Rare Earth Element Biomining from the Great Salt Lake Brine Using Engineered E. Coli

This data describes rare earth element adsorption onto E. coli cells engineered to express a lanthanide binding tag (LBT). We used a Great Salt Lake synthetic solution as the background matrix with Tb added to 1-10,000 ppb, concentrations much lower than the competing ions present. Our results showed that Tb binds to LBT, even in the presence of high concentrations of competing metals. We also tested REE adsorption at elevated temperatures (up to 100 degrees Celsius), and observed that Tb adsorption increases with temperature of to 70 degrees Celsius, and then remains constant until 100 degrees Celsius. Data analyses were performed using an ICP-MS at UCSC.
