Optimizing Disinfection to Prevent Spread of Antibiotic Resistance in Wastewater

Antibiotic-resistant bacteria, such as Staphylococcus aureus, abound in our wastewater effluents where they could be spreading the resistance gene to other (pathogenic) bacteria. Scientists have now begun to explore ways of preventing this via optimal disinfection processes | Photo courtesy: Prawny on Pixabay
