    In-Place Capping of Contaminated Sediments: A Technology Overview

    Polluted lake or marine sediments have been identified in at least 19 of Sweden's 21 counties. In many cases, the pollution levels are so high that clean-up measures are needed to reduce the risks posed by the pollutants. One clean-up measure (or technology) is to cover, or cap, the contaminated sediments in place with clean materials. This particular sediment clean-up technology is the subject of a new technology overview recently published by the Swedish Geotechnical Institute, SGI.
