Goodbye fiberglass. How composite works that recycles and doesn’t pollute

Northern Light Composites

Did you know that fiberglass cannot be recycled and therefore cannot be disposed of, with major consequences for the environment? A considerable problem that now has an alternative thanks to start-up Northern Light Composites (click here).

Northern Light Composites

At Milano Yachting Week – The virtual Boat Show exclusively find the ingenious solution that the three founders Fabio Bignolini, Andrea Paduano and Piernicola Paoletti came up with (and it works!) and they tell you how it came about and how it works in the video interview in their booth.

What have these “inventors” accomplished? Northern Light Composites has invented a product and process that retires the polluting common fiberglass.

1An alternative to fiberglass

It is a composite material with plant-derived fibers, which reduce the environmental impact at the origin because they require very little energy expenditure for their manufacture, as they come in fibers that are already long and aligned in nature. It is combined with a resin, Elium, which can be recycled, allowing the composite to be given a new life at the end of its life.

Here’s how it works

Find out in the Northern Light Composites booth (click here) through the unequivocal videos that their material is absolutely recyclable, reduces risks to people to almost zero while building a boat.

This innovation provides a solution to what is an underestimated but central problem today: how do you dispose of boats at the end of their life? It is also an important assist in favor of the environment.
