Learn how to recycle and re-use while developing your port
Two sessions to focus on sustainable removal and re-use of materials from port expansions.
On day one, session 4 on dredging, will highlight the technology and methods for removing sediment, ensuring that contaminated material is safely disposed of and how non-contaminated sediment is used as a sustainable alternative to concrete. This session will also highlight how simulation is being used to manage and minimise the requirement to dredge.
Session 7.1 will focus on maintaining the quality of water in and around your port. The speakers will highlight the importance of keeping waterways clean and free of invasive species, and how ports are using innovative and autonomous technology to clear litter from their waters. The final speaker will highlight how the Port of Baltimore is taking algae from the water to produce energy to power the port, providing a sustainable solution for cleaning and powering the port.
