The possibility of oxidizing at a PbO2 anode the phenols and polyphenols, present in the olive oil mill wastewater, has been studied as a pretreatment for the submission of such wastewater to the traditional biological treatments. The results obtained operating at current densities ranging 500 to 2000 A/m2 show that it is possible to reduce the concentration of the phenolic components, which interfere with the biological treatments, down to low values without decreasing too much the total organic content of the wastewater.
