ANTIBIOTIC RESISTANCE IN
WASTEWATER TREATMENT PLANTS

We want to help wastewater treatment plants reach their ambitious wastewater treatment goals and protect aquatic environments

Wastewater treatment plants (WWTPs) collect antibiotic residues, antibiotic resistant bacteria and antibiotic resistance genes, making WWTPs a perfect location for the development and dissemination of antibiotic resistance through gene transfer events. Most WWTPs are not designed to remove antibiotic resistant bacteria or antibiotic resistance genes from wastewater, which means that these bacteria and genes get released into aquatic environments. These polluted aquatic environments may then pose a risk to human and animal health.
