Biofilms of selected bacteria strains were previously used on metal coupons as a protective layer against microbiologically influenced corrosion of metals. Unlike metal surfaces, concrete surfaces present a hostile environment for growing a protective biofilm. The main objective of this research was to investigate whether a beneficial biofilm can be successfully grown on mortar surfaces. Escherichia coli DH5α biofilm was grown on mortar surfaces for 8 days, and the structure and characteristics… CONTINUE READING
