Interreg Adrion Programme: Sustainable and innovative reuse of dredged sediments from ports
Summary:
Slovenian research institute intends to submit a transdisciplinary project proposal to 1st call of INTERREG ADRION programme to find a permanent and efficient solution for the sediment that is being dredged in ports in order to construct and maintain navigation paths. The institute is looking for research organisations specialized in agricultural experiments, SMEs with experience in commercialization (market research) and creative studio specialized in public relations for communication purpose.
Description:
Slovenian research institute intends to submit a transdisciplinary project proposal to the 1st call of INTERREG ADRION programme to find a permanent and efficient solution for the sediment that is being dredged in ports in order to construct and maintain navigation paths.

State of the art and challenge addressed:
Dredging is a procedure where sediments are excavated from shallow waters in order to construct and maintain a safe navigation for vessels. Most major ports in the world require dredging at some time to enlarge access channels and turning basins, and to provide appropriate water depths along waterside facilities. Furthermore, these channels often require frequent and regular maintenance dredging. Taking into consideration the fact that about a half of the world´s population lives within 200 km of the coastline with a need of transporting people, equipment and materials it is clear that there is a ever-growing demand of maintaining and enlarging the coastal areas (including harbours, beaches and water pathways). Dredging, albeit being a necessary activity, could potentially have a range of environmental effects. Therefore, as a society, we are urged to explore this issue on two levels:
1. assess the potential effects of dredging spatially and in time
2. taking into consideration the necessity of dredging exploring the alternative, sustainable reuse of the dredged materials.

The latter has been a topic of active research in the past as traditionally the dredged material is filled into special lagoons. However, there are some sustainable possibilities of reusing this material. The dredged material can be reallocated and re-used for road construction, for beach renourishment, for creating construction materials and in agriculture.

Project Objective:
Within this project we will exploit the possibilities of using the dredged sediment for creating soil to be used in agricultural purposes.

Work packages:
1. analysis of dredged sediment in order to define its structure, environmental safety and possibilities of reuse
2. agricultural experiments in order to determine its best mode of employ
3. plan for commercialization
4. communication and dissemination (very important WP)

Outcomes:
The solutions of usage of this material in construction materials have already been explored worldwide and on a European level. The focus of this project is to explore and bring solutions, for the possible use of this material in agriculture, which is also promising and deserves special attention.

Partners requested:
The institute is looking for research organisations specialized in agricultural experiments, SMEs with experience in commercialization (market research) and creative studio specialized in public relations for communication purposes. The partners should come from Croatia, Italy or Greece.

The deadline for project submission is 25th March 2016. Interested partners should respond to this posting by February 25th, 2016. The planned duration of the project is 24 months.
Advantages and Innovations:
The innovation lies in the sustainability of the whole project. If successful, the solution could be used permanently, thus opening new jobs and resolving the possible environmental adverse effects of the dredged sediments that can be disposed on the surface.
