    Phosphorus-induced Biomineralization of Heavy metals by Microalgae Isolated from Pb-Zn Mine Tailings

    Abstract:

    Heavy metals pollution caused by mining activities are a worldwide environment issue. Reverse the metal minerals from metal ions through biological mineralization is a promising strategy for remediation, in which phosphorus-induced microbial heavy metals immobilization exhibits great potential. Our research team are engaging in isolating high metal-tolerance microalgae and present insights to use high-phosphorus culture modified microalgae for heavy metals, such as cadmium and lead biomineralization.

    Bio:

    Ling Xia is a visiting scholar in Jean-François Gaillard Lab of the Chemical and Biological Engineering Department at Northwestern University since January 2020. She is an associate professor in Wuhan University of Technology. She received her B.S. degree (2009) in Wuhan University of Technology, and got her M.S. (2011) and pH.D degree (2014) in Institute of Hydrobiology, Chinese Academy of Sciences. Her research interests are interactions between microbials and minerals, heavy metal geobiochemistry and microalgal environmental technology, etc.
