Star Scientific signs world first hydrogen deal with Philippines Government
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.
