Another Andrea Rossi Interview

EV World, the journal behind NASA’s Dennis Bushnell interview has followed up with a 30 minute talk with Andrea Rossi. These near-hand accounts are great, making the man behind the hype flesh and putting flesh on our understanding of the eCat and AR’s claims.

Some takeaways are as follows:

  • Andrea Rossi was one of many who tried and failed to replicate the Pons & Fleischmann result in 1989
  • Although unsuccessful, it sowed a seed in his mind
  • He is happy with the term LENR
  • Until 2007, he experimented around the subject as he ran other businesses
  • Reaching a critical point, he needed to decide if it was worth the risk of concentrating full time – 16 hours a day
  • He asked Prof Focardi to look at his ideas and tell him why it would not work
  • Prof Focardi could not do so
  • At this point (July 2007) he decided to try make a useful product
  • Knowing that if it worked there would be radiation, he hired Prof Focardi as a safety measure
  • Focardi did this and also helped him understand how to thermalize the operational radiation
  • He built a 20KW device and installed it in his factory, heating it for around a year ( 5 months are cold and winter is v cold)
  • The factory is now sold along with everything else to fund the energy catalyser project
  • After recharging, ‘spent’ Ni is sold to dealers for normal use
  • If all world’s energy was made with eCat, it would only consume some percentage point of current annual Ni production
  • No foreseeable showstoppers
  • Hopes for exponential development, liking that to the growth of the computer industry from a business tool in 1995 to the proliferation throughout the world where households began to buy them
  • The cost of $1,000 to $2,000 per KW facility and $0.01 per KWH should help make this the game-changer Dennis Bushnell talked of
