The normality test indicated a normal distribution for the values of removal efficiency of the COD, [COD.sub.F], carbohydrate, total solids of the liquid phase and total volatile solids (p-value 0,33266).
Total solids were calculated after drying the samples overnight in an oven at 105[degrees]C, and passed through a muffle furnace set at 550[degrees]C for 2 hours for the measurement of total volatile solids [8].
sludge (inoculum); b--Sodium bicarbonate (buffering agent); pH--hydrogen potential; BA--bicarbonate alkalinity; COD--chemical oxygen demand; TVS--total volatile solids; C/N--carbon/nitrogen ratio Table 3.
Table 2 shows that the Total Volatile Solids increased in a logarithmic relation represented in the equation y=2133.31 In (x) - 501.69 ([r.sup.2] = 0.87), with the occurring to the Total Fixed Solids (y=2201.71 In (x) 7488.8, [r.sup.2] = 0.87), which presented significant increases in each time evaluated.
The difference between total solids and total fixed solids resulted in total volatile solids. Chemical oxygen demand (COD), which corresponds to the chemical oxidation of organic matter, was obtained by means of a strong oxidant, potassium dichromate ([K.sub.2][Cr.sub.2][O.sub.7]), in acidic medium, at high temperature.
The average biogas production with HRT of 20, 40, and 60 days was 46.8, 79.9, and 89.1 mL/g TS as well as 55.2, 94.3, and 105.2 mL/g volatile solids, respectively.
The inorganic fraction of the sediments did not present significant temporal or spatial changes; however, volatile solids (Anova = 6.59, P = 0.006319) and carbohydrates (Anova = 3.66, P = 0.043308) increased during the rainy season in comparison with the Northern and dry seasons.
The mass of organic material can be expressed as volatile solids (Vesilind, 1998) or biological or chemical oxygen demand (Tchobanoglous et al., 2003).

The parameters analyzed for the characterization were: Total Solids (TS), Volatile Solid (VS), Total Suspended Solid (TSS), Volatile Suspended Solid (TSS) and Chemical Oxygen Demand (COD) contents according to the standard methods of American Public Health Association [9].
