The perfonmance of the electrolytic flotation and peroxidation of vinasse was studied using steel electrodes in monopolar configuration. The influence of: initial of the suspension, density of current (DC) and concentration of H2O2 by Taguchi methodology were evaluated. Reductions were achieved in the order of 63% in total solids (TS), 57% total organic carbon (TOC) and 99.7% in turbidity. The most influential variables in the process were: the concentration of H2O2 and the initial pH.
