. A new power source that will provide heat, cooling and electricity for your house for less than $100 per year. It will produce no waste of any kind: No radiation, no greenhouse gases, not even ash. It will replace oil, gas, and coal power plants as well as solar panels and windmills. (SouthCoastToday; February 09, 2012)
    • Andrea Rossi: E-Cat - It is difficult, if not impossible, to draw a scientific conclusion about Andrea Rossi's E-cat device. No independent verification test has been performed and published results from Rossi have been incomplete. Also, some of his reported results have changed over time and several of the reported phenomena are inconsistent with accepted physics. (EarthTechInternational; February ~3, 2012)
    • andrea rossi e-cat cold fusion - here's a link to an article about a cold fusion reactor designer and product.  the newest one produces 400C degree steam.  reaction by exposing nickel powder to pressurized hydrogen gas, along with a proprietary catalyst that adds only 10% to the cost of the nickle. (ThomHartmann blog; February 1, 2012)
  • Applications

  • Commentary 

    • Acoustic Fusion Touted as Green, Cheap, Virtually Inexhaustible Energy Source - Last year, Andrea Rossi's energy catalyzer, or E-Cat, created buzz as it claims to present an alternative energy source that is environmentally clean and free. The E-Cat is a cold fusion device that fuses hydrogen atoms with nickel to transform it into copper. (InternationalBusinessTimes; February 7, 2012)
  • Other Cold Fusion Competitor News
    (Typically also mention E-Cat)
    • Defkalion
      • 7 Well Known Labs To Test Hyperion - Defkalion continues backing up to that corner. Hopefully, it is deliberate. Answers will not be in the mail tomorrow but verification (or otherwise) is creeping forward. translated from the greek corner by "drew' (Thx!) [link]  So far we have received applications and we are in the process… (ECatNews; February 6, 2012) (And nickelpower)
      • Defkalion Promises Flow Calorimetry For Additional Hyperion Tests - With proof of Andrea Rossi's eCat likely some time in coming, eyes and hopes are turned to his competitor and arch enemy Defkalion GT. Promising to deliver a series of independent tests of their Hyperion systems, they appear to be painting themselves into a corner where the… (ECatNews; February 4, 2012)
  • General Cold Fusion
    • Cold Fusion is Here, It's Real, and Its Time has Come - Steve Windisch summarizes recent validations of the science of cold fusion, including Hagelstein and Swartz's January 31 demonstration at MIT; NASA's interest and involvement; and a review of the science in general. He also reviews some of they present key players, including Rossi and Arata. He looks at the changes cold fusion will bring to society. (OpEdNews; February 2, 2012)
    • New Developments in LENR World - There have been some exciting new developments the world of Low Energy Nuclear Reaction recently. Interestingly enough none of these involve Andrea Rossi and his ecat LENR device. Brillouin Energy Corp the US company trying to develop an LENR boiler is trying to raise additional capital to fund its work at SRI International an independent research and development organization in Menlo Park, California.

    • A Few Further Details About MIT Cold Fusion Event — [UPDATE -- New Data Available] - There has been considerable interest in the news earlier this week published in Cold Fusion Times of the demonstration of cold fusion at a short course taught by Dr. Peter Hagelstein at MIT. Dr. Mitchell Swartz of JET Energy Inc. was invited to present to the class, and Cold Fusion Times (which is owned... (E-CatWorld; February 4, 2012)
    • Cold Fusion Now video from Sept. 26, 2012
      • Cold Fusion Advocacy Video Published in Time For Election Season - Ruby Carat, publisher of the Cold Fusion Now web site has released a video called Cold Fusion Five: 5 World Changing Benefits of Cold Fusion Technology which provides basic education about cold fusion/LENR technology, promoting it as a cheap, clean and viable energy source, and Andrea Rossi's E-Cat is featured as being an immediate application of Cold Fusion. Viewers are urged to talk about the topic to their elected officials. (E-CatWorld; February 3, 2012)
    • Statement by Dr. Joseph Zawodny on LENR - While I do work for NASA, I do not speak for them. As for what people are trying to read into this video, specifically my use of the word "demonstrated', it is my professional opinion that the production of excess energy has been demonstrated when the results of the last 20+ years of experimentation are evaluated. I did not say, reliable, useful, commercially viable, or controllable. (E-CatWorld; February 3, 2012)
    • More Respectability for LENR: Now to be Discussed at CERN Colloquium - Shortly after NASA's web site has featured a video promoting LENR as a possible future energy solution, we now find that CERN (The European Organization for Nuclear Research) is providing a forum for the subject at a colloquium to be held on March 22 entitled, "Overview of Theoretical and Experimental Progress in Low Energy...

NOTE: NOTE: We have replaced the previous Echo comment service with Disqus. The old Echo database of comments has now been imported into Disqus. The old comments are loaded in date received order. This will mean that if say, someone posted a reply a week after a comment was posted, then it will appear before the original post does (in other words jumbling up will occur in the normal Parent/Child pattern of replies) and comments will not follow a logical order. However, comments you have made/make in Disqus since the changeover date will appear in the normal order of appearance.

ADVISORY: With any technology, you take a high risk to invest significant time or money unless (1) independent testing has thoroughly corroborated the technology, (2) the group involved has intellectual rights to the technology, and (3) the group has the ability to make a success of the endeavor.
All truth passes through three stages:
   First, it is ridiculed;
   Second, it is violently opposed; and
   Third, it is accepted as self-evident.

-- Arthur Schopenhauer (1788-1860)

    "When you're one step ahead
of the crowd you're a genius.
When you're two steps ahead,
you're a crackpot."

-- Rabbi Shlomo Riskin, (Feb. 1998)
