Caprolactam wastewater produced by the production process of caprolactam is characterized by a very high toxicity and chemical oxygen demand (COD) values, having potential harm to the environment if treated improperly. However, these characteristics make caprolactam wastewaters difficult to treat using traditional methods. So the aim of this work was to develop a cost-effective caprolactam wastewater treatment process. Fenton oxidation, sequencing batch reactor activated sludge process (SBR) and electro-catalytic oxidation were proposed to treat caprolactam wastewater in the laboratory scale, and the treatment effects were investigated. Compared with Fenton oxidation, SBR and electro-catalytic oxidation can treat caprolactam wastewater at a lower cost and more efficiently. The pilot test results indicate that the COD can be decreased to less than 1000 mg/L by the combination process, and when the COD removal rates maintain 90%, the cost of caprolactam wastewater treatment is below 6 yuan/m3. The combination process showed better economic benefit.
