High income OECD countries Compared by Environment > Pollution > Organic water pollutant > BOD emissions > Kg per day

DEFINITION: Organic water pollutant (BOD) emissions (kg per day). 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.
