Star Scientific selected as 2020 S&P Global Platts Energy Awards finalist

Hydrogen research and development firm Star Scientific has been named Emerging Technology of the Year category finalist in the S&P Global Platts Global Energy Awards, an annual program recognising outstanding innovation, leadership and exceptional performance in the energy sector.

The Sydney-based company has developed Hydrogen Energy Release Optimiser (HERO®), which is designed to be deployable for small scale power solutions in remote locations or scaled up for large legacy industrial sites such as steel mills and coal-fired power stations where it can be retrofit to ensure continuity and sustainable power generation.

This green hydrogen-fuelled technology can rapidly produce a clean, zero-emission source of heat, reaching over 700 degrees Celsius in minutes.

The larger the surface area of the catalyst and the more hydrogen is introduced into the system, the more heat is generated. The only byproduct is pure water.
