In this paper, a combined process of electrocoagulation and breakpoint chlorination for fluoride and ammonia removal was investigated in bench scale and pilot scale experiments. After the analysis of bench scale experiments, in electrochemical defluorination process, the residual concentration of fluoride was found to be 5.6 mg/L under the optimal conditions (pH = 6.0; current intensity = 1.0 A). In breakpoint chlorination process, the residual concentration of ammonia was 9.6 mg/L under the optimal conditions (pH = 10.0; NaClO concentration = 2.0‰). The operation performance was also evaluated by pilot scale experiments. The present study provided an economical and feasible way to treat high concentration of ammonia nitrogen and fluoride from electroplating wastewater.
