Applied Carbon was established by a group of materials science students whilst on their foreign placement year at the Liberty space station after they discovered a new treatment for waste carbonaceous material. A short crowdfunding campaign allowed them to raise the money needed to purchase a small workshop on Liberty, from which they have expanded to become a major player in the environmentally friendly production of plastics.
Applied Carbon is an independent supplier of plastics based out of Liberty. Their products are completely sourced from reprocessed waste carbonaceous material and as such generally have only 90% of the value of the property of the plastic they seek to emulate. The price of the material is generally 70% of the price of the new material, not including shipping. Plastics are available as sheets, extruded beams or pellets for injection moulding. They will buy waste structured carbon (e.g. wheat sheaves) delivered to them for $2.50 per kg.
