Our Mission

We offer a unique way to deliver safe, affordable energy with zero emissions. Backed by philanthropists and scientists who share our passion for solving this problem, we’ve invested $100 million in Australian research and development (R&D) to deliver on this ambitious but achievable goal and we will be investing much more in the future.

Our History

Star Scientific Limited was founded and set up by Andrew Horvath. Our early years were spent working to advance muon-catalysed fusion when a breakthrough discovery occurred. We discovered a breakthrough technology to convert hydrogen into heat without combustion. This became our HERO® – the Hydrogen Energy Release Optimiser.
