Will metal ever biodegrade?



  1. 0 Votes

    “Biodegrade” is not necessarily the right word, although some organisms such as bacteria can attack metals, and chemicals that result from biologic activity participate in chemical weathering of all things from rocks to man-made objects including metals.

    Metals will certainly degrade, some much faster than others. Consider rust, and other forms of oxidation, which together with mechanical effects result in the physical breakdown of pieces of metal.
