Special Issue "Microorganisms for Environmental and Industrial Applications"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (20 September 2017)
Dr. Anna H. Kaksonen
Microorganisms play a key role in the biogeochemical cycling of various elements, and can therefore be used for various environmental and industrial applications. Examples of microbially catalysed processes are biodegradation, bioleaching, bioprecipitation, biooxidation, bioreduction, bioaccumulation and bioflotation. These can be used for degrading and removing contaminants from water, soil and air, extracting value from low grade resources and waste streams, and generating value added products, such as energy, nanomaterials and chemicals. Microorganisms utilised in environmental and industrial applications include a range of bacteria, archaea and eukaryotes such as fungi and microalgae. For this Special Issue of Microorganisms, we invite you to send contributions concerning any aspects relating to microorganisms utilised in environmental and industrial applications, including but not limited to ecology, diversity, physiology, detection methods and processes.
