Resumen:
Una universidad ucraniana ha desarrollado un método biotecnológico de extracción de metales raros y pesados de residuos de origen tecnológico mediante la activación de un proceso biológico de microorganismos. Este método permite reducir residuos y obtener metales raros (incluyendo germanio y galio) a partir de materias primas, y es efectivo, ecológico, seguro y rentable. Además se caracteriza por el consumo bajo de energía y costes bajos de personal. Se buscan socios de las industrias de carbón y energía con el fin de establecer acuerdos de cooperación técnica e investigación.

Tittle:
The biotechnological method of extraction of rare and heavy metals from the waste products of coal industry and energetics
Summary:
University (Ukraine) offers a biotechnological method of extraction of rare, colored and heavy metals from the technogenic waste products by activation of biological process of microorganisms. This method provides the liquidation of waste products and receiving the rare-raw materials and is effective, ecological safe and economically profitable. The University is looking for partners among organizations of coal industry and energetics for research and technical cooperation.
Description:
The biotechnological method of leaching of rare and heavy metals from technogenic wastes solves the ecological problems which connected with waste accumulation which is formed during of coal beneficiation and its combustion.
At the same time this method allows to get sources of raw materials for production of rare metals including germanium and gallium. The method is based on using and activation of microorganisms which are formed in wastes. This activation is accompanied with breaking down the crystalline grating of products and extraction of rare and heavy metals from them.
The University has the essential experience, the scientific staff and the new equipment for extracting, researching and activation of associations and pure cultures of microorganisms from wastes; creation the effective bacterial preparation on their bases; detecting and elaboration the optimal technological conditions of process for each type of waste according to type of coal deposits and way of coal combustion. As a result the valuable rare metal concentrate with 3-5% germanium and/or gallium is obtained and wastes are neutralized with below of the maximum allowable concentration (MAC) for content of heavy metals in soils.
The method does not require expensive equipment, scarce reagents and is characterized by low energy consumption and low staff costs. This method is highly profitable and rapidly pays off. The amount of money which is necessary for the implementation of industrial development depends on the volume of the planned output and is about $ 18.0-20.0 per 1 ton of waste processing.
The university is interested in investors, organizations of coal industry and energetics from EU and other countries with the aim of research and technical cooperation for the method promotion, creating of production capacity, marketing services etc.
Advantages and Innovations:
The main advantages of the method are:
- simplicity of the method - it does not require expensive equipment,
- the method is realized at normal temperature and pressure without using of strong acids and formation of toxic intermediate products that makes it environmentally friendly;
- this method is aimed on the obtaining of additional rare metals and ensures that waste lost their negative effect on the environment and humans;
- this method is highly profitable, quickly pays for itself and provides a growing demand on the market in combination with the lack of internal competitors.
