What?

Plastic-based granules are replaced by lime-based granules.

Why?

Leakage of microplastics from our artificial turf has been an environmental problem for a long time. By removing the plastic granulate that leaks microplastics, we reduce this burden on the environment. Switching to lime-based granules is a step towards creating an artificial grass that is completely lime-based.

How?

The site granules were absorbed and replaced with lime-based granules purchased from the manufacturer GAIA. By testing the playing properties under different conditions, the design of the granulate will be developed. A change has already taken place and the product has changed its appearance.

Impact target

Lime-based material replaces plastic and thus reduces the load on our environment.
