The membrane bioreactor system (MBR) with pre-treatment of sponge tray bioreactor (STB) was evaluated at different operating conditions for treating primary treated sewage (PTS). The result indicated the successful removal of DOC with the efficiency of higher than 95%. The highest nutrient removal efficiency of 83.6% (NH4-N) and 75.5% (PO4-P) was observed at sludge concentration of 330 mg/L. Specific oxygen uptake rate (SOUR) of activated sludge in MBR kept increasing up to 6 mg O2/g VSS h during stage IV. The sludge volume index (SVI) of less than 100 mL/g during the operation indicated the good settling property of the sludge. At highest sludge concentration of 5 g/L, trans-membrane pressure (TMP) was increasing dramatically during first 15 d up to 25 kPa; however it was only 6 kPa at lower sludge concentrations. It is concluded that the system showed the highest performance at stage III with sludge concentration of 330 mg/L.
