According to Vice, Andrea Rossi, one of the scientists claiming to have demonstrated cold fusion, now has business units available for order, reportedly capable of producing 1 megawatt of clean power.
Rossi and his crew have been working on making both "home" and "business" size cold fusion reactors available?the home reactor has a capacity of 10 kilowatts of "clean, green and safe" energy, but is currently awaiting further testing and certification. But apparently, the bigger unit, which is essentially made up of a collection of E-Cats, is ready to roll off the assembly line.
The E-Cat allegedly produces 1 MW of power, and consists of 106 of the smaller units mounted together in a shipping container.
Brian Wang explains how each of those units works over at Next Big Future: "It's a seemingly simple device, consisting of a metal tube containing a small catalyst of nickel powder in nano size. The tube is filled at startup, including small amounts of hydrogen and is stated to produce a significant excess heat for several months."
