Six sequencing batch reactors (SBRs) were initially fed with synthetic feed containing acetate and operated at different organic loading rates (OLRs) of 0.5, 1.0, 1.5, 2.0, 2.5, and 3.0 gCOD l-1 day-1 for PHA-storing bacteria enrichment. The maximum PHA content and yield (YPHA/S) were 67.44 ± 5.88 % and 0.45 ± 0.39 C-mol C-mol-1 at OLR of 1.5 gCOD l-1 day-1, respectively. The synthetic feed was replaced by dark fermented PMW efﬂuent rich in acetate, butyrate, propionate, and lactate at the accumulation stage resulting in a PHA content and yield of 58.57 ± 4.02 % and 0.46 ± 0.09 C-mol C-mol-1, respectively. The maximum speciﬁc PHA production rate max ) amounted to 0.29 ± 0.1 C-mol C-mol-1 X-1 h-1.(qPHA
Illumina MiSeq sequencing of bacterial 16S rRNA gene showed that Proteobacteria and Bacteroidetes increased from 37.4 to 77.6 % and from 2.49 to 17.66 % at enrich-ment and accumulation stages, respectively. Actinobacteria (15.44 %), Chloroﬂexi (8.15 %), Planctomycetes (7.46 %), and Acidobacteria (6.0 %) were detected at the enrichment SBRs.
