Sustainable Environmentally-friendly Advanced-Composite Zero-Emission Boats
Conceived with technology developed for aerospace and renewable energy applications, C-PET is an innovative, high-performing and cost-effective advanced composite manufacturing technology aimed at the marine recreational boating segment. It will lower the cost of boat hulls by 30% by employing a cutting-edge manufacturing process that eliminates Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) during production and leads to a reduction of hull weight by 45%. This, in turn, enables the battery-powered boats to compete with fuel-powered alternatives by reducing their operational costs by 60% and greenhouse emissions from power generation to zero.
