Özet

The study focused on acute inhibition mechanism and effect of sulfamethoxazole (SMX) and tetracycline (TET) on the carboxylic acid utilization and the methanogenic activity. Duplicate batch reactors were operated in a range of 1-1000 mg/L for each antibiotic. Short chain fatty acid removal was determined in terms of soluble Chemical Oxygen Demand (COD) and specific fatty acid measurements together with methane generation. Additionally, seed sludge was characterized by Fluorescent in situ Hybridization (FISH).
