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

With our Eco-Tox setup, NimkarTek provides a range of ecological and toxicological tests for chemicals and water. These include :

  1. Biological Oxygen Demand (BOD)
  2. Chemical Oxygen Demand (COD)
  3. Ready Biodegradability
  4. Inherent Biodegradability
  5. Algal Inhibition Toxicity (EC50)
  6. Total Dissolved Solids (TDS) and Total Suspended Solids (TSS)
  7. Oil & grease

Algal Growth Inhibition Toxicity

Algal Growth Inhibition Toxicity is an alternative test to the traditional fish toxicity test (LC50) which is slowly being discouraged due to a ban on Animal Testing.

The purpose of this test is to determine the effects of a substance on the growth rate of unicellular green algal species. NimkarTek is proud to offer this test for all chemical manufacturers who need to test the aquatic toxicity of their chemical. This data can then be entered in the Section 12 of your Safety Data Sheet (SDS).

Water Analysis

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

  • ZDHC Restricted Chemical Groups in water

  • Total Suspended Solids (TSS)
  • Total Hardness as CaCO3
  • Aluminium
  • pH
  • Chlorides
  • Sulphates
  • Total Alkalinity
  • Turbidity
  • Iron
  • Colour – Hazen Units
