Résumé

Exopolymeric substances (EPS) are produced by numerous microorganisms as their defense mechanism, in response to hostile conditions. Recently EPS have been reported to be used as a potential bioflocculant for settling and dewatering of solid waste generated in wastewater treatment plants. In our previous study (Klai et al., 2015) we reported the production of EPS by newly isolated strain Cloacibacterium normanense NK6. In this study, we report the simultaneous production of EPS and lipid by C. normanense. The EPS production and lipid accumulation by the bacterium was enhanced by varying the carbon-nitrogen (C/N) ratio in sterilized activated sludge media supplemented with crude glycerol as additional carbon source. Sterilized activated sludge was inoculated with 5% (v/v) of C. normanense. At low C/N ratio, lipid content was found to be low, but EPS concentration was significantly high while at high C/N ratio, an increase in lipid % (g/g cell dry weight) and a decrease in EPS concentration was observed. The best results were obtained using C/N 25. C. normanense accumulated a lipid content of 27.6% (w/w) and 22 g/L of EPS in 72 h. Therefore, Cloacibacterium sp. appears to be a suitable candidate for fermentation processes to produce EPS and lipid from renewable resources.
