What Andre Rossi is afraid of?
Date: Saturday, December 13, 2014 @ 20:31:03 EST
In his blog Journal of Nuclear Physics Andrea Rossi is trying to transmit wrong information to the readers, when the subject is about the nature of the reactions occurring within his eCat.
For instance, in December 12th Frank Acland posted the following comment:

I am sorry I cannot understand Italian — because you apparently had an interesting interview with Salvo Mandarà today.
I have been reading some translated reports of the interview and
wonder if you could confirm whether these translated points are correct:
1. That the 1 MW plant operates with no external drive input for 3/4 of the operation (self sustain mode)
2. That Industrial Heat will sell heat (not plants)
3. That you have discussed the E-Cat with the CEO of Volvo
4. That the E-Cat reaction is not necessarily fusion
5. Massive sales will begin once the first 1 MW plant is verified consolidated
Andrea Rossi posted the following reply:
As we see, Andrea Rossi supressed propositally the question 4, Then in December 13th I posted the following comment:
And Andrea Rossi posted the following reply:
As the argument posted by Andrea Rossi makes no sense, I had posted the following reply:

Frank Acland, Wladimir Guglinski:
as you have read on the Report of the ITP after the Lugano test, energy
comes substantially from isotopical shifts, which is not a fusion, at
least for what concerns the final results.
what you say is disagree to what is said in the page 30 of the Report:
“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."
Isotopic shift has nothing to do with production of energy:
Surprisingly, Andrea Rossi did not aprove my comment. He had deleted it.
And the question is: why ??
Why is Andrea Rossi trying to convince people that Rossi-Effect is not caused by nuclear fusion???
of all, we note that Andrea Rossi is rejecting what is stated in the
page 30 of the Lugano Report, acording to which the device is "giving heat energy compatible with nuclear transformations "
could speculate that Andrea Rossi wants to avoid the resistance of the
academic physicists. That he thinks to be easier for the community of
physicists to accept his eCat if he convince everybody that his reactor
works without nuclear reactions.
But he dont need to be afraid
anymore on the resistance of the academic physicists, because the
results of his eCat was already comproved by three universities of
Europe, as stated in the Lugano Report published in October 2014:
soon his eCat is going to be put in the market, and the community of
physicists will be obliged to accept that his cold fusion reactor really
Therefore he dont need to be afraid of the resistance of the academics.
But perhaps there is another reason: an old dream of Prof. Focardi.
several comments posted by Andrea Rossi, he used to say that he
believes that it is possible to explain the eCat working by considering
the Standard Nuclear Physics, because Prof. Focardi told that it is
possible to find a theory based on the Standard Model, and those who
claim that cold fusion is impossible from the principles of the Standard
Model are saying such a thing because they do not know well the
So, other possibility of the Rossi's stubbornness
in rejecting nuclear fusion in this eCat can be due to his loyalty to
the Foccardi's dream.
But no matter what is the reason, what
Andrea Rossi is doing is not honest. Many of the readers of the
Rossi's blog are discussing about the Lugano Report, in order to try to
discover the reactions within the eCat, and to understand the mechanisms
responsible for cold fusion occurrence.
While Andrea Rossi is trying
to deceive the readers, by claiming that he will publish a theory
compatible with the principles of the Standard Model, and what is the
worst, he is saying nonsenses, as to claim that do not occur nuclear
fusion in his eCat, an affirmation in completely disagreement to the
