Graphical Abstract Figure.

Sulphide is the end product of biological sulphate reduction. Novel bioprocesses that use it to precipitate and recover heavy metals from groundwater, wastewaters and process water have been developed in the last two decades. Bioprocess control combining mathematical modelling with process monitoring is instrumental for the further optimisation of these sulphate reduction based bioreactor systems.

Keywords: bioreactor; sulphate-reducing bacteria; wastewater; modelling; sensor; control
