SPEL Products

PROJECT OVERVIEW: SPEL Products provide quality products and systems for the storage, attenuation, monitoring, treatment and utilisation of surface water. They supply pollution control systems to the construction industry.

PROJECT OBJECTIVES: The aim of CREST support was to test some new products to gain performance certification on emerging pollutants. This was based on the CIRIA SuDS Manual Mitigation Index, as well as other pollutants. SPEL wanted to prove compliance to the highest possible level of pollution removal on each device. The overall objective for SPEL was to bring a new product to market that could be used for treating stormwater.

PROJECT SOLUTIONS: Our CREST researchers reviewed the existing literature and CIRIA SuDS manual. They then evaluated the conformity of the new product, specifically in relation to the planning, design, construction and maintenance of such systems, based on the information provided by SPEL. At the end of our research, a report was produced to summarise our findings, and a certificate of confidence was provided to SPEL.
