Abstract
    In the port of Rotterdam some 20 million m3 of sediment is dredged each year. More than 90% of this material is not contaminated and can be disposed of at sea. The amount of contaminated dredged material has decreased due to, amongst others, the focus on the control of the initial sources of contamination by the Municipal Port Management. Further improvement of the quality of dredged material in the port is worked on in the Rhine Research Project II. Key concepts in this project are emission control, harmonisation of water and sediment policy and a shift towards integrated sediment management.
