On June 29th, ALCLE Environmental Solutions successfully delivered the PeCOD® COD Analyzer installation at Nankai University in Tianjin, China. This is another successful showcase of this promising and innovative technology in the China market. ALCLE is a consulting company based out of Waterloo, Ontario that works to bridge the gap between innovative North American technologies and the extensive Chinese market.
MANTECH’s revolutionary PeCOD® COD Analyzer technology provides accurate chemical oxygen demand (COD) results in 15 minutes, without the use of harmful chemicals, such as potassium dichromate and mercury. The PeCOD® COD Analyzer’s patented nano-technology is highly adaptable for wastewater and drinking water applications. Its safe and fast COD analysis saves time and costs, while protecting the environment, and the health and safety of workers. The installation at Nankai University includes an automated sample preparation and delivery system, which automates all manual portions of the peCOD method (sample preparation, stirring, analysis) and allows researchers to set up large sample batches to run unattended.
The Automated PeCOD® COD Analyzer will be used by Dr. Jeanne Huang of the College of Environmental Science and Engineering at Nankai University. The instrument will be used for a wide variety of research involving analysis of both water and wastewater. One of the first areas of research will include a study on brewery effluent, an application that is well established for the peCOD method (view case studies on peCOD Applications in breweries at this LINK). Breweries around the world are currently using the PeCOD® COD Analyzer for rapid determination of organic loading in their waste streams. This information is used for optimization of treatment processes, determination of process stream quality, and monitoring of effluent to ensure discharge to sanitary sewers is within compliance of local regulations.
MANTECH looks forward to continuing its successful relationship with ALCLE and providing high quality water analysis equipment for industries throughout China.
