STABLE Controlled treatment of TBT-contaminated dredged sediments for their beneficial use in infrastructure projects

Country: Finland
Start Date:   1/4/2006         Duration: 36 months         Project Type: Demonstration
Contract Number: LIFE06/ENV/FIN/000195
Organisation Type:  Consultancy, contractor or other service provider
Project objectives:
The project aims to demonstrate technically, economically and environmentally viable treatment methods for dredged materials. It is intended that once 
treated the material should be of sufficient quality to be used in infrastructure projects such as harbour extensions.
Project Summary:
It is estimated that 200 million cubic metres of sediment are dredged from river channels in the EU each year. Much of this material is contaminated, in particular 
by the now banned antifoulant tributyltin (TBT). The development of a viable treatment process for these sediments would alleviate a significant waste disposal
problem and provide an alternative to raw materials within the site of the dredging process.
