At the center of the MOU is Star Scientific Limited’s expertise, the Hydrogen Energy Release Optimizer or HERO®. The expertise is a catalyst that converts hydrogen and oxygen into warmth and water, with out degrading the catalyst. There is not any combustion, and the one outputs are warmth and pure water. The HERO® can generate temperatures past 700 levels Celsius in simply over three minutes, and it’s getting used as the warmth supply within the warmth exchanger system.
The goals of the MoU embrace:
- Studying the retrofitting of present coal-fired energy crops to run on the HERO® system powered by inexperienced hydrogen;
- Exploring the utilisation of inexperienced hydrogen manufacturing within the Philippines utilizing offshore wind sources;
- Investigating decentralised scalable energy techniques for all the Philippines’ inhabited islands utilising inexperienced hydrogen, HERO® and the brand new breed of supercritical CO2 generators;
- Using the HERO® system for decentralised desalination of ocean water.
As a part of the MoU, the Star Group will help the Philippine Department of Energy with the event and implementation of funding fashions to draw world financing for the totally different points of all of the initiatives as they develop.
