On July 23, 2011 a conference titled, “Has cold fusion became a reality?” was held in Viareggio, Italy.
During the meeting, Andrea Rossi and others discussed their cold fusion technologies. It was also revealed a rival company has formed named “Nichenergy”, that is capable of producing nickel hydrogen cold fusion without catalysts.
Andrea Rossi’s E-Cat (Energy Catalyzer) technology has became well known this year, due to it being validated repeatedly by qualified scientists, multiple third parties, and of course Defkalion Green Technologies, Inc. The possibility that it produces nuclear fusion (between nickel and hydrogen) at low temperatures has turned into a proven fact. However, Andrea Rossi’s method is not the only way of producing cold fusion. There are other variations of nickel-hydrogen cold fusion cells, and of course materials other than nickel can be used. During a recent conference in Viareggio, Italy titled “Has cold fusion became a reality?”, several cold fusion researchers gathered to discuss their latest research. The result of the meeting is that we now know that the race to get cold fusion technology into the market place is heating up, as more competitors are developing products.
So far, two websites have provided coverage of the conference, which was hosted by Delta Energy (a solar power company). The first is the blog http://22passi.blogspot.com/ of Daniel Passi, who has been following the saga of Andrea Rossi’s cold fusion technology for months. The second, is the Cold Fusion Now blog. A breakdown of what took place at the conference was provided by Daniel Passi’s blog, and is presented here cleaned up a little (because Google translator does not always do a good job of translating).
