The long-anticipated third party independent report on the E-Cat has been provided and Andrea Rossi has confirmed its uncut authenticity.
Apparently a COP of 3.2-3.6 over a 32 day period and isotopic change in nickel and lithium was observed.
“In summary, the performance of the E-Cat reactor is remarkable. We have a device giving heat energy compatible with nuclear transformations, but it operates at low energy and gives neither nuclear radioactive waste nor emits radiation. From basic general knowledge in nuclear physics this should not be possible. Nevertheless we have to relate to the fact that the experimental results from our test show heat production beyond chemical burning, and that the E-Cat fuel undergoes nuclear transformations. It is certainly most unsatisfying that these results so far have no convincing theoretical explanation, but the experimental results cannot be dismissed or ignored just because of lack of theoretical understanding.”
The report is entitled “Observation of Abundant Heat Production From a Reactor Device and of Isotopic Changes in the Fuel” and is written by Giuseppe Levi, Evelyn Foschi, Bo Höistad, Roland Pettersson, Lars Tegnér and Hanno Essén, all of whom also wrote an earlier third party report on the E-Cat.
A fair critique, especially of the calorimetric measuring, can be found here.
