The overall objective of the project is to show how to sustainably restore the ecological status and hydro morphology in a eutrophic sea bay without causing damage.
40 000 m3 of sediments will be removed from the Bay of Malmfjärden in Kalmar City by the year 2020. Life SURE will test methods for cost effective utilization of removed sediments. A vision of the project is zero waste.
Harbor zones are contaminated – it affects environmental quality by:
The existing technologies for removal and treatment of sediments are expensive and technically complicated. The dredged material is a waste problem. The Life SURE project will demonstrate a cost-effective and ecologically sustainable process for retrieving and recycling sediments into a resource.
