Goals and objectives


The LIFE SURE project has as main objective to test and demonstrate an innovative dredging system that is cost-effective and pose low impacts on the surrounding environment in comparison to conventional dredging systems.

The objectives will be met by using an innovative dredging method that does not disturb the aquatic environment and consequently human health.

Sediments will be removed and treated as secondary raw material within the circular economy concept.  The project aims also to disseminate, transfer and replicate the project ideas and results within Sweden and Europe.
