CEDA Webinar on Marine Aggregates – 14.00 Hrs (BST) 14th October 2021

Published 06 October 2021

Marine Aggregates in the UK

Free webinar – Thursday 14th October 2021, 2pm-4pm

The UK has world class resources of marine aggregates and it has a mature and well regulated industry to manage their extraction. Forming a critical part of the supply chain for building materials in the UK, the industry typically extracts around 20 million tonnes per year. Marine sands and gravel meet around 25% of the demand for sand and gravel in England and Wales and are instrumental in supporting climate resilience through the replenishment of our beaches. 

This CEDA webinar is free to attend. It examines recent developments in the management of marine aggregate extraction, in terms of the assessment of marine mineral resources, the relationship between dredging and our coastline, the way that the industry supports our understanding of marine heritage, and recent innovation in the design of new dredging vessels.

CEDA exists to champion the professional success of individuals and organisations in the dredging industry and associated fields. It is an established authority and the leading independent forum for the dredging community in Europe, Africa and the Middle East. CEDA fosters and promotes the understanding and advancement of dredging in our wider society and is a recognised reference point for high quality specialist knowledge on dredging and related matters. It has a diverse mix of corporate members drawn from industry (e.g. dredging contractors and ports), consultancies, academia, government agencies and others.

CEDA is a part of the World Organisation of Dredging Associations (WODA), which also consists of the Western Dredging Association (WEDA) and the Eastern Dredging Association (EEDA), which serve the Americas, Asia, Australasia and the Pacific region.
