Conversion of contamined sediments into coating materials

Objective

In almost every European harbor the disposal of contaminated dredged material resulting of maintenance of certain water depth is a big problem. Main objective of the proposed project is to work out an optimized technology for recycling highly contaminated, fine-grained sediments into thin surface coatings. The proposed technology implements the de-watering, treatment, melting and coating of the dredged materials. Coatings made of recycled sediments can be a substitute for ceramic coatings, e.g. wear resistant coatings or thermal barrier coatings. Research tasks include sediment characterization, the identification of process requirements examination of the de-watering / treatment properties and the melting properties, the development of a coating application technology, product design, material testing, environmental impact assessment, economical assessment, pilot tests and field tests.
