A new scientific report on the E-Cat has been released, providing two
important findings from a 32-day testrun of the reactor — together
leading to the clear conclusion that the E-Cat is an energy source based
on some kind of nuclear reaction, without radiation outside the
The first is an energy release which puts the reactor way beyond conventional (chemical) sources of energy.
The second is a dramatic shift in isotopic composition in the fuel
after the testrun, meaning changes have occurred in the atomic nuclei of
the elements present in the fuel.
The report is entitled “Observation of abundant heat production from a reactor device and of isotopic changes in the fuel” (Download here) and
is written by Giuseppe Levi, Evelyn Foschi, Bo Höistad, Roland
Pettersson, Lars Tegnér and Hanno Essén, all of whom also wrote an earlier third party report on the E-Cat.
In the concluding remarks they write:
“In summary, the performance of the E-Cat reactor is
remarkable. We have a device giving heat energy compatible with nuclear
transformations, but it operates at low energy and gives neither nuclear
radioactive waste nor emits radiation. From basic general knowledge in
nuclear physics this should not be possible. Nevertheless we have to
relate to the fact that the experimental results from our test show heat
production beyond chemical burning, and that the E-Cat fuel undergoes
nuclear transformations. It is certainly most unsatisfying that these
results so far have no convincing theoretical explanation, but the
experimental results cannot be dismissed or ignored just because of lack
of theoretical understanding.”
The authors are very careful not to make any decisive conclusions on
how the reaction occurs. Yet, they make some interesting remarks, among
them considerations on similarities with observations in astrophysics.
Without any optimization with regard to input power,
the reactor produced between 3.2 and 3.6 times the input power, and a
total energy of 1.5 MWh from about 1 gram of fuel. The reactor was
switched off according to plan, with no signs of the reaction
slowing down. As I point out in my book An Impossible Invention — an
energy source of this kind will have huge consequences for humanity,
possibly solving a series of global issues.
