OXYGEN DEMAND AND THE RATE OF ITS UTILIZATION IN NATURAL RUBBER EFFLUENTS.
BOD5 parameter is a key factor in the design of treatment plant. This study helps to examined the dynamics of BOD5 in natural rubber affluent. The affluent wave stored under room temperature for a period of 14 days. The dissolved oxygen which a major analytic varied as a function of biodegradable organics, and possibly influenced by differences in the daily temperature optimum oxygen consumption was recorded on day 110, while maximum BOD5 value was recorded on day 12. Rate of BOD5 got to a peak at 2.50mg/l/day on day 3, and got to a minimum low at -0.60 on the 14. The average rate of change of BOD5 was 7.8x10-1mg/l/day. These data are very relevant to the design, development, and sanitation of treatment plant in the management of natural rubber affluent and rubber industrial facilities.
