Many people are awaiting the release of new concerning the high temperature E-Cat, currently being tested by Andrea Rossi. The industrial power plant and the home E-Cat are awaiting certification.
As these units near certification and wide-spread release, there is much speculation about the manufacturing facilities and manpower that will be necessary to meet the demands of these units – especially the domestic E-Cats. This is a difficult subject to speculate upon, since the domestic E-Cat is still top-secret, at least until certification is complete.
It’s the same with the high temperature device – any leaks about who may manufacture the devices, or where the factories will be located exactly, could prove detrimental to the certification process. At the very least, it could lead to the release of certain technical information that others could steal, interfering with marketing of Rossi’s devices.
One thing does remain clear, directly from Rossi himself. On his blog, Journal of Nuclear Physics, Rossi recently stated:
“…we must create jobs, not just sell technology. The big mistake of the industrialized countries has been the illusion to be able to create richness without maintaining manufacturing and jobs. We must return to make real work, to make real jobs, based on technology, research and development. An Intellectual Property owner without a manufacturing system is like a General without an Army: can’t win any war, whatever the strategy.”
A poster to the same blog also pointed out that Rossi may consider letting other people figure out how to produce the electricity. Let Rossi perfect his E-Cat, producing heat in massive quantities, and let the “uncountable number of engineers” develop the means of using the heat to produce electricity.
This may be what Rossi is doing, anyway. He continually says that his high temperature E-Cat is being tested. The crux of the testing seems to be to maintain reactions and offer sustainable production of heat. At one point, Rossi was in discussions with Siemens to develop a steam turbine, so he may, indeed, expect others to develop the electricity generators that will work from the heat.
