Co-financer:

Regione Emilia-RomagnaThe main objective of the project is to preserve the quality of coastal zones through integrated management of sediments from dredging activities in small harbours. The project will focus on the actions to be undertaken to promote environmentally friendly use of such fractions in an integrated system involving beach nourishment applications, reconstruction of morphological profiles as well as industrial applications. Such an approach will result in reducing land use for final disposal and consumption of natural primary resources. The transparency and measurability of procedures will assure reproducibility and communicability of results.

Where:

Emilia Romagna, Lazio, Sardegna (Italy).

Investigation Area:

9 small harbours of the Emilia Romagna region (Cattolica, Porto Verde, Riccione, Rimini, Bellaria, Cesenatico, Cervia, Porto Garibaldi, Goro)
