If you would like to publish a CL:AIRE Bulletin, we are offering a 50% discount in the bulletin fee to CL:AIRE members. CL:AIRE publishes a number of different types of bulletin (Case Study, Technical, Research, Site, Guidance etc) which can be used to inform the industry about your project, technology or research. All bulletins are reviewed by CL:AIRE's Technology and Research Group to make sure they are of the highest quality.
For a 4-page CL:AIRE bulletin we typically receive a word count of 3000-4000 words, with 6 or 8 figures, diagrams, photos or tables etc. We prefer you to provide the document in Word and any illustrative material as separate electronic files (e.g. jpg), rather than embedding them in Word. Also, please remember to provide some appropriate contact details at the end.
As a guide to content and style of writing, our audience is very varied (local authority, site owner, consultant, contractor, student, general public etc), and so we like to ease the reader into the subject matter by providing a general introduction and setting the scene. This does not have to be in great detail and you might find previous bulletins a useful guide (see the Resources/Publications Library area of the CL:AIRE website www.claire.co.uk).
Once we have received your text (in Word), we will send it to the CL:AIRE independent review panel, the Technology and Research Group to review. Once you have addressed any comments, we will put it into a desktop publishing package, and send it back to you for review as a pdf. Once published, your bulletin can be considered a peer reviewed document.
We charge £3000 for a pdf bulletin, which will be promoted widely via our website. The 50% discount only applies to the 4 page bulletins described above.
Five sponsors have already snapped up the chance to sponsor this event, which means there is only 1 space remaining.

CL:AIRE is pleased to announce the publication of Technology Demonstration Project Bulletin TDP25 and an In Situ Chemical Oxidation (ISCO) decision support tool, which are now available to download.
TDP25 is titled, "Decision support tool for innovative in situ multi-contaminant groundwater remediation" and describes the development of a decision support framework to assist practitioners and other stakeholders on the decision of whether to use ISCO for the remediation of contaminated groundwater and, if deemed appropriate, guidance on the selection of chemical oxidants and their application in the subsurface.

"The Importance of Toxicology in Managing Contaminated Land”
The CL:AIRE Networking Series is a programme of events aimed at bringing the CL:AIRE Membership companies together. These events give companies the opportunity to create new connections, discuss common industry problems/solutions and to highlight the latest developments in the industry.
Following the success of last year’s events we are delighted to announce the first of these events for 2014:
Monday 24th March 2014 at the Royal Society of Chemistry and the Geological Society, Burlington House, Piccadilly, London. The session will run from 17:30 to 20:00.
Attendance is free to all CL:AIRE Members, Qualified Persons, Geological Society Fellows and Royal Society of Chemistry members. Non-members of these organisations will be charged £20 for entry.
From the cases reviewed to date, the contaminated land expert panel has prepared a short document on their initial observations to help local authorities in their determinations of sites. The information is presented under the four key areas in line with what is required to be included within a risk summary as per section 3.35 of the EPA 1990: Part 2A Contaminated Land Statutory Guidance April 2012. The headings include: understanding the risks, understanding the uncertainties, putting the risks in context and possible remediation that could occur on the site.
The Department of Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (Defra), the Welsh Government, the Environment Agency and Natural Resources Wales ask for your participation in an important survey on the impact of the revised Part 2A Statutory guidance and supporting research projects, publications and other initiatives.
The aim of the survey is two-fold:
1. Assessing the level of understanding across the sector of the key principles that were introduced under the revised Statutory Guidance, implemented by Defra and the Welsh Government in April 2012.
2. Gathering Local Authority and other stakeholder views on the usefulness of the revised Part 2A Statutory Guidance for the determination of contaminated land, as well as its impacts on the land contamination sector in England and Wales.
The survey is open for a five-week period (from Monday 27 January until Friday 28 February 2014, midnight) and is being administered by Cranfield University on behalf of the English and Welsh government departments.

CL:AIRE is delighted to announce that Southern Testing has joined as new Technical Members.
CL:AIRE would like to remind its members that the State of the Market Report for 2013 is available to download here>>> Please note that this version contains the profiles of two companies (URS and Waterman) that were omitted from the previous version in error. This is for Members ONLY, and we request that it is not forwarded outside of your organisations to Non- Members.
The State of the Market Report is based on a detailed survey of CL:AIRE Technical Member organisations which have contributed company-specific, and often commercially sensitive information, for the purposes of CL:AIRE collating and reporting back the findings to provide a picture of the land contamination and remediation sector in the UK.
The 2013 State of the Market Report will be promoted to CL:AIRE’s Corporate Members and will be disseminated to UK Governmental Departments and to international equivalent organisations to show a UK capability benchmark. CL:AIRE’s State of the Market Reports will be repeated and available annually as part of CL:AIRE Membership>>>
