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.

Stars' Mission

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 -

Today we have a clear responsibility and a golden opportunity to conquer one of the most important challenges of the 21st century —the challenge of climate change —with an environmentally sound and economically strong strategy, to achieve meaningful reductions in greenhouse gases in the United States and throughout the industrialized and the developing world. It is a strategy that, if properly implemented, will create a wealth of new opportunities for entrepreneurs at home, uphold our leadership abroad, and harness the power of free markets to free our planet from an unacceptable risk; a strategy consistent with our commitment to reject false choices…. “

President George W Bush reiterated the challenge in his State of Union Address on January 28, 2003 -

A simple chemical reaction between hydrogen and oxygen generates energy, which can be used to power a car producing only water, not exhaust fumes. With a new national commitment, our scientists and engineers will overcome obstacles to taking these cars from laboratory to showroom so that the first car driven by a child born today could be powered by hydrogen, and pollution-free. Join me in this important innovation to make our air significantly cleaner, and our country much less dependent on foreign sources of energy.”

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
