Articles in this issue

The CO2-related aspects of a dredging project are quite significant. The Sand Motor, shown here, was built on the Dutch coast and required extensive sand excavation which uses an enormous amount of energy. It is one of four projects being studied to develop a design tool aimed at calculating the CO2 footprint over the lifecycle of a project and do it from the start, in the design phase (see page 16).
