摘要:Biogenic ferrous sulfide nanoparticles (bio-FeS) as low-cost and green-synthesized nanomaterial are promising for heavy metals removal, but the need for complicated extraction, storage processes and the production of iron sludge still restrict their practical application. Here, a sustainable bio-hybrid consisting of bacterial cells and self-regenerable bio-FeS was developed to efficiently remove chromium (Cr(VI)). A dense layer of bio-FeS was self-assembled on the cell surface and in the periplasmic space of Shewanella oneidensis MR-1, endowing the bacterium with good Cr(VI) tolerance and unusual activity for bio-FeS-mediated Cr(VI) reduction. An artificial transmembrane electron channel was constituted by the bio-FeS to facilitate extracellular electron pumping, enabling efficient regeneration of extracellular bio-FeS for continuous Cr(VI) reduction. The bio-hybrid maintained high activity within three consecutive treatment-regeneration cycles for treating both simulated Cr(VI)-containing wastewater (50 mg/L) and real electroplating wastewater. Importantly, the bio-hybrid activity can be facilely and fully restored through bio-FeS re-synthesis or regeneration with replenished fresh bacteria. Overall, the bio-hybrid merges the self-regeneration ability of bacteria with high activity of bio-FeS nanoparticles, opening a promising new route for sustainable treatment of heavy metal- containing wastewater.
