Three companies join forces to recycle synthetic grass for sports fields
Synthetic grass turf can now be recycled and processed for other applications in the sports sector, such as shin guards, elbow pads and bibs, as well as furnishings, as three companies involved in the production of synthetic grass for sports fields - Versalis, RadiciGroup and Safitex, have agreed to collaborate so grass turf can be recycled like other plastics. To assess the project’s environmental performance, the three companies carried out a Life Cycle Assessment, each for its own product, quantifying the environmental impact with scientific data and calculation rules which were verified by an independent certification body.
