Removal of antibiotic resistant bacteria and antibiotic resistance genes in wastewater effluent by UV-activated persulfate.
J Hazard Mater. 2020 04 15; 388:122070.JH

Abstract

The emerging antibiotic resistant bacteria (ARB) and antibiotic resistance genes (ARGs) are increasingly appreciated to be as important as microbial contaminants. This paper focused on UV-activated persulfate (UV/PS), an advanced oxidation process, in removing ARB and ARGs from secondary wastewater effluent. Results showed that the inactivation efficiency of macrolides-resistant bacteria (MRB), sulfonamides-resistant bacteria (SRB), tetracyclines-resistant bacteria (TRB) and quinolones-resistant bacteria (QRB) by UV/PS reached 96.6 %, 94.7 %, 98.0 % and 99.9 % in 10 min, respectively. UV/PS also showed significant removal efficiency on ARGs. The reduction of total ARGs reached 3.84 orders of magnitude in UV/PS which is more than that in UV by 0.56 log. Particularly, the removal of mobile genetic elements (MGE) which might favor the horizontal gene transfer of ARGs among different microbial achieved 76.09 % by UV/PS. High-throughput sequencing revealed that UV/PS changed the microbial community. The proportions of Proteobacteria and Actinobacteria that pose human health risks were 4.25 % and 1.6 % less than UV, respectively. Co-occurrence analyzes indicated that ARGs were differentially contributed by bacterial taxa. In UV/PS system, hydroxyl radical and sulfate radical contributed to the removal of bacteria and ARGs. Our study provided a new method of UV/PS to remove ARGs and ARB for wastewater treatment.
