Abstract
The U.S. Bureau of Mines has developed porous polymeric beads containing immobilized biological materials such as sphagnum peat moss for extracting metal contaminants from wastewaters. The beads, designated as bio-fix beads, have distinct advantages over traditional methods. In laboratory and field tests, the beads have removed toxic metals such as cadmium, lead, and copper from nearly 100 wastewaters. These include acid mine drainage waters from active and abandoned mining operations, metallurgical and chemical industry wastewaters, and contaminated groundwaters.
