Title

Effect of antibiotics and chemical disinfectants on anaerobic sequencing batch reactor treatment of swine waste

Abstract

"The overall goal of this research is to better understand the effect of antimicrobial agents used in the swine farms on the performance of anaerobic sequencing batch reactors. Three specific objectives for this research study are to: 1. Evaluate efficiency of high-rate anaerobic sequencing batch reactors (ASBRs) treating swine waste, 2. Determine the effect of commonly used antibiotics on the anaerobic treatment and performance of ASBRs, and 3. Determine the effects of commonly used chemical cleaners on the anaerobic treatment and performance of ASBRs. This work will also study the impacts on the treatment efficiency of a combination of antibiotics and overuse at various concentrations related to suggested use"--Introduction and Objectives, leaf 4.
