Creating artificial turf yarns with new recycling technologies for circular economy

Project description

Innovative solution for artificial turf waste

The market for artificial turf (AT), especially sports turf, has grown. However, this growth has been gradual and has also increased the amount disposed of end-of-life turf. Today, there is still no sustainable solution for the treatment and disposal of every AT component. The EU-funded Re-Match project has developed an innovative process that efficiently separates components and converts clean plastic fibres into a resin usable in producing high-quality turf yarns. The innovation provides a fully circular life cycle for ATs. The project will define and optimise a pilot plant for resin production and solve some problems such as user acceptance. The project will perform large trial-field demonstrations with already established partnerships with relevant players, such as football associations and municipalities.
