Viral agents to target and kill pathogens and odour-producing bacteria in fecal waste

Development of Phages and Lytic Agents against Microbial Pathogens in Sewage

Viruses infecting the bacteria, called bacteriophage (phage), have been used for over 90 years as an alternative to antibiotics in Russia, east Europe and France.  They are currently being tried as a possible therapy against multi-drug-resistant strains of many bacteria. We are looking for potential application of bacteriophages and their parts or enzymes from kitchen waste in treating enteric infections and foul smell from domestic wastewater (toilet).
