This half day seminar presents a selection of 4 dredging projects from around the UK bringing news of the latest practical applications of re-use of dredged material as well as innovative developments and use of a new dredging technique. 

The presentations provide a practical insight to the projects. Challenges faced and lessons learned will be explored as well as looking to the future in terms of developing/progressing/continuing these applications on other projects.
