The CityChlor project ran from 2009 till 2013. CityChlor was a transnational cooperation project that aimed to improve the quality and minimize the pollution of soil and groundwater. Our solution? An integrated approach to tackle the threats caused by contamination with chlorinated solvents in urban areas.

Project partners from Belgium, France, Germany and The Netherlands worked together in the necessary complementary team to achieve this goal. All participating institutes have direct responsibility in the definition of policies and guidelines in their respective regions.

CityChlor was co-funded by INTERREG IVB North-West Europe (NWE), a financial instrument of the European Union’s Cohesion Policy. It funds projects which support transnational cooperation. The aim is to find innovative ways to make the most of territorial assets and tackle shared problems of Member States, regions and other authorities.
