    Abstract

    A new laboratory system for studying the microbiological corrosion of decommissioning waste was designed and developed during this project. The material in this part of the laboratory studies was carbon steel (AISI/SAE 1005/UNS G10050). In order to estimate the corrosive effects of microbial activity both biotic and abiotic (containing the biocides methylisothiazolinone and glutaraldehyde) mesocosms were prepared. To enhance the effects of sulfate reducing bacteria an enrichment of these bacteria isolated from the native drill hole water from the repository site was inoculated in to the biotic mesocosms. Microbiological corrosion was studied using new electrochemical technologies, such as multi-electrode arrays sensors, and molecular biology methods in the laboratory.
