•Metal chelating affinity membrane chromatography is used to prepare biocatalytic membrane.•Metal ions have a significant effect on laccase activity recovery and its specific activity.•Cascade catalysis with stacked biocatalytic membranes improves BPA degradation.•Membrane fouling by BPA polymerization products causes BPA removal decline.•Biocatalytic membrane regeneration is achieved by simple elution-cleaning-reloading.
