Abstract: Abstract Four kinds of bioreactor were evaluated for thorium removal by fungal biomass. Static‐bed or stirred‐bed bioreactors did not give satisfactory thorium removal probably because of poor mixing. An air‐lift bioreactor removed approximately 90–95% of the thorium supplied over extended time periods and exhibited a well‐defined breakthrough point after biosorbent saturation. The air‐lift bioreactor promoted efficient circulation and effective contact between the thorium solution and the mycelial pellets. O…
