    1. indicate that even low concentrations of just a single type of antibiotic leads to resistance to multiple classes of antibiotics.

      I doubt this claim, do you mean they are correlated?

    1. suggesting that STPs have become an important source of contamination for their receiving rivers

      Read these references: Saying antibiotic resistance is proliferating in wastewater treatment plants

    2. Additionally, the concentrations of antibiotics and the abundance of ARGs might increase after the sewage treatment process.

      Wow, that is a strong and counter-intuitive claim. Is this rigorously determined?

    1. wastewater treatment plants are hotspots for the release of antibiotics, and transmission of diverse antibiotic resistance bacteria (ARB) as well as ARGs into various environments

      That's a strong claim, not backed by strong evidence

    2. Recent findings have indicated that most ARGs could not be efficiently removed by traditional anaerobic digestion treatment
    1. Many QS-controlled genes relate to biofilm formation and function and may be important for some water and wastewater treatment biofilms
    2. Many QS-controlled genes relate to biofilm formation and function and may be important for some water and wastewater treatment biofilms
    1. it become possible to engineer these microbial structures to allow bacteria to form a stable granular sludge instead of flocculent sludge

    1. endogenous AHL-based QS and QQ are existing and coexisting in biological wastewater treatments; the leading role for AHL-based QS or QQ phenomenon in biological wastewater treatments can be determined by bacterial AHL concentration.

    1. Main aim of industrial wastewater treatment is to lower the number of solids such as waste product, organic materials, and sand from industrial wastewater. This wastewater treatment can lead to water sustainability and be a roadway of preventing the scarcity of potable water in India. For more details read article.
