GreenFields partners in first circular artificial grass processing plant in the Netherlands


In various countries in Europe and elsewhere is an urgent demand for clean, safe and circular recycling of artificial grass as it reaches the end its lifespan. Many municipalities, sports clubs and other organisations are seeking options to dispose of their artificial turf in responsible ways. TenCate Grass Group and GreenFields invest in the establishment of GBN Artificial Grass Recycling B.V. (GBN-AGR).


GBN Artificial Grass Recycling now presents a solution by recycling the annual supply of end-of-life artificial grass into new, high-quality, circular raw materials. GBN will kick off its project in the Netherlands, where in the spring of 2020 it will open its first innovative circular recycling factory, located in the heart of the circular cluster of the Port of Amsterdam. 


This solution is fully sustainable, both economically and in terms of environmental impact. It is also realistic, as it relies on a solid business case and was developed by and for the industry. GBN AGR works in close collaboration with several industry partners. This guarantees the investments needed to recycle sufficient volumes of artificial grass.
