Special Issue "Biosorption and Biomineralization in Metal Removal"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 20 March 2020.
Biosorption is a process that utilizes biological materials as adsorbents, and this method has been studied by several researchers as an alternative technique to conventional methods for heavy metal removal from wastewater. On the other hand, biomineralization is the process by which living forms influence the precipitation of mineral materials. The process creates heterogeneous accumulations, composites composed of biologic (or organic) and inorganic compounds, with nonhomogeneous distributions that reflect the environment in which they form. Biosorption and biomineralizaton of some metals are often occurred in the metal removal process using microorganisms. This Special Issue aims to publish papers with appropriate examples that confirm the important role of the metal removal by biosorption and biomineralization in several types of metal ions from the aqueous system. Papers providing experimental data to evaluate the metal removal by biosorption and biomineralization are also welcome.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All papers will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Minerals is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 1600 CHF (Swiss Francs).
