LENR fanatics are getting technorgasms over this one. But the rest of the world couldn’t care less.

Who really knows what the truth is. However, very often it is easy to spot a falsehood.
This patent adds nothing to Andrea Rossi’s credibility, and the funny thing is that it is not even about LENR or cold fusion. It is just a controlled Italian water heater, which I don’t think would work, if build according to specs using the described fuel.
(Last updated on August 25, 9.17 pm CET). Today Andrea Rossi was granted a patent on his LENR based heating device the E-Cat. The patent, which has the filing date March 14, 2012, can be downloaded here: US9115913B1
As far as I understand, the patent describes the so-called low temperature E-Cat that Rossi showed in semi-public demonstrations at several occasions in 2011, and which is also used in an ongoing 350-day trial of a 1 MW plant, but since it describes core parts of the technology it is probably also valid at a certain extent also for more recent E-Cat models with higher operating temperature.
Note that LENR is not mentioned explicitly in the patent, but also note that the contents of the fuel mix are specified — lithium and lithium aluminium hydride as fuel and a group 10 element, such as nickel in powdered form as the catalyst. This is important…
