Summary:Passive methods to control acid drainage and metals make use of natural chemical and biological processes that diminish metal concentrations and remove acidity. These systems are moved by solar energy and its kinetics depends on metabolic activity of various living organisms and chemical and physical reactions. Therefore, wetlands provide effectiveness and reduced operating and maintenance costs to control acid drainage and metals.
