|STC Catalog of Available Recycled Rubber Research|
Background & Summary
In early 2015, in response to increased public interest in the potential health effects of synthetic turf sports fields with recycled rubber infill, the Synthetic Turf Council began compiling a list of available studies and making them more readily accessible to the public.
Since 1990, STC has identified more than 90 technical studies and reports that have delved into various health and human safety questions relating to the use of recycled rubber as an aftermarket product, including its use as infill in synthetic turf sports fields. These studies have involved chemical engineers, toxicologists, epidemiologists, chemists, biologists and other medical professionals. They have estimated whether toxins are present at any level of concern, whether the human body can access them, and if exposure over time increases risk. The majority of the studies were conducted independently by academic institutions and government agencies.
