• Bio Hydrometallurgical Processing of Non Ferrous Metals

    Stirred tank reactor STR leaching of non ferrous metals from copper smelting slag was conducted using biogenic Fe3 solution containing H2SO4 The solution was initially obtained through biooxidation of FeS2 S by using a moderately thermophilic microbial culture such as Sulfobacillus thermosulfidooxidans at 45 C and was applied as lixiviant in STR leaching experiments.
