CL:AIRE is committed to providing a valuable service for all those involved in sustainable land reuse. We develop training resources, disseminate information and act as a credible resource for all stakeholders, ensuring we remain at the cutting-edge of best practice and innovation.

There are three key areas of activity for CL:AIRE:



Contaminated Land: Applications in Real Environments (CL:AIRE) is a respected independent not-for-profit organisation established in 1999 to stimulate the regeneration of contaminated land in the UK by raising awareness of, and confidence in, practical and sustainable remediation technologies.

Since 1999, CL:AIRE has grown into an organisation that does more than just demonstrate remediation technologies “in real environments”. The early years were very much focussed on land contamination and the processes and techniques in site characterisation, remediation and monitoring/verification.  As the remediation industry has matured, CL:AIRE’s activities have broadened into many areas of sustainable land reuse.  CL:AIRE supports a number of industry initiatives, for example, sustainable remediation and asbestos in soil, and has helped to develop more efficient regulation initiatives, such as the Definition of Waste Code of Practice for development projects and the emerging National Quality Mark Scheme.  CL:AIRE’s position in the industry makes it ideally placed to identify and help manage the challenges ahead.

CL:AIRE works with a dedicated team of professionals, the main technical personnel within CL:AIRE are:

CL:AIRE consists of a small team of professionals who carry out its daily activities, supported by a Board of Trustees and an advisory group – the Technology and Research Group (TRG). The TRG takes a key role in CL:AIRE’s work, supporting CL:AIRE on issues associated with technology development, and providing guidance on issues relating to sustainable land reuse.

CL:AIRE is a registered charity (No. 1075611) and an environmental body registered with ENTRUST (Entrust No. 119820). We are also an incorporated company, limited by guarantee and registered in England and Wales (reg no. 3740059).
