Paper Title:
Isolation of Novel Iron-Oxidizing Bacteria from an Acid Mine Water Treatment Plant
  Abstract

The capacity of a microbiological mine water treatment plant may to be enhanced by understanding the microbiological processes. Therefore different samples from the pilot plant were analyzed by culture-independent and cultivation methods. Dominant bacteria could be isolated on overlay plates or enriched in gradient cultures. To immobilize biomass in the pilot plant, various carrier materials were tested. Sessil, the material currently used in the pilot plant, was the most favored and appropriate material.
