On September 5, 2023, during the 31st International Defense Industry Exhibition, Łukasiewicz – Institute of Aviation and Jakusz signed a cooperation agreement regarding HTP technology in order to optimize, develop and sell a method of producing hydrogen peroxide with a concentration of 98% and a suitably high purity. The agreement was signed in the presence of the vice-president for research of the Łukasiewicz Research Network, Remigiusz Kopoczek, by the director of the Łukasiewicz – Institute of Aviation, Paweł Stężycki and the president of the Jakusz management board, Bartosz Jakusz.
Łukasiewicz – Institute of Aviation and Jakusz are entering a new chapter of the cooperation, expanding it to HTP technologies. This is another step towards obtaining relatively cheap hydrogen peroxide with a concentration of 98% and at the same time a breakthrough in ecological and high-performance space propulsions.
HTP class hydrogen peroxide is a strong liquid oxidizer and, at the same time, relatively the safest, single-component propellant used as rocket fuel. HTP has similar physico-chemical properties and can replace hydrazine currently used in the space industry, which has a very high toxicity. HTP class hydrogen peroxide with a concentration of 98% is one of the most serious candidates to effectively replace it. Its production method is easy to use, inexpensive and environmentally friendly.
