Abstract [en]

The influence of selected sulphonamides such as sulphacetamide (SCM) and ptoluenesulphonamide(p-TSA) on the Anammox process was investigated. The short-term (14-hour) and long-term (90-day) exposure of mixed Anammox culture to SCM and p-TSA wasapplied. The aim of long-term exposure study (conducted in continuous-flow bioreactors) was toinvestigate a long-term influence of sulphonamides on Anammox process and on adaptation ofAnammox culture to sulphonamides. The batch test performances resulted in the N-removal ratefor non-acclimated and acclimated Anammox culture. The experiments were carried out atsulphonamides concentration of: 10, 20, 40, 80, 100 and 1000 mg/dm3. The results confirmed thatboth sulphonamides inhibit the Anammox process, however, the effect is more evident in the caseof SCM. The higher the sulphonamides concentration, the stronger inhibition of microorganisms’activity was observed.
