Circular products from dredged sediments
"We show that even dredged sediment is of enormous value in the circular economy."
Water passing tile of dredged sediments
Our water passing tile is made from dredged sediments. It is a circular and climate-adaptive product: the tiles are made from river sediment waste and provides a solution for flooding in cities. As cities are largely paved areas, they are ill-equipped to deal with the increased rainfall caused by climate change. Conventional pavement does not allow rainwater to seep into the ground, so heavy rains cause sewer systems to overflow and cities to flood. Waterweg tiles are a local, sustainable solution for future-proof cities. We should all walk on the dredge from our local rivers!
We do not have a passion for dredged sediments, we have a passion for impact. Dredge is our tool to make an impact. The current pavement production process uses environmentally damaging and increasingly scarce materials. With a tile from the dredge, we no longer have to use and transport scarce resources. Our production process requires very little energy, and we use a waste stream that no one wants to have.
