Pseudo-persistent organic pollutants, such as anionic surfactants (AS), are nowadays among the more complex problems that threaten the aquatic environments and other environmental compartments. The present work describes the identification and efficiency of a consortium, isolated from Algerian industrial wastewater, to remove three anionic surfactants (i.e., sodium dodecylbenzenesulfonate (SDBS), sodium dodecyl sulfate (SDS) and sodium lauryl ether sulfate (SLES)). The genetic analysis of 16S rRNA indicated that these strains are Alcaligenes faecalis, Enterobacter cloacae and Serratia marcescens. Under aerobic conditions, pH 7.0 and optimum temperature of 30 °C, the mixed consortium allowed to degrade 85.1% of initial SDBS amount after 144 h of incubation with half-life of 20.8 h. While E. cloacae and S. marcescens pure strains eliminated 46% and 41% less SDBS respectively. Evenly, SDS was degraded at only 23.71% by A. faecalis strain. However, the degradation capacity of SDS by the consortium was very high (94.2%) with a half-life of 9.8 h. The SLES anionic surfactant showed a lower biodegradation by the consortium (47.53%) due to the presence of ether oxide units in the chemical structure of SLES which induced toxicity to the medium. The investigation of the biodegradation of this type of organic pollutants by microorganisms has recently become a key issue for the environmental protection area.
