The aim of this Specialized Lecture is to present the recent advances and issues, as well as original research, on Modified Clays for Barriers. Topics of interest include: (1) long-term hydraulic performance of modified clays for GCLs, (2) chemico-osmotic and diffusion efficiency of modified clays, (3) modeling coupled chemical-hydraulicmechanical behavior of modified clays, (4) wet and dry ageing of modified clays, (5) use of novel bentonites for vertical barrier applications, and (6) organoclays for various barrier applications. In addition, the possible reuse of dredged sediments after polymer treatment will also be discussed. Environmental management and handling of dredged sediments are important worldwide because enormous amounts of dredged material emerge from maintenance, construction and remedial works within water systems. Usually these materials after temporary upland disposal in lagoons are disposed in landfills. The aim of this study is to analyse the possible reuse of these sediments as a low-cost alternative material for landfill covers. The mechanisms through which polymers can improve the efficiency of dredged sediments for waste containment low permeable barriers are discussed.
