Article
This work investigated degradation (measured by qPCR) and biological deactivation (measured by culture-based natural transformation) of extra- and intracellular antibiotic resistance genes (eARGs and iARGs) by free available chlorine (FAC), NH2Cl, O3, ClO2, and UV light (254 nm), and of eARGs by •OH, using a chromosomal ARG ( blt) of multidrug-resi...
Article
Disinfection processes in drinking water and wastewater treatment facilities may be an important barrier for combating antibiotic resistance from antibiotic resistant bacteria (ARB) and extracellular/intracellular antibiotic resistant genes (ARGs). However, conventional water and wastewater treatment plants are designed to minimize the disseminatio...

... This meant that the rate of the reaction increases by the square of the increased concentration of the SARS-CoV-2 RNA in the wastewater. Second-order kinetic was utilized to determine the degradation rate of bacterial antibiotic resistance genes (ARGs) during the exposure to free chlorine, monochloramine, chlorine dioxide, ozone, ultraviolet light, and hydroxyl radical (He et al., 2019). The calculated half-lives were compared to the results from 24 h (Fig. 8). ...
