I thought this was an interesting post by ECW reader Bruno who has attempted an estimate of the cost of a 1MW E-Cat QX industrial plant based on Andrea Rossi’s comment that the return on investment (ROI) would be less than two years. With current US natural gas prices, the fuel cost is approximately $20/MW-hr […]

Here are a couple of new pieces of information about the E-Cat QX plants from Andrea Rossi on the Journal of Nuclear Physics today. Elliot February 16, 2018 at 12:53 AM Dr Andrea Rossi, Which is the max temperature you can reach on a secondary circuit? Andrea Rossi February 16, 2018 at 7:17 AM Elliot: […]

Five days ago Andrea Rossi was asked on the Journal of Nuclear Physics what chances he gave for getting the industrial E-Cats on the market in 2018, and his reply was “70 %”. Just yesterday when asked the same question he stated: “Today I think between 80 and 90%.” I asked him what had changed […]

Bob Greenyer has posted a new video where he cracks open the alumina foam housing from the Looking for Heat Model T test bed in which part of the LION 2 reactor has been stuck (LION had sent it to Bob), and carries out a post-mortem. In the first part of the video Bob shows […]

The World Nuclear News website is reporting about plans in China to begin a district heating system using nuclear fission reactions to supply the low-temperature heat suitable for heating residential and commercial buildings during winter months. The project is to be carried out by China General Nuclear (CGN) and Tsinghua University. CGN states that based […]

Over the years many people have suggested that if the E-Cat Works as Andrea Rossi claims, and has a high enough COP, it should be relatively straightforward to use a portion of the energy produced by the E-Cat to generate the electricity needed to power itself — thus having a self-looped plant, without the need […]

A new issue of the Russian “Journal of Unconventional Science” has been published which is dedicated to the topic of LENR. It can be accessed here: http://www.unconv-science.org/n17/ Along with some theoretical articles, there are two experimental reports. Of particular interest to people who are interested in E-Cat-type replication is the article “Experimental studies of excess heat […]

The following post has been submitted by “the Director” (Please check out my blog for a more in-depth and complete version of this article at my blog the Electron Clusters Project: Andrea Rossi’s E-Cat Effect: A Process Using Carbon, Low Work Function Dopants, and Atomic Hydrogen for “Negative Electron Affinity” Diamond Synthesis.) I don’t believe […]

Alan Smith of Looking For Heat has started a test using a LFH Model T reactor in which he is doing a ‘control’ experiment of the LION reactor. This means that he is using non-fueled tubes of the same type as LION, and seeing how they behave when heated. This will allow us to see […]

Here are some more questions that I asked Andrea Rossi on the Journal of Nuclear Physics, along with his responses. Question #1 refers to a comment he made yesterday in which he affirmed that they had determined exactly what the robots he plans to use in E-Cat QX production will have to do. Frank Acland […]

An article in the Los Angeles Times looks at a company called NuScale Power (http://www.nuscalepower.com/ ) which is working on developing small (50 MW) nuclear fission reactors that they hope will prove to form nuclear power plants of the future. The reactors are designed to be modular, so multiple reactors can be combined together to […]

A couple of new details provided by Andrea Rossi today on the Journal of Nuclear Physics. Courtney Kissinger February 4, 2018 at 2:07 AM Dear Andrea Can you explain the material the reactor that contains the plasma is made with? Andrea Rossi February 4, 2018 at 8:35 AM Courtney Kissinger: I cannot, it is an […]
