Thorn Valley Reclamation Projects
Pacific Northwest co-op creating sustainable infrastructure for off-grid manufacturing.
We believe systemic change in manufacturing is necessary to avert climate disaster (and worse).
Late-stage capitalism ensures that unregulated megacorps will churn out profit-margin-ensuring mass produced mediocrity until the planet literally burns around the workers ears.
The tools to create a sustainable reality are within our collective grasp.

- In 2017, the acquisition of a plasma unit allowed us to bring a titanium-capable smelter online.
- In 2018, we purchased a 20 acre test site in the badlands near our home.
- In summer of 2019, the test site was raided and burned.
- In 2019.Q3 we began focused cleanup of the waste and debris left by the raid.
- In 2019.Q4, we are expanding into our new prototyping and manufacturing site.
