Heavy metal accumulation by bacteria and other microorganisms

Heavy metal accumulation by bacteria and other microorganisms

Experientia 46(8): 834-840

Bacteria, and other microorganisms, exhibit a number of metabolism-dependent and -independent processes for the uptake and accumulation of heavy metals and radionuclides. The removal of such harmful substances from effluents and waste waters by microbe-based technologies may provide an alternative or additional means of metal/radionuclide recovery for economic reasons and/or environmental protection.
