This paper describes the methodology and solution to automate and monitor a sewage treatment plant from an industry dedicated to the manufacture of wood panels. The control system designed, not only governs all elements of performance of the plant, but also oversees its proper functioning. It also has a human-machine interface with a daily working and emergency program, accompanied by an information system supported by records and alarms to facilitate human decisions making if were necessary. The proposed solution, not only increases the reliability and safety of the process with respect to plants or other type semi-automatic operation, but also reduces costs by improving process efficiency and minimizes costs in maintenance and monitoring.
