Some of them are known as disruptive endocrine compound. This manuscript assessed the toxicity of three common plasticisers, including Bis(2-Ethylhexyl)phthalate (DEHP), o-hydroxybiphenyl (HBP) and 2,6-di-tert-butyl-4-(dimethylaminomethyl) phenol (MAMP) on the methanogens during the anaerobic process. It was found that DEHP and MAMP did not impede methanogenesis up to 200 mg/L, but no additional methane could be obtained from their degradation. In contrast, HBP severely inhibited methanogens at 200 mg/L, but after acclimatisation it could be metabolised resulting in a 25% increase in methane production compared to the control.||URI:||https://hdl.handle.net/10356/96356
