Andrea Rossi And His Engineering Roots
Born in Milan in 1950, the future physicist was familiar with metal carpentry from his childhood, when he was working with Luigi Rossi, his father. That's when he learned to use major carpentry machinery and that's where he got his start as a machine designer and builder, working in his father's machine shop. That is where his first seeds of love for machinery and his first fascination for complex mechanisms were birthed. In school he decided to continue on his path of learning as much as he about particularities of the complex world of science, by enrolling in the philosophy college. He wanted to know the intricacies of physics from mathematical and philosophical point of view. At the age of 23 Andrea Rossi completed his study at the University of Milan, having written and defended the thesis on the topic of Albert Einstein's Theory of Relativity and how it relates to the Phenomenology of Husserl.
In his youth he has already designed and built quite a few successful machines, acquiring patents for his inventions. At the age of 22 he founded a company titled Dragon in the field of energy, which was actually a division of "La Metallotecnica," his family's factory. Dragon provided the outlet for his patented inventions. He continues his research in the field of energy and waste, and in 1978 he published a book titled "The Incineration of Waste and Rivers Depuration," which was even used as complimentary textbook in the class of Chemical Plants at Milan's Polytechnic University.
Since his youthful days and into his adulthood Andrea was preoccupied with the idea of turning organic waste into oil by artificially creating natural environment for the process to take place. Once this physical/chemical revolution would take place, our resources would be innumerable and it would solve the problem of energy. This idea has so enveloped him that pretty much all of his inventions in one way or another were linked to this main idea There were many obstacles to overcome, but finally he arrived and the result was Reflupetrolio, which was implemented in 1978 by Petroldragon.
In 1990 after many tests and research work and many investments the physicist bought the Omar refinery, which at that time began the process of refining the acquired oil. Since his final product was made of waste, many believed he was producing toxic waste and thus he was subjected to many arrest and persecutions. Many years later Andrea Rossi emigrated to America and continued with his research, which brings us to the production of fusor energy by means of his current and main brainchild — Energy Catalyzer, also known as E-cat.
