“We decide to replace the composite materials commonly used for yacht building, in favour of new eco-sustainable technologies. In place of glass fibers, that aren’t reusable or recyclable once in the resin, we decided to use bio-based fibers to reduce our carbon footprint. Furthermore, in order to obtain a recyclable composite we tested a new resin that allows to separate itself from the fibers and reuse the polymer with normal industrial processes.”
