Thursday 14th October 2021

at 14:00 – 16:00hrs

Hosted digitally through WorkCast

Marine Aggregates In the UK

Chaired by

Nick Everington

The Crown Estate

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 webinar 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.
