Cork infill application in the SV Germania 90 Schöneiche’s artificial turf football pitch.

Sustainability and high performance for the “Forest City” Schöneiche’s artificial turf pitch

The SV Germania 90 club and the municipality of Schöneiche chose a cork-based natural infill for artificial turf when they rebuilt their pitch in Germany.

Main Goal

Schöneiche, near Berlin, is known as the “Forest City”. The framework of this project was to install a sustainable football pitch, with eco-friendly components, avoiding microplastics.

The project consists of partial rebuilding of the old artificial football pitch, with microplastic-free infills, supplied by Amorim Sports.

Cork infills are not only an environmental-friendly solution, they also provide comfort to the players due to cork’s ability to absorb energy and have a lower energy restitution, compared to synthetic solutions.

  • Product

    Amorim Sports supplied 6.5 tons of the cork-based infill, Amorim Nature 130, certified in accordance with RAL GZ 944 (for natural infill).

    During the installation process, Amorim Sports responded to all the contractor’ doubts concerning the installation steps, entry into service and maintenance guidelines.
