What's In Your Wastewater?

Below are the five main characteristics that make up wastewater.
  • Biological Oxygen Demand (BOD)
  • Chemical Oxygen Demand (COD)
  • Total Suspended Solids (TSS)
  • Total Kjeldah Nitrogen (TKN & TN)
  • Fats, Oils & Grease (FOG)

There may be additional characteristics to consider, which will depend on your unique wastestream. To learn more about the characteristics in wastewater click below:

What's In Your Wastewater?


BOD Compliance

High concentrations of BOD can lead to regulatory issues.  By implementing a system to effectively degrade the BOD in the waste stream your company will have the ability to remain in compliance and reduce risk. We helped our customer increase product production by implementing a system to address their BOD Issue.

COD Compliance

Effluent with high concentrations of COD can lead to compliance issues. 

Our client was out of compliance and the levels of COD concentrations in their influent were increasing. By implementing our bioFAS™ MBBR system, we not only exceeded compliance standards but we helped them increase their production as well.
