There is an ongoing discussion about the nature of the Andrea Rossi Low Energy Nuclear Reactor. In a previous energy catalyzer guide, Sergio Focaldi, Rossi’s collaborator who is a Professor Emeritus from the University of Bologna has made the claim that the E-Cat is a nuclear device. Andrea Rossi has not given a definitive statement on this matter by keeping mum about operation theory of the E-Cat.
It should be noted that Rossi has been careful in naming his device as the E-Cat, which is short for energy catalyzer. He has been especially careful not to include nuclear in his name for his device. This must be because that would prevent him from importing the E-Cat and he can do away with the required licenses for any nuclear device.
All these developments is putting the US Department of Energy in a tight bind, according to an energy catalyzer guide. This is because if they continue to claim that Rossi’s E-Cat is not a cold fusion or a nuclear reactor, they are putting the agency outside of any involvement with the regulation for the E-Cat.
On the other hand, the N.R.C, wants to regulate the E-Cat so they would have to admit that it is nuclear after all. Such a turnaround could draw extreme criticism on them for not admitting this before. And if these agencies come into the picture, all the regulations needed by the E-Cat would mean delays in its implementation.
In a number of energy catalyzer guides, Rossi has made a lot of publicity about the E-Cat so there will be pressure from the public if this happens. The possibility is that if the DOE/NRC avers that the E-Cat is indeed a cold fusion device, the public would be assured about the credibility of the Rossi’s cold fusion technology. In fact, the public would consider it as a breakthrough invention that would be good for the ailing world economy.
