Contamination dredged material; Treatment techniques; Disposal sites
In general, there is a lack of disposal sites and/or alternative treatment techniques for beneficial reuse of contaminated dredged material in the Flemish region of Belgium. On the other hand there are several sites in this region that, owing to former industrial activities, are contaminated and no longer have a commercial or industrial use. Some even have a negative value as a result of the present contamination and the needed sanitation before any futher use. On top of this there is an urgent shortage of industrial areas in the Ghent region for the expansion of high technology oriented business and small- to medium-sized organisations.
