The Cleaning Land for Wealth (CL4W) project (approved as CL:AIRE RP25) is seeking suitable sites that have high concentrations of arsenic and Platinum Group Metals (PGMs) in soil where samples can be collected for lab trials. The site should have suitable ground conditions (no obstructions, no stiff clays, range of soils welcome) and contamination levels for arsenic ideally (but not necessarily) will be in the range of 100-5000 mg/kg, and for PGM ideally high but any level will be considered. Sites proposed should be in the UK and available for access from mid-November 2013 until at least 30th October 2014.
If you have a suitable site please email
Cleaning Land for Wealth (CL4W) is an EPSRC funded collaborative project joining 5x leading UK Universities.
