This blog is operated by the European Space Agency (ESA) as an informal source of additional information for anyone interested in Clean Space activities.

ESA has long been committed to maintaining the highest environmental standards for European citizens. Through Clean Space, ESA is pioneering an eco-friendly approach to space activities. On the ground that means adopting greener industrial materials, processes and technologies. In space it means preserving Earth’s orbital environment as a safe zone free of debris.

This blog is updated by Clean Space team members. We will certainly do our best to get you the latest information on EcoDesign for space activities, technologies for Space Debris Mitigation (SDM) and Active Debris Removal (ADR).
