Abstract: An investigation was carried out to determine the effect of amylase activities from Bacillus licheniformis (Bl), Paenibacillus polymyxa (Pp) and a consortium of both (BlPp). The results showed growth density of 3.58 g/ml and 3.38 g/ml for (Bl) at 9th hour and (Pp) at 7th hour respectively. Amylase activities of 0.45 U/ml and 0.43 U/ml were recorded at optimal pH 7.0 for Bi and Pp, while an increased activity of 0.55 U/ml was recorded for the consortium of (BlPp) at optimal pH 5.0. Similarly, secretome activities were recorded at optimal 50oC with values of 0.48 U/ml and 0.40 U/ml for (Bl) and (Pp), while a higher activity of 0.56 U/ml was observed for the consortium of (BlPp). Although there have been various developments of synthetic co-cultures, the results from this experiment have shown a fundamental and unique approach of natural microbial consortium application for synthesis of refined industrial byproduct.
