Biogeochemia uranu

Wanda Grzybowska, Alicja Godlewska-Lipowa



Uranium is an important product as an energetic material in nuclear power stations when traditional sources of energy keep running out. The paper presents the possible receipt of uranium from poor ores with application of biotechnology and use of microorganisms.
A particular attention is paid to mechanisms of bacterium leaching of uranium and to factors that influence the efficiency of this process and also, to tolerance of microorganisms to toxic metals. Processes of uranium biosorption from a sea water by algae, mushrooms and bacteria are also described.
