Biochemical Oxygen Demand Training Introduction, Demonstration, and Troubleshooting
ALL VOCATIONS 3.5 HOURS
Biochemical Oxygen Demand (BOD) is an empirical measure of the biological consumption of oxygen in a sample, usually required for regulatory oversight, waste loadings of treatment plants, and for industrial monitoring and billing related to regulatory oversight costs. BODs can be time demanding and frustratingly unpredictable. This training focuses on how to get the most out of your BOD experience and provide some solutions to BOD testing challenges.
