Abstract
Exposed to air and water, the oxidation of sulfide minerals (e.g. pyrite) in coal mine waste can result in serious environmental problems such as acid mine drainage (AMD). Thiobacillus ferrooxidans is generally regarded as the principal iron-oxidizing bacteria involved in the process of sulfide oxidation. The bactericide technology to inhibit the activity of Thiobacillus ferroxidans can effectively prevent AMD occurence. In the present study, Thiobacillus ferrooxidans was isolated from acidic coal mine waste and its physiological characteristics were studied. Anionic surfactant (sodium dodecyl sulfate, 50 mg/L) was confirmed as an effective bactericide to inhibit the activity of Thiobacillus ferroxidans.
