CL:AIRE projects are either technology demonstration projects (TDPs) or research projects (RPs) and they cover site investigation techniques, monitoring or remediation solutions. CL:AIRE has developed a process in which projects are submitted, evaluated by a team of independent experts (CL:AIRE’s Technology and Research Group), and – if approved – monitored and reported so that the industry as a whole can benefit from the results. The CL:AIRE Technology and Research Group will evaluate each project submission against the following criteria:

•    scientific validity of the application
•    robust nature of the methodology
•    contribution to the UK contaminated land marketplace
•    suitable assessment of site criteria
•    competencies in forms of project management.

The process does allow for constructive feedback and resubmission, but not all applicants get through.

If you would like to undertake a CL:AIRE Project or find out about the benefits of getting involved with CL:AIRE then please contact one of CL:AIRE’s project team – Nicola Harries, Rob SweeneyNick Willenbrock. Applicants can contact CL:AIRE on 020 7299 4250.

The Technology and Research Group Annual Report 2015 provides more background on the evaluation process and a list of previous CL:AIRE projects.
