Australia-based green hydrogen research and development company, Star Scientific, is planning to build a clean hydrogen research and manufacturing facility in the Mesa del Sol district of Albuquerque, New Mexico. Star Scientific Limited signed a letter of intent with Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham while she was in Sydney attending a summit Thursday on hydrogen and the energy sector.
This landmark partnership between Star Scientific and New Mexico to build a cutting-edge clean hydrogen facility to the heart of New Mexico, reaffirms the state’s commitment to green energy and innovation. Star Scientific’s expertise in hydrogen research is well-known, and this endeavor promises to be a game-changer.
This expansion is projected to create around 200 new job opportunities, highlighting New Mexico’s appeal as a hub for clean energy investments and sustainable employment. Star Scientific’s decision to choose New Mexico is a testament to the state’s proactiveness in supporting green initiatives.
Star Scientific’s Investment in New Mexico’s Hydrogen Facility
The planned research and manufacturing facility in the Mesa del Sol district of Albuquerque is expected to span 50 acres. The Star Scientific will invest $100 million into this project. This sizable investment will lead to the construction of multiple buildings dedicated to administration, design, testing, and laboratory research, all aimed at harnessing the power of hydrogen for industrial-scale heat production.
Star Scientific is renowned for its patented HERO technology, a revolutionary system that catalyzes hydrogen and oxygen to produce industrial-scale heat without emissions of greenhouse gases. This groundbreaking technology is not only environmentally friendly but also versatile, finding applications in diverse sectors, including off-grid power, desalination, and heavy industrial production.
The partnership with New Mexico signals the Star Scientific’s commitment to addressing the growing demand for clean energy solutions in North America. As the world moves towards more sustainable energy sources, Star Scientific’s presence in the Mesa del Sol district of Albuquerque stands as a beacon of innovation and eco-consciousness.
This strategic collaboration between Star Scientific and the state of New Mexico in the Mesa del Sol district of Albuquerque is poised to lead the way in clean energy innovation, showcasing the state’s dedication to fostering a sustainable future. With a strong focus on research and manufacturing, this project promises to drive economic growth and provide valuable employment opportunities while making significant strides in green hydrogen technology.
