Tests find Rossi's E-Cat has an energy density at least 10 times higher than any conventional energy source
(Phys.org) In the ongoing saga of Andrea Rossi's energy catalyzer (E-Cat) that promises clean, cheap power for the world, the latest events continue to bring as many questions as answers. Several scientists have performed supposedly independent tests of two E-Cat prototypes under controlled conditions and using high-precision instrumentation. In a paper posted at arXiv.org, the researchers write that, even by the most conservative of measurements, the E-Cat produces excess heat with a resulting energy density that is at least 1 order of magnitudeand possibly severalhigher than any other conventional energy source, including gasoline.
Of the seven scientists who authored the paper, two are from Italy (Giuseppe Levi at Bologna University and Evelyn Foschi of Bologna, Italy) and five are from Sweden (Torbjörn Hartman, Bo Höistad, Roland Pettersson and Lars Tegnér at Uppsala University; and Hanno Essén at the Royal Institute of Technology in Stockholm).
Essén, who submitted the paper, is an associate professor of theoretical physics at the Swedish Royal Institute of Technology and former chairman of the Swedish Skeptics Society.
"I have followed the Rossi E-Cats for a couple of years now and participated in two experiments (including the present one) and read, and heard, about several other more or less independent ones," Essén told Phys.org. "My overall impression is that there must be something there, but scientists must always be cautious until everything has been checked and rechecked."

Where can I buy one?
Hopefully we will all know that soon. Contact A. Rosssi?
A few pings from Kevmo’s ping list, the ones I can see from a previous article.
I don’t see your article at that link.
Thanks. There’s nothing new here. This is a rehash of old info.
I hope so too! it sounds wonderful... should change the world... he should become a $trillionaire...
when can I get one? oh- its still not available? what is this-like 10 years now? what are they waiting for...?
is he too stupid to file a patent?
And in another 3 or 4 decades we might even may see a commercial use maybe.
Thanks for the link assistance! I need to go to article posting school :(
I hope it doesn’t take another 3 or 4 decades. I won’t live that long.
How about 3 or 4 years, as it seems a lot of progress is being made lately by a host of researchers and organizations.
I didn’t post properly and the article link doesn’t work. Can you fix it, please?
Color me skeptical
I have a friend who is an older fellow who holds several patents that relate to catalysts and cat crackers. Every refinery in the world uses his inventions. He has not looked in to this but some of the things he says about catalysts are very interesting. I guess my point is that you never know what a human may come up with:)
A while back, someone posted a link to a story of a con artist a century ago, who used an approach almost identical to Rossi's to keep a scam going for decades. When he died and people were able to actually examine his device, they found a very clever mechanism for producing the effects--but no actual device. I'm guessing we'll see the same with Rossi. The main difference between that 1800s scammer and Rossi is that the 1800s scammer had some artistic talent, so that his "devices" were nice to look at. Rossi has no sense of style at all.
Given that sites advocacy of man made global warming I question the source and its agenda.
Science label for gov cash seems to be a new industry.
You're talking about hot fusion, right??
He has a European patent, but not (yet) a US one. Whether that is due to the fact that the US patent office has (wrongully) in the past treated cold fusion like perpetual motion, I don't know. Several other researchers and agencies have very recently received US patents for CF approaches. The secret of US success seems to be to NOT call it "cold fusion", but some other terminology.
There are other researchers besides Rossi. Read Beaudette’s book yet?? Or ANY published research paper on LENR??
