New Book- Microbiology for Minerals, Metals, Materials and the Environment



Microbiology for Minerals, Metals, Materials and the Environment by Abhilash, B.D. Pandey and K.A. Natarajan links chemical, metallurgical, and other metal inherent systems with microbes, and analyzes the interdependence between them.
Specifically intended to underscore the importance of microbes in environmental remediation in the mining industries, this text offers a basic and conceptual understanding of the role of microbes, and provides an extensive exploration of microbiology and metals.
Each chapter is written by experts from research, industry and academia. The authors expand on the whole scale of microbiology applications relevant to minerals, metal, material, and environment. They elicit the applications of microbes for metal extraction (including mechanisms and methods) from primary ores/minerals and mining wastes, biomining and related concepts of microbial diversity and various operations, and molecular biology of microbes involved in such systems (extremophiles). They also address in detail biohydrometallurgy, biomineralisation, bioleaching, biobeneficiation, biosynthesis, and bioremediation and other related areas.
The book is vailable from CRC Press.
