The purpose of this article is to describe a global methodology for industrial wastewater management with the objective of implementing treatment units on site. Such program encompass site mapping, effluent characterization and treatment tests. Results from a steel mill effluent, where this global approach was applied, will be presented throughout this paper. The first step is an accurate mapping of the manufacturing site, in order to detect streams contributing mainly to the global pollution and to focus treatments on these streams. Biological treatment tests were carried out, with the purpose of being implemented on site. The combination of biological treatment and Fenton process was carried out on a particular effluent, to treat biodegradable and refractory COD. The impact of wastewater treatments, whether on-site implemented or lab-scale, on global discharge was evaluated.
