Biohydrometallurgy: eco
-friendly technologies for
sustainable development
The IBS is an international
symposium on biohydrometallurgy,
held biannually since 1977, and the
IBS 2015 will be the first time that
this conference is held in Indonesia.

Application of biohydrometallurgy
in the mining industry was
highlighted by Scientific American
as one of ”10 World Changing
Research over many years has
shown that biohydrometallurgy,
which uses biological processes to
extract and recover metals, is
regarded as an eco -f riendly
biotechnology for producing precious
and base metals, and is considered
likely by many scientists to become
more extensive in application in
future years. Moreover as metal ore
grades continue to decline and the
need to less accessible ore bodies,
to reprocess wastes and to recycle
metals from electronic and other
materials becomes more
Also, using biohydrometallurgical
processes to remediate mine waters
(acid mine drainage etc.) is seen as
an important area of development
IBS 2015 is an international forum for
exchange, discussion and
communication between experts,
academics, students, researchers,
practitioners, government institutions
and professionals from industries in
order to:
(1) facilitate and encourage the
exchange of recent
developments, innovations,
technical and commercial
challenges of implementing
biohydrometallurgy in a
technology as well as future
biohydrometallurgy for both
production and metals
remediation technologies, and
(2) to promote intercommunion and
international collaboration
between participants in the field
of biohydrometallurgy and related

Mine Wastes
 Bioflotation and Biobeneficiation
 Biosorption and
 Microbial Corrosion
