Here’s the biggest LENR/cold fusion news in at least the last few years. A team of independent scientists have confirmed anomalous heat production from Andrea Rossi’s E-Cat reactor. I’ve already spent around 1,500-2,000 hours following this story because I’m convinced LENR technology is real and practical. Rossi is now racing to commercialize his reactors and soon this story is going to burst into the spotlight.
There’s also lots of related news such as the Swedish power consortium investing in this technology, leaked photos, NASA and US Navy cold fusion research and patents (while the US patent office denies patents for average inventors by saying it’s not real), and lots of published journal reports on closely related technologies (nanotechnology, superconductivity, quantum mechanics, etc.) that help validate the underlying science.
“A group of Italian and Swedish scientists from Bologna and Uppsala universities have just published their report on two tests lasting 96 and 116 hours, confirming an anomalous heat production in the energy device known as the E-Cat, developed by the Italian inventor Andrea Rossi.
I have earlier reported extensively on the E-Cat in the Swedish technology magazine Ny Teknik, but since more than a year very little new verified information have been available. This looks different.
The conclusion of the report is that the heat production is orders of magnitude beyond any conventional chemical energy source, beaten only by nuclear based power sources. Yet the scientists have systematically made conservative assumptions in order to base the result on a worst case scenario.
“Even by the most conservative assumptions as to errors in the measurements, the result is still one order of magnitude greater than conventional energy sources.”
In the tests, about 5.6 and 2.6 times the input energy was produced respectively (COP). An hypothesis for the lower value in the second test is that it might be explained by a lower working temperature, on average 302 °C against 438 °C in the first run.”
