Study day “A 360° perspective on sea sand”

Update 9 September 2020: Unfortunately, corona forced the organisation to postpone this study day to the autumn of 2021. We will inform you as soon as possible about the new date.


This year, the Continental Shelf Service of the FPS Economy is again organizing a study day on sand extraction in the Belgian part of the North Sea.

We look forward to welcome you on Friday 20 November 2020 at our study day “A 360° perspective on sea sand” in the Zwin Nature Park in Knokke-Heist.

In the morning, we will discuss the results of the monitoring and some innovations, as well as the new reference level for sand extraction and the impact of the Marine Spatial Plan 2020-2026. In the afternoon, recycling of sea sand and possible alternatives are considered. We conclude with the applications of sea sand in the industry and in the context of coastal safety.
