1. Introduction The environment degradation is consequence of industrial effluents sewage in a inadequate way, that has been bringing about serious problems of contamination on several world coutries [1]. The industrial process produces a large toxic molecules range that could foul the air and water, because result in negatives impacts for ecosystem and human being [2]. The phenols are toxic compound to microorganisms and can be hard to be removed for the system over biological treatment or by natural procedure in aquatic environment [3]. Phenol is one of the most ordinary organic compound and its found like effluent in many industries, such as oil refining, petrochemical, pharmaceutical products, dyes, Textile Industry, manufacture of organic chemicals and others [4]. According [5], believes that the necessary process at chemical area; chemical engineering specifically; will be achieved by multidisciplinary and a comprehensive approach, that it will be through constants scientific innovations and powerful computational tools.
According [6] increase the importance of shaping and simulation on chemical engineering development. These methods are critical technologies to reach the industrial purpose in process area. This work consists on Monte Carlo simulation appliance at phenolic effluent treatment. It was used a comparative approach of simulation relative to orthogonal array of Taguchi for the Environment variables, such as, Total Organic Carbon (TOC), phenols and Chemical Oxygen Demand (COD). 2. literature review 2.1. Operational Research Human mistakes over an operation and consequent operational risk enlargement are the main concern for all sections. Besides, human reliability analysis with probabilistic Risk analysis is a key element in reducing the operational risk. A prevision technique average of human error and risk of standardized plan and the reliability human methods has been used to quantify distinct human errors categories [7].

In this work were performed a deterministic simulation of multiple TOC, COD and Phenols responses respectively represented by Y1, Y2 e Y3according to table 1. This Table were obtained the target values of deterministic simulation realized, so we can compare the values obtained in the experimental planning. Target values showed huge relevance if compared to Taguchi. Mathematic model coefficients follows a distribution.

Figure 2. Best solution with Monte Carlo simulation (% COD)
On Monte Carlo simulation were realized 5000 interactions. In Figure 1, the percentage optimization of Total Organic Carbon (TOC) removal was realized, in which the optimization time was 1 minute and 04 seconds and, then, obtained a stabilization of the best solution. Software improved the outcome of 21,47 to 33,27, in other words, 54,26% was an improvement in the variable response. In Figure 2, the optimization of removal percentage of Chemical Oxigen Demand (COD) was realized and, in a time of 1 minute and 18 seconds obtained a better stabilization solution. Software improved the outcome of 44,13 to 67,64, in other words, 53,28% was an improvement in the variable response. In Figure 3, the optmization of removal percentage of total phenols was realizes and, in a time of 1 minute and 47 seconds obtained a better stabilization solution. Software improved the outcome of 93,83 to 100, in other words, 6,28%
was an improvement in the variable response. Presented data showed a significant improvement ofvariable response percentage removal which proves the validity of the optimization method. On Table 2, the individual values of each variable response were optimized by Compromise Programming (CP) function. The problem is multiobjective, and, therefore the optimization is performed in this way, in which the target value obtained is used and the weights assigned to each variable. The obtained value in CP function was 5,9, in other words, features a value of great importance, because the rejection rate was around 6,95%. This indicates a great quality of obtained data, because in experimental chemical problems the maximum allowed value must be less than 10%. In CP function was obtained weights for variable responses, in which the values are like 0,333; in other words, being also significant for the optimization process.
