Isolation and characterization of a lipid-degrading bacterium and its application to lipid-containing wastewater treatment.

To construct an efficient lipid-containing wastewater treatment system, microorganisms that degrade lipids efficiently were isolated from various environmental sources. Strain DW2-1 showed the highest rate of degradation of 1% (w/v) salad oil among the isolated strains. Strain DW2-1 was identified as Burkholderia sp. and designated Burkholderia sp. DW2-1… CONTINUE READING
