Abstract: The development of technologies based on the use of sulfate-reducing bacteria (SRB) to treat sulfate contaminated wastewaters has produced a cost-effective route to precipitate metals. In this work the effects of cadmium and manganese in the SRB growth rates were assessed. It was observed that duplication time is 50 h in the presence of cadmium and 6 h in the presence of manganese, thus showing that the SRB growth rate was more affected by the presence of cadmium. A low sulfate reduction (maximum 25%) occurred which was sufficient for metal precipitation. The results are discussed considering their implications for metal precipitation in acid mining drainage.
