“I am extremely proud of what we have achieved at Star Scientific to date and excited at what is ahead – green hydrogen is a critical energy carrier that will make cleaner, cheaper energy and heat possible, ushering in a new, cleaner industrial era.
“It is looking like a massive year for green hydrogen and an even a bigger one for the talented team at Star Scientific under the leadership of Andrew Horvath.”
Global Group Chairman of Start Scientific, Horvath says that major announcements about the company are on the horizon. “Mr Hingerty will play a key role in driving support for green hydrogen across business and government as the heat and energy choice of the future,” Horvath said.

Star Scientific: Significant momentum for hydrogen in Australia
For nearly two decades, Sydney-based Star Scientific has been working on how humanity can transition to a new energy economy, independent of fossil fuels that damage the environment and pose a threat to sustainable future growth.
Backed by philanthropists and scientists who share the company’s passion for solving this problem, Star Scientific has invested $85m in Australian research and development (R&D) to deliver on this ambitious but achievable goal.
Star Scientific’s major breakthrough is the Hydrogen Energy Release Optimiser (HERO®). It produces unlimited, affordable, safe and reliable energy – with zero emissions.
According to the company, this truly innovative source of dispatchable power and heat can propel Australia and the world to overcome the most difficult energy challenges.
