Physical Processes to Reduce BOD Testing Times

Sustainability icon, disabled. A green leaf.

This FURI project will align with the Ira A. Fulton Schools of Engineering research theme of sustainability. Although not a direct water treatment process, Biochemical Oxygen Demand (BOD) testing is a measurement of water quality and can be used in conjunction with a water treatment system. BOD testing is therefore an important parameter to have in the determination of clean drinking water. Better BOD testing will also result in a faster process of clean water determination.
