COD mass balance and the composition of intermediate

Table 2 shows the COD mass balances, that include the measured influent and effluent COD and the equivalent COD for both hydrogen gas (8 g-COD g−1-H2, at 55 °C) and Lapatinib synthesis (1.42 g-COD g−1-VSS). The products detected using analytical methods represented 67% of the total COD measured, and the hydrogen gas and biomass synthesis in the APBR composed approximately 0.6% and 4.3% of the total COD, respectively (Table 2).
