PowerGrass is eco-friendly and eco-compatible

The synthetic turf used in PowerGrass, is covered by the natural grass, therefore is protected from UV rays, thus lasts for long. However, it is completely recyclable by separating the backing from artificial fibers, then melting and recycling them for other industrial uses.

All materials used in the rootzone and drainage layers are taken from nature without transformations that alter the biophysical properties. At the end of the field's lifespan can be used again for the same purpose or other similar uses.

Geofill PG is mixed with sand and forms an ideal growing medium, together with drainage and irrigation system have been studied to ensure:

  1. playable field conditions, even during heavy rainfall,
  2. ideal conditions for grass growth,
  3. quick water infiltration and prevent flooding during storms,
  4. disperse excess of water in the existing soil, without adding to the flow rate of the sewage system,
  5. retain the moisture necessary for the grass growth, leading to water savings,
  6. reduce water consumption by optimizing the irrigation system and take advantage of the water in the soil:
    • irrigation systems with 24 sprinklers distribute more uniform the water, thus obtaining savings of water and electric power,
    • roots develop deep in the soil and take advantage of the water reserves.

PowerGrass respects the environment

Natural grass is predominant in PowerGrass while the artificial turf is almost imperceptible to players. Natural grass keep the temperature low, consumes carbon dioxide CO2 and produces oxygen O2. Scientific studies have shown that about 3 m2 of grass produce the daily requirement of oxygen for a man, a pitch in natural grass produces more oxygen than one hectare of forest.

Natural grass avoids the pollution of groundwater. Gas exchange, micro-organisms habitat and nutrients occurs in rootzone, without leaching and contamination of groundwater. One scientific study demonstrated that uncultivated land has higher concentration of nitrates deep in the soil compared to a well-fertilized grass.

Geofill PG is a special designed soil conditioner, ready to mix with sand, to achieve a growth medium ideal for sport use, to grant playable surface during heavy rainfalls, and optimize growth conditions (air and moisture) for the grass which is under stress of intensive use. Water management with 24 sprinkler irrigation system is meant to promote healthy growth, thus is less susceptible to fungal attacks and save the most precious resource.

The solution to a serious problem ...

Despite the development of products of the highest quality, artificial grass has an expiration date that, at best, do not exceed 10 years of lifespan. The artificial yarns exposed to the sun reach half-life cycle (loose 50% of their strength) in about 3.5-4.5 years.

Remove the old synthetic flooring and deliver it to authorised landfill costs about 60,000 € and in the future is expected to increase in costs due to the reduction of landfills.

The economic crisis has seen many football clubs fail and the money scarce to build new pitches and restructure the existing. Nowadays, getting a loan to replace the old artificial turf becomes difficult. In certain cases some are still paying the old mortgage. Thinking about the future is difficult to predict: what is going to happen if the pitch will be abandoned, what if there are not resources enough for a replacement when the artificial pitch is going to be consumed?

Sintetico dopo 7 anniSintetico dopo 7 anni

La manutenzione è semplice e s'è applicata regolarmente il manto artificiale non ha una data di scadenza quindi non ci sarà bisogno di portare in discarica il vecchio manto come avviene invece con l'erba interramente artificiale dopo 6-10 anni.

Risparmio ecologicoRisparmio ecologico

Il PowerGrass genera risparmio all'investitore perché dura oltre 20 anni, all'impresa perché è facile da installare, al manutentore perché bastano pochi interventi per ottenere risultati eccellenti e all'ambiente perché produce ossigeno e riduce l'anidride carbonica, abbassa la temperatura e non viene conferito in discarica.
