MIAMI, April 6, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Leonardo Corporation announced today that on March 29, 2016,
Leonardo Corporation received independent third party validation of the
overwhelmingly positive results of a nearly yearlong test of Leonardo's
1MW Energy Catalyzer ("E-Cat"). According to the inventor, Andrea Rossi,
the E-Cat generates a low energy nuclear reaction ("LENR") which
produces excess heat energy at a cost substantially below more
traditional energy sources. According to the independent third party
report, over the 352 day test period, the E-Cat consistently generated
energy at a rate in excess of six (6) times the amount of energy
consumed by the plant, often generating energy exceeding fifty (50)
times the amount of energy consumed during the same period. According to
Leonardo Corporation considers the results of the third party test to
be "an overwhelming success" and that "the world is one step closer to
the realization of a commercially available new, clean and efficient
The independent third party validation test was performed by Dr. Ing. Fabio Penon,
a Ph.D. in Nuclear Engineering, at the behest of Leonardo Corporation
and one of its licensees, Industrial Heat, LLC. as both desired
independent third party verification of the sustainability of the energy
production of the E-Cat over a prolonged period. "The results of Dr.
Penon's test was consistent with the measurements taken by the
representatives of Leonardo Corporation and Industrial Heat respectively
during the course of the test" said inventor Andrea Rossi.
"Leonardo Corporation is working
diligently with its licensees, corporate partners and material suppliers
to implement a production and distribution plan consistent with the
expected demand for the E-Cat units when they are made commercially
available" stated Rossi.
Industrial Heat continued involvement in the development and
manufacturing of the E-Cat is uncertain at this time. As stated in a
lawsuit filed by The Silver Law Group, P.A. on behalf of Leonardo
Corporation on April 5, 2016, Leonardo
Corporation believes that Industrial Heat breached the terms of its
license agreement and misappropriated Leonardo Corporation's
intellectual property relating to the E-Cat. Additional information is
available regarding the E-Cat at www.ecat.com. The lawsuit can be viewed at www.pacer.gov, Case No. 16-CV-21199-JLK, U.S. District Court, Southern District of Florida.
Leonardo Corporation does not anticipate that there will be any delay
in the commercial release of the E-Cat technology as a result of the
