Reduction in COD

With the Scogen Ultrasound Reactors, reduction in COD (Chemical Oxygen Demand) of the effluent from the digester is assured. If biogas increases by 15%, then COD reduction will be a further 15%.

In most effluent streams, COD is present due to high concentration of Insoluble COD in the final effluent from the biogas digesters. Using the Scogen Ultrasound Reactors, the Insoluble COD or rather difficult COD is converted to soluble COD thus increasing the biogas production. This conversion of insoluble to soluble COD will result in a further decrease of the COD in the final effluent from biogas digesters. Therefore this reduction aids in reducing the load on the current effluent treatment systems.
