Andrea Rossi, inventor of the Energy Catalyzer, or E-Cat, has initially said that he would build a manufacturing facility in Italy, and perhaps another one in Sweden. However, due to recent issues with the Italian government, Rossi has decided not to build a plant in Italy. The Italian Secretary of State, Claudio De Vincenti, says that since Rossi is unwilling to disclose the “mode of operation” of the E-Cat units, there is just too much doubt about the device for the government to allow production of the technology in manufacturing plants.
Further suspicion is expressed concerning the fuel composition and the internal structure of the machine. The government official also says that Rossi has stated that there are no nuclear reactions taking place in the unit, yet it produces weak gamma rays. This is considered to be conflicting information, making Rossi’s motives suspect.
Of course, the E-Cat is still awaiting patent, and Rossi would be a fool to disclose his operating system. Private inventors especially are vulnerable to intellectual theft. Even with his Italian patent is granted, it won’t protect his invention in other countries. His product won’t be safe from copy-cats until he has an international patent, valid in every country in which the unit will be made available on the market.
Rossi has, since, announced that the production of his E-Cat will be for the U.S. only, at least at first and he says that obviously the spokesperson for the Italian Parliament is ignoring the need for patent protection.
The false statements contained in the answer that the Italian Government guy ( a deputy minister !!!) has given are a clear signal. If you analyse the language and compare the evident lack of specific information of this guy with the arrogance of his conclusions ( for example: “the patent will not be granted in Europe”, and he knows nothing of the pending patents, or ” Rossi in some occasion said his apparatus emits radiations, in other occasions said the contrary”, which is false because I always said that no radiations are emitted to the external of the apparatuses from the E-Cats, and I always said that the low level gamma rays inside the E-Cat are turned into heat) and compare the arrogance of the statements with the evident lack of information,as I was saying, the signal is clear: lobbies bound to the government have acted. Add the fact that a person, financed by the taxpayer, is blowing on the fire to try to stop us to promote more public funding to state owned companies that produced only chatters in 20 years of work, shake the all and the resulting cocktail is: better we stay away from there, if I want not to get stuck in the mud. We will sell in Italy our production, but will work safe in the USA and, probably, in Sweden, where we are organizing a strong organization.
Believing that special interest lobbyists have managed to sway Italian politicians, Rossi is concerned that production of his technology will be stonewalled. He therefore plans to market and build in the U.S. and in Sweden.
Considering his long-life history with his mother country, there’s no wonder he prefers other locations to carry on his work.
