RWTH university sports equipped with bio-based, recyclable artificial turf
The pitch was inaugurated by TFI and ITA with a soccer match to kick off the BioTurf research project. As part of BioTurf, an artificial turf made of bio-polyethylene (PE) was developed whose chemical properties hardly differ from conventional, petroleum-based PE.
Particularly noteworthy is the absence of infill granules, which not only improves the playing experience but also minimizes the environmental impact of microplastics. This was made possible by innovative tufting structures that pave the way for a sustainable future in the sports surfacing sector.
We look forward to further implementations of our BioTurf project in the future.
