Brit rocketeer Skyrora reckons it'll be orbital in 3 years – that is, if UK government plays ball

The satellite launcher was Black Arrow. Black Knight, which also used HTP oxidiser, was a sounding rocket.

What I want to know is where Skyrora get its HTP - the last I read, rocket-grade HTP was no longer made by hydrogen peroxide suppliers, and I gather it's non-trivial to turn lower concentrations of hydrogen peroxide into what's best for rockets.
