Abstract

Wide use of synthetic plastics increases the environmental concerns of non-biodegradable wastes which home pathogenic organisms and contamination with particles of toxic compounds leached into ground water and other organic pollutants associated with plastics wastes. This research aimed at developing a biodegradable polymer using plantain peels flour with Bacillius siamensis kcTcT 13613(T). During fermentation, optical density, pH and incubation time were monitored. After 48 hours of incubation, the polymer were extracted using chloroform and 63% dried cell weight were gotten. FT-IR analysis peak at wave numbers 1656 cm-1 revealed ester carbonyl (C=O) stretching groups, the GC-MS Chromatogram apex at (7.957) which correspond to polyhydroxybutyrate spectral. This study provides economic insight use of plantain peels cultured with Bacillus Siamensis KcTc 13613(T) is capable of producing biodegradable polymer (PHB) that is environmental friendly.
