Abstract: The objective of this work was to study the biological wastewater treatment from frozen vegetables industry in sequential batch reactor (SBR), verifying the effect of the volatile suspended solids (VSS) concentration, initial Chemical Oxygen Demand (iCOD) and aeration to remove organic carbon and nitrogen in order to obtain a treated wastewater that meets discharge standards recommended by the Brazilian environmental legislation. In this study, the treatment of wastewaters was done in an SBR using VSS concentration ranging from 2000 mg L-1 and 4000 mg.L-1, iCOD ranging from 300 mg.L-1 and 600 mg.L-1, and aeration ranging between 3 L.min-1 and 6 L.min-1. The results show that the major removal efficiency for COD was 88%, and for Total Kjeldahl Nitrogen (TKN) was 74,9%. The optimized conditions for COD and TKN removal of the studied wastewater were: initial COD of 600 mg.L-1, aeration of 4.5 L.min-1 and VSS concentration of 2000 mg.L-1.
