Abstract Scope Biotechnological processes are important alternatives for water recycling in hydrometallury and mineral processing and thus this paper is focused on two biotechnologies: (i) sulfate reduction and (ii) manganese bioremediation. While high sulfate concentrations are related to hydrometallurgical operations, manganese is one of the most difficult metals to remove from wastewaters. It is demonstrated herein that a bacterial consortium enriched from a mine water removed 99.7% Mn(II) from 50mg/L Mn solution. Molecular studies revealed Stenotrophomonas, Bacillus and Lysinibacillus genera in the sample. Cell metabolism resulted in a pH increase which catalyzed chemical Mn(II). Subsequently, sulfate reduction with sulfate reducing bacteria (SRB) was addressed. A fluidized bed reactor (FBR), containing immobilized biomass enabled a high bacterial population (> 10E9 cells/mL) in the bioreactor and thus a large sulfate reduction efficiency (97%) for a specific sulfate reducing rate (4.8 gSO4-2.gVSS-1.d-1). Vale and the funding agencies FINEP, CAPES, CNPQ, FAPEMIG are acknowledged.
