ARENA Concept is the first on-site handling solution that enables used artificial grass to be reused and/or recycled in an economically sustainable way. It covers the whole process from the removal of used artificial grass with special machinery to complete infill material separation, cleaning, drying, recycling and reuse. Used artificial grass could be reinstalled to new location or recycled on-site. It enables 100% of materials to be reused in new sports fields or as recycled raw materials in other industries.

ARENA Concept makes constructing sports fields more affordable for clients, while ensuring the highest degree of quality and solving the biggest problem associated with artificial grass fields – environmental pollution.

Benefits:

  • We guarantee the highest possible quality for your fields
  • Complete on-site service. Up to 50% lower costs for used field utilization and new field installation
  • Speed – 4x faster old turf removal and 2x faster full field renovation
  • Can also be implemented on arena-type football fields with a narrow entrance bordered by stands
  • Damage-free process. Machines do not damage the turf, shock pad or heating solution under the turf
  • Environmentally friendly zero-waste technology. Service provided all over Europe

Step 1: Artificial grass roll-up

We remove the artificial grass from the full-size football field with the Crab in one day. The grass is rolled up in 4-metre-wide strips, with a total of just 30 rolls. Pressure on the subbase is minimal, and there is no damage to the shock pad or heating system. The Crab will also remove the e-layer in-situ (artificial grass shock pad) for recycling.

Step 2: Infill reclamation

Rolls are processed off the field by the Arena Master, where they do not interfere with installing new artificial grass. We reclaim 100% of the infill from the grass. After this process, the grass will be rolled again. The infill mixture can undergo a separation process.

Step 3: Infill separation

If requested, the infill will be dried, cleaned and separated (to rubber and sand) by the Wizard module. The processed infill materials meet the highest quality standards and can be reinstalled. If possible, both the grass and infill are reinstalled as they are.

Step 4: Reinstallation

Used artificial grass is usually reinstalled as a second-grade training pitch, school field or sold on the aftermarket. There is minimal loss of material in the installation process. Perfect lining by demand. Possibility to use new lining material.

Step 5: Leftover recycling

Materials that are unsuitable for reuse will be recycled on site. The Mill will grind the e-layer and artificial grass rolls into smaller grains. The e-layer rubber crumbs will be reused on-site or as raw material in other industries. Crushed artificial grass will be processed by the mobile factory that will recycle the PP and PE waste into new materials in the plastics industry (granules for various plastic moulds).
