The current European Football Championships 2024 in Germany will be played on natural turf. This is very costly to maintain, does not tolerate high frequency of use and has a limited service life of only 6 months in some cases. Artificial turf is easier to maintain and correspondingly popular. In Germany alone, there are estimated to be more than 5,000 artificial turf pitches and as many as 25,500 across the EU. The huge drawback: the enormous annual emission of microplastics in the form of infill material, the high CO2 impact and the anything but environmentally friendly disposal.
