RECARBON x nlcomp

RECARBON and NL Comp Join Forces for Sustainable Marine Solutions

We are thrilled to announce a groundbreaking collaboration between RECARBON and NLComp, aimed at pioneering sustainable solutions in the realm of marine engineering. Both entities are set to embark on a continuous partnership focusing on the development of innovative solutions for sustainable boating.

Through this collaboration, RECARBON and NL Comp are poised to revolutionize the landscape of sustainable marine engineering. By combining their expertise and resources, they intend to lead the industry toward a greener and more efficient future by integrating NLComp boats with RECARBON’s recycled carbon fiber products, such as RECOMB. These panels not only improve product performance by offering lightweight and rigid solutions, but also demonstrate sustainability through the reuse of waste materials. NLComp has already successfully tested RECARBON products on its first 30-foot sail – ECORACER 30 – and for a Dock Box, demonstrating its commitment to sustainable practices.

RECARBON and NL Comp are committed to developing cutting-edge solutions for sustainable boating practices. This involves the integration of RECARBON’s products into NLComp’s marine technologies, with a focus on enhancing the sustainability quotient of marine vessels.

The collaboration will also extend to the advancement of assembly systems for superstructures and structural components. Leveraging RECARBON’s RECOMB sandwich panels and REPLATE thermoplastic organosheet, both based on recycled carbon fiber, the partnership aims also to redefine assembly processes.

Furthermore, RECARBON products will be prominently featured in the NLComp sustainable materials e-shop, set to launch online in March. This collaboration underscores our joint dedication to making a tangible positive impact on both the environment and the marine industry.

Together, we are forging a path towards a more sustainable future for marine products and beyond.

DESIGN, DEVELOPMENT AND VALIDATION OF A RECYCLABLE COMPOSITE FOR YACHTING

Aims of the project and expected results
The end-of-life management of boats, due to the problems associated with the disposal of GRP, still has no solution and sees huge quantities of material abandoned in ports, on coastlines and at the bottom of the sea. Faced with this problem, which is global and increasingly important in terms of environmental sustainability, the CORINNA project aims to develop an alternative solution to the traditional composite materials currently used in the nautical sector. The project includes the research and characterisation of new materials for the design of artefacts made of innovative materials, the industrialisation of the production process, and the creation and testing of prototypes with the validation of the results obtained in comparison with traditional technology, also from the point of view of environmental sustainability, through a Life Cycle Assessment study.

LEAD PARTNER: Groupe Beneteau Italia, Northern Light Srl
PROJECT DURATION: 18 months- Start 3 August 2023
BUDGET: 512,110.00 €
AMOUNT FINANCED: 183,416.75 €
