In industrial effluents, the presence of an infinite number of possible mixtures of substances and the high variability of chemical conditions ask for an evaluation of biodegradability by a global and simple method. Biological oxygen demand after five days (BOD5) using synthetic wastewater was studied by two different ways: dilution and manometric methods. It can therefore be established that BOD5 obtained by adding manufactured inocula to the synthetic medium (effluent containing known and… CONTINUE READING
