Since 1969, Polytan has specialised in synthetic sports surface facility construction and have extensive experience in elite sporting venues such as the Olympic Games, World Cup and Commonwealth Games. This will be the fifth Olympics where Polytan have installed a Poligras hockey surface.
Polytan sport surfaces are made in Australia and manufactured at Polytan’s Head Office in Melbourne allowing for higher quality control.
Global warming is an undeniable issue affecting our earth through the emissions of carbon dioxide (CO2) and other harmful air pollutants. These can have negative impacts on the environment and the Earth’s climate system. Together through environmental practises we can combat climate change and save our planet.
Tokyo and the FIH have this same green vision and in support of this Polytan have developed the first sustainable hockey surface, Poligras Tokyo GT, which was recently installed at Japan’s Oi Hockey Stadium – the 2020 Games tournament venue.
Poligras Tokyo GT is made from over 60% regrowable raw materials, saves on CO2 emissions and has reduced water consumption. The turf’s structure is also specifically adapted to a Bio Based PE formula enabling for dynamic and precise playability.
This latest green turf technology is a major breakthrough for the hockey community and introduces a Climate Positive Hockey approach for the 2020 Olympics Games and other sporting facilities around the world.
Did you know?
For every 1kg of I’m green™ polyethylene used in Polytan’s hockey fields for the games in Tokyo in 2020, almost 5kg of CO2 will be saved!
Earlier this year hockey pitches at the Townsville Hockey Complex were damaged due to a devastating flood disaster in Townsville, QLD. The Townsville Hockey Association chose Polytan to install the new eco-friendly surface at their local hockey facility.
Green solutions can save not only major facilities but ALL sporting facilities time and money while preventing the harmful effects of climate change.
