Future of synthetic turf
Apr '08
After its first successful conference earlier this year in Nice, ESTO is looking towards the future. Very important subjects need to be addressed and the industry has to develop common solutions, better positions in which creative thinking is essential.

Enrico Buriani (Tessiture Pietro Radici) who has taken the interim chairmanship of ESTO when Arnoud Fiolet left DOMO, declares: “Now that ESTO has achieved its first challenge which is to be recognised as the organisation in Europe covering the interests of synthetic turf, we have to maintain the momentum.

The Executive Committee is determined to continue building on the achievements to ensure that ESTO's objectives of quality and reliability improvements will be reached.”

First, on September 29/30, all the Members and the Associate Members will get together to explore in working groups how synthetic turf can meet environmental challenges and technically demanding solutions for sports' surfaces and to agree on common positions.

There are many aspects that need to be addressed together and within such working groups we have the best knowledge and expertise to come up with answers. Problems such as “end-of-life” synthetic turf, the infill challenge, the environmental benefits of synthetic turf and ageing problems are some of the subjects that the industry stakeholders will discuss.

This will be a major event where all actors will be given the opportunity to express their views and participate in groups working together on the future.
