In order to reduce leaching of heavy metals (Pb, Cu, Zn), marine sediments dredged in the industrial harbour of Taranto (I) were submitted to an innovative treatment based on mechano-chemistry (MC) with addition of a natural zeolite (phillipsite). The experimental results of tests carried out at laboratory scale showed that metal leachability can be prevented almost completely when the sediments undergo the proposed treatment in proper operating conditions.
