Uranium Reoxidation in Previously Bioreduced Sediment by Dissolved Oxygen and Nitrate

Flow-through sediment column experiments examined the reoxidation of microbially reduced uranium with either oxygen or nitrate supplied as the oxidant. The uranium was reduced and immobilized via long-term (70 days) acetate biostimulation resulting in 62-92% removal efficiency of the 20 M influent u...
