Project objectives:
The NICOLE steering group decided to fund the Monitored Natural Attenuation project (MNA) with 15,000 EUROS to produce a consolidated report summarising 
individual company studies on MNA.
Project Summary:
In this project 10 industrial parties co-operate to investi-gate and research the possibil-ity of MNA at their specific sites. In total approximately 2 million 
€ will be invested dur-ing the 3 years of the project.
Achieved Objectives:
The consortium partners have agreed to investigate their sites to compare strategies for assessing the feasibility of MNA. The MNA group ex-pects that investigating 
MNA at several demonstration sites, and reporting it in a uniform structured way, will contrib-ute to the acceptance of MNA in Europe as a remedial strategy.
Product Descriptions:
This project is based on a review of avaialble MNA protocols, which was published in 1999.  NICOLE has now made this report available for download.
