The Cooperative Research Centre for Contamination Assessment and Remediation of the Environment (CRC CARE) was established under the Federal Government’s CRC Program in 2005 to bring together Australia’s foremost expertise in science, industry and government in a partnership for the research, development, commercialisation and extension of advanced technologies and methods for:
CRC CARE brings together six Australian universities, state and Commonwealth agencies (including the Department of Defence), regulatory authorities, and a range of partners from the mining, petroleum and agricultural industries. Participants also include venture capitalists, and environmental consultants and suppliers. With and through CRC CARE, these groups collaborate on vital contamination issues and sites in the Australasian region.
CRC CARE works on real industry issues and can deliver solutions and outcomes based on the best research and evidence available. Collaboration with leading environmental research groups around the world gives the Centre direct access to the latest international scientific developments.
The Australian Remediation Industry Cluster (ARIC), an initiative of CRC CARE, provides a forum for private and public organisations to consider and address major issues that impede efficient and effective remediation of contamination. ARIC assists with and promotes communication across the industry, and provides strategic direction for the industry’s sustainable growth. The cluster also facilitates the transfer of technology and information from CRC CARE to industry and end-users.
The Australasian Land & Groundwater Association Inc. (ALGA) has a broad base of members including land owners/developers, industry, consultants, contractors, regulators, government, legal, laboratory staff, financiers, academics and more.
