As the world continues to consume energy, the energy supply continues to decline. In the U.S., fracking has already begun to extract hard-to-reach natural gas and oil from the ground. In some cases, the water table has become polluted.
Dr. Joseph Fine recently commented to Andrea Rossi about mass production of E-Cats, as a solution to the continuing trend to consume fossil fuels world over. On the Journal of Nuclear Physics, Mr. Fine stated:
“As the inventor of this new Energy source you know the Industrial E-Cat and its cousin the Hot-Cat have to be made ready for mass production. The human efforts and material resources needed to develop the first 10 systems will need reinforcements to produce the first 10,000 systems and the first 100,000 systems etc. I hope I will find a way to help.”
Mr. Fine has touched upon a true stumbling block to world-wide use of E-Cat technology. There are simply not enough manufacturing plants in existence to provide the units already on order. Yes, the manufacture of E-Cats and Hot Cats all over the world will be a great employment opportunity, and boost economies of all participating companies, but that will take, in some cases, years to get rolling.
Still, Mr. Rossi is optimistic:
“…With the US Partner we are ready for a mass production in relatively short term.”
As recently pointed out in E-Cat World, even the manufacture of a hundred thousand plants would hardly make a dent in the needs for energy in the world. And, considering that that huge number of plants would take years to produce, it would appear that we still won’t have a disruptive technology.
This can play out to the advantage of E-Cat technology, though, because it can become widely used and ensconced in many countries and sites, proving its worth, as the manufacturing plants are built. Hopefully, the new partner in the U.S. is prepared to invest plenty of money in manufacturing.
