Acid mine drainage in-situ bioremediation has in the last decades drawn the attention in the field of environmental biotechnology. The most recent treatment technique are the permeable reactive barriers using sulphate-reducing bacteria. This view describes the basis of many of the current approaches to use sulphate-reducing bacteria in acid mine drainage treatment, from laboratory to full-scale realisations, and the limitations encountered when applied to full scale applications.
