Abstract:

A satisfactory, short term biological oxygen demand test suitable for operational control of waste treatment processes was developed. The Total Biological Oxygen Demand T (BOD) test, a mass culture technique which utilizes the change in chemical oxygen demand as resulting from bacterial action, was chosen as the basic system. Because the T (BOD) test was developed for and is conceptually limited to soluble wastewaters, considerable modification of the basic test was necessary. Results show that the modified T (BOD) test can be utilized for the determination of the oxygen demand of nonsoluble wastewaters. Values were not affected by dilution as long as the initial (time equals O) wastewater COD value was greater than 100 mg/l. Of greater utility is the development of COD vs T (BOD) correlations for a specific wastewater, however.
