E-Cat South Asia Tech Update

Press Release from Ecat Australia and Ecat South Asia – August 2013

TOMORROWS ENERGY, TODAY

Since we last wrote, there continues to be important developments. The rest of the world is waking up that L.E.N.R. is serious. A recent Forbes article emphasized the maturing of the technology.

And OilPrice.com journalist Brian Westenhaus thinks the industry may have reached the turning point and perhaps the last stages before widespread acceptance. This is further supported by an influx of universities in the US and afield that are now including LENR or Cold Fusion studies in their syllabus.

The 18th International Conference on Cold Fusion (ICCF-18) held last month also provided substantial details of the technology along with deepening understanding of the physics behind it. In practice no-one is yet able to match the COP that Rossi has attained: COP=6, but we hope that all parties do succeed because there is much need for more efficient and environmentally friendly energy sources.

Our focus has continued to be on working with interested parties, discussing their needs and recommending solutions. The following diagram shows the wide applicability of the Rossi E-Cat and Hot-Cat.

Many companies around the globe and in this region are starting to focus on co- and tri- generation, the situation where one heat source is used over and over again. To this end the actual effective COP can be much higher than 6, if one can re-use the heat. A typical co-generation use could be using the initial heat for a food manufacturing process, and the waste heat for a chilling/refrigeration process.

Consider a typical Co-Generation opportunity: Fruit and Veges industry.

Primary Application: Blanching. For this, typically they would be using grid electricity, or Gas. With the E-Cat they would enjoy a COP of 6 (i.e. for every unit of energy previously used, now they can consume just 1/6th of that energy, reducing their bill proportionately). Once used the energy they have consumed is typically wasted.

Secondary Application: By coupling the blanching process and its waste heat, to a chiller system, the company can convert this waste heat into chilling, allowing operation of cold rooms for holding vegetables, at almost no additional energy cost. Assuming a 70% efficiency on this leg, the company might be able to get an additional 50% re-use of the energy (allowing for inefficiencies).

Now the company may also consider that there is a third use for the same energy – output from the Chiller is hot water (approximately 50-70 degrees C). This is ideal for general use in bathrooms and kitchens for washing and cleaning.

Efficiency-comparison-1

Notice from the example table above, that there is substantial improvement of the facility’s energy use. Using the E-Cat, the company may be able to achieve upwards of 10 times the value of the input energy. (note this is a generalized example. Engineers will be able to estimate specific applications which depend on environmental conditions and other factors).

Ten Things We Learned About the Ecat Today

In an audio interview today, Andrea Rossi answered questions on the Ecat, Hot Cat and Leonardo Corporation’s operations in LENR.

1). The military customer has run its Ecat for “many thousands of hours.”

2). The Leonardo Corporation guarantees a COP of 6.

3.) U.S. Partner plans to sell its heat to customer at temperatures of 102-130 C.

4). The Hot Cat works at very good stability at temperatures of 350 C.

5). The infamous Hot Cat photo has leaked under a NDA and was part of a controlled destructive test.

6). 1 gram of mass = 23,000 Megawatt hours. 1 gram of nickel = 23,000 Megawatt hours.

7). Rossi claims they are close to producing electricity.

8). An independent committee of international professors tested a Hot Cat in March for 120 straight hours and will be published in a peer-reviewed journal.

9). Research is primarily in Italy, but with a concentration of operations in the U.S. (Florida). Sweden is in the process of developing manufacturing capabilities as well.

10). There are 106 modules in one 1 Megawatt plant.

Another Look at the Hot Cat

Daniele Passerini has posted another candid pic of Andrea Rossi’s “Hot” Cat on his blog. Passerini claims this photograph was taken sometime last year in 2012 and features the red hot device being pushed to its upper limits.

We have also been treated to pictures of the shipping and testing of the 1 MW Ecat plant from Rossi’s Journal of Nuclear Physics. The pictures were taken on April 30 – May 01 when the unit was purportedly transported from Bologna to Ferrara, Italy. Andrea Rossi has stated that this unit has been purchased by an American customer.

Zurich E-Cat Conference Video

We are still digesting the information presented at the Zurich E-Cat Conference which concluded today.  We’ll leave any conclusions up to the masses as you can now view the “Hot Cat” third party test results courtesy of PESN video:

“Many new things are happening day by day by day around this very important work.”

-A. Rossi, September 8, 2012

Zurich E-Cat Conference and Early Tests

Read the reports here.

“This report comes from two separated tests made on the 16th of July and the 7th of August, made by the Certificator and professors from 2 Universities. We are under NDA with both, but I want to make very clear that this is not a final report, because all the measurements have to be repeated many times before reaching the reliability necessary to a product. Therefore all the measurements have to be repeated many times more. We are on the right way to make a very important product, but much R&D work has still to be done.”

-Andrea Rossi

 

Rossi’s Hot Cat

Several blogs and other sources are speculating on rumors of leaked images and data from a test of Andrea Rossi’s Hot Cat Energy Catalyst.  The device is reportedly capable of producing several kilowatts of power at temperatures up to 1,200 Celsius.  An insider going by the name of Cures, has said the device in the picture was being supplied with 3.56 kilowatts of electrical power, and it was calculated to be emitting 13.39 kilowatts of power in the form of infrared radiation.  Rossi has since identified the mysterious insider as, Domenico Fioravanti, an over exuberant consultant for an alleged military customer of the Leonardo Corporation.  Rossi further stated the results of the July 16, 2012 test will be published by the University of Bologna in October.
