The SOLINDUS project aims to develop a mineralogical treatment process applicable to polluted sediments. The aim of the VALSOLINDUS project is to validate the process introduced in SOLINDUS by assessing the health risks for personnel responsible for the treatment and the risks to human health and ecosystems related to the recovery of treated sediment from soils.
FEDER Convergence 2007-2013 programme in partnership with the CTP and the INISMa.
Budget: €8,052,743.93 including €797,635 for the ISSeP, financed 40% by the FEDER and 60% by the Walloon region.
This project began on 1 July 2008.
The SOLINDUS project aims to offer an integrated solution to the problem of managing sediments and similar materials by creating a semi-mobile mineralogical platform with the aim of decontaminating a significant proportion of category B sediments. The effectiveness of the treatment is partly assessed by chemical analysis of the materials, as described in the decree from the Walloon government of 30/11/1995. The recovery of fine fractions (the most polluted) in cement plants, brickyards or in expanded clay beads is also studied.
