Used synthetic football turf gets second life in Gent. Would you like to see our machines in action? Please contact email@example.com for the address of the project site.
Current synthetic turf field needs to be renovated and removed materials recycled.
A first for Belgium, a full-size field will be rolled up and materials handled on-site using ARENA concept – first on-site handling solution that enables used synthetic turf materials to be reused and/or recycled in an economically sustainable way. Machines used for the project, funded by the EU Horizon 2020 program, will not damage the under-laying sub base, doesn´t require materials to be transport long distances and the most important – keeps all the materials away from landfills and incineration stations.
Planned works consist of used synthetic turf removal with infill materials (sand and rubber) inside the 4 m width rolls. These rolls will be processed next to the field to separate all the infill materials from synthetic turf. ARENA concept is a waste-free process.
