RESPONSIBILITY FOR THE FUTURE
ACTING SUSTAINABLY MEANS ACTING CONSCIOUSLY
Polytan has always attributed great importance to sustainability and environmental compatibility. As a system manufacturer with our own research and development, production, sales and inhouse installation technology, we can stay true to this claim in our own special way. We focus on ensuring that resources are appropriately and carefully used in each and every life-cycle phase, from selecting the raw materials to production, installation and use through to disposal and recycling.
This ensures that all Polytan synthetic turf systems are manufactured on state-of-the-art machines in our production facilities in Grefrath located in North Rhine-Westphalia, Germany. By using environmentally compatible raw materials and energy-saving manufacturing processes, they meet all environmental requirements in accordance with the relevant national and international standards and fall well within the required limits. In 2014, we will also be launching synthetic turf systems made from sustainable raw materials.
CAREFUL USE OF RESOURCES
Our Central European production sites also ensure short and efficient transport routes in all European markets and therefore reduce the “grey energy“ of our sports surfaces. In addition, our synthetic turf systems allow for considerably more intensive use over natural grass, which above all yields noticeable positive effects for surface use in congested urban areas. Maintenance and servicing also require significantly less costs and resources than natural grass, thanks to dramatically less water consumption in particular.
As a responsible full-range supplier, we also have specific expertise and long-standing experience in repairing and refurbishing sports surfaces, which further improves the ecobalance of our products. And we are still there for our customers, even after the effective life is over, offering cost-effective solutions for the removal, reuse, recycling and recovery of our products.
