Orbit Recycling

Wertstoff aus dem All



More than 8,000 tons of space debris endanger all space activities.

Satellite operators pay more than 14-million-euro per year for evasive maneuvers.

Orbit Recycling is changing this.


Space debris is removed from the orbit and transported to the Moon for recycling.

More than 150 tons of aluminium can be regained from old European upper stages alone.

Large parts of the International Lunar Ground Station can be built out of it, e.g., walls, power lines or heat storage systems.


Since the debris is picked up in orbit, small propulsion units are sufficient for the Moon transport, which are to launch cost-effectively with European rockets.

This saves billions of euro in construction costs and reduces the risk of space debris collisions for all other space activities.
