The use of biological materials for removing metals and, possibly, recovering them from contaminated wastewaters has emerged as a potential alternative method to conventional treatment techniques. The ability of microorganisms to separate metal ions is a well-known phenomenon. Various experimental data are presented for different metals and biomass types, and are reviewed and critically commented in comparison with the literature. Dead biomass is usually obtained from fermentation wastes or by-products. Focus of this paper constitutes, among others, the kinetics of the biosorption process, being still quite ambiguous. Bioaccumulation of metals is also discussed in comparison with biosorption, the latter is more effective
