3rd meeting WG Sediments in Circular Economy: 23-24 October 2019

After the success of the second Working Group meeting on Sediments in Circular Economy, held in Dubrovnik, Croatia, in conjunction with the SedNet 2019 conference, we are happy to invite you to the next Working Group (WG CE3), to be held on October 23-24th, 2019, in and near Bremen, Germany. According to participants’ suggestions during WG CE2, the meeting will be longer and a large part will be dedicated to site visits.
It is most important for all of us to understand and share real world experience, in order to promote beneficial use for dredged sediments, without interfering with the role of sediments in their natural habitat. Our primary objective is to achieve a sustainable reduction of waste flows with benefits for the territories around ports, waterways, dams, etc.

Participation to WG CE is free, on a voluntary basis, and requires only your registration by e-mail to the SedNet Secretariat (Marjan.euser@deltares.nl). It is not possible to attend an event without prior registration.

The provisional agenda is as follows:
