What is NBOD?
Antwort
Nitrogenous Biochemical Oxygen Demand (NBOD) refers to the difference between Biochemical Oxygen Demand (BOD) and Carbonaceous Biochemical Oxygen Demand (CBOD):

NBOD = BOD - CBOD

According to Standard Methods 5210, microorganisms can facilitate the oxidation of reduced forms of nitrogen. This oxidation, or NBOD, is included in a BOD test result. To eliminate NBOD from the total BOD result, a nitrification inhibitor is added to the sample (the test is then referred to as a CBOD test).

More information BOD and CBOD can be found in the following articles:

What is CBOD?

Usually CBOD will be lower than BOD, but the reverse can occur (some microbes can consume the nitrification inhibitor, resulting in an increase in oxygen demand in a CBOD test).
