Hello, I’m Matthew Travis, Founder, and COO of Aphelion Aerospace.
Aphelion Aerospace is a nanosatellite launch services company based on the principles and values of social responsibility by respecting the climate and being environmentally friendly.
Why is it important to be environmentally friendly in this industry?
Historically, space launch has involved fuels and chemicals directly derived from fossil fuels. Not only is this environmentally unfriendly, but this is becoming a serious concern around the world.
We at Aphelion intend on challenging this unhealthy trend by providing non-fossil fuel alternatives, which will in turn reduce the reliance upon these dangerous chemicals. By doing so, we tremendously increase our chances of reducing this global concern.
Our Climate Pledge
The key to our mission is accountability.
Now, more than ever, we need bold steps to continue down this path.
We at Aphelion believe in being environmentally friendly and respect the climate with everything we do, not just launches and satellites.
We believe that environmental initiatives are important for businesses of all sizes, and so does Amazon. Amazon has created a program called The Climate Pledge where you can commit to regular reporting, monitoring, and auditing your carbon emissions on a regular basis.
It is our intention going forward to sign this climate pledge, and we look forward to making a future announcement about it.
How We’re Reducing our Carbon Footprint
The most important thing is recognizing what makes an impact.
Our propulsion technology for our rockets and satellites is among the most environmentally friendly technologies in the world, and are unique in the industry.
Our patent pending proprietary propellant and chemical formulations are all made in house, and are a huge contributor to what sets up apart from the rest.
We Want to be a Part of the Solution
We’ve developed a low cost, green, reliable system for our propulsion systems, but we didn’t stop there. Every aspect of our company down to our launch vehicles and factories are either battery powered, or will be converted to only use renewable solar energy.
This is an exciting time for our industry.
This is a moment of great concern for not just lifting up global economies, but climate change and the environment as well.
We at Aphelion are proud to be at the forefront of addressing all of these issues with our customers, our partners, and internally with ourselves.
We are aware of what it takes to be responsible for mitigating climate change while also making an impact. We see that climate change can only get worse before it gets better, and we are proud to be a resource that can protect our planet.
Join our Mission
The Solution and the prevention of future challenges begins today, and we are taking a lead in that.
Earth is going to be our home planet forever, and we’ve made it our mission to go to extreme lengths to preserve it.

Myself and the team would be happy to answer all of the burning questions you may have.
