E-Cat – Third Party Validation
|August 11, 2012||Posted by Jack Cole under Andrea Rossi, E-Cat, University of Bologna|
A poster by the pseudonym of Cures posts on an Italian forum with regularity suggesting inside knowledge of the happenings with the E-Cat. Yesterday, Cures posts a picture of the recent incarnation of an in-progress test with the Hot Cat–as it is being called. The Hot Cat is alleged to sustain temperatures exceeding 1000C degrees.
Andrea Rossi has confirmed that ‘Cures’ is an insider, and that the independent tests were being performed by the University of Bologna. Apparently, because of the release of this photo, the test will be conducted again “officially” in October of this year.

AFTER THE LEAKAGE MADE BY AN INSIDER WITH THE THE NICKNAME “CURES” REGARDING THE TESTS COMPLETED ON JULY 16TH, WHICH HAD TO REMAIN UNDER NDA, I HAVE TO INFORM THAT:
THE TEST MADE ON JULY 16TH WILL BE REPEATED OFFICIALLY WITHIN THE HALF OF OCTOBER 2012 BY THE UNIVERSITY OF BOLOGNA AND THE RESULTS WILL BE PUBLISHED BY THE SAME UNIVERSITY.
Rossi later goes on to say the following:
Dear Davide C:
Actually, we all are very angry with the Deep Throat, also the professors of the University would have preferred to stay under cover untilthe publication. But somebody has not been able to tame the enthusiasm. It seems that the leak started in the USA.
Update: Andrea Rossi has further addressed the matter and confirms the identity of the person leaking the information. It would seem the anger has cooled.
About the tests: the precise dates will be decided in an agreement that we should reach at the beginning of September: obviously we have to accept their needs.
About Cures: He has been identified as Domenico Fioravanti, it appears that the data from the test made on July 16th comes from him. If it is true, it is due to an excess of enthusiasm for the results, that have been obtained in a test directed by him and by 6 Professors from two Universities. The data had to remain confidential, but he could not help to talk about this event and the remarkable results.
He is making these tests as a Consultant of a military Customer of us and now probably he will have problems for the leakages, even if I do not think it has been so important: sooner or later the same data will be published. I knew Ing Fioravanti when he was a Student of the Politecnico di Torino ( the Engineering University of Turin, Italy) because he was making a research for Prof. Cesare Boffa (one of the best Engineering Prof. of the time) regarding the new technologies of Electrostatic Precipitators. It was the year 1976 and even if I was 26 years old, I was at the times considered an expert of the sector, so I gave to Domenico Fioravanti much papers I had wrote and he also visited the electrostatic precipitators I manufactured in my factory of Caponago (Milan, Italy). Then we never met again. After 35 years (!!!) I received an email from him in the blog of the Journal, in which he congratulated for the E-Cat, and for me has been a delighting surprise to hear from him again. I contacted him privately and he explained to me that he was a Colonel Engineer, expert of missiles tests. One year later, when with our Military Customer we had to choose a neutral Consultant for the test of the well known plant of 1 MW, I proposed Fioravanti, whom they knew very well, because he worked with NATO, with the Pentagon at the highest levels and always for engineering connected with thermodynamic tests ( mainly nuclear carriers’ heads tests). So we all have been glad to choose him.
His intellectual integrity and his knowledge of the matter has allowed a job that has been considered highly professional from all the parties involved.
This is it.
