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

DEFINITION: Emissions per worker are total emissions of organic water pollutants divided by the number of industrial workers. 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.".
