Although the entire classical biohydrometallurgical themes - e.g. bioleaching, microbiology, molecular biology, biosorption, bioremediation - are addressed, the ongoing emphasis is at the environmentally pleasant elements of the biotechnologies used.
Given the interdisciplinary nature of the sector, biologists, hydrometallurgists, geologists, chemists, physicists and engineers could be attracted to this selection of papers which debate the longer term tendencies in biohydrometallurgy.
