Abstract

A microbial agent was developed for the bioremediation of near shore wetland using a microbial consortium composed of Rhodoccus sp. EBht1 and Pseudomonas sp. EBht3 for the industrial use of the microbial consortium as a bioremediation agent. Marine Broth (MB) medium used for growth of the consortium was modified with addition of new component or deletion of some components of the medium for the purpose of lowering the cost of production, resulting in the discovery of an optimized and modified MB medium. Using the optimized medium, the constructed microbial consortium was cultured in a large scale through batch and fed-batch culture method. A liquid microbial agent was made using the consortium cells produced in a large scale and it was evaluated for the removal of organic compounds. Furthermore, a powered microbial agent was also developed through the formulation process after freeze-drying of the consortium cells. The formulated microbial agent was evaluated for the removal of organic compounds under various environmental conditions and found to work an effective role as a bioremediation agent.
