  • LENR Companies
    • Rossi, Leonardo Corp - E-Cat
      • Cold Fusion a year later - Just over a year ago I wrote about something that was incredibly exciting: A commercial cold fusion power generation system. Assuming it worked as claimed, the cold fusion power generation system would herald huge changes in not only the energy industry, but pretty much every aspect of the global economy. (Mark Gibbs, NetworkWorld; October 26, 2012)
        • Another Forbes Article of Cold Fusion - Forbes columnist Mark Gibbs has followed up his October 20th article about the recent Defkalion GT reports with a new article entitled 'Cold Fusion a Year Later'. It's a year now since Andrea Rossi carried out his semi-public test on the 1 MW plant in Bologna, and in this column Gibbs discusses how after,... (E-CatWorld; October 27, 2012)
      • "Big News" Speculation Thread [UPDATE: Don't expect news next week] - Since we have not much to go on regarding the "big news" that Andrea Rossi is teasing about, I thought it would be fun and possibly informative to try and guess what Andrea Rossi might be talking about when he says that after next week Leonardo Corp will not be the same. One approach... (E-CatWorld; October 25, 2012)
      • Technology
        • Resounding: revealed the catalyst for Rossi! - Sensational! Revealed the secret of the secret catalyst E-Cat of Andrea Rossi! With a lot of my smile and with the blessing of the same ing. Andrea Rossi make myself available to all of this preprint just arrivatomi from North America: (22Passi; October 24, 2012)
        • Hot Cat To Go Public - There is exciting news on the Journal of Nuclear Physics. Andrea Rossi announced that the Hot Cat plant we have all been excited about will start operations in February of next year! This is great news, and comes on the heels of a busy and exciting autumn season for the E-Cat. (ECatReport; November 1, 2012)
        • More on the First Hot Cat - This is just a quick post to follow up on the previous one. I was curious about where the first 1 MW Hot Cat plant might be installed, so I asked Andrea Rossi via email about it. Rossi had said that it would be made in the United States, and I wondered if that meant it would be installed... (E-CatWorld; November 1, 2012)
        • E-Cat Hot Cat 1 MW in operation beginning February 2013 - According to a Red Hot Cat 1 MW will be active for next February, although it is unknown the exact location of the future plant. (; October 31, 2012)
        • Rossi: First Hot Cat Plant to Start Operations in Feb 2013 - Here's a comment from Andrea Rossi that I think deserves its own thread. Yes, Leonardo Corp is very much powerful now. I can already say that the first 1 MW hot cat will go in operation within February 2013. It will not be a military application, therefore selected persons will be allowed to visit... (E-CatWorld; October 31, 2012)
        • The Number of Modules in the E-Cat - Dr. Joseph Fine is a frequent poster to the blog, and he recently asked Rossi how many E-Cat modules are used to build a 1 MW Hot Cat unit. His estimate was between 90 and 100 modules to form the full 1 MW unit. (ECatReport; October 26, 2012)

      • Patent
        • Patent Examiner on Rossi's E-Cat - Patent application of Andrea Rossi has been made public but documents associated with it remain unknown. It is therefore interesting to note that an application of e-cat patent has been published on October 19th showing a statement of the patent examiner related to the amount of information provided by Leonardo Corporation, the Italian inventor's US based company. Here is an excerpt of the statement (ECatReport; October 30, 2012)
        • eCat EU Patent Rejection – Updated - Update – As though to head off any accusations about a cold fusion block at the EU Patent Office, Piantelli has been informed that his patent will be granted. This appears to have happened in August of this year but it is interesting to note that Rossi's… (
          • European Union Rejects ecat Patent Application - The Patent Office of the European Union (EU) has reportedly rejected Andrea Rossi's patent application for his ecat low energy nuclear reaction (LENR) process. The ecatnews blog has posted a letter from the EU Patent Office to Rossi that Rossi's patent does not meet the requirements of the European Patent Convention. (EnergyCatalyzer3; October 31, 2012)
        • Leonardo Patent Report Publication Scheduled for Nov 21? [UPDATED -- EU Examiner Dissatisfied] - Thanks to E-Cat World reader Torbjφrn for bringing attention to the European Patent Register report on Leonardo Corporation's "Method and Apparatus for Carrying Out Nickel and Hydrogen Exothermal Reactions" patent application.

        • E-Cat: the patent application has been rejected? - The international patent office would have found shortcomings in the application for the E-Cat Rossi, who remain only four months to remedy. ( October 29, 2012)
      • Business
        • Prometeon Goes Live - Prometeon is the Italian licensee for Andrea Rossi's E-Cats and Hot Cats, and it has now gone live on the internet. (ECatReport; November 1, 2012)
          Prometeon is now marketing 5 different E-Cat products at its website, and is developing the site in English as well as Italian. The 5 products are:
          1. 1 MW electrical plant: produces up to 120 degrees C, especially useful in areas where there is not gas supply. Valuable for producing some of the most energy efficient heat on the planet.
          2. 1 MW gas plant: This is the same plant mentioned above, except it is capable of operating with gas power rather than electricity. This plant offers even greater savings on energy bills.
          3. Industrial E-Cat: to be marketed by summer of 2013. An Electric Stand Alone unit that will produce surplus electricity that will keep the E-Cat running in self sustained mode, after the initial power up. This is recommended for utility companies and industrial applications.
          4. Hot Cat: The first one to be delivered in February of next year. A 1MW plant capable of producing high temperatures and producing electricity. Recommended for industrial and utility companies.
          5. Thermal-Electric E-Cat: This plant is under development, and will provide heat and electricity in industrial applications.

        • Leonardo Corp Staff - Rossi informed poster Joseph A. that he has 27 engineers currently working on the E-Cat technology being developed in his labs. Some of the engineers involved work for the suppliers. He also said that about 70% of the work force lives in North America. (ECatReport; October 29, 2012)
        • New Plant On Its Way And Help For Children - Stefano proposed to Rossi that while the military customer that has a working 1 MW plant may not be forthcoming with information, perhaps Rossi could donate a unit to a charity, and invite them to share their views on the usefulness of the unit (ECatReport; October 27, 2012)
        • E-Cat: online site where to order Prometeon - Is online the official website of Aldo Proia, the Prometeon, the only Italian licensee for the E-Cat of Andrea Rossi. (; October 31, 2012)

      • Scientific American Article
        • Genie in a Bottle: The Case Against Cold Fusion - It's starting to look like Debunking Week at the cocktail party. A couple of weeks ago, my SciAm Scibling Joanne Manaster alerted me to a new film called The Believers, detailing the cold fusion controversy. I can't speak for the quality of the film, because I haven't seen it, but as someone who has covered physics for (*cough*) going on 20 years, I well remember the controversy, and have followed it off and on over the years.

      • New Documentary Understates the Reality of Cold Fusion - The documentary is ultra-cautious, and actually understates the certainty that researchers now share about cold fusion.  Whether the phenomenon can be tamed and captured as a transformational new technology remains to be seen; but  the physical effect is now undeniable. (OpEdNews; October 28, 2012)
    • From the BBC Archive : Too Close to the Sun - Here's a very interesting video which I have recently come across, but was created back in 1994 for the BBC Horizons TV program.

"It is harder to crack a prejudice than an atom." // "I'd rather be an optimist and a fool than a pessimist and right." -- Albert Einstein

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.

When you're two steps ahead,
you're a crackpot."
