According to Andrea Rossi
In September, Covid 19 permitting, we will have an important third party nominated by a Partner that will control the measurements remaking them. Therefore for now you are just taking my word, right or wrong as it might be, albeit I think I am right. The new Ecat SKL is the masterpiece of my life. It works in closed loop and generates the electric energy to fuel itself, plus generates 4 kWh/h of electric energy. […] More work has to be done, but now for a couple of weeks I will take my holidays, because I am very tired. A big step forward has been done. We should possibly have an electric engine with infinite autonomy, it seems. We’ll see.
Andrea Rossi confirms as “Correct” the following comment by “Dan C.”
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.
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 LiAlH4 fuel 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;
- Li7 + H1 → Be8 → 2He4 + 17.3 MeV,
where the 17.3 MeV (=2.8*10-12J) is released as heat.
