With July rapidly approaching, followers of Andrea Rossi’s E-Catalyzer project are having their patience tested to the full. With the flurry of excitement late last year, expectations were high that 2012 would be a special year in the development of LENR technology as Rossi moved closer to his goal of producing cheaper, greener energy.
Andrea Rossi has at least provided some encouragement to his loyal followers on his Journal of Nuclear Physics site. Whilst some of his answers are a little vague, he does give a clear indication that firm news can be anticipated within months.
When asked how long the 600C reactor had been running continuously, he answered “We are testing the 600 C E-Cat since a couple of months, and we had to resolve problems that emerged. We will continue the tests for at least another month, after which we will publish a report. In this precise moment I am testing it, and it works, it works.”
When further pressed on a date to end the extended period high temperature reactor test, he said that they need “at least one more month to get sure results.” Regarding the likelihood of some LENR news for ordinary journalists to cover he was confident that this would happen within months and that firm news of his research findings will be made publicly available.
The earlier questions were regarding his high temperature E-Cat and the latter were regarding a working E-Cat that can be examined by members of the public or press. The availability of the domestic E-Cat remains in the hands of the agencies responsible for issuing safety certification, for Rossi is unable to move forward on this without that being granted.
