GLRPPR Sector Resource: Pollution Prevention Pays in Food Processing: Using COD to Measure Lost Product

Title:
Pollution Prevention Pays in Food Processing: Using COD to Measure Lost Product

Abstract:
COD and BOD5 are of special interest to the food processing industry as they can be useful tools for indicating lost product and wasteful practices. High BOD5 and COD levels indicate increased amounts of product lost to the waste stream. Greater numbers of food processing plants are taking steps to reduce waste and save water because of rising treatment costs and increased environmental standards. BOD5 and COD measurements can help isolate areas of severe waste.
