In this whitepaper we discuss the most important reasons for COD measurement in industrial wastewater processes.
To protect the health of ecosystems, wastewater treatment is essential. It is important because the water supply is restored and the planet is protected from toxins. Good wastewater treatment makes it possible to reuse the maximum amount of water, instead of wasting it. A good operated and maintained wastewater treatment system saves a lot of money in the long term. Also, good control of the WWTP can optimize the production of a brewery, because it can be detected what is being discharged and when.
In wastewater treatment, the Chemical Oxygen Demand (COD) is an important measurement of the amount of oxygen that is required to break down pollutants (organic substances) in water.
