23rd Inter. Biohyrometallurgy Symposium

23rd Inter. Biohyrometallurgy Symposium

20 - 20 October 2019

Welcome to IBS 2019

Dear colleagues and friends,

The International Biohydrometallurgy Symposium (IBS) is the biannual global conference on biohydrometallurgy, bioremediation, and the related subjects. These sciences and technologies have a high potential to establish environmentally-favorable processes in mining industries for the recovery of base/precious metals from primary/secondary resources including urban mines, and for the remediation of exploited mining sites. Any other industries dealing with metals and metalloids can also benefit from advances in biohydrometallurgy.
