Pulp & Paper Presentation
MANTECH’s PeCOD® technology is a safe and effective solution for improving wastewater treatment and optimizing the use of chemicals in pulp & paper mills.
The photoelectroChemical Oxygen Demand (peCOD) method overcomes many of the problems associated with standard methods for testing chemical oxygen demand (COD), a key parameter for indirectly measuring the amount of pollution in industrial wastewater. MANTECH’s PeCOD® Analyzer provides fast, accurate and safe chemical oxygen demand analysis using a novel, nanotechnology-based approach that accurately measures COD in less than 15 minutes. Safe for the operator and the environment, peCOD does not require dichromate, mercury, acid or other harmful chemicals used in standard COD-testing methods that take hours to generate results.
Real time data about COD in the wastewater stream allows operators to optimize and reduce the use of chemicals in their processes upstream, saving money while protecting the health of workers and the downstream environment. A summarized presentation outlining the benefits of the peCOD method can be viewed here.
