Abstract:
Bioleaching of selected metals, viz. Cu, Zn, Pb, Ni from e-waste in the form of high grade waste printed circuit board (PCB) of computer is comparatively assessed using pure culture ofAcidithiobacillus ferrooxidans with and without the supplementation of lemon juice containing 0.2 M citric acid as active constituent and natural tet-radentate chelating agent to simulate hybrid and conventional conditions, respectively. Metal leaching from the comminuted PCB is observed to vary greatly under the conventional and hybrid bioleaching conditions showing better solubilization in the hybrid approach due to the chelating effect of citric acid. At a pulp density of 7.5 g/Land the comminution fines in the size range of 0.075–1 mm, the maximum leaching of 94% Cu, 92% Zn, 64% Pband 81% Ni are observed at 18 days of hybrid bioleaching with an asymptotic trend from 12 days onward. Measurement of the exopolymeric substances (EPS) production during bioleaching indicates a profound role in the leaching of metals. Extraction through chemical precipitation yields more than 99% of the selected metals from bioleached liquor. Hybrid bioleaching technique followed by chemical precipitation can be deliberated as a complete solution for metal recycling for resource recovery from e-waste

THE VISION
THE MISSION
ABOUT I-STEM
It has always been the basic tenet of the Government of India, in generously funding R&D efforts at academic institutions over the years, that facilities established through such support be made available to those needing them and qualified to make use of them for their own research work

However, this was never easy or straightforward for, among other reasons, there was no ready source of information of what facility was available and where. Thanks to the Web, it is much easier today to have a national and regional “inventory of resources”, so as to match users with the resources they need, and to do all this in an efficient and transparent manner.

This can lead to a leap in R&D productivity and greatly enhance the effectiveness of public investment. This is the motivation behind I-STEM.
