Cover2It was published this week, in the latest issue of the bi-annual magazine Elforsk Perspektiv, an article on the 2nd Third Party Report (TPR-2) and on the Hot-Cat. The title: “Isotopic changes indicate ‘Cold’ nuclear reaction: Elforsk following developments“.

Elforsk Perspektiv is a trade magazine published by Swedish energy R&D organization Elforsk AB, which since a couple of years takes a very serious look at LENR and partly financed the two tests on the Hot-Cat performed in 2013 and in early 2014.

The article covers the results obtained in the last independent test, including the isotopic analysis of fuel and ash. So, the contents are not new, but it is significant that an important national industry organization is taking the LENR, and especially Industrial Heat‘s E-Cat, more and more seriously.Art_Eng

Indeed, the involvement of Elforsk began in 2012, when it was asked by a group of Swedish scientists to support the evaluation of an invention: the Energy Catalyzer, or E-Cat. After the first positive evaluation conducted by Swedish and Italian researchers, they budgeted 230,000 Euros per year in 2013 and 2014 for further investigation on the E-Cat.

Soon after the release of the 2nd Third Party Report, Elforsk published in its website an article in which the CEO Magnus Oloffsson said about such report the following words:

“Clear isotope changes in the analyzed fuel indicate nuclear reactions at low temperatures. It suggests that we may be facing a new way to extract nuclear energy, probably without ionizing radiation and radioactive waste. The discovery could eventually become very important for the world’s energy supply”.

    If I remember well, Raney nickel has already been proposed in the past as a possibility, because of explosions occurred in some early Rossi’s experiments.
    But it should be a quite dangerous catalyzer and as far as I know there are no other clues, released photos of grains included, indicating that it has been or it is used.

    Please consider new Rossi United States Patent Application Publication No. US 2014/0326711 A1 Pub. Date Nov. 6, 2014. Try to find out the chemical content of the “fuel”. The only definition given has been: “The fuel material may be a solid including nickel and hydrogen”. That is a poor definition in the light of the prior art; See e.g. the article “Cold Fusion Catalyst” on the former blogsite “E-Cat Site” merged with “Cold Fusion Now” and now removed from the web. Why? Does the fuel contain nickel and as hydrogen source LiAlH4 or LiH decomposing on heating and yielding hydrogen anions (H-) together with Li+.
