Sum parameter analysis TOC, TN, and AOX in wastewater

The sum parameters total organic carbon (TOC) and total bound nitrogen (TNb) have to be measured routinely at the influent and effluent of a sewage treatment plant, both to operate the plant in the best possible manner and to meet legal limits. A sub-fraction of TOC belongs to a more toxic and persistent substance class of the halogenated hydrocarbons, which can be determined by the sum parameter AOX (adsorbable organically bound
halogens).

EU wastewater monitoring – TOC a key parameter

As a result of the implementation of the EU Industrial Emissions Directive (IED), the TOC parameter, in particular, is being introduced broadly into the monitoring of wastewater in various industries. Read this article to learn which industries are affected and how you can prepare for the new requirements.

Elemental analysis AAS, ICP-MS, and ICP-OES

The analysis of toxic and ecotoxic elements is an important topic in environmental monitoring. All over the world defined regulations exist for analytical methods for the quantitative detection of lowest element concentrations. Special challenges for environmental monitoring laboratories are high sample throughput and the increasing complexity of the parameters to be monitored, as well as the increasing demands on the detection limits, all this at lowest costs.

Reliable detection of heavy metals in industrial wastewater and sludges

Heavy metals such as lead (Pb), cadmium (Cd) or nickel (Ni) are often released into the environment through industrial effluents and sludges. Some of these metals are toxic and can pollute soils and natural waters ecologically. Control of these effluents and sludges is therefore essential. Here you can find out which reliable analytical methods exist and how you can safely detect heavy metals in industrial wastewater and sludge.

UV/Vis spectroscopy Double-beam UV/Vis photometry

Many parameters in wastewater, which have to be monitored regularly, such as ammonia, nitrate, nitrite, phosphate, turbidity, SAC, COD, and BOD can be analyzed with UV/Vis spectrophotometers. Herewith not only qualitative and quantitative analyses of the parameters are possible, but also substance-specific information can be obtained. The measurement results by means of UV/Vis spectrometry are quickly available, reliable, and cost-effective. They are suitable for optimization and control of processes in wastewater treatment plants and for checking the reference and limit values.
