Andrea Rossi has shared a little bit of information summing up the capabilities of the Hot Cat. Bernie Koppenhofer asked several question of Mr. Rossi:
“1) How efficient has it become using the Carnot cycle gauge? 2)Have you made any progress with using thermoelectric process? Do you see a future in using thermoelectric process? 3) in what areas of research has your partner helped you the most?”
The Carnot cycle numbers are as expected – 30 to 35% efficiency.
Andrea Rossi also stated that they have not made any progress in using thermoelectric process. However, concerning whether or not there is a future in the thermoelectric process, Mr. Rossi said:
“(I) should have the crystal ball”
Of particular interest is what Rossi has to say about which area his U.S. partner has been of help. He said:
“all of them”
That, as usual, is a big statement contained in a three-word comment. “All of them” means that the new partner is making manufacturing facilities available. “All of them” means that there is money for continued development and research. “All of them” means that Rossi has all of the workers he needs to continue development of the LENR devices he has built. This is encouraging, especially in an atmosphere in which LENR is still a scientific step child. And, considering the world economy, it is also encouraging to know that the money will be there to keep Andrea Rossi and his team going.
