Dissolution of uranium from silicate-apatite ore by Acidithiobacillus ferrooxidans
Bioleaching of a low-grade Indian silicate-apatite uranium ore containing 0.024% U3O8 and 10.6% iron with minor amounts of base metals has been reported. The studies involved extraction of uraniumExpand
Column Bioleaching of a Low-Grade Silicate Ore of Uranium
The bioleaching of a low-grade Indian uraninite ore (triuranium octoxide, U3O8: 0.024%), containing ferro-silicate and magnetite as the major phases, and hematite and pyrite in minor amounts, hasExpand
Bacterial leaching kinetics for copper dissolution from a lowgrade Indian chalcopyrite ore
Bio-leaching of copper (0.3%) from a low grade Indian chalcopyrite ore of Malanjkhand copper mines, using a native mesophilic isolate predominantly Acidithiobacillus ferrooxidans (A.ferrooxidans), isExpand
Abstract Meeting the feed supply of uranium fuel in the present and planned nuclear reactors calls for huge demand of uranium, which at the current rate of production, shows a mismatch. TheExpand
Final Project Completion Report For CORE-0020 Project (under CSIR's Tenth Five Year Plan: 2002-2007)
The continued depletion of high grade ore and growing awareness of environmental problems associated with traditional methods have led researchers to explore alternate, efficient and less pollutingExpand
Bioremoval of Chromium (III) from Model Tanning Effluent by Novel Microbial Isolate
Tanneries have always been under the scanner of Pollution Control Boards with respect to the amount of effluents and solid wastes that they generate. Wastewater from tanneries usually contains highExpand
Efficacy of Bacterial Adaptation on Copper Biodissolution from a Low Grade Chalcopyrite Ore by A. ferrooxidans
A low-grade ore containing ~0.3% Cu, remains unutilized for want of a viable process at Malanjkhand Copper Project in which copper is present as chalcopyrite. Expand
Biological remediation of trivalent chromium from effluents
Out of the industrial waste streams/effluents entering in the aquatic system containing metallic species, tanneries release high amounts of chromium, an anthropogenic pollutant because of use ofExpand
Bio-Hydrometallurgy for Extraction of Nonferrous Metals
The advent of microbial leaching process has opened scope for supplementing the availability of different non-ferrous metals globally, and has made the exploitation of poor grade and discardedExpand
Video on Operational COlumn Bioleaching of Uranium at 100kg scale at UCIL premises
This Project was initiated under CSIR's Tenth Five Year Plan on Bioleaching of low grade metal reserves, and NML initiated this activity on uranium bioleaching from bench scale to 2ton level. ThisExpand
