Abstract [en]

The Baltic Sea is suffering from extended surplus of phosphorus, nitrogen and other pollutants. It causes diminishing biodiversity and increased eutrophication (mainly due to nitrogen and phosphorous in various substances). The common effort in the region is environmental standpoint in sustainable circular economy. Oil pollutants, heavy metals, organic substances are being released to the Baltic Sea and consequences for maritime environment are serious. However, Baltic Sea Region is one of the most innovative regions in the world considering environmental technology development. The interregional potential is about to solve the above mentioned challenges there were developed the project “Reviving Baltic Resilience (RBR)”. By using prior experiences in other EU projects as well as continuously working and acquiring new data and knowledge, our aim is to test at proactive methods/technologies for preventing pollution reaching the maritime environment and entering biological chains. The paper focuses on three novel case studies: 1) pollution prevention through phytoremediation at landfill close to the sea; 2) studies on sludge deposits with focus on recovery potential; 3) prevention of release of pollutants from sediments in bays and lagoons. This project was supported by Interreg South Baltic program “Reviving Baltic Resilience” (RBR) and Swedish Institute “PECEC”. © SGEM 2018.
