Abstract

The inexpensive agricultural fatty by-products could be usefully converted to polyhydroxyalkanoates (PHAs) by properly selected and/or developed microbes. In this paper, several new isolates and collection PHA-producing microbes have been screened for both lipolytic activities and PHAs production. A variety of slaughterhouse lipid-rich residues have been explored as substrate, such as crude glycerol from biodiesel, biodiesel obtained from fatty residues, bacon rind, udder and tallow
