In this research, removal of cyanide and COD in tapioca starch wastewater by ozonation and adsorption using GAC examined. The method effectiveness evaluated from percentage of cyanide and COD degradation and ozone mass balance. Effect of degradation method, pH and ozone dose was determined using synthetic wastewater with initial cyanide concentration of 30 ppm and COD concentration of 1000 ppm. Using ozonation adsorption with pH 10 and ozone generation rate of 303 mg O3/h, 91.75% cyanide and 68.94% COD from synthetic wastewater was removed in 1 hour. Tapioca starch wastewater with cyanide concentration of 8.5 ppm and COD concentration of 4625 ppm treated using the same operating condition. Using this method, 87.06% cyanide and 43.23% COD was removed.
