    Abstract
    Three bioaugmentation products, coded as BFL, FF and Gnz, were investigated for their ability to degrade waste-cooking fats and their suitability in relation to their microbial composition. The remaining fat was determined gravimetrically and bacteria present were identified using biochemical and molecular approaches. Screening of hydrolytic enzymes was also performed. Bacillus spp. dominated; however, FF product also contained 2 Pseudomonas spp. and 1 fungus. 16S rRNA sequencing confirmed most of the results obtained by the API system. Closely related Bacillus subtilis and...
