Global waste and carbon footprint are huge problems. We decided to step forward and do something, primarily to provide affordable, green and sustainable space launch options. But applications will never stop there. The real benefit of space is on earth.
Developed inside an engineering university, OrbitX is taking pride of RP-2 or renewable RP-1 which is being used heavily by the spaceflight industry. RP-2 is derived from plastics.
Solving dirty waterways and food wastes are not easy. OrbitX decided to create a renewable fuel option to petrodiesel which is currently being used by most engines.
