Long description: The May 2004 NICOLE workshop at Frankfurt focused on the management of contaminated sediments and industrial sludges. EU soil and water legislation is now moving towards a more integrated approach of contaminated land, water and sediments, a 'system approach'. Sediments are therefore growing in importance to industry. Likewise, many industrial companies have to deal with impoundments at their sites, containing contaminated sludges. This workshop dealt with the many challenges to be overcome in managing contaminated sediments and sludges. It focused on recent policy and legislative developments in sediment/sludge management and effective approaches and technologies for mitigation and clean-up. Presentations also addressed liability aspects (what is facing industry?) and technical issues regarding environmental forensics, sediment and sludge characterisation and promising treatment methods. Papers were arranged in several themes: ' examples of the type and scale of problems ' use of forensics ' characterisation ' treatment ' legislation, liability and management. Discussions focused on sustainable solutions for sediment and sludge management for different stakeholder groups.
