The optimization of treatment lines of industrial WWTP is vital and indispensable to ensure compliance with the environmental requirements of each industry. The optimization becomes often necessary by alterations in production or periodic or seasonal variations in the quality of industrial effluents.

For any of the situations it is necessary to respond quickly on the set up of the treatment in order to avoid disruption of treatment that may lead to operation problems and breaches of licenses.

Optimizing the WWTP based in the optimization of operating costs and maintenance is also an important process, since the maintenance costs of treatment units have considerable weight in the aspect of every business environment, and the optimization of resources and reagents used in these units represents such an important environmental concern as the treatment of the effluent itself.
