Today inventor of the E-Cat Andrea Rossi confirmed on his website Journal of Nuclear Physics that the previous business agreement between EFA, the Italian company which hold the rights for the production of the E-Cat, and the Greek manufacturer Defkalion GT, has been terminated:
PRESS RELEASE :
Bologna-Rome (Italy) August 4th 2011
EFA- Energia da Fonti Alternative srl, the Italian Company through which the rights for the production of Andrea Rossi’s E-Cat were granted to Praxen Defkalion Green Technologies LTD, publicly announces that the License and Technology Transfer Agreement between the two companies has been recently terminated. All business relationships with Praxen , the Cyprus based company that owns the Greek company Defkalion Green Technologies S.A., have been cancelled and asof today neither Praxen nor Defkalion, nor any other Greek company whatsoever holds any rights for the production of the E-Cat or for any other exploitation of Andrea Rossi’s technology.
Furthermore Andrea Rossi and EFA announce that no information, nor industrial secret, nor any technology whatsoever has been neither transferred, nor disclosed, neither to Praxen, nor to Defkalion, nor to any other Greek company whatsoever and currently Andrea Rossi and EFA are not planning to deal with any other project in Greece.
Not one single test, of the many demonstrations of the E-Cat technology held around the world, has ever been done in Greece and no E-Cat has ever been brought, produced, or assembled in the territory of the Ellenic Republic: so not only the technology is still fully owned by Andrea Rossi’s company, Leonardo Corporation, but it still remains a well preserved industrial secret.
Any declaration or public announcement of third parties claiming possession of rights on the E-Cat technology and/or indide knowledge of said technology, as well as any statement of third parties in conflict with the above facts shall be considered a fake and treated as misleading information.
Andrea Rossi is the inventor of the “Method and Apparatus for carrying out Nickel and Hydrogen Exothermal reactions” (known to the general public as E-Cat) for which international patent demand no. WO2009/125444 is pending and Italian Patent office has already been issued on April 6th, 2011 the final patent no. 0001387256.
EFA Energia da Fonti Alternative s.r.l. is incorporated in Italy.
Leonardo Corporation is incorporated in New Hampshire, USA.
EFA srl- Via Marsili 4- 40124 Bologna- Italy
When asked about the reasons behind this sudden change, Mr Rossi continued in the comment section:
“I prefer that the reasons will be cleared by a judge by a verdict. Facts, not chatters, as usual with me. Our attorneys have filed a suit.
I confirm that our 1 MW plant will be put in operation in the USA, after an agreement we made last week with one of the most important entities of the USA; the tests will be made by the highest level scientists you can think of. I cannot give the names, until after the test. To the test will attend the highest level scientific journalists I know.”
Andrea Rossi also assure the ongoing roll-out of the E-cat by further stating:
“Leonardo Corporation and EFA will continue their regular work and commercial strategy”
Question by reader: “What are the implications of this on the contruction and delivery of the 1MW reactor? Is the last week of October still a date to consider?”
“Of course! When I say a thing that depends on me, I maintain it: the 1 MW plant will be started upin October, in the USA.”
So to summarize this dramatic event in the E-cat story:
- Praxen nor Defkalion, nor any other Greek company whatsoever holds any rights for the production of the E-Cat or for any other exploitation of Andrea Rossi’s technology.
- A law suit has been filed.
- The 1MW plant demo will still be held in October but in the USA instead of Greece.
- A new agreement has been made with one of the most important entities in the USA, name will be disclosed at the demo in October.
- Leonardo Corporation and EFA will continue rolling out their commercial strategy
