A new manuscript by Jung, Kim, Inaba, Moutushi, Castaldi, West, and Banta describes the overexpression of a copper-binding protein, AcoP in A. ferrooxidans.   This enables the cells to bind and recover copper from waste materials, including bottom ash obtained from a waste-to-energy facility. The new results were published in ACS Environmental Science & Technology Engineering.
