	  abstract     = {This study is aimed to investigate feasibility of the
aerobic biological process to treat oily wastewater from palm oil food
industry. Effect of aeration and sludge concentrations are studied.
Raw sludge and raw wastewater was mixed and acclimatized for five
days in a stirred tank reactor. The aeration rate (no aeration, low;
1.5L/min and high rate; 2L/min) and sludge concentration (3675,
7350, and 11025mg/L of VSS) were varied. Responses of process
were pH, COD, oil and grease, VSS, and PHB content. It was found
that the treatment can remove 85.1 to 97.1 % of COD and remove
12.9 to 54.8% of oil & grease. The PHB yield was found to be within
0.15% to 2.4% as PHB/VSS ratio and 0.01% to 0.12% as PHB/COD
removed. The higher aeration results a high COD removal and oil &
grease removal, while experiment without aeration gives better PHB
yield. Higher sludge concentrations (11025mg/L VSS) give higher
removal of oil & grease while moderate sludge concentration
(7350mg/L VSS) give better result in COD removal. Higher PHB
yield is obtained in low sludge concentration (3675mg/L).},
