The final piece of Andrea Rossi’s LENR puzzle

Standard

Andrea Rossi confirms as “Correct” the following comment by “Dan C.”

Dear Andrea,

I see where you have devised new materials at where the Quark can operate somewhere around 2700`C.

Is this a natural steady state where the Rossi effect is stabilized(thrives) where it neither tends to spontaneously stop nor tries to runaway without constant monitoring and intervention of the controls.

If so, then the final piece of the puzzle is a long lived material(At least exceeding the life of the fuel charge) to a marketable product.

Wishing you the best.
Dan C.

E-Cat IPO

Standard

According to Torkel Nyberg in “Wow! Rossi is Planning a #LeonardoCorp #LENR #IPO?“, Andrea Rossi is probably planning a cold fusion IPO.

One theory about how his “E-Cat” works (nickel-catalyzed fusion of LiAlHfuel with energy released by beta decay of the resulting 8Be) is at http://hydrofusion.com/ecat-science/the-rossi-effect beginning

The Rossi Effect is based on a LENR process including Hydrogen and Lithium where Nickel is merely used as a catalyst and is not consumed in the process (some Nickel – Hydrogen reactions occur but the major part of the Nickel is not consumed and can be recycled). The Hydrogen – Lithium reaction is highly exothermic;

  1. Li7 + H1 → Be8 → 2He4 + 17.3 MeV,

where the 17.3 MeV (=2.8*10-12J) is released as heat.
