Abstract

Magnetotactic bacteria (MTB) offer a unique approach to metal accumulation and separation from water systems. This paper proposes an integrated separator design, for the production of MTB, the metal uptake phase and their subsequent separation. Applied magnetic fields are used to orientate the bacteria, so that they swim in a direction resulting in their removal.
