Kitchen waste, containing a huge amount of organic waste, is a source of energy for microbes. The present study was conducted to determine the ability of bacteria to degrade organic substrate and show their electric flux generation potential from kitchen waste. Twenty six bacteria (KW1 to KW26) were isolated from kitchen waste. Only five bacterial isolates, KW8, KW14, KW16, KW22 and KW24, showed ability to degrade cellulose. The highest cellulase activity was shown by isolate KW16 6.84 0.3 IUmL-1, followed by KW14 6.09 0.2 IUmL-1 at 72 h. Only KW16 showed highest electricity generation of 81.9 0.9 mV. These isolates has oxidoreductase enzymes that participate in enhancing electric current generation mechanism in the use of kitchen waste residue. The microbial ability for waste to generate electric current can provide a platform to design a sustainable bioreactor based conversion technology which can increase the source of bioenergy.

Key words: Organic waste, degradation, reduction, electric flux, technology.
