ECAT - A novel energy technology

Last update 7 February 2022

The so-called ECAT technology provides large amounts of thermal and / or electrical energy from very small amounts of hydrogen and nickel. The electrical power which is required to control an ECAT system is much less than the generated output power.

Until about 2020 the development and testing of heat generators and heat-generating power plants was in the foreground. So far they are not commercially available because of long-term tests, reliability tests, and troubleshooting. Some were installed and tested at third parties and undisclosed customers.

Then another potential ECAT product was in the foreground, namely a very efficient lamp which is called Ecat SKLed. It is a compact LED-based lamp with a luminosity of a 100 W LED lamp or a 700 W standard incandescent lamp. Yet it consumes only about 4 W electric power thanks to the Ecat technology inside. In the meantime the Ecat SKLed was put into the background or withdrawn.

Meanwhile another intended and pre-orderable ECAT product is in the foreground, namely a small electricity generator which is called Ecat SKLep. Some of its technical specifications: Dimensions 7 x 7 x 9 cm, weight 250 g, output power 100 W, input power 1 W, expected operational lifetime about 10 years. Also intended and pre-orderable are 1 MW and 2 MW power plants which are based on the small 100 W units. For further information see https://ecat.com

According to Andrea Rossi, the inventor of the ECAT technology, the Ecat SKLep converts inside light into electricity, see https://e-catworld.com/2022/01/21/ecat-sklep-light-energy-into-electrical-energy . Previously it was intended to replace the hydrogen and nickel in the heat-generating power plants every 6 or 12 months. That seems to be not necessary for the Ecat SKLep, at least not within the expected operational lifetime of about 10 years.

A German-language report about the Ecat SKLep demonstration on 9 December 2021 and the Ecat technology is published on pages 4 - 7 in the January / February 2022 issue of the NET Journal (ISSN 1420-9292) (in German).

Some information about the so-called ECAT SK unit: The ECAT SK heating technology was presented by a worldwide broadcast on 31 January 2019. The ECAT SK device comprises a heat exchanger for fluids and generates 22 kW heating power by using only small amounts of hydrogen (provided by a solid hydride material) and nickel powder and an electric input power of only 380 W. The dimensions of the ECAT SK are about 40 x 45 x 95 cm. The size of the internal reactor core - in which the low energy nuclear reactions between hydrogen and nickel take place - is quite small, namely 11 mm long and 3 mm in diameter. The filling of an ECAT SK unit with small amounts of nickel powder and a solid hydride material allows an operating time of at least one year.

The ECAT technology was / is considered as a LENR-based technology. LENR means Low Energy Nuclear Reactions which usually imply no harmful and radioactive byproducts. Broadly speaking it was assumed that hydrogen H (1) and nickel Ni (28) merge via LENR to copper Cu (29) which releases a large amount of energy. Meanwhile Andrea Rossi considers the  underlying physics in terms of dense electron clusters, electron-proton aggregates at picometer scale, and their formation via vacuum polarization and zero point energy. That is presented in the following paper: E-Cat SK and long-range particle interactions, Andrea Rossi (January 2019 and revised in December 2020): https://dx.doi.org/10.13140/RG.2.2.28382.48966/11 . The author of this website considers the zero point energy as a special case of the so-called space energy, ether energy, or vacuum energy which is presented in https://novam-research.com/resources/information-document.pdf

Report from the author of this website from 22 November 2015 about the ECAT technology (5 pages pdf): https://novam-research.com/resources/ECAT.pdf

There are indications for a new and harmful type of radiation - called strange radiation - which is emitted from LENR reactors: https://e-catworld.com/2018/10/05/strange-radiation-tracks-from-lenr-reactors-documented-by-alexander-parkhomov . The currently available results of studies indicate that this new type of radiation is most intense within a distance < 20 cm from the LENR reactor and significantly weaker for distances > 20 cm. Furthermore, it seems that this new type of radiation can be screened. Thanks to Dr. Felix Scholkmann for communicating this information.
