Bio-Based Infill Materials

Olea Fill as a Pet Turf Infill

In pet turf, infill granules are mainly used to create a resistant surface while maintaining a high level of hygiene. A grass landscape for pets should absorb urine and neutralize odors, and create an enjoyable space for pets and their owners. In reaction to the growing demand for natural alternatives to synthetic infills, we created Olea Fill – a biodegradable, easy-to-recycle turf infill for pets.

Olea Fill is totally safe: in contrast to rubber turf infill for pets, there is no risk in case of ingestion. Besides, the heat-treated olive stone granules are not susceptible to microbial contamination. Our product consists of 100% upcycled olive stones, i.e. the core of the edible olive. They are absolutely innocuous and suitable for use in antiallergic fake grass for pets.

Olea Fill pet turf infill creates a pleasant and cosy environment: our pet turf infill particles combine unique features that make them a number one choice for happy and healthy pets:

  • Shock absorbing capabilities: pets love to run around and roll on the floor. With Olea Fill turf infill for pets, any artificial grass becomes a resilient yet sturdy surface, which is easy on pets’ joints.
  • Moisture absorbent: moderate amounts of pet urine are absorbed while the infill stays in place without expanding or floating.
