Our unique ARENA Concept, an innovative zero-waste method for recycling artificial turf on-site, was announced as the general winner of the eco-friendliness competition and it also received the most of e-ballots during public voting in its category. Technology developed by our company enables 100% of the materials to be reused in new sports fields or as recycled raw materials in other industries. It reduces CO2 emissions by 70% when compared to present methods of field renewal, solving the biggest problem associated with artificial turf fields – environmental pollution.
