Will application of SpillRemed (Marine) increase biochemical oxygen demand (BOD)?

No. SpillRemed (Marine) does not increase BOD. BOD rises as the load of organically rich waste that depletes oxygen in water increases, often creating anoxic or oxygen free conditions. SpillRemed (Marine) is rich in bacterial population, but not rich in organic nutrients that contribute to increase in BOD. Bacteria in SpillRemed (Marine) are aerobic and die in the absence of oxygen reducing the possibility of creating anoxic conditions. Thus, SpillRemed (Marine) does not contribute to an increase BOD.
