The aim of this work is to study the combined effect of colloids and soluble microbial products (SMP) on membrane fouling. Two MBRs were investigated for treating two types of wastewater (wwt). Domestic wwt presented 5.5 times more SMP proteins and 11 times more SMP carbohydrates compared to the synthetic one. In contrast, synthetic wwt had 20% more colloids with a size lower than membrane pore size than domestic. Finally, the TMP at 36 days reached 16 kPa for synthetic wwt and 11 kPa for domestic. Consequently, the quantity of colloids and possibly their special characteristics play a more important role in membrane fouling compared to the SMP, a novel conclusion that can be used for mitigation of membranes fouling.
