Ecat – an innovative way of producing energy


Early version of the Ecat.

Imagine that you can have an electric energy source which is clean, carbon-free, affordable, compact, and silent, with no radiations, no emissions, and no hazardous materials inside. And that it runs for 10+ years, when and where you want. Without recharging or refueling.

This is the Ecat. 

At the core of the Ecat technology is an innovative method for applying the physics of the electron. It is based on what is called Zero Point Energy, or ZPE, which is a complex concept in which energy can be extracted from the vacuum though quantum effects.

The method is implemented in a small confined space with minute amounts of ordinary non-hazardous elements such as nickel, hydrogen, aluminum, and lithium, producing a high efficiency plasma system. There is no fuel, and none of these materials is consumed.

From the plasma it is possible to extract light, heat, or electricity.

The plasma is kept stable, and can be switched on and off instantly, thanks to a small unit of control electronics, consuming a few watts of electric power. This is essentially the only energy that the Ecat technology consumes, while the energy that it produces through ZPE is much larger.

A detailed theoretical hypothesis, explaining the operation of the Ecat, is presented by inventor Andrea Rossi in his paper E-Cat SK and long-range particle interactions, which has been read 71,000+ times and can be downloaded here.
