Abstract [en]

Increasing sea transport volumes require expansion of ports and due to longer, wider and more deep-draught ships considerable dredging of sediments often contaminated with heavy metals and organic contaminants has to be implemented. Handling options have to be identified in each actual case and the choice of option should be based on a sustainability approach, considering economy, environment and social aspects. In the EU-funded project "Sustainable Management of Contaminated Sediments in the Baltic Sea" (SMOCS; www.smocs.eu) within the Baltic Sea Region Programme 2007-20 13, tools for assessment and decision making are developed, i. e. Life Cycle Analysis (LCA), Risk Assessment (RA) and Multi Criteria Decision Analysis (MCDA). To develop the tools a series of case studies have been performed comparing different handling options such as land disposal, sea disposal, confined aquatic disposal and beneficial use in port constructions utilizing the stabilization/solidification technology.
