Provides information on the processes, materials and waste associated with individual industries with regard to land contamination.
DOE Industry Profiles provide developers, local authorities and anyone else interested in land contamination, with information on the processes, materials and wastes associated with individuals industries.

The 47 original publications in the series have been scanned and created into PDF documents by Defra and are now available as free PDF downloads. As a result the quality of the documents are poorer than normally provided by both Defra and ourselves.
However their usefulness to the risk management process is such that the decision was made to provide access to them in this format.
Original printed versions of the documents are still available for purchase from the Defra website from their land quality pages.
