Abstract:

Alternative technologies and alternative strategies for dredging, transport, and disposal of contaminated dredged material are reviewed. Contaminant controltreatment during three basic operations are discussed. These include contaminant controltreatment during dredging, contaminant controltreatment during material transport, and contaminant controltreatment during disposal operations. Many technologies have been developed for controltreatment of contaminated media. These technologies have the potential for application to a contaminated dredged material handling operation. Such technologies are identified in this report. Technologies are separated into proven, demonstrated, demonstrable, and conceptual categories.
