In comments on the Journal of Nuclear Physics over the last couple of days, Andrea Rossi seems to have confirmed that his first partner is in the food industry. Here are some questions and answers on the subjects: Mitch April 8, 2018 at 4:36 AM Dr Andrea Rossi: I think that the food industry is […]

An article on CNBC reports that Saudi Arabia has plans to build 16 nuclear reactors in a effort to reduce its consumption of its own oil. According to the World Nuclear Association, one fourth of Saudi Arabia’s oil production is consumed domestically, and 65 per cent of its electricity is generated by oil-burning power stations. […]

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 […]

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 […]

The following post has been submitted by Greg Goble. This article has also been posted here. The government of the United States of America has filed many ‘cold fusion’ LENR patents. These LENR patents take time to develop, often a number of years, before being filed with a patent office; each being a tedious project […]

All of a sudden anomalous technology is front and center in the mainstream news. The New York Times on December 16 published an article about the Pentagon’s $22 million “Advanced Aerospace Threat Identification” program that investigated reports of UFO sightings. The program officially ended in 2012, but actually continued in secrecy led by Pentagon military […]

If you read news about finance these days, it is impossible to miss the story of the massive run-up in value of Bitcoin over the last year. Its value has rise over 1000 per cent since the beginning of the year, and some people who have owned Bitcoin since its early creation have become multimillionaires. […]

The following post has been submitted by Mason Ainsworth The recent Stockholm demonstration astounded me. By design, intuition, or simple luck, Rossi appears to be taking advantage of, if not pushing Big Oil towards a fracturing of a sense of coalition by presenting the means for attaining and possibly maintaining a competitive advantage for many […]

Unified Gravity Corporation is a Morgan Hill, California company that claims a method of creating energy through a proton-lithium fusion method using hydrogen and nickel as fuel, for which they have applied for a US patent. UGC’s stated mission “replace hydrocarbon-based energy with affordable, clean and safe fusion energy all around the world” I haven’t […]

The following post has been submitted by Michael Lammert, who posts here under the name Dr Mike. Engineering and Marketing Issues for Commercializing the E-Cat QX  Michael Lammert (aka Dr. Mike) October 29, 2017        For the many followers of Rossi’s development of the E-Cat technology, a key question often asked is when will Rossi […]

As if there wasn’t enough problems to be concerned about in today’s world, an additional threat which is not normally discussed in terms of national security — a nuclear EMP (electromagnetic pulse) attack — was discussed yesterday (Oct. 12, 2017) at a congressional hearing before the US House of Representatives’ Homeland Security Subcommittee on Oversight […]

I liked the idea that Tom Kaminski posted about in another thread. He wrote: this: “I recently attended a talk by a large US rail freight company who is exploring rail electrification. Distances are so great in the US and the capital cost of catenary electrification so large that it is likely not to ever […]

Andrea Rossi had mentioned earlier this week on the Journal of Nuclear Physics that “our tech is mature to produce electricity only on industrial scale, using the Carnot cycle.” I noted that each year coal power plants are retired from service, having completed their life-cycle, and are not being replaced by new coal plants largely […]

A new patent application has recently been filed by two US-based engineers that claims high efficiency electricity generation from ‘low energy thermal heat generation systems’, also referred to as LENR systems. The title is: “METHOD AND SYSTEM FOR HIGH EFFICIENCY ELECTRICITY GENERATION USING LOW ENERGY THERMAL HEAT GENERATION AND THERMIONIC DEVICES”; the inventors are Rodney […]
