E-cat inventor Andrea Rossi made a fascinating claim on his Journal of Nuclear Physics Blog on June 15, 2014. Rossi claimed that four well-known multinational corporations are developing or research low energy nuclear reaction (LENR) or cold fusion technology. Here’s what Rossi wrote:
“. I know that giants are already working to compete with us: Shell, Mitsubishi, MIT, Volvo, ABB, NASA…and I am strongly honored to have inspired, in some way, their work; to be clear: should I have not broken the ice in three years of public work, since January 2011, none of these Entities would have taken seriously LENR in the measure they are taking them now.”
What’s intriguing is that three of these companies have not been mentioned as involved in LENR research before. The Japanese giant Mitsubishi’s involvement with LENR has been well documented in the past but I’ve never seen a mention of Royal Dutch Shell (NYSE: RDS.A), AB Volvo or ABB (NYSE: ABB), a Swiss power and automation company being involved in cold fusion work yet. Rossi didn’t say what these companies are doing with LENR. Shell and ABB are both members of the Fortune 500, Shell is one of the 25 largest companies in the world.
