Appliion Of Bacterial Iron Reduction For The Removal Of Iron Impurities From

Two series of bacterial iron-reduction experiments have shown that all tested Shewanella sp. bacterial strains were able to leach iron impurities from industrial kaolins and that among the tested strains, S. putrefaciens CIP8040 is the most efficient in terms of both extent of Fe removal and improvement in the colour properties of the kaolin.
