Objective

The overall aim of PROMOTE is to set up an efficiency control and performance verification (ECV) system for soil-groundwater protection and rehabilitation based on a more generic testing and performance verification concept, in a network of testing centres. This is in direct accordance with the ETAP procedure. A strong impact of PROMOTE is to be expected concerning a faster market introduction of novel techniques hence strengthening the competitiveness of technology developers in Europe. This guaranteed by an extensive integration of SME’s and Eastern European partners. PROMOTE will gain the potential to act as a germ cell of a pre-normative verification system, overcoming implementation barriers and bridging the gap between innovative and standardised techniques. Main scientific-technical objectives are:-Assessment of existing verification tools and identification of demands on techniques to support the implementation of the WFD, the GWD and the evolving Soil Protection Strategy-Elaboration of a generic testing and performance verification concept designed to be basically applicable to abroad range of environmental technologies-ECV system development for remediation and monitoring approaches in soil-groundwater systems-ECV system verification on a reference and a field site-ECV system transfer to related environmental technologies-Establishing a ECV platform by including the "CEN Workshop" tool beyond the projectThe ECV system set-up is divided in four phases:
(1) Organisational phase,
(2) Operational phase,
(3)Assessment and verification phase and
(4) ECV establishment and dissemination strategy, comprises a conceptual review and testing of the ECV applicability, the ECV general validity, comparison of ECV with other systems and stakeholder consultation. Phase (4) includes the ECV transfer to improved remediation technologies, the elaboration of standardisation related issues and the establishment of a common ECV
