Domo Sports Grass enriched with Pureti – Increased performance, healthier playersIncreased performance, healthier players

Pollution is everywhere, in urban areas as well as in rural areas, summer and winter. Human activity is the main cause and is exacerbated by certain weather conditions. Sulphur oxides (SOx) are felt from the 5th minute of intense exercise, Volatile Organic Compounds (VOC’s) increase heart rate, and airborne particles (PM2.5 and PM10) reduce blood flow in the arteries, increase blood pressure in the lungs and reduce performance. 

Above this, physical exertion generates a much higher uptake of the surrounding air, up to 200 litres per minute during extreme exertion (at rest this is 5l/min). Moreover, when exercising, a natural barrier is bypassed by the fact that when increasing the intensity of exertion, the air is no longer inhaled through the nose but directly through the mouth.

Domo® Sports Grass enriched with Pureti can provide much cleaner air above the sports field, with an immediate beneficial effect on both their health and their performance.

 

Domo Sports Grass enriched with Pureti – No bacteria, no virusesNo bacteria, no viruses

Washing hands with soap and water, as well as alcohol gels have proven to be extremely effective against bacteria and viruses. They act on the weakest part of the bacterium or the virus, namely the lipid cell membrane. This causes it to disintegrate and become harmless.
Pureti works in a similar way, the oxidative breakdown of lipids (known as lipid peroxidation) is very destructive as it takes place as a self-continuing chain reaction. In other words, the microbes and viruses decompose. So if injuries occur, no bacteria or viruses are passed on.

 

 

Domo Sports Grass enriched with Pureti – Prevents moss, mould and algae – Cheaper maintenancePrevents moss, mould & algae
Cheaper maintenance

Due to photocatalytic oxidiation, Domo® Sports Grass enriched with Pureti reduces the maintenance required on a pitch by preventing mould, moss and algae. This is especially the case in places where it often rains or where the pitch requires water to play on. 
This results in a big reduction of the costs on maintenance and it makes the use of biocides and pesticides a thing of the past.

Domo Sports Grass enriched with Pureti – Eliminates air pollutionEliminates air pollution

1m2 of Domo® Sports Grass enriched with Pureti has the air purifying efficiency of 1 fully grown tree. 

It actively and continuously reduces indirect greenhouse gases (NOx and SOx), VOC’s (Volatile Organic Compounds such as methane, toluene, n-heptane, etc.) and particulates (PM 2.5 and PM 10) that cause smog. Considering an average football field covers an area of 8000m2, a field enriched with Pureti is the equivalent of planting a 20-hectare forest.

 

 

Domo Sports Grass enriched with Pureti – Bacteria and virus proofBacteria & virus proof

Lately, we have become much more aware of the dangers of bacteria and virusses in our lives. Domo® Sports Grass enriched with Pureti is self-disinfecting, which means that every bacterium or virus that comes in contact will be be disintegrated and become harmless.

This is important for players who hurt themselves during a game or for children who often play in much closer contact with the surface.

 

 

Domo Sports Grass enriched with Pureti – No biocides or pesticides neededNo biocides or pesticides needed

The active component in Pureti is TiO2, a naturally occuring mineral that generates a photoatalytic process, which results in the breakdown of organic molecules. 

This means that moss, mould and algae don’t get the change to grow on your Domo® Sports Grass enriched with Pureti, so biocides and pesticides are redundant.

Domo Sports Grass enriched with Pureti – Extended lifespan

Extended lifespan

Domo® Sports Grass enriched with Pureti has an increased UV stability and outperforms all other artificial grass qualities in terms of durability.

Domo Sports Grass enriched with Pureti – Odour-free

Odour-free

It does not mask odours, it breaks them down. Any pet, smoke, food or human malodours are oxidized at molecular level.

Domo Sports Grass enriched with Pureti – Fully recyclable

Fully recyclable

Just like any other Domo® Sports Grass artificial grass pitch, it can be fully recycled.

