Title: Microbially Promoted Solubilization of Steel Corrosion Products and Fate of Associated Actinides

Abstract

The research is designed to evaluate the impact of metal-reducing bacteria on the release of radionuclides, specifically uranium and plutonium, from iron hydroxide minerals formed on the surfaces of corroding mild and stainless steels. The ultimate goal is to develop a safe and effective biological approach for decontaminating mild and stainless steels that were used in the production, transport, and storage of radioactive materials.
