Using Sediment As a Resource
7-8 November 2019. Ahoy, Rotterdam, the Netherlands
The USAR-project (Using Sediment As a Resource) aims to introduce technologies, methods and tools for the use of dredged sediments in novel ways by water managers across the 2seas area and beyond. This is a challenging aim because sediment is generally regarded as a ‘waste’ rather than a ‘resource’.
Key project outputs include test pilots to validate new uses of sediments, an Inventory Catalogue (WikiSed) that collates possible uses of sediment, a Recycling Strategy that supports sediment recycling plans, and the Operational Sediment Management System (OSMS), an ICT tool that shows water managers how to use sediment as a resource!
