Rossi accuses Industrial Heat of Trying to Sell him his Own Ecat License

Andrea Rossi is now accusing Tom Darden’s Industrial Heat of trying to sell his own e-cat low nuclear reaction (LENR) technology back to him.

“As usual, the guys of Industrial Heat (IH) are ready to sell what they do not own; now they are offering us to buy back our license, the license that they do not have anymore,” Rossi wrote at his blog on June 23, 2016, “I wonder if they will try to sell the Coliseum of Rome as well. IH has no more any license related to our IP (intellectual property); and whomever is interested to us in North America, Central America, South America, Russia, China, Saudi Arabia and Emirates must contact exclusively.”

The remains of one of Alexander Parkhomov's reactors.

Rossi’s company; Leonardo Corporation, terminated Industrial Heat’s license to market the ecat technology on June 2, 2016, a press release indicates. Therefore we have to wonder what Industrial Heat is up to.

Rossi ends Agreement with Industrial Heat

Leonardo Corporation now has total control of Andrea Rossi’s e-cat low energy nuclear reaction (LENR) technology. The Rossi-headed company took control by ending its relationship with Tom Darden’s Industrial Heat LLC.

Leonardo Corporation announced today, June 2, 2016, that it has terminated the license granted to Industrial Heat, LLC. for the Energy Catalyzer (“E-Cat”) technology,” a Leonardo Corp press release states. “Effective immediately, Leonardo Corporation has the sole and exclusive right to the E- Cat intellectual property in all territories previously licensed to Industrial Heat, LLC.”

This means that Leonardo Corporation now has the right to market e-cat products in all the world’s major economies.

“The license; previously granted to Industrial Heat LLC, gave the company the exclusive rights to use the E-Cat intellectual property in the geographic territories of North America, Central America, South America, the Caribbean, China, Russia, Saudi Arabia and the Arabian Emirates,” the press release posted on ecat.com states.

Rossi Plans Demonstration, Piantelli Has New Patent

Andrea Rossi is planning yet another “public demonstration” of his ecat low energy nuclear reaction (LENR) technology. He also claims to have new partners to replace Industrial Heat and Tom Darden; with whom he is now in an all-out legal war.

On May 7, 2016; Rossi made the lowing post on his blog:

“Peter Metz:

This preliminary demonstration will be given to our Partners and it will be fundamental to decide the eventual scheduling of our work. If of course, these partners; actually exist.

Any information related to it is, obviously, classified. When I say “Partner” I mean also our new allies with which we are preparing the massive production of the product.

 

Thank you for your wishes to our great team.

Warm Regards,

A.R.”

The partners are not identified, hopefully that relationship will work out better than the one with Darden and company.

Rossi Plans Small Reactor

Andrea Rossi is apparently planning to unveil a new smaller version of his e-cat low energy nuclear reaction (LENR) device. As usual Rossi s is not revealing much about the device which he called the E-Cat X/QuarkX.

He did make this statement in a March 20 blog post: “The Hot Cat is evolved into the E-Cat QuarkX. So far. F8, F9.” That seems to indicate that the QuarkX is actually simply the latest version of the hot e-cat technology Rossi and his team have been working on for a long time.

Above is concept art of what e-cat might look like created by Daniel Badoul courtesy ecat.com.

One possibility might be that QuarkX is simply the commercial version of the E-Cat X, which is presumably the 10th version of e-cat that Rossi has built. “EcatX is evolved into QuarkX. Is the same thing, evolved.”

Fleischmann Project Claims to have Achieved LENR

Our friends over at the Martin Fleischmann Memorial Project (MFMP) claim to have achieved a Low Energy Nuclear Reaction (LENR) or cold fusion effect. To add icing to the cake they have sent out an email containing what appears to be the formula they used.

Here is the claim they made in the email dated February 23, 2016:

“Around the beginning of the month we saw what appeared to be up to a COP (Coefficient of Power) of 1.2, not earth shattering, but sustained and robust and in line with both observations by others and the Lugano report when adjusted for correct emissivity. Over the next weeks we tried various bookend calibrations which supported this finding.”

“We have said that only two paths would satisfy us:”

  1. “Statistically significant Isotopic or elemental shifts from Fuel to Ash.”

