Microbiology for Minerals, Metals, Materials, and the Environment
There is a close interlink between metals, minerals, and materials with the different environmental microbes such as biomineralisation and biogenesis. These are confirmed to explain the role native microorganisms, transformation, in the occurrence and movement of metals, minerals, and materials across the earth’s crust and deep to the oceans
There are different aspects covered in this book such as bioleaching, bioremediation, biobeneficiation, biomineralisation, biohydrometallurgy, and biosynthesis. The basics and historical aspects of the above-mentioned and more topics are all clearly explained and illustrated in this book
The book also explains the application of microbes for metal extraction, importance, and their exploitation. It is very important to understand the linkage of microbiology with metals, minerals, and materials and the importance of bacteria in this field. The book contains a lot of information regarding microbiology that shouldn’t be missed.
