The low carrying capacity of the peat soil makes a consideration to accelerate peatland decomposition through the addition of endogenous lignocellulolytic bacteria. These bacteria can use nutrients found in the peat soil and secrete enzymes to accelerate peat decomposition. In this study, endogenous lignocellulolytic bacteria from Palangkaraya peat soil, Kalimantan was used in lab scale decomposition experiments. These bacteria were added into the peat soil and incubated for six weeks. Analysis of peat fiber decomposition was performed weekly and at the end of the incubation period, bacteria colony was counted using total plate count method. The results showed that all bacteria can decomposed peat soil with an average value of 86%. The number of bacterial colonies at the end of incubation ranges from 3.0 × 10 3 to 6.7 × 10 4 CFU/ml. This study can be used as a preliminary study of peat soil decomposition that subsequently can be developed through analyzing several factors to stabilize peats oil area.
