Properties and pozzolanic reactivity of flash calcined dredging sediments
Dredging of ports, harbours and waterways generates vast amounts of sediments that find few applications and need to be disposed of. In the port of Antwerp, Belgium, each year 450,000 t (dry matter) of dredging sediments are mechanically dewatered and stockpiled. This paper investigates flash calcination of the clay-rich dredged sediments as a sustainable solution to develop novel pozzolanic supplementary cementitious materials (SCM) for blended cement.
