Launched in 2007, the Australian Remediation Industry Cluster
(ARIC) is a network of Australian expertise in environmental
remediation. Through scientific, technical and advisory education,
training and networking, it fosters the development of new skills
and technology to combat contamination.
The ARIC members forum, formerly hosted on the Remediation
Australasia website, has been relocated to the professional
networking website LinkedIn.
The high number of ARIC members already using LinkedIn, and the
significant traffic experienced by the website, have resulted in a
great response to the new forum.
Members are welcome to use the ARIC forum to network, raise
topics of concern or interest, and work together remotely on issues
