The materials listed in the standard for tanks of small wastewater treatment plants are varied as the possible treatment processes themselves. The materials allowed range from classic reinforced concrete, via fibre-reinforced plastics through to stainless steel.

All materials, or containers and tanks manufactured from them, have to prove their suitability in terms of their intended use. In addition to tests for structural behaviour and water tightness, there are also the proof of reaction to fire, durability and a leaching test to verify if any dangerous substances are present.

PIA GmbH has partners and co-operative bodies throughout Europe and can provide the appropriate material tests and the required expertise, wherever needed.

Environmental Technology Verification (ETV)

ETV LogoManufacturers of environmental technologies interested in obtaining officially recognized proof of product quality and performance, may take part in the new EU program for the Verification of Environmental Technologies (ETV). Environmental technologies for water treatment and reuse that qualify for the ETV program are such products that are ready to market or finishing pre-commercial development, with performance claims not covered by existing regulations and standards. In accordance with ISO 14034:2016 these products may be verified by an independent accredited institution to assess selected quality and performance parameters. The ISO 14034:2016 standard was introduced to support manufacturers in introduction and marketing of environmental products, by providing them with the opportunity to acquire an official European ETV verification. Ascertaining and proving individual advantages and selected performance claims for environmental products on the basis of independent verification may thus improve investor and customer resonance as well and lead to overall marketing advantages.
The ISO 14034:2016 method describes multiple steps that lead to the issuing of an official verification statement. PIA supports companies to participate in the ETV program, including initial ETV request, composition of a detailed ETV application and the handling of the overall testing process. In its role as an accredited testing laboratory, PIA offers to conduct practical hands-on testing procedures in accordance with an EN ISO/IEC 17025 when required. After completion, the ETV program is concluded with the issuing of the official ETV verification statement.
