Products & Services


Hydrogen Energy Release optimiser (HERO®) is the catalyst for Star’s zero-emissions, hydrogen-powered future.

By swapping HERO® hydrogen power for a coal-fired boiler within an existing power plant, emissions can be cut while power stations can continue to operate.

Costs can be reduced by eliminating the need for infrastructure replacement and multi-million-dollar pollution control measures, potentially saving power providers $100 million to $250 million per year..

Star Scientific has launched a pilot program with Mars Food Australia, to conduct research for the use of HERO® to provide carbon-free industrial-scale heat in the food manufacturing sector.

In January 2021 Star Scientific signed an MoU with the Philippines government to help drive the country’s energy self-sufficiency plans through the use of green hydrogen.
