Microorganisms can be used to remove toxic heavy metals from liquid industrial wastes. In addition to the chemical toxicity of many of the latter, the production of long-lived nuclides from nuclear power programmes has introduced additional radiotoxicological hazards. Associated problems of the presence of contaminating, non-metal co-pollutants and the presentation of dilute, high-volume wastes have received little attention. Traditional biotechnological waste treatments have relied either on… CONTINUE READING
