The inhibition of tetracycline on anaerobic digestion of synthetic swine wastewater was examined with a semi-continuous operation for 103 days at a dosage ranging 2-8 mg/L. COD concentrations, VFA compositions in effluents and methane production were measured. The negative effects of tetracycline on the four individual steps of anaerobic digestion and its toxicity on anaerobic microorganisms were also evaluated. Read More
