A recent rumour has been doing the rounds implying that the agreement between Andrea Rossi and Defkalion has been terminated. This has now been confirmed by AR on his blog. On it’s own, this is a bomb that should shake anyone’s confidence in the façade that has been built around the eCat. Absent proof, much has been made of circumstantial evidence (here and elsewhere). An important part of that evidence centred on Defkalion’s involvement and the comments they made on their forum.
When live, the forum was a key source of (what should have been) quality information. From it, we were told that Defkalion has tested the eCat many times, always achieving a gain of 19 or more. As we can see below, either they were lying or the press release on AR’s blog is giving incorrect information. Either way, this looks bad:
