The Cooperative Research Centre for Contamination Assessment and Remediation of the Environment (CRC CARE) performs research, develops technologies and provides policy guidance for assessing, cleaning up and preventing contamination of soil, water and air.

CRC CARE was launched in 2005 as part of the Australian Government’s Cooperative Research Centres (CRC) Program, which supports end-user-led collaborations among industry, researchers and the community. CRCs link researchers with industry to focus on research and development towards use and commercialisation. In 2011, CRC CARE successfully bid for a further nine years of funding.

CRC CARE’s Participants comprise research partners (several leading universities and CSIRO) and industry partners (entities that deal with contaminated sites and environmental contamination). Industry partners span companies whose operations require contamination to be managed or remediated (e.g. mining companies and the Department of Defence), government regulators (including several state environment protection authorities), and environmental consultancies (the companies that are commissioned to clean up contaminated sites).

By bringing together these sometimes disparate stakeholders, CRC CARE ensures that research efforts are focused on solving the problems that industry needs solved, and develops technologies and knowledge that are of economic benefit to industry and at the same time enhance or protect human and ecological health.
