Pulsar Fusion | UK's first green rocket 

Initiating the next steps in sustainable space propulsion

Together with Pulsar Fusion, we supported in the development and testing of a green (non-toxic) hybrid rocket engine capable of launching small rockets into orbit.

The unique hybrid fuel system combusts nitrous oxide, high-density polyethylene (HDPE) and oxygen to create thrust. Its exhaust is largely water vapour.

The rocket uses HDPE as its sustainable fuel source, thereby using commonly recycled plastic often found in household waste such as milk bottles.

The engine is very power dense requiring very little fuel, and for its size it produces one of the lowest carbon footprints in the world.

The use of HDPE provides access to a sustainable fuel source, utilising commonly recycled plastic often found in household waste such as milk bottles.

The result is an engine that has an extremely low energy production requirement and outputs one of the lowest carbon footprints in the world for an engine of its size.

Pulsar Fusion Fusion propulsion

Accelerating the science of today into the technology of tomorrow

Innovative rocketeers, Pulsar Fusion, leverage scientific advances into commercial innovations across aerospace and energy. They set out to prove their hypothesis that nuclear fusion can propel satellites.

Together we took the concept from blueprint to thruster by learning rocket science on the way. The finished Hall Effect Thruster (HET) proves that fusion leads to propulsion.
