GLEBANITE® FOR MODELS AND MOULDS IN SHIPYARDS APPLICATIONS RATHER RESORTING TO MONOMATERIC SOLUTIONS

Despite the recovery of the boating industry today, the crisis in the field sector has brought with it a great amount of boats and related obsolete production equipment (Marsh, 2013). The Glebanite® project aims to create a possibility for all these products considered waste, giving a clear answer to the problem of their disposal, with particular attention to fiber-reinforced composite materials. The project prsented aims to trigger a Circular Economy process for the generation of a new recycled and re-processable materials and for a new economy to support recreational boating.

The project has as its starting point the engineering and systemization of the Glebanite material (secondary raw material derived from GRPs waste) for an innovative production strategy of nautical shipbuilding equipment through the use of CNC machine. The project thus straddles the main areas of Eco-Industry, Advanced Manufacturing and Sustainable Mobility.
