Since presenting the “Go Sailing, for a Change” project to the audience of the World Yacht Racing Forum in 2010, GS4C worked hard to set up a network of companies, leader in their business, who could provide the know how and the technology to make Zero Landfill manufacturing possible. Projects have been designed to maximize the impact on media and foster market awareness on circular economy to set a new standard for sustainable development for the composite industry.
A sustainable and recyclable Mini650 to race single handed across the Atlantic in a race known as the Minitransat. The Loop650 will be the first boat entirely made in sustainable fiber and recyclable bio based epoxy resin.
A patented technology to produce out of autoclave shells in Fiber Metal Laminate by Vacuum Assisted Resin Transfer Moulding (VARTM). This will allow sectors other than the aerospace industry to benefit from FML advantages in terma of lightness and mechanical charactersistics.
The proposed process will allow the construction of cement-based thin shells with a complex shape to target both the textile reinforced market and the plastic reinforced market, greatly extending the range of market opportunities.
