Abstract

Besides inorganic materials (acids, bases and salts), industrial waste water also contains organic substances which have to be “mineralized”, i.e. oxidized to CO2, H2O, N2 (or NO3 ), Cl and SO4 , before the water can be discharged. The main methods for analyzing organic material in waste water are:

TOC

total organic carbon

[mg C/l]

COD

chemical oxygen demand

[mg O/l]

BOD5

biological oxygen demand in five days

[mg O/l]
