Concept

The use of innovative technology that allows the processing of synthetic lawns on the spot in an environmentally friendly way in just a few days. The LIFETURF project plans to use the concept of innovative technologies and develop a completely new approach to make synthetic artificial turf technology transparent, CO2 neutral and environmentally friendly.

Context: 90% of the removed synthetic turf is disposed of or incinerated, generating 600,000 tons of waste each year.

The general goal of the project

The aim of the project is to demonstrate technical feasibility, environmental and economic sustainability and the possibility of re-implementing a new business and consumption model for the management of synthetic sports lawns, aimed at reuse, reduction, recovery and recycling of products.
