The suitability of electrokinetic remediation for removing heavy metals from dredged marine sediments is under investigation within the SEKRET Life+ project (“Sediment ElectroKinetic Remediation Technology for heavy metal pollution removal”), by means of a demonstrative 150 m3 treatment basin to be built in an area of the port of Livorno (Italy). In the port of Livorno almost 100000 m3/year of sediments are dredged on a regular basis. An environmental seabed assessment performed in 2005 detected the presence of sediments polluted by significant concentrations of Cd, Cr, Cu, Ni, Pb and Zn. In order to design the treatment plant, several calculations and estimations have been carried out based on data from laboratory tests.
