By R. Amils,A. Ballester

the most important topic of the foreign Biohydrometallurgy Symposium IBS-99 'Biohydrometallurgy and the surroundings towards the mining of the twenty first Century', held in El Escorial (Spain) from 20-23 June 1999, is biohydrometallurgy and the surroundings because it is anticipated that during the arrival century biotechnology will make its maximum contribution during this region. From the papers in those volumes it truly is transparent that environmental concerns are already of significant curiosity to the biohydrometallurgical neighborhood.
Although all of the classical biohydrometallurgical themes - e.g. bioleaching, microbiology, molecular biology, biosorption, bioremediation - are addressed, the continuing emphasis is at the environmentally pleasant elements of the biotechnologies used.
Given the interdisciplinary nature of the sphere, biologists, hydrometallurgists, geologists, chemists, physicists and engineers may be attracted to this choice of papers which debate the longer term traits in biohydrometallurgy.
