Microbes and Coal Mines
Name: Rob M.
How are microbes being used in the
remidiation of mine workings and their polutants. I am particularly
interested in coal mining within the UK. But am after a general (world wide)use.
Bacteria are used to clean up chemical waste from
mining industry, but I don't know examples on coal
mines specifically. Some applications of bacteria in
waste management are collected in the file on Applied
Bacteriology in the Virtual Museum of Bacteria
(www.bacteriamuseum.org). Check out
