E-Cat News & Questions Weekly Digest from Andrea Rossi
Question: The expected price of the 10kW module has recently been reduced to $1500. Does this mean the 1MW plant will be cheaper as well?
Question:How can the E-cat be installed together with my current heating solution? When do you expect the ecat version featuring both, heat and electricity supply, can be bought and installed?
Question: How will you prove to the regulators and to the customers that this new form of nuclear energy is absolutely safe? (The physics concerning the reactions within the E-Cat are still unknown and the regulators may require safety tests spanning a period of several years to make sure that the device is absolutely safe even after many years of operation.
Answers: The physics concerning the reactions within the E-Cats are well known ( we just do not publish them for confidentiality issues) and there are patents pending for those, while the certifications are in course. We made thousands-hours tests without any radiations emitted from the reactors to the environment outside the reactors. This is very easy to be measured anyway. The reverse engineering will be, I think, impossible, due to a system we invented for this purpose, but even if somebody will succeed to do it, it will anyway be impossible for him to compete economically.
Question: When, in the period between now and autumn 2012, is expected to be submitted to the official market of the product in question?
Answer: We will do the presentation as soon as the certifications will be completed. Perhaps September.
Question: Could you tell med where the factory is located where you will manufacture the home e-cats?Can i import an e-cat from USA to Sweden this autumn, or do i have to wait until you have distribution in Sweden?
Answer: To import them you will have just to order them. If you want, you can enlist in the waiting list; I hope to be ready to deliver by next Autumn, if not it will take some more month, not years. In Sweden we will have an important concern anyway, because Sweden will be a primary place for us: probably we will produce the E-Cats for Sweden directly in Sweden.
