Recycling

The further development of the recycling economy is also on the agenda. Polytan is pursuing new paths when it comes to recycling, and in the future the company will offer to remove and reuse materials from synthetic turf pitches. Accrued materials are separated directly on-site. Sand and possibly also granulate no longer have to be transported but can be reinstalled with the new turf, which reduces CO2 emissions. Materials that cannot be directly reused on site are returned to the reusable material cycle. The premium synthetic turf material can also be reused for new products.

Recycling process for artificial turf

Even after their active career, our products are far from finished: for example, through leading recycling partners, we offer a process that allows us to recycle the entire synthetic turf system in a single-origin manner. In this recycling process, the entire artificial turf is first cut into sheets, then shredded and broken down into its components. While the infill granules can be used for the production of rubber flooring or moulded parts, the turf fibres and the substrate can be melted and recycled in the plastics processing industry.
