The British Cement Association is one of the major sponsors of the new Centre for Contaminated Land Remediation. Part of the School of Earth and Environmental Sciences at the University of Greenwich, the Centre is believed to be a first for any academic institute and will study how contaminated industrial sites could be re-used for development.
Based at the University's Medway Campus in Kent, the Centre will integrate research from a number of disciplines, with a central focus on the restoration and redevelopment of contaminated brownfield sites.
The centre will be a source of free information and guidance for those wishing to clearn up contaminated sitees using cement-based stabilisation and solidification. For more information call Martin Hopkins, tel: (01344) 725729
