Due to infill losses artificial turf pitches have become the focus of society, politics, and the media in the context of the microplastics debate. However, the previous estimates were uncertain due to the vague data situation. In order to conduct a comprehensive evaluation, it has been necessary to improve the data situation and to include further aspects, also outside the microplastic problem. The study makes a contribution towards this with this multi-client study together with the commissioning partners. The aim of the study is to create as objective an evaluation basis as possible for the various options for artificial turf in sports field construction and to provide recommendations for an environmentally sound, economical, and socially responsible solution.
