Rossi: "We have completed all the 330 modules of the 1 MW plant. Now goes on the testing of each of them and the construction of the container."

Here is a quick summary of the latest information and some questions and answers from Rossi's online journal.
- Each E-Cat in the 1MW plant can be remotely powered on and off.
- Main difficulty in producing electricity from the heat output - Efficiency
- R&D with the Universities of Bologna and Uppsala still ongoing.
- No more public demos. Customers and market will decide.
- Scheduled visits to plants will still be allowed
- October scheduled for commencement of 1 MW plant in Greece
- After Plant opens work will start on commercial operations
- Deuterium not involved or useful in the reaction
- Ampenergo to license and sell eCat products and technology to Americas
- Defkalion to license and sell to rest of world.
- Shipping containers suggested as ecatalyzer portable power stations
- NASA trying to replicate Focardi's earlier work.
- Studying steam engines fit for the E-Cats: (not an easy task)
Question - "What will be the maximum presure and temperature of the output steam?"
Rossi - "550 °C, 50 bars".
Question - "Does the reaction stop if temperature rises to Ni melting temp? This is rather important safety point, ie. is china syndrome possible?"
Rossi - "If Ni melts the E-Cat stops. It works only with powders. This makes it intrinsecally (sic) safe. And do not forget that we do not leave radioactive material, we do not use radioactive material ."
