Metals

Metals play an important (economic) role in our society. Although not immediately obvious, microbiological processes can be important in relation to metal winning, recovery, or metal loss. They can be gained from metalbearing ores or rocks with the help of micro-organisms in a process called bioleaching, which can be exploited in the mining industry. On the other hand, several micro-organisms are able to enhance electrochemical reactions with metals and thereby increase the unwanted loss of metals due to microbially induced corrosion. Micro-organisms use the different oxidation states of metal compounds to perform redox reactions from which they gain energy by using specific enzymes. Microbial analyses are used to provide insight into specific metal related bioconversions for your case.
