Bio-oxidation of ferrous iron at low temperature conditions in a packed bed column bioreactors
(Cape Peninsula University of Technology, 2016)
The oxidation of microbial ferrous iron is an important sub-process in the bioleaching process. Several studies focussing on microbial ferrous iron oxidation have been investigated and reported in various studies. These ...
The effect of initial pH on surface properties of ferric ion precipitates formed during microbial oxidation of ferrous ion by Leptospirillum ferriphilum in a CSTR
(Cape Peninsula University of Technology, 2017)
While bioleaching is a proven technology for the efficient recovery of base metals from sulphide minerals, its sustenance is dependent on the continuous availability of ferric ion, Fe3+, in soluble form, in the bioleach ...
