- Artificial turfs with an unbound base layer and shock pads reduces the environmental impacts compared to the use of same turf on an elastic layer and bound base layer. The environmental impacts of the artificial turf using shock pads in combination with an unbound base layer were lower for all the indicators analyzed.
- The greenhouse gas emissions and the total environmental impacts due to the disposal of the artificial turfs using shock pads with an unbound base layer can be even reduced by about 30 % compared to artificial turfs using elastic layer and unbound base layer.
- We can therefore easily claim that the environmental impact of our shock pad construction is not negligible – but very small compared to the total system impact.
