NutriServe BOD Serve is a perfect alternate to starch to increase BOD.

An excellent alternative to starch/jaggery for increasing BOD to generate healthy biomass during ETP/STP commissioning & routine operation.

  • Category: Starch alternate
  • NutriServe BOD Serve, a liquid product formulated from complex polysaccharides, offers a solution to low BOD challenge. Developed by TATA NQ and widely promoted by Amalgam Engineering, this product is readily soluble in water and becomes active immediately upon addition.

    NutriServe BOD Serve, a cutting-edge solution meticulously formulated to optimize the biological oxygen demand (BOD) in wastewater treatment processes. Crafted using advanced microbial consortia and nutrient-rich additives, NutriServe BOD Serve stands as a superior alternative to traditional starch or jaggery methods, offering unparalleled performance in Effluent Treatment Plants (ETP) and Sewage Treatment Plants (STP) commissioning and routine operation.

    In practice, if BOD levels in secondary treatment are insufficient, artificial products are intentionally added to boost the BOD value. For instance, maize starch is commonly used for this purpose, despite its limited solubility in water, requiring labor-intensive preparation of a slurry.

When BOD/COD ratio is less than the ideal ratio of 1:2. If the BOD level is below 1, BOD enhancer should be added to enhance BOD. This will rapidly increase BOD/COD multiply microorganism population.

1 kg BOD enhancer gives 1.6kg BOD.

No. Rather it improves water quality.
