SELENIUM, URANIUM, AND NITRATE: TREATMENT OF TROUBLESOME CONTAMINANTS IN MINING WASTEWATERS - EBR CASE STUDIES
Opara, A., J. Adams, J. Fudyma, and J. Bowden.
Journal of American Society of Mining and Reclamation 7(2):19-34(2018)

This study presents three bench- and onsite pilot-scale case studies using electro-biochemical reactor (EBR) technology for Se, U, and NO3 bio-reduction and removal from mining wastewaters. The studies used different mining waters and each were contaminated with varying concentrations of Se, U, and NO3. The EBR technology treated the waters to <0.5-3.2 g/L Se, <0.1-0.8 g/L U, and <0.02-<2 mg/L NO3 -N.https://www.asmr.us/Portals/0/Documents/Journal/Volume-7-Issue-2/Opara-UT.pdf
