The present study evaluates the ability of Acidithiobacillus thiooxidans DSM 26636 to grow and leach metals from industrial wastes (IW) containing245 differentModeladometalde la compositions,biodegradacióncodeden biorreactoresas hidrocarburosFor this purpose,totales delbiolixiviationpetróleo was assessed during 21 days at 30°C and 150 rpm, with 1% (w/v) of IW pulp density. Microbial growth was evaluated periodically intemperizados en suelos y sedimentos by measuring sulfate production; pH and sulfuric acid concentration were also monitored, and metal bioleaching was evaluated by ICP-OES.
