BOD / COD a Measure of Dairy Waste Treatment Efficiency-A Case Study

  title={BOD / COD a Measure of Dairy Waste Treatment Efficiency-A Case Study},
  author={Dr. C. Meiaraj and Dr. N. Balasundaram},
Our environment gets polluted day by day due to the disposal of sewage and industrial waste without proper treatment in a totally unscientific way. Environmental Engineering is concerned with all types of pollution and Industrial waste treatment is the core area under the present study. Dairy industry is one among the highly offensive waste generating areas which increases the pollution rate of the total environment. Dairy industry requires 2.5 to 4litres of water per litre of milk process…