  1. “Statistically significant emissions commensurate, correlating, or anti correlating to excess heat.”

LENR could help end California Water Crisis

California is in the midst of a catastrophic drought that could affect food prices all over world. What’s truly interesting is that something like low energy nuclear reaction (LENR) or cold fusion could be the solution to this crisis.

If the drought continues California only has about one year’s supply of fresh water left, NASA scientist Jay Famiglietti wrote in a recent Los Angeles Times op-ed. Familgletti a hydrologist looked at satellite data and made the alarming discovery that the Golden State has just enough fresh water left in reservoirs and underground aquifers for one year of use at current consumption levels.

What is truly disturbing is that California is not alone in an article for National Geographic last year, Famiglietti warned that aquifers all over the world and throughout the American West were being pumped dry. He predicted massive water shortages in the US, China, the Middle East and elsewhere if nothing is done.

More Details of Russian e-cat Replication Available

Many more details of Russian scientist Dr. Alexander Parkhomov’s efforts to replicate Andrea Rossi’s hot e-cat low energy nuclear reaction (LENR) technology are available courtesy of our friends at the Martin Flesichmann Memorial Project.

Some of the instruments in Alexander Parkhomov’s laboratory at Moscow's People's Friendship University

Project representative Bob Greenyer visited Parkhomov’s laboratory at the People’s Friendship University in Moscow to examine his reactor. Greenyer posted some intriguing data about the device on the Project’s Facebook page including a number of fascinating pictures.

Some of the most interesting data about Parkhomov’s work Greenyer reported includes:

  • The device reached a temperature of around 1290 degrees Celsius around 2354 degrees Fahrenheit for my fellow Americans.

 

  • The device might be able to reach temperatures as high as 1400 degrees Celsius or 2552 degrees Fahrenheit.

Parkohomov's LENR reactor in action.

  • Parkohomov has achieved results similar to those that Rossi’s team achieved in their test at Lugano, Switzerland in October, 2014.

 

A few Important Energy Stories that You Need to See

There have been a few important developments in the world of energy that everybody needs to be aware of. The energy industry has become more unstable than ever even without the appearance of disruptive technologies like low energy nuclear reaction (LENR) and it looks like it is about to get worse.

Construction of Elon Musk's Gigafactory is well under way.

The biggest story is that the collapse in oil prices is destabilizing many countries including Russia and Venezuela. News stories indicate that super market shelves in Venezuela are empty because the government cannot pay for food imports and that nation’s president is frantically traveling around the world begging for loans and foreign aid to keep his country’s economy functioning. Venezuela’s economy is totally dependent on oil exports, take away the oil exports and the result is depression.

An Exciting Time for LENR

It is a rather interesting and very exciting time for low energy nuclear reaction (LENR). Perhaps the most exciting developments are the attempts to replicate and perhaps improve upon Andrea Rossi’s Lugarno demonstration of his ecat technology.

Jack Cole who is described as a hobbyist reported that he has succeeded in achieving some sort of reaction with a mixture of nickel, hydrogen and a special lime based ceramic powder, the LENR-Coldfusion.com website reported. Cole reported that his experiment created 10.6 watts of excess heat. Cole was hoping to produce LENR without the use of lithium a volatile and potentially flammable substance.

This is supposed to be a picture of Jack Cole's latest low energy nuclear reaction.

Like Alexander Parkhomov Cole was apparently trying to replicate Rossi’s Lugarno experiment. Unfortunately I don’t know that much more about Cole or his efforts.

The Martin Fleischmann Memorial Project is attempting to do much the same thing with their Project Dog Bone. Updates about that effort are regularly posted on the Project’s Facebook page.

How a Technology Develops

The best way to predict how the commercialization and adoption of low energy nuclear reaction (LENR) could occur is to examine how other technologies were adopted in the past. Then to identify the patterns by which they were adopted it. In other words we need to take a look at history.

Thomas Edison an inventor who changed history.

History does not exactly repeat itself but it often operates in similar patterns. These patterns sometimes produce different results but they are similar. A pattern for technological development, commercialization and adoption based on past technological progress can be discerned. Here are the highlights of such a pattern:
