Utilization of waste material deriving from shellfish production for environmental restoration works

Please note that the job is no longer active!

Starting from studies on biogeodinamic characteristics of Bivalvia shells, we want to assess the ability of this material to act as a filler, in total or partial replacement of the material currently used, for manufactured devices such as gabions and submerged barriers to be used for banks protection and consolidation in the Venice lagoon, as well as products to be used to protect beaches from erosion.

The activity will cover all aspects related to shell collection, packaging in suitable systems (gabions), placing in test sites and assessing environmental impact (biocenosis of microbial and fisheries populations), in test sites and in laboratory samples.

VdV S.r.l. and Nuova CoEdMar S.r.l. companies cooperation will be crucial in this context, since they are involved in land management and work closely with Public Administrations.

Please note that the full description may be available in the national language since some job boards have their own publication policy. Thank you for your understanding!
