Abstract: 
Leakage of petroleum constituents in the areas around Tehran Oil Refinery (TOR) has caused the hydrocarbon constituents to spread around this site. Poly aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHS) are a large group of petroleum compounds, which could be harmful for human if they are inhaled, ingested, or absorbed by the skin. In this research, 16 soil samples were collected from the south of TOR around the polluted stream with grid sampling method and 3 samples from the center of the stream. The research followed by gas chromatography analysis of the PAHs contaminants. Analyses indicate high concentration of pollutants in this area. Two hazardous PAH compounds namely; naphtalene and fluoranthene were evaluated. Physical and hazardous characteristics of these contaminants were assessed based on geotechnical properties of the soils located near to the refinery. The soils clean up levels at the site were calculated via inhalation of these volatile carcinogenic organics.
In this study, acquired clean up levels or the maximum allowable concentrations of the contaminants in the site were compared with the existing concentrations. The results indicate that the concentrations of naphthalene in the all samples were also higher than required clean up level 3.9 ppm. The existing concentrations in the central axis of the stream 255 ppm also exceeded 60 times higher than the treatment limit. Based on simple structure of naphtalene and due to geotechnical properties of the soils, phyto-remediation and biological methods are recommended to clean up the site.
