Cellulose-degrading bacteria were isolated and identified from cocopeat which has a good quality as a bulking agent in composting. Various bacteria from different sourecs of cocopeat were detected on CMC agar media, and these were found to be Burkholderia sp., Bacillu subtilis, Sphingomonas sp., Rhodotorula sp. and Pseudomonas sp. etc. Among these, four bacteria were further selected and analyzed for their biochemical characteristics and CMCase activities. CMCase activities of four bacteria, P. aeruginosa, P. stutzeri, B. subtilis, and P. luteola were found to be 83%, 40%, 8% and 6%, respectively, compared with that of the standard strain Cellulomonas sp..

Keywords: Bacillus sp.; cocopeat; cellulose degrading microorganism; Pseudomonas sp.
