Abstract:

Three new methods are described for determining the pollution loading on a waste treatment plant or a stream. These are Total Organic Carbon TOC, Total Oxygen Demand TOD, and the Carbon Dioxide Demand CO2D. All of these can be used to replace or supplement the conventional Biochemical Oxygen Demand BOD and Chemical Oxygen Demand COD procedures. Graphs which show the relationship between the three techniques and the conventional COD and BOD tests are included for industrial and domestic wastes.
