Protecting the planet and the people

A circular economy for space

Orbit Recycling

With more than 10,000 tons of waste into orbit, it’s time to change. Instead of just seeing a threat, Orbit Recycling recognizes the value of debris, it’s recycling potential. By introducing the concept of a circular economy, Orbit Recycling supports the sustainable exploration of the Moon. Dangerous debris is transformed into valuable material, without the need of costly transportations from Earth. Using concentrated sunlight, Orbit Recycling locally casts new objects on the Moon out of space debris aluminium, like solar towers, shelter walls or heat storage solutions for the upcoming lunar ground station. This globally unique approach addresses pressing societal challenges, such as environmental protection, sustainable space exploration and debris removal.
