The first E cat International conference was a great success. People from all over the world attended. There were over 300 engineers, scientists, investors, business folk and clean energy entrepreneurs mainly from Germany and Switzerland. They were joined by the first international gathering of e cat licensees.
Each day there was a wide variety of presentation involving the ecat technology. On Saturday evening, inventor and manufacturer Andrea Rossi gave a detailed assessment of his current R and D project, that is, raising the output temperature of the e cat, which he calls the 'hot cat'. He stressed that this was still in R and D and that at least another 4 months work is needed to get it to a consistant stage. In the meantime- the 1 MW e cat industrial unit is ready for sale, with the intention of releasing one to an industrial company in North itlay to trial run it for 3-4 months. More on that later when we receive details.
Other important news was the release of the first 1 MW EU safety certificate documentations. Andrea personally showed me this certificate, and within a short period once some other paperwork is done, it will be released to the public. Once all entries are done, it will naturally proceed onto the USA and Australia. Obviously the domestic unit will take a little longer, but this process has began. Having the industrials unit passing with flying colors, the domestic units is on its way to safety domestic approvals.
William Donovan (USA), chief technical advisor to E cat Australia, gave one of the conferences most dynamic and well researched presentations, namely on using the e cat for cutting edge desalination techniques and various methods for heat to electricity conversion. We presented our ideas for the R and D company that will take the cat technology to the next level.
