“New results are presented from an extended experimental investigation of anomalous heat production in a special type of reactor tube operating at high temperatures. The reactor, named E-Cat, is charged with a small amount of hydrogen-loaded nickel powder plus some additives, mainly Lithium. The reaction is primarily initiated by heat from resistor coils around the reactor tube. Measurements of the radiated power from the reactor were performed with high-resolution thermal imaging cameras. The measurements of electrical power input were performed with a large bandwidth three-phase power analyzer. Data were collected during 32 days of running in March 2014. The reactor operating point was set to about 1260 oC in the first half of the run, and at about 1400 °C in the second half. The measured energy balance between input and output heat yielded a COP factor of about 3.2 and 3.6 for the 1260 oC and 1400 oC runs, respectively. The total net energy obtained during the 32 days run was about 1.5 MWh. This amount of energy is far more than can be obtained from any known chemical sources in the small reactor volume.

A sample of the fuel was carefully examined with respect to its isotopic composition before the run and after the run, using several standard methods: XPS, EDS, SIMS, ICP-MS and ICP-AES. The isotope composition in Lithium and Nickel was found to agree with the natural composition before the run, while after the run it was found to have changed substantially. Nuclear reactions are therefore indicated to be present in the run process, which however is hard to reconcile with the fact that no radioactivity was detected outside the reactor during the run. “


“Interesting to note is that the report suggests that Lithium-Hydrogen reactions are part of the Rossi-Effect. Given the 17 MeV excess energy from the Li7+H1->Be8->2He4 reaction, data in the report even supports the possibility that Lithium-Hydrogen is one of the main contributors to the excess energy from the Low Energy Nuclear Reactions (LENR) involved in the ECAT.”

Warning for fraudulent websites claiming ECAT partnership

It has come to our knowledge that a fraudulent website “Pulsodream” has surfaced on the Internet. They are illegally seeking investments related to ECAT products by Leonardo Corporation. “Pulsodream” do NOT have any licenses or rights to sell or market the ECAT under Leonardo Corporation, NOR representing any other Licensee of Leonardo Corporation.

“Pulsodream” is a total fraud and has been reported to the appropriate authorities.

An Impossible Invention – Newly Published Book About the E-Cat

Swedish technology journalist Mats Lewan release new book about E-Cat.

Mats Lewans book about e-cat Cold fusion is an energy source that could provide clean water to Planet Earth, zero-emission vehicles with unlimited mileage, a solution to the climate crisis and much more. It is clean, compact, simple, inexhaustible and . . . physically impossible. At least that is what science has considered since 1989.

But in January 2011 the Italian inventor Andrea Rossi demonstrated a sloppily-wrapped device that boiled water with heat emanating from something that seemed to be cold fusion.

Too good to be true, some said. Fraud, according to others.

A Swedish technology journalist was one of the few who chose to take Rossi seriously. In An Impossible Invention we follow his search for the truth about Rossi and the strange device — the E-Cat. He shows that the impossible seems to be possible, that the world faces fundamental change.

Mats Lewan is a technology and science journalist, author and speaker. He works as a staff writer at the Swedish technology magazine Ny Teknik and has worked internationally as a freelance journalist and reporter at CBS Cnet News. Lewan holds a Master of Science degree in Engineering Physics from the Royal Institute of Technology in Stockholm, Sweden where he lives with his wife and two children.

#1 Sample from Chapter 1 – An impossible Invention;

“I had tried for weeks to create a mental picture of the man, this strange Italian who seemed to have invented, or perhaps one should say discovered, an unparalleled source of energy with the potential to change the world. Literally the whole world. I had not met him, only heard his energetic voice on the phone a few times and seen a couple of short video clips from a presentation of his invention in Bologna on January 14, 2011—the presentation that led me to this remarkable story. Without deep thought I had imagined him as a typical clichéd inventor. You recall the movie ‘Back to the Future?’ Something of that sort, aside from Christopher Lloyd’s bushy white hair: a little manic and on edge, with an intense but somewhat distracted look in his eyes. Obviously this had little or nothing to do with the man standing before me on that cold and snowy afternoon, February 3, 2011”

