Chemical oxygen demand (COD removal on ultrafiltration membrane were studied from treating of coolant wastewater. The membranes were fabricated via the dry-jet wet spinning method. The experiment was conducted using synthetic coolant wastewater as effluent, and an experimental set-up consist of membrane reservoir was used throughout the investigation. Deposition and accumulation of suspended solids on the membrane surface during filtration were prohibited with continuous aeration. Membrane performance was measured as well as flux and COD removal efficiency. The RSM was performed to investigate the optimised process conditions for treating coolant wastewater. Results using RSM-approximation have demonstrated the improvement in COD removal of 99.63%. This improvement is achieved by optimised process conditions of mixed liquor suspended solids (MLSS) concentration, air bubble flow rate (ABFR), hydraulic retention time (HRT) and pH at 6.00 g/L, 3.05 ml/min, 280.50 min, and 6.50 respectively.
