Is the e-cat real III. The scientific basis – Why scientists question the e-cat
In the previous report I have reviewed the history of the e-cat. We received encouraging feedback (about 70% positive), including some well reputable and distinguished experts in the LENR community. Of course it wasn´t expected to get positive feedback from all sides. We noticed that many people have a reflex that criticism of one particular technology (or company) would automatically translate to the whole field of LENR science. Notwithstanding, I want to point out very clearly that our previous analysis only related to the e-cat of Andrea Rossi, and does not in any way intend to question the seriousness and credibility of other people efforts. But of course there is a real risk that in the event of an epic failure such adverse repercussions would occur.

- 21/12/2012 e-cat – the fading dream for free and abundant energy
Lack of independent verification, issues with patents and trademarks, questionable scientific basis – the e-cat dream for free and abundant energy is fading
- 22/03/2012 Mr. Rossi´s e-cat patent and black box approach
We analyzed Mr Rossi´s e-cat patent. We believe the patent lacks sufficient disclosure, is of speculative nature, the secretive black box approach is a risk for disallowance of the patent.
- 06/04/2012 Is the Rossi e-cat real ?
In this article we express our view on the e-cat device invented by the Italian engineer Andrea Rossi. Many questions of the validity of the claims remain due to lack of independent peer review and technical concerns about the experiments demonstrated so far.
- 19/02/2012 E-Cat ‘Cold Fusion’ Machine: Claims of Fraud Heating Up
After a series of demonstrations, claims of fraud heating up about the e-cat, claimed to be the ultimate solution of the world´s energy problems.
- 31/05/2012 Rossi claims 600 degree e-cat working
Rossi reports significant progress on a working device operating at 600 degrees. This may take the e-Cat to levels where it could produce superheated steam as used in conventional electrical generation
