Palmoil industry is needed potentially applicable processes to treat its wastewater due to water scarcity and submerged membrane technology in one of the special system. However, the application of submerged membrane for industrial wastewater treatment is still in its infancy due to high operational costs. This study reports the economic analysis of submerged membrane for palmoil industry wastewater treatment. Energy consumptions and costs of this system are among the main parameters affecting water filtration system and permeate water final cost. A semi-empirical method was employed for determining operation and maintenance (O&M) and investment costs. PVDF fibers in a specially designed holder providing out-in feed were used in a lab-scale aerated membrane system. Results showed that the flux, total suspended solids (TSS) and sulfide removal of 148.82 L/m2h, 99.82 % and 89.2%, respectively, could be achieved by increasing the air bubbles flow rate due to increase of turbulence around fibers. Moreover, the invesment and production costs were estimated to be the total annual cost per year and costs for treated reuse water ofUSD 39,174.35 and 7.02/GPD, respectively. Therefore, the costs of engineering can be reduced considerably and as available option to design such wastewater treatment system
