Biotreatment of restaurant wastewater with an oily high concentration by newly isolated bacteria from oily sludge

High concentration restaurant oily wastewater from restaurants and food processing industries discharged into water environment usually results in environment pollution and inhibits the activity of microorganisms in biological wastewater treatment systems. In this study, 75 strains from oily sludge were isolated with oil degradation activity for edible oil-contained wastewater. Eight isolates were able to grow well in liquid cultures with edible oil as the sole carbon source and discovered with high efficient oil-degrading ability. Seven out of eight isolates were identified as Acinetobacter and one isolate as Kluyvera cryocrescens, based on their 16S rRNA gene sequences. Three highly efficient oil degrading bacteria (Acinetobacter dijkshoorniae LYC46-2, Kluyvera cryocrescens LYC50-1a and Acinetobacter pittii LYC73-4b) were selected and their degradation characteristic were examined, the results showed that the three isolates were effective under pH range from 7.0 to 10.0, and temperature from 25 to 35 °C. For degradation of 2–4% (v/v) of vegetable oil, > 85% degradation percentage were obtained within 30 h. Degradation of the higher concentration oil (6–8%, v/v) result in 50–70% degradation percentage within 72 h, and the degradation percentage for the isolated strains were decreased about 50% for the degradation of 10% oil (< 45%) compared to 2% oil. Different type of oils were also tested, > 90% of degradation percentage were obtained by the three isolates, implied that these strains are capable of removing various oils efficiently. These results suggested that Acinetobacter dijkshoorniae LYC46-2, Kluyvera cryocrescens LYC50-1a and Acinetobacter pittii LYC73-4b are potential species could be efficiently used for high concentration restaurant oily wastewater treatment and might be applicable to a wastewater treatment system for the removal of oil.
