World Hydrogen Award for NSW company

Star Scientific has won an award for its HERO technology at this year’s World Hydrogen Summit. The NSW company received the Sustainable Energy Council’s inaugural World Hydrogen Awards’ Industrial Application category.

Accepting the award, Andrew Horvath, Chairman of Star Scientific, said, ‘We are seeing a shift toward hydrogen as the energy choice of the future and we are very excited by the opportunities that HERO will bring.

‘HERO is the missing link in the hydrogen supply chain, turning green hydrogen into continuous industrial heat without combustion. It can be used from the heaviest of industry such as coal-fired power stations, through to scaled down local assets for specific locations such as district heating and desalination.’

Chris Hugall, Managing Director, Sustainable Energy Council said, ‘The SEC is delighted to launch the World Hydrogen Awards at this year’s World Hydrogen Summit. The response in nominations was more than we could have hoped for, with some outstanding individuals and projects nominated.

'The World Hydrogen Awards are the only truly global awards to recognise excellence within the Hydrogen industry and we look forward to continuously serving the industry and celebrating its fast-paced advancements.’
