Land treatment of dredged material (METHA)

Degree of synergistic effects and conflicts according NATURA 2000 aims

Table 3: Effect of the measure concerning the main conservation objectives in the operational area 2
Operational area (zone) Natura 2000 conservation objectives Effect of Measure on conservation objectives Description
2   Positive No effect Negative  
2   Prevention of further increase and/or reduction of tidal range (energy)   -    
2 Conservation and development of primarily floodplain/alluvial forest (*91E0)   -    
2 Conservation and improvement of alluvial meadows of river valleys (6440) and lowland and hay meadows (6510)   -    
2 Conservation of the primarily ‘Elbe Water Dropwort’ (Oenanthe conioides) with species specific dynamic, development of further habitats to improve the habitat network   -    
2 Conservation and development of spawn and growth habitats for asp, ensuring the habitat potential for the twaite shad   -    
2 Conservation and development of the transition functionality between the Middle Elbe and the Estuary downstream for migratory fish species of Annex II BHD   -    

The measure METHA plant has no positive or negative effect on the specific NATURA 2000 development targets for zone 2 where it is located. Nevertheless the measure indirectly contributes to improve the sediment quality, especially in the area of the port of Hamburg (zone 2).
