A FUTURE POWERED BY HYDROGEN.
Star Scientific Ltd is the developer and patent holder for the unique and global award-winning catalyst, the Hydrogen Energy Release Optimiser (HERO©). This catalyst combines hydrogen and oxygen and assists it to form water, and at the same time releases significant amounts of heat, almost instantaneously and without combustion, therefore not generating greenhouse gases.
Uniquely, the catalyst is a ‘true catalyst’ in that it is not used up in the process, and therefore reverts to its inert state after the
gases are removed. HERO© has two clear business cases with common elements. The first is that it provides a total heat and energy solution, without generating GHGs. The second is that it is scalable and transportable and therefore perfect for off the-grid systems.
Star Scientific is targeting process heat for industry and off the grid energy systems. It has commenced a process heat project with Mars Foods Australia.
Star Scientific is a private company with a research and development facility north of Sydney, Australia and with offices in Zurich, Singapore, and San Francisco.
In March 2022, Star Star Scientific won the 24th Annual South by Southwest© (SXSW) Innovation Awards New Economy category, which recognises the most innovative tech developments in the connected world.
