What are the differences between Chemical Oxygen Demand (COD) and Biological Oxygen Demand (BOD)?

by Camlab Limited  (Jun. 19, 2015)

Ask the expert: What are the differences between Chemical Oxygen Demand (COD) and Biological Oxygen Demand (BOD)? Answer: Both COD and BOD test methods aim to give an indication of the amount of pollution in a water sample. COD is the amount of oxygen required to chemically breakdown the pollutants whereas BOD is the amount of ...

Biological phosphorus and nitrogen removal in sequencing batch reactors: effects of cycle length, dissolved oxygen concentration and influent particulate matter

by IWA Publishing  (Sep. 16, 2013)

Removal of phosphorus (P) and nitrogen (N) from municipal wastewaters is required to mitigate eutrophication of receiving water bodies. While most treatment plants achieve good N removal using influent carbon (C), the use of influent C to facilitate enhanced biological phosphorus removal (EBPR) is poorly explored. A number of operational ...

Nutrient removal in reverse osmosis concentrates using a biological aerated filter

by IWA Publishing  (Apr. 8, 2015)

The aim of this study is to employ a biological aerated filter (BAF) in the treatment of reverse osmosis (RO) concentrate received from reuse of treatment plant wastewater. Furthermore, the influence of chemical oxygen demand (COD)/N ratio on the nutrient removal was analyzed to find the detailed removal pathways of nutrients. The result was ...

Improving biological phosphorus removal in membrane bioreactors – a pilot study

by IWA Publishing  (Mar. 11, 2014)

With increasing water reuse applications and possible stringent regulations of phosphorus content in secondary and tertiary effluent discharge in Florida, USA, alternative technologies beyond conventional treatment processes require implementation to achieve low phosphorus (P) and nitrogen (N) concentrations. A pilot scale membrane bioreactor ...

Biological nitrate removal using waste-derived extracts as sole carbon source

by Inderscience Publishers  (Sep. 2, 2014)

Waste-derived multicomponent extracts were investigated as carbon source for biological nitrate removal. Aerobic and anaerobic sludge from a municipal wastewater treatment plant and leachate from an anaerobic digester treating food waste were studied. Alkaline-heat treatment was used for sludge solubilisation. More than 90% carbon was recovered ...

Effects of injection of acetic acid and propionic acid for total phosphorus removal at high temperature in enhanced biological phosphorus removal process

by IWA Publishing  (May 20, 2014)

In summer, wastewater treatment plant total phosphorus (TP) removal efficiency is low in South Korea. The reason is because of high temperatures or significant fluctuation of inflow characteristics caused by frequent rainfall. Hence, this study tried to raise TP removal efficiency by injecting fixed external carbon sources in real sewage. ...

Biological Wastewater Treatment

Untitled Document The use of microorganisms to remove contaminants from wastewater is effective and widespread. To choose the right system from the many options offered, ...

Statistical optimisation for biological decolourisation and COD removal of screen–printing wastewater using Trametes versicolor

by Inderscience Publishers  (Apr. 8, 2013)

The conventional treatment methods employed in decolourisation of industrial wastewater are not effective and lead to generation of hazardous sludge. In the present investigation, a systematic study of three important process variables (concentration of initial colour, glucose and ammonium chloride) influencing the decolourisation and Chemical ...

Nitrogen-removal efficiency in an upflow partially packed biological aerated filter (BAF) without backwashing process

by IWA Publishing  (Mar. 1, 2011)

An upflow, partially packed biological aerated filter (BAF) reactor was used to remove nitrogen in the form of ammonia ions by a nitrification process that involves physical, chemical and biological phenomena governed by a variety of parameters such as dissolved oxygen concentration, pH and alkalinity. Dissolved oxygen (DO) and pH were shown to ...

Monitoring and control of a partially packed biological aerated filter (BAF) reactor for improving nitrogen removal efficiency

by IWA Publishing  (Sep. 1, 2011)

This paper examines on-off systems and automatic monitoring and control of a biological aerated filter to identify the end point of nitrification and denitrification processes, and chemical oxygen demand (COD), ammonia-nitrogen removal (NH3-N) and aeration savings. Oxidation-reduction potential (ORP), pH and dissolved oxygen (DO) were measured ...
