  • 2022-11-29

The World Cup every four years has begun!

The 2022 World Cup in Qatar, which kicked off on Nov. 20, "cost more than $220 billion," making it "the most expensive World Cup in history." Here's a look at how much recycled plastic was used:

 1: Polymer commemorative banknotes at the Lussel Stadium

The Lussel Stadium, the biggest stadium in Qatar and the "golden bowl" for the opening ceremony, was built by China Railway Construction and Qatari company HBK at a cost of $800 million over six years. It is not only the world's largest single structure stadium, but also by far the most difficult World Cup stadium. The Lussel Stadium was also featured on a special edition commemorative 2022 Qatar World Cup banknote. The Bank of Qatar announced that the banknote, with a face value of 22 riyals, is Polymer plastic, the 66th Polymer plastic banknote to be issued worldwide.




2: Container court that can be completely disassembled

 In addition to the main stadium, the 974 stadium, one of Qatar's other venues, uses a total of 974 container modules, all produced by China International Marine Containers (Group) Co., LTD. Removable, removable and reusable, the 974 is the first "green pitch" in World Cup history that can be completely disassembled.


In addition, the Free Zone Fan Village in the Qatari capital has become a temporary home for fans. The interior is similar to a serviced apartment, with its own toilet and room for two people.


3: "The fastest soccer in World Cup history.

 The Journey, the official ball of the Qatar World Cup, was released by FIFA and Adidas. The surface of the Journey ball is a textured polyurethane spherical material called SPEEDSHELL. The sphere is made up of 20 SPEEDSHELL modules, with a triangular shape and bending design to reduce the wind resistance coefficient of the ball in the air. In terms of the fabrication process, the modules on the Journey surface are bonded together by thermal bonding splicing technology. Designed with sustainability in mind, it is the first World Cup ball to be used entirely with water-based paint and water-based glue. In addition, the Journey is more "Q-bullet". The elastic material between the spherical skin and the interior has been upgraded to increase elasticity, which allows the ball to move faster with the same amount of force.


4: Recycled polyester jersey


Adidas released the home and away jerseys for Germany, Argentina, Spain, Mexico and Japan on Monday, featuring players from each national team during the 2022 World Cup. The jerseys are made of recycled polyester. The jersey is comfortable and breathable with 50% Parley Ocean Plastic. They are taken from remote islands, beaches, coastal areas and coastlines to reduce Marine pollution.



5:10% rPET plastic bottle

Coca-Cola recently announced the launch of 100%rPET plastic bottles of Coca-Cola in the Qatar World Cup pilot. Working with Qatar's Supreme Committee for Delivery & Legacy (SC) on plastic recycling, Coca-Cola's trial of 100%rPET marks the first time such packaging has been shown at the FIFA World Cup. In the World Cup venues, Coca-Cola also placed special recycling buckets, through the publicity and education of volunteers and fans responsible release, these recycled plastic bottles will be converted into rPET in the local, so as to create brand new beverage bottles.
