Resumen:
Una pyme estonia ha desarrollado una unidad portátil de reciclaje de césped artificial. Se trata del primer sistema portátil que realiza el proceso de reciclaje in situ y fuera del terreno. La principal ventaja competitiva es la posibilidad de reciclar césped artificial y obtener materias primas, reduciendo los costes totales de la vida útil de las instalaciones y ofreciendo una solución de gestión sostenible al final de la vida útil. Se buscan socios con el fin de establecer acuerdos de cooperación técnica, joint venture o licencia.

Details

Tittle:
Complete on-site synthetic turf recycling solution.
Summary:
An Estonian SME has developed a mobile synthetic turf recycling unit. It is the first mobile synthetic turf recycling system that performs recycling process on-site and off-the-field. The main competitive advantage is that unit enables to recycle synthetic turf to raw materials, thus reducing the total life-cycle costs of the installations, offering a cost-effective and sustainable end-of-life management solution. Types of cooperation: technical cooperation, joint venture or licence agreement.
Description:
The Estonian SME with over 20 years of experience in the field of sport installations has developed an innovative way for synthetic turf removal and recycling. Conventional synthetic turf recycling technologies enable only low-efficiency infill separation from the artificial grass, which are also time consuming, expensive and unsustainable.

The offered technology is the most advanced complete synthetic turf removal system that consists of the following processes.
· Old synthetic turf removal: artificial grass removal process done within 8 hours. The removal tool cuts the entire full-size football pitch to only 30-rolls, compared to alternatives 120-130 rolls, enabling to remove the old synthetic turf with minimum damage. The artificial grass is rolled up and recycled into separate materials on-site.
· Infill separation process: old grass, drying and thermoplastic elastomer are separated from sand. Process is done on-site and recycled materials can be reused in new turf installation. Separation process is done in 3 days.
· New grass installation: installation process in 3 days.
· Filling new grass with recycled sand and thermoplastic elastomer from old turf.
· The mobile recycling line is fitted into only a 20-feet sea container, containing all necessary equipment and ensures the mobility of the system.
The solution is currently available on the market. The objective of the cooperation is to find partners for further development of the solution and partners for licencing the offered technology.
Advantages and Innovations:
The developed technology has clear advantages over alternative synthetic turf removal systems. No comparable solution exist on the market in terms of cost-effective, quickness of removal and environment friendliness.
Environmental advantages
- Enables reuse about 95% of the used materials in new artificial grass application or as a raw material in other industries together with.
- 100% infill materials and polyethylene reclaim.
- 4x faster turf removal enabling re-installation.
- 6x reduced transportation needs, leading to 95% less CO2 emissions.
Cost-efficiency advantages
- Offered solutions removes the old turf in just 1 day, compared to competitors 3-4 days. The entire turf can be recycled into separate materials (sand, rubber, polymers) in 3 days off the pitch, thus increasing the effectiveness and speed of the whole field renovation process.
- A full-size football field renewal process can be completed within 7 days (counting only working hours), while competitors do the job in minimum 10-12 days.
- Compared to closest competitors, our solution increases the old turf removal speed by up to 4-times, ensures 2-times better infill separation, and reduces the entire football field renewal process time by up to 2-times.
Therefore in total, offered technology helps to lower the synthetic turf end-of-life management costs by up to 40-50% and increase the artificial grass sustainable management recycling rates.
