AR on What the Rossi Effect is Not

Many people have been trying to get their head around what the ‘Rossi Effect’ is. What could be going on inside the E-Cat reactor to generate so much energy without the problems associated with the nuclear and chemical reactions that are cu…

The People of the E-Cat

I though this was an interesting exchange and comment from Andrea Rossi on the Journal of Nuclear Physics today. AR: 1 a.m. of Thursday July 24th, and we are working: we, the Team. Italo R: “… we, the Team….” and that reminds me “We, The Peop…

STMicroelectronics LENR Patent

Developments in the CF arena may be slow but there are occasional surprises dotted on the way. One such is the revelation of a Patent application by STMicroelectronics. There is no doubt that this is LENR. It is in the title. The application is very specific and unlike AR’s patent apps, is extremely professional. I […]

Rossi on Factories

Andrea Rossi has responded on his Journal of Nuclear Physics Site to a question asking about his manufacturing facilities and a request for pictures of them: Dear Brian: Our factories are in the USA. We have a R&D center in Italy wherein we also m…

Defkalion And A Jumble Of Thoughts

When you strip away the juvenile dummy (pacifier) spitting, eCatNews comments lend an insight to the psychology of belief and ultra scepticism. This was not my intention when I set it up but it’s there for researchers nevertheless. I find myself torn between the two groups. In nature and temperament, I warm to the positive […]


My pm box is busy with people, wondering if I have given up on AR and the eCat. The answer is, No. That said, I do not wish to report on such a potentially important subject unless I can do so with all engines running. Although eCatNews appears to be popular, there were no offers […]

eCat Chatters

As though orchestrated by Rossi himself, the volume of reasonable and unreasonable criticism of his claims has intensified recently. The measure of reason will differ from person to person and I try to steer a productive conversation by encouraging all views even when I disagree with them. It is somewhat ironic that AR denigrates the chatterers […]

Andrea Rossi: Almost 100,000 Domestic eCat Orders

A few weeks ago the ‘news’ that Andrea Rossi’s call for a 10,000 eCat pre-order list had actually reached 50,000 was greeted with mixed reactions. Some tried to estimate the interest in the subject by studying site stats (such as those from eCatNews.com) feeling certain that active curiousity in AR’s claims were too low to […]

No eCat Research For University Of Bologna

For the last six months, many of us have been waiting in hope for the promised research contract between Andrea Rossi’s company and The University of Bologna to be actioned. The lure of independent tests coupled with the long association with the academic bastion through Professors Focardi and Levi lent a level of credibility to […]

eCat Pre-Order List 50,000 Units

Just posted on AR’s blog. Interesting that he is allowing slippage of the shipping date to 18 months. This is reasonable if dissapointing. This timescale is closer to his original forecast of one to two years before recent talk of Autumn/Winter this year. Given the hurdles of certification and tooling for mass production, a little […]

1MW eCat Now $1.5M (US)

According to eCat.com, Andrea Rossi’ primary customer-facing affiliate site, the 1MW eCats have now dropped from $2M to $1.5M. This is in line with previous comments from AR and although we do not have confirmation from the inventor yet, I would consider eCat.com a trusted source on that sort of information. The reasons for the […]
