Biodegradable grass infill – GreenFill


Top quality polymeric infill without microplastic pollution

The sports performance, playing comfort and durability of artificial turf pitches are largely determined by the infill. GreenFill has been specially designed to deliver top performance for both the athlete and the field owner.

The grain is produced industrially and as a result is of a uniform quality. It is soft and elastic and provides excellent shock absorption. This increases the playing comfort (such as an excellent sliding performance) and prevents injuries. Thanks to the constant size and high wear resistance, grit formation is out of the question. The infill does not float or pulverize. Because of that, the drainage capabilities of the artificial turf field remain guaranteed and a refill of the pitch is limited required. GreenFill is weather resistant, guaranteeing a playable field all year round, regardless of the weather conditions.

Last but not least, GreenFill  degrades in soil within a year (in accordance with ISO17556), thus avoiding microplastic pollution outside of the pitch, but without jeopardizing the required long life time on the pitch.

Polymeric infill without environmental and health issues

Just like other polymeric infills, GreenFill offers an excellent sportstechnical performance. GreenFill is produced industrially and is therefore of a uniform quality; furthermore, the material is recyclable and soil biodegradable. As a result, it does not lead to waste of natural resources, nor to microplastic pollution, smell or leaching out of toxic elements.

Conventional polymeric infills do not degrade in nature. Therefore, they cause microplastic pollution when they migrate from the artificial turf field to the environment next to it. This problem will increase when the infill contains toxic substances. By applying GreenFill you are safeguarded from these kinds of problems.

When choosing for GreenFill, field owners don’t have to worry about soil contamination, as fungi and bacteria which are naturally present in soil, convert the infill into humus, water and carbon dioxide. These fungi and bacteria do not appear on artificial turf, hence the decomposition of the infill only happens in the natural environment outside the field. That’s why GreenFill assures the same long life span on the pitch as conventional polymeric infills do. 

On top of all this, GreenFill can be recycled at the end of it’s lifetime, thus reducing the need for scarce natural resources.

Biodegradable and recyclable artificial turf
no more microplastics and end-of-life waste problems’

GreenBlade is a fully recyclable and compostable artificial turf system.  This innovation was developed by Senbis Polymer Innovations at request of the Dutch Ministry of Health, Welfare and Sport and in collaboration with TenCate Grass, Edelgrass, Antea Sport and Sweco Nederland.

GreenBlade is thé solution to the growing waste problem caused by end-of-life artificial turf. Because conventional artificial turf systems are composed of different raw materials, it is difficult or impossible to separate the different components at end-of-life and thus to make new artificial turf products out of these. GreenBlade, on the other hand, is both fully recyclable and also compostable. Even if the carpet is not fully recycled, it still will not contribute to the plastic waste mountain. The material can be converted to compost that can be used as e.g. soil fertilizer. On top of that, worn out yarn that has spreaded into the environment during usage will not lead to microplastic pollution, as bacteria and fungi will also convert these particles into natural components

From August 2021, EHS’85 in Emmen, the Netherlands, plays football on the world’s first fully compostable artificial turf pitch. The top layer consists of the GreenBlade carpet, which has been filled with GreenFill. In addition to their biodegradability, both products meet all the applicable sportstechnical requirements, resulting in a top football experience!
