The criteria used in selecting products and materials are
increasingly related to environmental impacts during the
life cycle. Life cycle thinking is well suited for
remediation of contaminated sediments. It can be used in
selecting most environmentally friendly options for
dredging, treatment and disposal of sediments. In this
work, assessment and comparison procedure (SEDU) was
created to identify environmental impacts during a
sediment remediation project.
Sediment contamination is recognized as a widespread and
serious problem and the management of contaminated
sediments presents significant challenges. However, with
optimal selection of dredging and treatment technologies,
costs and environmental effects can be minimised.
