This book presents a collection of the most up-to-date research of the most important topics in metal corrosion caused by microorganisms and the use of microorganisms in the extraction of metals from their ores. These two areas of biotechnology have great economic impact and have undergone intense research activity in recent years. The book is aimed at research workers in biotechnology, microbiology, metallurgy and engineering.
"Overall, I recommend this book to microbiologists who are interested in knowing more about the physical and chemical aspects of metal bioextraction and biocorrosion." L.G. Leduc, CSM Newsletter
