Abstract

The purpose of this study is to investigate possibilities of using harbour sediments from the Greenlandic harbours as substitutes in the Greenlandic construction industry, mainly for concrete production and road construction. Materials for use in the Greenlandic construction industry are shipped to Greenland from all over the world and reuse and use of resources already in Greenland would therefore make a huge contribution to the local community.
