The datasets shows the amount of antibiotic resistant bacteria and genes in the influent and effluent of large scale waste water treatment plants. The removal efficiency was correlated to the conventional treatment methods currently used in wastewater treatment plants such as chlorination, ultraviolet irradiation and ozone. Cold atmospheric plasma was suggested as an alternative disinfection step and was used to treat carbapenem resistant Acinetobacter baumannii and pseudomonas aeruginosa. The efficiency of cold atmospheric plasma was correlated to the ph, conductivity of the treated solutions and the byproducts of the plasma. Instruments used for treatment can also be viewed. Microsoft word can be used to view the datasets.
