Three papers by FoBiG on “ERASSTRI – European Risk Assessment Study on Synthetic Turf Rubber Infill” published

Rubber granules manufactured from end-of-life tyres are used as in-fill material for sports fields. In a project on initiative of the European Tyre and Rubber Manufacturer‘s Association (ETRMA), and the Crumb Rubber Industry Platform (CRIP) FoBiG, together with partners Eurofins and Labosport, evaluated human health risks from this use. The results were published as three sequential papers in the scientific journal „Science of the Total Environment“ and are publicly available as „open access“.

ERASSTRI - European Risk Assessment Study on Synthetic Turf Rubber Infill – Part 1: Analysis of infill samples
ERASSTRI - European Risk Assessment Study on Synthetic Turf Rubber Infill – Part 2: Migration and monitoring studies
ERASSTRI - European Risk Assessment Study on Synthetic Turf Rubber Infill – Part 3: Exposure and risk characterisation
