Eliminating pharmaceuticals from contaminated waters via novel bioremediation approaches

Pharmaceuticals have an incredible ability to save lives and to improve the quality of life. However, their discharge has become a threat to aquatic and terrestrial life (e.g., antibiotic resistance, endocrine disruption) and they remain a challenge to most water treatment approaches. Read more

Investigating the role of the biofilm in waste water treatment plants as a reservoir for antimicrobial resistance

Ref. SHLS20023 Spencer. Background. By 2050, 10 million premature deaths could occur annually as the result of antimicrobial resistance (AMR). An important route of AMR into the environment is via the sewerage network where key control points are the wastewater treatment plants (WWTPs). Read more
