Abstract : In the case of sediment removal, the problem of how to discharge the dredged material is very important. The most popular methods are to dump it in water or on land. However, since this has environmental impacts, it is now being restricted by administrative limitations. Therefore, current demands are for measures that have no adverse effects on the environment. The idea of finding a productive use for dredged material has grown from such demands. As one of these, the calcination of sediment for artificial aggregates seems feasible. To investigate its feasibility, a calcination test was carried out on dredged sediment from Lake Suwa in Japan. This paper reports those test results.
