What is CBOD?
Definition of CBOD
CBOD (carbonaceous biochemical oxygen demand) represents the BOD from organic compounds and oxidation of inorganic compounds such as ferrous iron and sulfide. Any BOD from nitrifying organisms, which consume oxygen in the nitrification process of converting ammonia to nitrate, is removed by adding a nitrification inhibitor.
