Review Paper


The global consumption of manganese is rising due to its growing industrial requirement while the natural reserves of manganese are diminishing at an alarming rate. Consequently, recovery of manganese from metal containing wastes has become highly crucial. Bioleaching of metal from wastes using microbes provides an adequate advantage over the traditional method of recovery. A molecular level understanding of microbial catalyzed manganese recovery is essential for the exploitation of novel microorganisms for similar applications. In current scenario, the application of bioleaching concentrates on cost effective and eco-friendly recovery of precious metals from mining and industrial wastes. This review encompasses the modern improvements in biomining, highlights the comprehensive factors that emphasize the selection of manganese recovery technique, shed insights into spectacular progress in developing molecular based technologies and also identifies the applicability of different models in metal bioremediation which will not only aid in pollution abatement but also in the prevention of occupational health disorder.
