Skip to comments.Are we on the Brink of an Energy Revolution: An Interview with Andrea Rossi
Posted on 03/29/2012 8:56:26 AM PDT by bananaman22
Resource depletion, climate change and rising oil prices have led to large investments in renewable energy and new fossil fuel extraction techniques. However despite the positive headlines on solar, wind, and shale, all of these sectors are beset with problems that add to our uncertain energy future. We appear to be decades away from finding a renewable source that will help us avoid the impending energy crisis.
Yet amongst this bleak outlook a relatively unknown Italian inventor could be about to spark an energy revolution?
Andrea Rossi appears to have produced the first working cold fusion device, or low energy nuclear reaction (LENR), with his Energy Catalyser (E-Cat) machine; a technology previously declared impossible by the scientific community. The E-Cat machine could provide almost limitless, clean, cheap energy. It could prove to be one of the greatest inventions of all time. Rossi could become one of the most revolutionary scientists since Darwin.
Notoriously reluctant to speak to the media about his work, we have had the honour of interviewing Mr. Andrea Rossi about his E-Cat machine.
Some of the questions we asked Mr. Rossi take a look at:
Why it took so long for him to go public with his discovery. How the E-Cat will produce energy costing $10/megawatt hour. When he will release more detailed information on the E-Cat. Why he believes international media coverage of the E-Cat has been so muted. His feelings towards critics and the scientific community. His manufacturing and distribution goals. How the E-cat will help reduce mankinds dependency on fossil fuels. + Many more details on the e-cat, LENR and Rossi himself.
Oilprice.com: What exactly is the E-Cat and how does it work?
Andrea Rossi: The E-Cat machine is basically a heater. It uses a secret catalyser to fuse hydrogen and nickel together to form copper. Copper has a lower energy state than Nickel, and the excess energy is released in the form of a gamma ray. The gamma ray hits a wall of lead where it is absorbed and transformed into heat. The whole process is incredibly efficient and can heat any fluid that passes through the machine. Full article at: The Limitless Potential of the E-Cat: An Interview with Andrea Rossi
Wasn’t this already proven to be false during the public testing?
But since there was nothing of the sort done, as far as I know, words of Mr. Rossi are of minimal importance at this point - on the level of a crazy guy in the street that insists that the end is nigh.
I would dearly love it to be true, and for him to become the wealthiest man in the world if he could deliver.
Now, when I see these things, I can only roll my eyes.
His past isn’t exactly encouraging.
If it works then the EPA and democrats would ban it.
If it works then the EPA and democrats will ban it.
Democrats and the EPA ban anything that works. That’s why they banned nuclear power plants,coal power plants and are stopping oil drilling on federal lands and off the U.S. coasts, stopping oil shale ,fracking etc.
New Energy Times has some updates but it seems to be more of the same. NET article on Rossi.
Still waiting for Rossi or Defkalion to show us a production unit.
Defkalion was supposed to announce something a while ago but nothing that I know of yet.
You will have a very,very long wait.
It doesn't work.
I think Rossi really believes that it will work and is trying to get someone(s) to bank roll his silly notion.
Even Tesla acquired funding for unlikely projects.
But Rossi is no Tesla. Not even close. In fact I can hardly believe that I just mentioned the two in the same sentence.
For all practical purposes, Tesla invented the zero point, renewable energy producing perpetual motion machine about a century ago.
It's called the Hydro Electric plant at Niagara Falls.
bump for later
