Opportunities are being explored to build a national test bed for independent testing of stormwater facilities. In parallel, a proposal for a national standard for carrying out the tests is being prepared. Evaluation of facilities will creat security as uncertainties can be checked and dismissed.
When the standard and test bed are in place, comparison of facilities are possible and requirements can be placed on the facilities' performance. This will contribute to a more sustainable society and reduced emissions of pollutions. The test bed will also help suppliers evaluate, test and optimize their products.
This project is a continuation of the projects " Classification of manufactured treatment devices for stormwater management" and " Pre-study of test bed for stormwater facilities", for more information see link to project pages below.
Specific goals of this project are:
The goal is that this project will create sufficient clarity and knowledge to take the test bed in the next step, evaluate it and evaluate the standard and classification with the help of the test bed. Furthermore, the ambition is to work with SIS to develop a proposal for a new national standard (SNS) or work for an international standard.
