The restriction approved in Brussels will ban in the near future, the use of 0.5 mm recycled rubber granules (GVG - Granular Vulcanized Rubber) as infill in synthetic turf sports surfaces. It is a market that currently absorbs about 40% of the recycled rubber granules in Europe and in Italy GVG are currently used in about 5,000 sports installations.

It is thus necessary to find new market to avoid the collapse of the end-of-life tire recycling system and to support the chain of ELT recycling and the valorisation or recycled rubber in Italy, supporting the opening to new f the market flows.

The aim to present proposals for the future of a chain that has always had a strategic role for the national and global sustainability objectives.
