Following thePordenonee-cat meeting, Italian web site nextme.it conducted an interview with Prometeon srl CEO Aldo Proia. The article has been published on the site and the main topic is about the current state of Proia’s business affairs. In the conference, Andrea Rossi presented new Hot Cat data to the public which showed positive testing results of the reactor done by Leonardo Corporation. It was a very important event that could affect the commercialization of the e-cat units. According to Proia, the business surrounding the LENR based device is going very well so far. It looks like there is not much problems to worry about. Nextme.it asked Proia about the effect of the meeting inItaly. Here’s a reproduction of the statement made by the Italian inventor himself:
“I can say that if the ‘ interest by some companies was already high before the conference of Pordenone, now it is even more . The comments that I recorded by these after the event, in fact, have been very positive and the business proposals vaguely mentioned by Rossi are highly attractive for an ‘ energy-consuming industry . I am therefore very pleased with what we have done so far, although we are definitely just the beginning.”
Frank Acland of E-cat World enumerated some few key points that come out from the interview on his website.
- The first product on the market will be the “Gas Cat” — i.e., a 1 MW plant which uses natural gas as the drive — it will be more economical in places where electricity is more than 9 cents per kW/h.
- After a payback time of about 4 years, E-Cat users will save 80 percent on heating costs.
- Italy and the United States are in pole position to be manufacturing bases of E-Cat products. The last place to get production facilities will be China, based on how intellectual property is treated there.
- He expects to see Hot Cat products on the market within a year (Rossi states ‘within 2013?
- He doesn’t expect that domestic E-Cat units will be available for two years based on certification requirements.
Remember what Rossi has stated before: Important news are on their way. And if you have been following the e-cat story for a long time now you will agree with me that there have been several important events that took place in just a short period of time since the first inception of the device.
