Thiobacillus ferrooxidans selection in continuous culture



Thiobacillus ferrooxidans selection in continuous culture



Fundamental and applied biohydrometallurgy Proceedings of the sixth international symposium on biohydrometallurgy Vancouver, BC, Canada, August 21-24, 1985: 395-401



The oxidation of ferrous ions by T. ferrooxidans produces ferric ions which partially precipitate as various complex iron oxides. At pH < 2.2, the concn of soluble ferric ions increases but the growth rate and oxidative efficiency of T. ferrooxidans decreases. In order to select strs able to grow and retain high oxidative activity (at pH < 2.2), a chemostat, in which progressive lowering of pH occurs, was used.
