Antibiotic Degradation During Anaerobic Digestion and Effects of Antibiotics on Biogas Production


Purpose 

The purpose of this research was to investigate the degradation of four animal husbandry antibiotics during anaerobic digestion (AD) and study biogas inhibition from the antibiotics. This study was designed to fill information gaps related to AD inhibition by different antibiotic classes in diluted manures received by anaerobic digesters, particularly cattle manure, and the need to more thoroughly investigate antibiotic degradation products from the AD process.…
