Low Energy Nuclear Reaction
Test Gennuary 14 2011 Bologna
ROSSI. I started in 1987. As facts show, my process strongly differs from previous efforts: nobody has managed to manufacture a working device so far. Facts count, not words.
ROSSI. Exactly. In fact, mine is not “cold fusion,” but weak [force] nuclear reactions. Pons and Fleischmann did heavy water electrolysis with a palladium cathode and a platinum anode. I don’t do electrolysis, I don’t use either platinum or palladium and I use temperatures that manage to melt nickel.
ROSSI. Yes, I have a very precise idea and I think I understand perfectly the mechanism, but to explain it though it would be necessary first that the patent gets approved. For now we can demonstrate that the reactors work, and that they do not emit radiation; this is an additional benefit of being able to use the device without risks. The rest will come over time.
22PASSI. Regarding the patent, on the Internet it can be read that the request was made on behalf of your wife. Why?
ROSSI. I’ve invented the method and the apparatus. Prof. Focardi had a fundamental role as a consultant, according to a definite agreement. He gave important contributions during the experimental phase, on the research method and on security systems, thanks also to his deep experience with nickel-hydrogen reactions.
22PASSI. What is the role of the University of Bologna regarding the apparatus you’re about to patent?
ROSSI. With the University of Bologna we made a research agreement which will be extended in order to study radiation and to research and develop certain details.
22PASSI. Clearly, once the catalyzer will be commercialized, there won’t be trade secrets anymore. Will you allow independent laboratories to check the inside of the device only after that, or will that happen before?
22PASSI. Many people doubt your credibility due to the Omar-Petroldragon scandal from the 1990s. On your Web site you provide an explanation of the events which frees you completely from any blame, pointing out that the judicial documents confirm that you have nothing to do with the environmental pollution and fraud accusations. Why then didn’t you bring a lawsuit to the Italian State in order to obtain compensation, given the huge economic (and image) losses you’ve had?
ROSSI. The answer to this question is thoroughly described in the http://www.ingandrearossi.com Web site. I don’t want to answer that here briefly: whoever is interested in that matter should read carefully what I’ve written on my Web site.
22PASSI. Among those people who believe that the Energy Catalyzer works, there’s doubt that it could be a target of cover-ups. They have fears that whoever currently controls the energy market (fossil fuels and uranium) would be willing to pay you enormous amounts of money in order to keep your invention locked in a safe.
ROSSI. They will have to step over my dead body. This technology is the meaning of my professional life and the reason of my personal life.
22PASSI. That is one more reason why we should all wish you a long and healthy life. Without stepping into conspiracy theories, do you think that your discovery is putting you in danger? That somebody could be planning to take you out, and it’s now almost certain, as happened almost fifty years ago to Enrico Mattei?
ROSSI. I think they will try to take me out more subtly, like they did years ago with the Omar-Petroldragon incident. However, today there’s the Internet and newspapers do not have the power to annihilate people anymore.
ROSSI. They will merge and each will take its role.
22PASSI. You’ve stated that you will soon disclose a new 1 MW prototype (by arranging in parallel or serially – I haven’t understood clearly – units similar to that demonstrated in Bologna). Could you better explain this step and tell us when you expect a public demonstration?
ROSSI. It’s exactly as you say: modules like that verified in Bologna will be serially connected in order to increase temperatures and in parallel to increase energy at a constant temperature. I hope we will be able to unveil it by September-October 2011.
ROSSI. It’s a European Newco, affiliated with the largest businesses in the sector. They will issue soon a press release to announce themselves to the public.
ROSSI. Honestly, this is the reason why I think it’s worth working on it.
