This paper reviewed research works on biodegradability of organic matter containing materilas, attempting to provide a tool for treatment and monitoring strategies. Organic matter parameters were simplified as BOD, COD and BOD/COD ratio. Treatment methods were classified into natural, physical, chemical, biological, phytotechnological and combined treatment. For various operating conditions, it was formulated the zonation of the BOD/COD ratio and characterized by the limits of toxic, biodegradable and acceptable or stable zones.
