Education & Training

CEAMaS, the first step towards a European Centre of Resources on sediments management and reuse

The aim of CEAMaS is to bring about a major improvement regarding the widespread beneficial re-use of dredged marine sediments. Education and training are key in this process.

CEAMaS focuses on education and training supports & tools to capitalise on the CEAMaS results as well as other projects’ findings regarding sediments management and reuse applications.

As a first step for a European Resource Centre on sediment management and reuse applications, training actions and supports have been developed under this INTERREG IVB program and will be continued and updated within the planned EU Resource Centre which will be based on a European development of the French  resource centre.

A program of webinars covering the following specialities is hoped to be developed after the CEAMaS project with this future EU resource centre:

  • Civil engineering / landscaping
  • Mining industry / Mineral processing / Geology
  • Biodiversity
  • Chemistry / Ecotoxicity
  • Logistic
  • Ports authorities and waterways operators
  • Waste management
  • Geography and social science

Within the CEAMaS project, a first set of webinar material has been developed and is available for free download for non-commercial use only. Your feedback for the evolution of this training platform are welcome.


A Powerpoint presentation with a summary of information gathered during the CEAMaS project regarding reuse of dredged marine sediments in Belgium.

Two examples of site descriptions to illustrate the data collection for LCA are available for free download

This webinar material gives two examples with explanations on why geochemistry matters for the dewatering of tailings

This tutorial explains the methodology to set up a GIS to find a suitable location for reuse options by integration of spatial constraints

Through the CEAMaS Interreg IVB North-West Europe project contributions on Technical, Social, Economic and Global environmental impact issues, we have a Transnational 360° vision on marine sediment reuse in civil engineering applications.
