Environment > Water pollution > Organic water pollutant > BOD emissions > Kg per day: Countries Compared

DEFINITION: Emissions of organic water pollutants are measured by biochemical oxygen demand, which refers to the amount of oxygen that bacteria in water will consume in breaking down waste. This is a standard water-treatment test for the presence of organic pollutants.".
