A future powered by hydrogen arrives.
Star Scientific is a hydrogen research and development company dedicated to creating safe, reliable, affordable energy with zero emissions.
Star Scientific has developed a unique way to deliver safe, affordable energy with zero emissions. Backed by philanthropists and scientists who share a passion for solving this problem, Star has invested A$100M in Australian research and development to deliver on this ambitious but achievable goal.
Star Scientific is a global group made up of Star Scientific Limited, Star Scientific Singapore, Star Scientific Europe, Planet Power Systems and Planet Power Finance.
Partnering with industry and Government to put the necessary foundations in place to move towards a clean energy future that will improve the lives of people around the world without damaging the environment.
HERO®, is the catalyst for Star’s zero-emissions future. Leaders in hydrogen R&D, ensuring hydrogen’s role in the global energy transition. For over twenty years, Star Scientific has been focused on delivering clean, safe and affordable energy with zero emissions. They have established an A-team of scientists and business innovators who share a passion for hydrogen’s role in the new energy economy.
Hydrogen is taking the world by storm. With a history steeped in Research and Development, we have the science and the technology to put hydrogen into use today.
Behind this powerful heat source is the interaction of hydrogen and oxygen with a secret catalyst. Within minutes of the hydrogen interacting with the catalyst, HERO® safely reaches temperatures of more than 700 degrees Celsius.
The larger the surface area of the catalyst and the more hydrogen available, the more heat is generated. The only by-product is pure water.
Star Scientific has launched a pilot program with Mars Food Australia, to conduct research and planning for the application of HERO® to provide carbon-free industrial-scale heat for sanitation and other processes in the food manufacturing sector. During the 18-month program, Star engineering and finance teams will work with Mars in concert with the newly established Central
Coast Hydrogen Food Cluster – a collaboration between Star Scientific and Central Coast Industry Connect Limited, together with regulators and relevant government agencies. Once completed, it will provide a foundational framework for the development of other heat sources used in food manufacturing.
Hydrogen Energy Release Optimiser (HERO®) is one of few technologies that can put hydrogen into use today.
By swapping HERO® 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.
The cost to produce steam using HERO® is around the same as with coal, with significant cost savings achievable due to a reduction in coal handling and pollution control. This has the potential to save power providers between $100 million to $250 million per year.
Heating for buildings like our homes and businesses is one of the largest drivers of carbon emissions.
With its ability to safely reach temperatures of over 700 degrees Celsius in just minutes, HERO® can provide efficient and clean district heating; a municipal-level replacement for individual home heating systems.
HERO® can be placed in remote communities where it can quickly and reliably generate power at economical costs. HERO® can play a critical role in the developing world, connecting people to clean, reliable power and lifting them out of poverty.
Heat production can be one of the most energy-intensive parts of the production process for many industries.
HERO® can step in to create a clean, high temperature source of heat to affordably solve this challenge for industry, significantly cutting emissions outputs.
As demand for desalination rises, the concern is also growing that the process must be made more affordable and sustainable. HERO®’s clean, rapid heat generation can enable a more efficient desalination process, creating the clean water needed to sustain life without further harming the environment.
