Final Report - PRODICON (Land protection by improvement of Dike construction)

Project ID: 32847
Funded under: FP6-SME

Abstract

The aim of the PRODICON technology was to use modified clayey mixtures to form a water-resistant and erosion-resistant sealing for dikes. Flood disasters account for about a third of all natural catastrophes throughout the world (by number and economic losses) and are responsible for more than half of the fatalities. Trend analyses reveal that major flood disasters and the losses generated by them have increased drastically in recent years. For this reason, it is important to take appropriate steps without delay.

The final report summarises the achievements of the project, which it now notes that the PRODICON technology is now ready for commercial launch and further application on different damaged dikes and dams.
