Optimal handling of artificial turfs

The project aims to reduce the artificial turf's emissions of microplastics and the amount of plastic that goes to landfill when the turfs are used up. This is done by evaluating the current system for handling artificial turf and the project is studying how to set requirements for material suppliers from a system perspective to find new ways to dispose the material. The project has a novelty value because artificial turf is not recycled despite beeing identified as a major source of microplastics and the potential for plastic recycling is considered to be large since there are many artificial turf.
