Rossi invented a process to convert organic waste into oil for which, in 1978, he founded a company named Petroldragon. In the 1990s, following the collapse of the company, he was jailed for bogus environmental crimes and manufactured tax fraud charges. He was later acquitted and released. In 1996 -- without a penny to his name -- he emigrated to the United States, and quickly found employment. In January 2011 Andrea Rossi and Professor Sergio Focardi successfully demonstrated commercially viable cold fusion in a device called an Energy Catalyzer or "E-CAT" This device measuring 12"X12"X5" will revolutionize the home heating industry by converting mass into useable energy in the form of heat. The E-CAT is expected to be produced in the United States and sold on shelves within a few years. Many in the scientific community are anxiously awaiting the arrival of the E-CAT and should the product work...Andrea Rossi is expected to win the Nobel Prize.
