Survey of Chemical Substances in Consumer Products, 100, 2008

Mapping, emissions and environmental and health assessment of chemical substances in artificial turf

03-11-2008

The report contains a review of different European projects on the health and environmental effects of artificial turfs and results of laboratory tests on turfs that are being used in Denmark. The results show that there are no real problematic effects on health, but environmental effects can be expected under the worst circumstances. The effects can however be minimised by e.g. optimal drainage.
