LENR-to-Market Weekly -- November 22, 2012

Two years prior to Pons and Fleischmann, Steven E. Jones used the term "cold fusion" in relation to muon-catalyzed nuclear fusion.

Highlights this week include: Steven E. Jones' replica and comment on "fusion"; three upcoming LENR events in next three weeks; new E-cat design input runs on natural gas; keeping an eye on Fleischman Memorial Project replication of Celani cell; shale oil extraction could be assisted by LENR; unintended consequences.

HAPPY THANKSGIVING IN USA (unless your Native American)

  • LENR Companies
    • Rossi, Leonardo Corp - E-Cat
      • Technology
        • Rossi has had to Radically Design the Ecat it now runs on Natural Gas - Andrea Rossi and his team at the Leonardo Corp are working on a one ton gas-fired Ecat low energy nuclear reaction (LENR) device. In a post on his blog Rossi stated that the prototype for the hot ecat device will weigh around one ton (presumably one metric ton), it'll be two meters long, one meter wide and one meter in high. The device will have to be tested for one to two months of regular operation before Rossi makes it public. (EnergyCatalyzer3; November 18, 2012)
        • E-Cats And Radio Frequencies - A question has arisen on the Journal of Nuclear Physics, Andrea Rossi's blog, as to whether or not radio frequencies are involved in the functioning of the domestic E-Cat, or if any E-Cat will affect radio frequencies in the area in which the unit operates. Rossi responded that the E-Cats are all shielded from radio waves, so that radio frequencies will not interfere with the functioning of the units. (ECatReport; November 16, 2012)
        • Charging the E-Cat - Joseph Fine recently asked Andrea Rossi some very interesting questions about the E-Cat's fuel canisters. Rossi has stated that there is little or no transmutation taking place in the fuel of the E-Cat. This leads one to wonder just why the fuel cells need to be replaced. (ECatReport; November 20, 2012)
          • Bill Donovan (involved in Australian license) theorizes that the primary reaction is the conversion of hydrogen to deuterium (non-radioactive), and that the build-up of deuterium quenches the reaction over time, hence the need to refresh the mixture every six months. -- Sterling 
          • E-Cat, the charging will last longer than 6 months (Italian) - Andrea Rossi unleashed upon some characteristics of refills E-Cat which, he said, could have lasting well over 6 months. (; November 21, 2012)
        • No Changes In Isotopic Distribution of E-Cats - Steven Karels recently asked Rossi about the isotopic distribution. He wanted to know if there is a change in the fuel or ash levels. Rossi responded that they had noticed traces of the fuel and ash levels of isotopic distribution, but that they were minute. (ECatReport; November 19, 2012)
      • Applications
        • Shale Oil And The U.S. - The vast deposits of shale oil in the United States have breathed new life into the American oil industry. Through "fracking", oil companies can liquefy the oil in shale and bring it to the surface. The fracking is done by raising the heat of the shale, causing it to fracture into gas, oil, and various solids. This provides a great opportunity for the oil industry to benefit from an alternative source of energy – the Hot Cat.  (ECatReport; November 19, 2012)
        • Shale Gas Will be the Next Bubble to Pop: An Interview with Arthur Berm - James Stafford: Is there any technology, any development you see coming in the future that can help us get where we need to be? Is conservation really the only answer or do you have any hopes for some of the alternative energy technologies, such as solar or, even, some of these more advanced technologies such as Andrea Rossi's E-cat machine? (EnergyBangla; November 19, 2012)
      • Intelligence »E-cat: close the scientific revolution of cold fusion? (Interview interview with Italian licensee, Aldo Proia) - ... Our intent is to follow the developments of the situation, and see if the E-Cat works, and then if he can change history, otherwise everything will remain as always and will continue to bombard. (; November 21, 2012)
      • New Poll: Optimistic or Pessimistic Regarding E-Cat? - It's been a while since news of the E-Cat came on the scene, and we are still waiting to see the commercialization of E-Cat technology. I'm interested to see how the readership of this site stands in terms of the level of optimism or pessimism regarding the eventual success of E-Cat technology as a... (E-CatWorld; November 18, 2012)

    • Hunt's campus in Pine River Minnesota

      Fleischmann Memorial Project,
      • MFMP Test Run to Keep an Eye On - I heard from Bob Greenyer this morning who said that it might be worth keeping an eye on the Celani cell test that the Martin Fleischmann Memorial Fund team is currently running. Bob noted that the slope gradient is getting steeper on pxs / t-mica external glass, even as the power and pressure are dropping. The live data can... (E-CatWorld; November 21, 2012)
      • Light the New Fire (MFMP Video) - In addition to their LENR replication work, the folks at the Martin Fleischmann Memorial Project are also getting involved in some more general media production activity as a means of spreading awareness about the new fire. It seems to me that the two activities need to go hand in hand. If you have successful... (E-CatWorld; November 16, 2012)
      • Celani LENR Device Successfully Duplicated in USA - The Hunt Utilities Group (HUG) has apparently succeeded in building a functional copy of Francessco Celani's low energy nuclear reaction (LENR) device in Minnesota. The replication is part of the open source LENR effort known as the Martin Fleischman Memorial Project. (EnergyCatalyzer3; November 16, 2012)
        • Wire repair and other fun - So on inspection of the wire after the past week of testing it was suggested that it was damaged and needed a "Repair". (YouTube; Nov. 20, 2012)
        • Live Open Science - The MFMP is built on an idea, to follow evidence for the New Fire in an open, transparent and live way - to enable anyone that is interested to challenge and analyse its findings as they happen, to take science forward.... (YouTube; Nov. 23, 2012)
        • NewScience - promo (YouTube; Nov. 15, 2012)
    • Steven E. Jones
      • Steven Jones replica: Pons & Fleischmann XS Heat not from fusion - Jones is experimenting with a bell electrode setup that strongly evidences excess (xs) energy and has similarities to the cell presented by Pons and Fleischmann. He says that there are at least two distinct phenomena in these experiments and that "fusion" is not what most of these "CF" or "LENR" types of arrangements exhibit. (PESN; November 19, 2012)
        • Cold Fusion Pioneer says LENR is not Fusion - The man who invented the term "cold fusion" now says that the effect popularly described as cold fusion or low energy nuclear reaction (LENR) is not fusion. Professor Emeritus Steven E. Jones told Sterling D. Allan of Pure Energy Systems that he's not sure what to call the effect. (ColdFusion3; November 20, 2012)

      • Forbes's Gibbs on Cold Fusion Unintended Consequences - He considers the consequence of vast amounts of waste heat created by cold fusion generators, and how that would lead to more pronounced urban heat islands which could lead to ecological instablility (e.g. more rats and mosquitos) and contribute to greater global climate change. (E-CatWorld; November 21, 2012)

      • Energy in the News: Desertec Africa-to-Europe Power Project in Trouble - BBC News is reporting that an ambitious project to generate huge amounts of renewable power in North Africa, and transmit it to Europe is in trouble. According the the article, two large companies, Siemens and Bosch, have pulled out of the Desertec project, and the government of Spain has recently decided not to sign...

"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.

-- 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)
