 ESA and the European Innovation Council – the new body guiding the commercialisation of high-risk, high-impact technologies in Europe – has teamed up to crowd source ideas for implementing ‘circular economy’ technologies and sustainable processes in space.

The aim is to seek out concepts targeting the reuse and recycling of water, food, oxygen, nitrogen and other scarce resources from apparent waste material. And further to their use in space, these solutions should also have wider uses on Earth, creating synergies with terrestrial moves towards a circular economy.
