- The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) statements of need call for ''biological and physical chemical parameters for effective decontamination of metal surfaces using environmentally benign aqueous-based biopolymer solutions and microbial processes with potential for decontaminating corroding metal surfaces.'' Improved understanding of the fundamental processes of microbial reductive dissolution of iron oxide scale on corroding carbon steel will support assessment and potential application of an environmentally benign and cost-effective strategy for in situ decontamination of structural metal surfaces and piping. This research is designed 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.
