The SedNet international conference entitled “Sediment Challenges and Opportunities due to Climate Change and Sustainable Development” this year took place online, from 28 June to 2 July (the program is available here).
The conference was attended by both the team of researchers from the CNR-IRET of Pisa and the team of researchers from the CREA-OF of Pescia.
During the event the groups gave some speech and presented posters relating to the objectives, actions and results of the LIFE SUBSED project.
Dr. Cristina Macci, from the CNR-IRET team, held the presentation entitled “Recovery and environmental recycling of sediments: CNR-IRET Pisa experience“, summarising all the projects in which the team has participated over the years focused on the treatment and the reuse of dredged sediments.

The CREA-OF team prepared for the event an oral presentation and a poster about to the LIFE SUBSED project.

In the video below, also Dr. Stefania Nin of the CREA-OF team illustrates the contents of the poster entitled “Quality assessment in wild strawberry fruit and basil leaf from plants cultivated on dredged remediated sediment (SUBSED LIFE17 ENV/IT/000347)” (available herein pdf format).
On 2 August 2021, Cristina Macci, Grazia Masciandaro, CNR researchers and involved in the SUBSED project, met Luca Sittoni, senior advisor in the Ecosystem and Sediment Dynamics department of Deltares (Netherlands) and Program Manager and member of the EcoShape Building with Nature Management Team.
Cristina Macci and Luca Sittoni met in the “12th International SedNet Conference (online)” when, during the “Circular Economy” session, Cristina gave a presentation entitled “Recovery and environmental recycling of sediments: CNR IRET Pisa experience”, and Luca Sittoni gave the Keynote presentation “Beneficial Sediment Use and NatureBased Solutions: opportunities for sustainable and circular developments”.
During the meeting, the problem of sediments dredging and management was addressed, focusing on the importance of their remediation using natural technologies (NBS, Natuaral Based solution) and of their reuse.
In the Netherlands the sediments that comply with the limits set by national legislation, can be reused in the environment and also in agriculture, while in Italy it is not still possible.
This meeting gave rise to the interest in collaborating on future projects, in participating in the drafting of manuals containing case studies on sediment remediation and recovery (PIANC report on the Beneficial Use of Sediments) and the possibility of organizing a workshop to present their own experiences.
The Field-Futuro in Campo project (funded within the Rural Development Programme 2014-2020) aims to implement innovation transfer interventions in order to enhance the knowledge system and the transfer of innovation through dissemination actions.
The project aims to support the interventions aimed at carrying out activities for the dissemination of information relevant for the agricultural, food and forestry activities.
Dr. Cristina Macci, researcher of the research group of CNR-IRET of Pisa, was invited to present her experience with projects on sediment remediation and reuse and on the validation of circular economy models.
Therefore, on April 28th, Dr. Macci held an online lecture entitled “Sediment recycling in LIFE projects” (the presentation is downloadable at this link).
The creation of networks is one of the fundamental activities to fully exploit the synergy between different types of projects and financial support at national and European level.
