Star Scientific signs world first hydrogen deal with Philippines Government
Berkeley Vale based Star Scientific Limited has signed a world-first Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with the Department of Energy of the Republic of the Philippines to explore the utilisation of Star's S&P Platts award-winning HERO® technology and hydrogen, to bring clean energy and desalinated water to a country currently largely reliant on imported fossil fuels.

The MoU heralds the hydrogen revolution and provides the Philippines an opportunity for energy and water self-sufficiency in an environmentally sustainable way, and the ability to offer global companies zero emissions manufacturing capability, unlocking economic development, with green hydrogen as a fuel source.

Global Group Chairman of Star Scientific Limited, Andrew Horvath, said he was proud that an Australian innovation had captured the attention of a national government.

"This agreement with the Department of Energy of the Republic of the Philippines represents a significant milestone in the development of the global hydrogen economy. 

The MoU will see Star Scientific and the Department of Energy of the Republic of the Philippines study retro-fitting existing coal-fired power plants to run on HERO® powered by green hydrogen.

They will also work together to explore the utilisation of green hydrogen production in the Philippines using an abundance of offshore wind resources.
