The effect of particulate-induced hydrodynamic stress on the bioleaching of chalcopyrite by a Sulfolobus sp.

Includes bibliographical references. === In slurry reactors, hydrodynamic stress originates primarily from interactions between particles and cells in the reactor. This form of stress has been shown to negatively affect the process performance. The present study centres on slurry reactors utilised i...
