Abstract
Shallow beds of algae (algal meanders) have proved to be highly effective at removing heavy metals and organometallics from lead-zinc mine and mill wastes. A research program was initiated (1) to determine conditions under which algae were most effective at concentrating significant quantities of As, Cd, Cu, Hg, Ni, Pb, or Zn, and (2) to apply the meander technology to new types of wastewater-metal problems.
