Eco-Tox Testing

Ecological and Toxicological parameters of chemicals are vital for safe use of chemicals, wastewater treatment and for disposal considerations.

Through our brand new Eco-Tox setup, NDL provides a range of ecological and toxicological tests for chemicals and water. These include –

  1. Biological Oxygen Demand (BOD) – as per OECD 301F, APHA 5210B, APHA 5210C and APHA 5210D
  2. Chemical Oxygen Demand (COD) – as per APHA 5220D
  3. Ready Biodegradability – as per OECD 301
  4. Inherent Biodegradability – as per OECD 302B
  5. Algal Inhibition Toxicity (EC50) – as per OECD 201
  6. Total Dissolved Solids (TDS) and Total Suspended Solids (TSS)

Algal Growth Inhibition Toxicity:
The purpose of this test is to determine the effects of a substance on the growth rate of unicellular green algal species. This test is carried out on unicellular algae and hence acts as a alternative to determining the environment toxicity of a chemical (LC50), which was traditionally done through testing on fish.
NimkarTek is proud to offer this test for all chemical manufacturers who need to test the toxicity of their chemical. This value can be used to complete the Toxicity data in ‘Safety Data Sheets’ and under GOTS version 5.0.

Water Analysis:

Suppliers are facing increasing pressure to ensure that the water discharged by them is free from hazardous component. NDL offers testing of water and waste-water in order to ensure that you are meeting the various regulatory and industry requirements.
