Skyrora is researching and implementing technologies for recycling waste plastic into high grade fuels for road, air, and space transportation.
Through catalyst processes developed by our engineers, we are now able to customize the characteristics of fuel.
As a result, a premium kerosene meeting the rapidly evolving demands of the space industry was developed: Ecosene.

Environmentally Conscious Process

Skyrora uses a low-temperature catalytic pyrolysis process to develop Ecosene through methods that are as ecologically-minded as possible.
This eliminates the formation of dioxines and furanes, as well as lowers CO2 emissions by 70% compared to classic methods of fuel production.

Ecosene Uses the Following Types of Plastic Waste:

  • Polypropylene (PP)
  • Polyester (PE)
  • Polystyrene (PS) and their mixtures and analogues

Skyrora can also utilise metallised packaging from waste that is not usually accepted for recycling such as crisp packets, as well as plastic that has been impacted by UV rays or salt water and previously recycled plastic.

Considering the damage done to ecosystem by uncontrolled plastic dumps, and logistical complications connected to their distant locations, Skyrora suggests the following solution:
