Readers will note the slightly unusual spelling of the female name, Claire, represented as CL:AIRE, which is the acronym for the organisation, Contaminated Land: Applications in Real Environments.
CL:AIRE is the 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.
Contaminated land has been a hot environmental topic since the 1970s onwards and was originally assessed using simple contaminated land tables developed by the Greater London Council, often referred to as the “Kelly Tables” and to the fore-runner of DEFRA, the Department of the Environment (DoE).
CL:AIRE has done much to promote understanding about contaminated land issues whether through practical solutions for the implementation of the Part IIA regime, the Definition of Waste: Development Industry Code of Practice and many published papers and guidance.
