bca sponsors new Centre for Contaminated Land Remediation

bca is one of the major sponsors of a new initiative aimed at studying how best to recycle contaminated land.

The new Centre for Contaminated Land Remediation is part of the School of Earth and Environmental Sciences at the University of Greenwich's Medway Campus, Chatham, Kent. The centre is believed to be the first of its kind in any academic institution and will study how to reuse the estimated 200,000 hectares of contaminated uk industrial land that could potentially be available for development. It will integrate research from diverse disciplines: from remedial technologies and monitoring issues to risk analysis, policy issues and real estate valuation. All have a central focus on the restoration and redevelopment of contaminated 'brownfield' sites.

The centre is sponsored by bca and other trade associations and engineering companies concerned with contaminated land issues. These include: the British Lime Association, the British Urban Regeneration Association, Kvaerner Technology, Ove Arup, WS Atkins and Sir William Halcrow & Partners.

The centre will be a source of free information and guidance and offers a free helpline advice service on 0208 3317718.
