The 5th European Marine Sand and Gravel Group (EMSAGG) Conference, hosted by Deltares, took place this month, from 4-5 June, in Delft, the Netherlands.
This EMSAGG conference, under the name ‘Marine sand and gravel – finding common ground’, covered a range of topics highly relevant to the dredging industry, its regulators, customers and other stakeholders covering both technical and non-technical issues.
The conference program examined three broad topic areas with summary presentations and panel discussions in each:
- Extraction of marine sand and gravel – monitoring and impacts;
- New technologies and developments;
- Marine spatial planning.
The conference also included a presentation and tour on the Sand Engine/Sand Motor, south of the Hague, a pioneering approach to coastal management.
