If alternative materials were used to fill the artificial turf, pollution could be avoided. Some artificial turf systems are mainly filled with natural materials such as quartz sand, cork and lime and only small parts with plastic granulate. Consequently, less harmful infill material is used but this is not a 100% solution without microplastic.

How artificial turf microplastics restrictions could...

If this position is adopted and a ban put into place, it relates specifically to the use of microplastics in artificial turf – so would only impact plastic derived infill, such as SBR, TPE and EDPM, commonly used in 3G pitches. A ban would thus involve the removal and replacement of that infill material with an organic alternative.

Jun 16, 2020· A European Chemicals Agency ECHA suggestion could potentially place a ban on the use of rubber granules for infill materials in artificial turf as the granular infill materials from end-of-life tyres ELT or other synthetic elastomers used in artificial turf are classified as intentionally-added microplastics. As such, ECHA’s Committee for Risk Assessment RAC recently recommended a

Restriction proposal for intentionally added microplastics...

The granular infill material that is typically used in artificial turf pitches is understood to be an ‘intentionally-added microplastic’, but neither ECHA nor the European Commission are proposing that these pitches should be closed. The European Commission has requested ECHA in 2018 to prepare a proposal for restriction of intentionally added microplastics in the framework of the REACH regulation.
