Abstract [en]

Sea transport is increasing due to its environmental and economic benefits. The related expansion of ports and the development towards longer, wider and more deep-draught ships cause a huge need for dredging of sediments in fairways and ports. A large volume of these sediments are contaminated with heavy metals and organic contaminants. Millions of m3 of these sediments have to be dredged and handled in the coming years according to studies performed by the SMOCS/PortInfra network. The SMOCS project (Sustainable Management of Contaminated Sediments) within the Baltic Sea Region Programme 2007- 2013 has developed a guideline on management of contaminated sediments based on a sustainability approach. Among all the studies as input for the guidance, a field test on the application of the stabilisation / solidification method for treatment of dredged contaminated sediments was implemented in the Port of Gävle, Sweden. The treated sediments were beneficially used as fill material in the new port area replacing ending natural resources. The outcome of the monitored field test shows that beneficial use of stabilized / solidified contaminated sediments can be applied in this type of geotechnical application in port constructions.
