Booknews
Presents the scientific basis for using microbial biomass to remove metals from solution, focusing on microbial leaching and explaining how valuable metal can be recovered from ores--or interfering mineral constituents removed from ores or fossil fuels. Reports on the status of both currently and potentially available microbial technology and examines some scientific ground rules by which the microorganisms used in these technologies might improve through genetic engineering.
