Overview of the sulfate-reducing bacteria demonstration project under the mine waste technology program

Mining Engineering, 1999, Vol. 51, No. 6, pp. 41-47
Canty, M.


ABSTRACT:

This paper presents the results of pilot-scale testing and the field demonstration project on the use of sulfate-reducing bacteria (SRB) to treat acid mine drainage. The testing was performed as part of the Mine Waste Technology Program (MWTP), which is being funded by the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). The project is jointly administered by the EPA and the US Department of Energy (DOE) at the Western Environmental Technology Office (WETO) through an Interagency Agreement. MSE Technology Applications Inc. is the principal contractor for the project. The purpose of the field demonstration is to evaluate the ability of SRB to treat and control metal-contaminated wastewater in situ. The field demonstration was performed at the Lilly/Orphan Boy Mine near Elliston, MT.
