Abstract
Previous studies in the Cofrentes Nuclear Power Plant showed that microorganisms from radioactive water are able to form biofilms on metallic materials submerged in the water and that these biofilms could retain radionuclides. In the present study a bioremediation process to decontaminate the water was designed and the microorganisms forming the biofilms were identified using culture-independent techniques. Additionally, we assessed that the bioremediation process could be economically profitable.
