Stadiums are being versatile as they no longer are being used just for sports but they are also used for concerts, or other events. The Olympic Games, the World cup, the European and FIFA World Cups and other major sports and athletic tournaments are periodically organised at locations around the world. The energy requirement is high due to this so there is an increasing need for total solutions that make ‘green’ stadiums possible.
  Some of green solutions are as follows – *       Use of renewable energy capabilities to operate the events *       Comprehensive solid waste and recycling programs *       Recovery and donation of unused prepared food *       Donation of decorating materials to charitable organizations *   Investment into a reforestation program that offsets the carbon    generated by the event *  Increased use of environment friendly cleaning and maintenance  products *     Increased use of recycled, chlorine-free paper for all publications and  operations *    Installation of solar energy panels to generate electricity for the team scoreboard *  Environmental awareness and funding for environmental protection project  *    Use of 100 percent organic cotton shirts and recycled balls  *    Stadium should be an effective building with LEED certification *  Use of drought-resistant plants that require less water for the landscaping *   The construction material should be of recycled content and should be regionally produced to avoid long transportation *    Setting up of numerous recycling bins throughout the stadium   Some green initiatives have been taken in Dublin, Ireland where Aviva stadium has been built. The stadium redevelopment has been influenced with elements such as  1. Onsite crushing of the old stands for reuse as foundation material and recycling of steel rebar from the old stadium 2.  Use of low CO2 concrete in construction 3.  Rainwater harvesting 4.  Heat recovery (from the diesel generators) 5.  Waterless urinals 6.  Energy and water meters 7.  Acoustic Paneling 8.  Promotion of public transport, promoting local produce and Waste management strategy To know more just click http://www.avivastadium.ie/sustainability.aspx Keep Looking this space for more such interesting information!! royal challengers