#2 Sample from Chapter 1 – An impossible Invention;

“On our website, the article was headlined: “Cold fusion may provide one megawatt in Athens.”In the newspaper, it said instead, on the front page: “We deserve the Nobel Prize.” It was not Rossi but Focardi who, politely cautious, expressed his views on the technology and the possibilities of the Nobel Prize when I interviewed him.
“You know, rewards are something I usually give to myself,” he first said, modestly. Then he added: “I believe—forgive me if I say it—that this is the greatest discovery in human history. So let’s say that if they were to award us the Nobel Prize, I think it would be well deserved.”
When I later saw the headline on the front page, mentioning the Nobel Prize, I thought that if it all turned out to be a well-executed hoax or misunderstanding, or if the apparatus simply did not work, the critics would take every opportunity to mock us for that title even if we had been quoting something Focardi had said. If it worked, it would be almost an obvious Nobel candidate, though it was not clear to whom it would be awarded.“

Swedish Electrical Utilities’ R & D Company, Elforsk, release news about the ECAT test

In the last pages of the ECAT Test report all authors gratefully acknowledged the financial support  from Alba Langenskiöld Foundation and ELFORSK AB in Sweden.

What is Elforsk?

On 17 December 1992 Vattenfall, Svenska Kraftnät (Swedish national grid), Association of Swedish Electric Utilities’ (Svenska Elverksföreningen) and Swedish Power Association (Svenska Kraftverksföreningen) agreed to set up Elforsk – Swedish Electrical Utilities’ R & D Company (Svenska Elföretagens Forsknings- och Utvecklings- Elforsk – Aktiebolag).

Elforsk then released the news today:

“Swedish researchers have tested Rossi’s energy catalyzer – E-cat
Researchers from Uppsala University and KTH Stockholm has conducted measurements of the produced heat energy from a device called the E-cat. It is known as the energy catalyzer invented by the Italian scientist Andrea Rossi.

The measurements show that the catalyzer produces significantly more energy than can be explained by ordinary chemical reactions. The results are very remarkable. What lies behind the extraordinary heat production can not be explained today. There has been speculation over whether there can be any form of nuclear transformation. However, this is highly questionable. To learn more about what is going on you have to learn what is happening with the fuel and the waste it produces. The measurements have been funded by Elforsk et al.”

New ECAT Test during summer 2013

As quoted in the report:

“In the next test experiment which is expected to start in the summer of 2013, and will last about six months, a long term performance of the E-Cat HT2 will be tested. This test will be crucial for further attempts to unveil the origin of the heat phenomenon observed so far.”


About Elforsk framework: SEK 281 Million of  shared financing for joint R&D in 2012

Elforsk’s work is carried out in the form of coordinated framework programmes and as individual projects. Proposals for R&D come from our customers, from Elforsk staff members, and from external parties with whom we work. Proposals are evaluated in various ways, such as with the support of our programme council, and developed in conjunction with possible sources of funding and performers. The R&D proposals are then submitted to our clients – owner group companies, authorities and other possible interested parties – with a clear description of the expected benefit.

When project funding has been secured, Elforsk commissions execution of the work from companies in the owners group, from institutes of technology or from manufacturers or consultants, and manages the quality of the resulting projects. The final task for Elforsk is then to transfer the results of projects to the customers so that they can be applied in an effective manner. Certain results with an innovative content may lend themselves to commercialisation.For this, Elforsk cooperates on the “KIC Inno-Energy” initiative.

Only those projects that are guaranteed sufficient funding can be carried out. Elforsk has no underlying basic finance for its work, or for its personnel costs, which is a relatively unusual situation for an R&D organisation. The overall purpose of this arrangement is clear: only work directly requested by customers must be carried out.

Elforsk’s method of working attracts attention, and not just in Sweden. It is cited in various contexts as a possible model for other sectors, which do not have the same systems for how the various parties from institutes of technology, public authorities and industry can work together towards common objectives.
