Spanish term or phrase: DQO
As in:
"...partiendo de unos parámetros a la entrada en DQO desde 25.000 mg/l hasta valores 100.000 mg/l, y con importantes concentraciones de sólidos en suspensión..."

The text is about purification of effluents from a series of food processing plants.

Eurodic translates it as COD ("chemical oxygen demand" from "demanda química de oxígeno"). Would that fit this context?
