On July 3rd in Genk, Belgium. Invited guests were shown the latest in technology that ASIE has to offer. This time it was our Wizard mobile separation machine for mixed sports infills. The Wizard allows the mixed infill removed from artificial grass to be processed so that each component can be reused.
With some countries interpreting waste management requirements differently, the need for “certification of origin” of materials that have been recycled is eliminated as they never leave the job site.
“It’s the optimal solution” says one international visitor, “this process removes any need to transport materials off site and as it is not an industrial process, it can operate anywhere. When can you start?”
The Wizard allows you to reuse the infill back into the new field without all the hassles that follow “Waste Management” in your country as the whole process is done on site, nothing is transported or removed thus the existing certificates and testing apply to the same product.
We are excited to bring the Wizard to Belgium says Eric McGuire, ASIE European representative. “The Wizard is just one tool of ours that is making a huge difference in how governments, municipalities, cities and football clubs look at how they manage their fields and investments. We see that our involvement in this change is fast becoming the trend of on-site recycling.” He continued, “With this technology, we are making a strong statement that the artificial grass industry can be waste free and CO2 neutral. “Without finding sustainable solutions, the industry will find no other way to adapt to societies demand of reducing “wasteful plastics””.
