INEOS Britannia, the British challengers for the 37th America’s Cup sailing competition, have selected bioaqualife as their official sustainable wrap supplier.

The British sailing team are known for their application of cutting-edge technology and manufacturing expertise. Their goal is to develop a world-class race boat and reclaim the America’s Cup for Britain.

While the team focus on technological innovation, they’re also committed to environmental responsibility. This is evident in their choice of bioaqualife’s ‘biowrap’ product to protect their boat during transport to Barcelona, Spain, for the competition.

Biowrap is a revolutionary alternative to traditional shrink wrap typically used on boats.  

Made from biodegradable materials, biowrap breaks down through microbial action, minimising environmental impact.

This is a significant improvement over traditional shrink wrap, which often ends up in landfills.
