Abstract: Phenol is one of the most common organic pollutants which is toxic even at low concentrations. The main objective of this study was to survey the effect of phenol concentration on the anaerobic waste stabilization pond efficiency for the treatment of oil refinery wastewater in high temperature. In this study, phenol was added as the input for the WSP at various concentrations at high temperature. N-NH3, phenol, COD, BOD and pH affecting the efficiency of anaerobic WSP were investigated which were utilized for the treatment of oil refinery waste water. The results obtained were indicating that the efficiency of anaerobic WSP increase when the concentration of phenol was decreasing (in temperature of 32°C). Also, the efficiency of the anaerobic WSP utilized for the treatment of oil refinery wastewater will be improved if temperature would be high and concentration of phenol would be low.
