The first on-site mobile solution for complete synthetic grass recycling and materials reuse

Periodic Reporting for period 2 - ARENA (The first on-site mobile solution for complete synthetic grass recycling and materials reuse)

Reporting period: 2017-07-01 to 2018-06-30

Advanced Sports Installations Europe AS (ASIE), a company with over 20-years of experience in synthetic grass fields, has developed the first on-site recycling solution that enables complete used synthetic grass recycling and materials reuse for environmental and economic sustainability.
We aim to achieve a zero-waste concept and improve the environmental sustainability of synthetic grass installations and pitch renovation. Our unique ARENA concept enables to eliminate current landfilling and reuse 100% of the materials in new fields or as recycled raw materials in other industries.
In the SME-Instrument´s phase-2 project we have finalised our technological development, conducted pilot-tests for ARENA concept market validation, improved our service model and made preparations for large market uptake in targeted markets from 2019.
Our unique equipment will increase used synthetic turf reinstallation and recycling globally. Also, our 50% faster field renewal speed and up to 50% lower cost of the work makes artificial grass fields´ sustainable EOL management more accessible for field owners.
Our field tests with improved equipment show that we exceed the state-of-the-art level and can provide a full-service range with the lowest impact on the field and the fastest project delivery time at the market. Also, our equipment improves used turf and infill reuse potential significantly, being able to separate all materials on-site and clean them for reuse in new fields or other industries. Our extended services and new business models make high-quality artificial grass fields more accessible, thus improving sporting and leisure opportunities in EU and abroad.
