The STARS Technology Corporation Founders have succeeded at designing and perfecting a new technology that produces low-cost, low-carbon hydrogen from water, natural gas and the sun. Their innovation in developing microchannel technology has made it possible to build a compact steam-methane reformer (SMR) that uses solar power to augment the energy needed to extract hydrogen from water and methane.
Our mission is to provide a clean alternative fuel to replace hydrocarbon as the basis of the World's energy economy. We are doing this by providing a compact hydrogen generating system that can supply hydrogen fuels to your location at a fraction of the current costs.
President Bill Clinton, issues the following challenge to scientists and engineers during a speech before the National Graphic Society on October 22, 1997 -
President George W Bush reiterated the challenge in his State of Union Address on January 28, 2003 -
The Founders responded to these Challenges. The Dish-STARS™ technology:
Provides a method to transform hydrocarbon fuels to clean hydrogen fuels.
Eliminates the high cost of installing hydrogen pipeline infrastructure
Eliminates the costs of transporting hydrogen from a central producer to the point of use
Decreases carbon dioxide emission per Joule of energy used
Reduces CO2 emissions by 68% and NOx by 99% per mile driven in light duty vehicles
Empowers fuel cell vehicle service stations to locally produce hydrogen fuels
Hastens the transition to hydrogen fuel cell vehicles
Provides an efficient way to store excess energy generated solar and wind energy.
Creates hydrogen generating systems that can be mass produced to reduce the cost of the systems
Creates new markets by producing low cost hydrogen where it is needed
Provides an “At Scale” solution for fuel cell electric vehicle fleet operators
