Andrea Rossi – The Trillion Dollar Man

In the future movie ‘Rossi – The Trillion Dollar Man’ the past few months will feature blood on the sand and we will learn the Hollywood version of what the hell was really going on and where it ultimately leads. Yesterday we got a hint of the backroom turmoil behind the brief comments we read […]

Rossi Explains Defkalion’s Financial Fault

Answering a question on his blog, Andrea Rossi has given more details about the split from Defkalion. He explains that the issue has been dragging for months, Defkalion failing to meet some financial obligation before delivery of the 1MW unit. On first read this might seem to contradict his statement regarding payment only after delivery […]

Stremmenos Replies

Daniele Passerini, on his 22passi blog, has received a response from Professor Stremmenos (Defkalion Board Member, physicist and conduit to the Greek government) following the Defkalion/Rossi split. For me, the important points are his continued confidence in the technology and confirmation of eCat tests that were largely self-sustained. There is little chance that a physicist […]

Defkalion Press Release

Ny Teknik has posted a press release said to come from Defkalion. At this moment, for some reason it is not on their site. If not for Ny Teknik, I would be worried that it might be a fake but Ny Teknik received it by email and their channels have proven reliable in the past. […]

Rossi Breaks Defkalion Deal

Andrea Rossi has apparently broken off his deal with Defkalion. In a press release issued on August 4, Rossi announced that the license and transfer deal that would have transferred his energy catalyzer cold fusion technology to Defkalion and its paren…

Defkalion Rossi Divorce

This is extremely disturbing.

A recent rumour has been doing the rounds implying that the agreement between Andrea Rossi and Defkalion has been terminated. This has now been confirmed by AR on his blog. On it’s own, this is a bomb that should shake anyone’s confidence in the façade that has been built around the eCat. Absent proof, much has been made of circumstantial evidence (here and elsewhere). An important part of that evidence centred on Defkalion’s involvement and the comments they made on their forum.

$30 eCat Recharge per 180 Days

Some time ago, Andrea Rossi said that he expected a six month eCat recharge to be around $100 a pop. He was talking about the mid-sized version – and I thought then that such a price was both extraordinarily low and likely to change with commercial realities. When Defkalion commented on their forum that each […]

Defkalion Picks 1MW Testers

Today we learn that AR’s customer has nominated the scientists destined to test the 1MW plant in October. I take this to mean Defkalion as that particular plant is specifically built for them. Andrea Rossi July 31st, 2011 at 2:59 AM Dear Roger Hill, Thank you for your suggestion: the Scientists nominated by our Customer […]

eCat’s Global Spread

An eCatNews What If? article. What if Andrea Rossi manages a successful eCat launch? A common dream among optimistic Rossi watchers imagines home-bound eCats leaping from factories to purr warm and cosy under our stairs – someday soon. A number of Defkalion/Rossi comments could easily lead us to that conclusion but I’ve never been convinced […]
