- ... The removal of antibiotics in biological wastewater treatment plants (WWTPs) has attracted an ever-increasing interest. Extracellular polymeric substances (EPS) play a crucial role in antibiotics’ bio-adsorption using activated sludge, but the interaction mechanism between antibiotics and EPS remains unclear. In this study, the thermodynamics of interactions between EPS and antibiotics (acetaminop ...
