Short description: The objectives of the research were to: 1. Provide an overview of the understanding of remediation techniques 2. Assess the status of the use of remediation techniques in England and Wales 3. Conduct an environmental and social impact assessment of remediation techniques 4. Conduct a cost assessment of remediation techniques The research included input from technology providers and environmental consultants. 
Long description: The aims of this research were to summarise the current understanding and utilisation of different contaminated land remediation techniques, to identify current and likely future factors influencing their selection and to set out the relative economic, environmental and social costs and benefits (i.e. the sustainability) of each technique. The sustainability impact assessment section of the report develops further the principles of the Sustainable Remediation Forum (SuRF-UK), demonstrating how thorough qualitative sustainability assessments for remediation technology selection can be undertaken and developed. This will benefit Defra which is keen to encourage “smarter” remediation solutions to be used in practice. Remediation techniques have evolved significantly over recent years, and the aim is to help industry to identify all the available options and to avoid resorting to a default remediation solution which may have less well determined economic, environmental or social impacts.
