Polytan’s “Green Technology” marks out a new generation of highly developed products that combine cutting-edge technological expertise from the plastics industry with the functional and ecological benefits of renewable raw materials or alternative technologies that protect the climate.
Since 1969 our name has been synonymous with uncompromising quality and functionality when it comes to synthetic sports surfaces. Polytan has always attached great importance to sustainability and a low environmental impact. As a responsible full-service provider, we ensure the appropriate and conscientious use of resources at each step in the life cycle – from the selection of raw materials through production, installation, use and maintenance, to disposal and recycling. Our certified environmental management, in accordance with ISO 140001 since 2015, underlines this claim.
Development and Design
Sustainability starts with the design and development of our products.
We also set uncompromising quality standards when selecting the raw materials used for our products.
The reduction of negative environmental influences also plays an important role for Polytan production.
Usage and Maintenance
The service life is one of the most important prerequisites for ensuring a positive eco-balance of synthetic turf.
Recycling and Reuse
Even after their active career, our products are far from over.
The future of plastic is renewable
In line with the objectives of the EU Commission’s strategy for a plastics and bio-based economy, we are also working hard on researching the use of bioplastics and CO2-based plastics, which are already usefully supplementing our oil-based product portfolio and, in the long term, may even gradually replace it. We are working on this initiative together with leading companies from around the world such as Braskem, Covestro and the infill specialist Melos who, just like Polytan, is part of the Sport Group GmbH.
