Biological utilisation of fatty waste - initial laboratory examination
Languages of publication
This article presents the process of biodegradation of aliphatic substances in oily bleaching soil. For the experiment, oily bleaching soil from the NZPT (a fat-processing plant) from the town of Brzeg was used. Its characteristic features were a high aliphatic substance content and low (3.8-4.5) pH. By means of experiment three composites of bacteria and yeast were prepared with the use of field and library strains. In a 44-day process, the mixture of field and library strains caused the aliphatic substance content in the oily bleaching soil to drop by 69-71%. The application of bacterial and yeast strains proved efficient for the aliphatic low-pH waste.
