Uremediate soil and water remediation of Uranium - Environmental - Site Remediation
Please see files for more information. The following mechanisms of direct bacteria-uranium interactions are described: i) oxidation of U(IV) to U(VI) resulting in solubilization; ii) bioaccumulation, which includes processes of bio-sorption by cell surface iii) reduction of U(VI) to insoluble U(IV); polymers and/or uptake inside the cells. iv) The U(VI) accumulated both on the bacterial surfaces or inside the cells as well as biologically reduced U(IV) precipitates can initiate bio-mineralization processes, which result in immobilization of additional amounts of uranium. v) Dose rate: 300 gm per Ton Biomass (for soil treatment). vi) Dose rate: 100 gm per KL (for water treatment).
