MANTECH PeCOD® Analyzer: trusted, daily BOD

Craft breweries can produce five to 10 litres of wastewater for every litre of beer that they package and sell. High in organic matter and suspended solids, the wastewater’s impact can be equivalent to adding another small town to a municipality’s water treatment burden. It’s also a challenge for brewers when they must pay water consumption surcharges and find ways to optimize their processes.

Flying Monkeys Craft Brewery in Barrie, Ontario added a Benchtop L100 PeCOD® Analyzer to their in-house laboratory in early 2017.


“The PeCOD system was a game changer. We can now know almost immediately the range of effluent we are releasing into the sewer system, and if we are meeting compliance for our Region. It can help us regulate adjustments in our daily processes instantly if required. With a 5-day wait on BOD-5 sampling, you do not have the luxury to be as quickly proactive within your plant; therefore, allowing yourself to be more vulnerable to receive Regional compliance fines.”

– Danielle Chaput, Biochemist, Technical & Experimental Brewster, Yeast Whisper & Mad Scientist, Flying Monkeys Craft Brewery

PeCOD® offers a unique nanotechnology-based approach to COD analysis that overcomes many of the problems encountered by existing COD analysis methods, making it the new global standard for COD analysis in laboratories, municipal wastewater treatment plants and industrial production facilities. The PeCOD® has been validated by the Ontario Ministry of the Environment (Method E3515), who now uses the PeCOD® exclusively for COD analysis.
