Abstract


The use of polyoethylene degradable polyethylene in Indonesia, especially in West Kalimantan, is high enough to potentially cause environmental pollution. One way to resolve pollution caused by polyethylene oxo-degradable plastic waste is to utilize isolates from the peat soil around the Kuala Dua Final Disposal Site, Rasau Jaya, which is able to degrade oxo-degradable polyethylene. This research aims to determine the bacterial genera that can to be expected to degrade Oxo-Degradable Polyethylene. Samples were taken from peat soil with the incubation method of oxo-degradable polyethylene for 2 weeks, 4 weeks and 6 weeks. Isolation use the pour plate method with Enrichment Broth Media and Enrichment Agar Media. The isolation results obtained 9 (nine) bacterial isolates which are distinguished based on incubation time and morphological characters.