Give children and athletes in your community a healthy playground and help build a sustainable future.

What is Pureti?

Pureti is an invisible nano-coating with which we can enrich our Domo® Sports Grass.  

It actively and continuously reduces indirect greenhouse gases (NOx and SOx), VOC’s (Volatile Organic Compounds such as methane, toluene, etc.), particulates (PM 2.5 and PM 10) that cause smog and other organic matter including bacteria and viruses. 

The active ingredient is the naturally ocurring mineral titanium dioxide (TiO2) which is bound to water molecules to prevent any possibility of free particles. This works together with UV-A light or direct sunlight, humidity and air flow in a photocatalytic process. The TiO2 only acts as a catalyst and does not take part in the process itself, so it is neither a biocide nor a pesticide.

The large contact surface of artificial grass ensures excellent results.

Domo Sports Grass enriched with Pureti – Winner EU Horizon 2020 Award

Pureti is the only photocatalytic product tested with success in the consortium of ISCAPE https://www.iscapeproject.eu/about/consortium, the ambitious European Horizon 2020 project that aims to reduce the ecological footprint of European cities and improve air quality. By integrating Pureti into the production process of artificial grass, Domo® Sports Grass is able to reduce NOX by 70%. 

How does Pureti work?

Traffic, industry and agriculture generate NOX and VOC Traffic, industry and agriculture generate pollutants in the air such as nitrogen oxides (NOX) and Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) which form an important part of particulate matter that, according to research by the WHO (World Health Organization), is responsible for 7 million deaths worldwide every year. In addition, nitrogen compounds also threaten the biodiversity of nature reserves.

Activated by sunlight, Pureti starts a chemical process that uses oxygen (O2) and humidity (H2O) in the ambient air to generate 2 powerful cleaning agents:

  • Hydroxylradicals (OH-)
  • Superoxide-anions (O2-)
PURETi converts water molecules in the ambient air into hydroxyl radicals (OH and O2)
O2 radicals convert NOX into mineral nitrates Superoxide-anions (O2-) oxidizes NOX into harmless mineral nitrates that are consumed and recycled by plants.
Hydroxylradicals (OH-) turn VOCs into water steam (H2O) and a small residual amount of CO2. OH-radicals convert VOC into water steam (H2O) and a small / residual amount of and CO2
The Air purifying efficiency of PURETi on 1 m2 of artificial grass can be related to 1 fully grown tree    

The air-purifying efficiency of 1 m2 Domo® Sports Grass enriched with Pureti, is comparable with the air purifying effect of 1 mature tree.

An artificial turf football pitch enriched with Pureti neutralizes 188 kg NOx per year, which corresponds to the NOx emission of 200 Euro 5 cars that run 20 km a day for a year.

PURETi is now available on following products:

Research

Research shows that an artificial grass football pitch powered by PURETi neutralizes 188 kg NOX per year, and it also demonstrates that the air-purifying effect increases with surface area. This corresponds to the NOX emission of 200 Euro 5 cars that run 20 km a day for a year.

The air purifying effect of 1m² artificial grass powered by PURETi is comparable with 1 mature tree towards NOX and VOC degradation. Consequently, a football field of 8,000 m2 powered by PURETi can be considered the equivalent of 8,000 mature trees, which corresponds to a forest of approximately 20 hectares.

PURETi reduces the NOx by 70%. 

PURETi reduces the NOX by 70%.

Anti-bacterial

PURETi prevents growth of mould, moss and algae.

PURETi - anti-bacterial - Domo Sports Grass
On the pictures displayed, fungal pieces were placed on 2 samples of artificial grass, one of which powered by PURETi. PURETi almost completely degraded the mold after 6 weeks.

 

PURETi in other industries

Besides artificial grass, lots of other industries have been using PURETi because of the wide range of environmental, economic, and health benefits.
