Abstract [en]

This chapter begins with a short summary of the history of energetic materials. It is emphasized that developments generally have been driven by the objectives of improving performance and safety of handling. In addition to these objectives, new materials should also be green. This requirement is considered in relation to green chemistry and other tools for improving the sustainability of new products. A definition of a green energetic materials from the principles of green chemistry is presented. The chapter goes on to analyze past and present attempts to introduce green propulsion technologies to civil space travel. This analysis shows that the development of a green propellant system and its associated engine system is a lengthy and expensive process. The chances of succeeding seem to largely depend on the size of the engine system.
