And here's the part the Kevmo and Rossi don't want you to know about...,cd_min:1/1/1900,cd_max:12/31/2010%26prmd%3Dimvnso&

This article is about criminal charges against Rossi for fraud for filing false invoices to take advantage of a "Law on the earthquake" (Earthquake-related subsidy?),cd_min:1/1/1900,cd_max:12/31/2010%26prmd%3Dimvnso&

This one is about the toxic waste from Rossi's alleged "garbage to oil" invention. According to this article, the "output" from Rossi's process was no more than 3% hydrocarbons. It appears that this was a syndicate of Rossi's company and several others to dump their toxic waste by claiming that Rossi was converting it to fuel.

Rossi's defense was that the Italian govermnent and the Mafia conspired to change the environmental laws to make him look guilty when he had done nothing wrong. His defense didn't work, and Rossi went to jail.,cd_min:1/1/1900,cd_max:12/31/2010%26prmd%3Dimvnso&
According to this article, Rossi's "process" for converting garbage into fuel was to "mix the waste with lime" before sending it to the dump site.,cd_min:1/1/1900,cd_max:12/31/2010%26prmd%3Dimvnso&
Here's an article about Rossi's gold scam. Fake invoices for shipping gold that never arrived at it's destination. More jail time for fraud.

This one is particularly interesting. Rossi sold the U. S. Army on his "invention" of a vastly more efficient Thermo-Electric (TE) Power Generator" that would convert waste heat into electricity.

"Dr." Rossi (notice that the Army thought, for some reason, that Rossi was a "Dr.") could improve the efficiency of these devices from "the current science of 4%" to 20%

Rossi produces a small-scale device, which appeared to show this dramatic increase in efficiency. (Although, as is typical of Rossi's demos, the testing methodology appears to be flawed. They only took measurements "every 1/2 hour", leaving as unanswered what the device was doing when no one was actually monitoring it.)

After this demo, Rossi's factory burned down, and Rossi left the country. He claimed that it would be more "cost effective" to build the actual devices in Italy.

None of the devices produced by Rossi worked. 19 of the 27 devices were totally incapable of generating electricity "for a variety of reasons." The remaining devices produced only 1 Watt of power, not only significantly less than the results promised by Rossi (800 - 1000 Watts), but less than the exiting technology provided. In other words, they didn't even work as well as devices he could have bought off the shelf.

The report carefully avoids drawing any conclusions about Rossi's involvement in this. I suspect that is because it doesn't help a military man's career by admitting that he was the victim of a con artist.
