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 tradi...
Article
A comprehensive study on fungus assisted bioleaching of manganese (Mn) was carried out to demonstrate Mn solubilization of collected low grade ore from mining deposits of Sanindipur, Odisha, India. A native fungal strain MSF 5 was isolated and identified as Aspergillus sp. by Inter Transcribed Spacer (ITS) sequencing. The identified strain revealed...
Article
The present investigation reports the isolation, molecular identification and screening of Mn solubilizing fungal strains from low grade Mn mine tailings. Six morphologically distinct Mn solubilizing fungal strains were isolated on MnO2 supplemented agar plates with Mn concentration of 0.1 % (w/v).The biochemical characterization of the isolated fu...

Biomining is defined as the technologies that utilize microbial community for the extraction of metals from its ore or wastes and facilitate a greener recovery. Extraction of manganese by biomining is now a thing of the present and not just a hypothesis, as it was few decades back. The severe industrial importance of manganese has led to augmented...
Article
Manganese (Mn) ranks twelfth among the most exuberant metal present in the earth's crust and finds its imperative application in the manufacturing steel, chemical, tannery, glass, and battery industries. Solubilisation of Mn can be performed by several bacterial strains which are useful in developing environmental friendly solutions for mining acti...

The requirement for manganese (Mn) has augmented extensively owing to the intense production of steel and the mounting paucity of natural deposits. The widespread mining, mineral processing, and further human activities have faced a severe consequence in the generation of massive quantity of manganese mining waste residues. The inappropriate superv...
Article
Full-text available
Manufacturing of manganese (Mn) compounds, their industrial applications as well as mining overburden, has generated a potential environmental pollutant. Occupational exposure to elevated levels of Mn occurs during mining, welding, smelting and other industrial anthropogenic sources. Chronic and acute exposure of this metal pollutant leads to adver...

Abstract: Manganese ore is considered as a crucial industrial element and is consumed both metallurgically and non-metallurgically. World Steel Association reported that the driving factor in ore industry is Mn whose production of steel competence has increased from 47.91 million tons (2000-01) to 88.40 million tons (2011-12). Due to rise in the co...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
India ranks 4th in the global production of Manganese (Mn) and boasts around 160 million tonnes of Mn ore reserve. It has been reported that the export of ferro alloys from India has increased from 0.42 million tonnes in 2008 to 1.08 million tonnes in 2013. This necessitates the development of novel techniques for Mn extraction from low grade ores....
