Abstract In this study, the turning point for nanoscale zero-valent iron’s (NZVI) promotion and inhibition effects of methane production coupled with the reduction of antibiotic resistance genes (ARGs) was investigated. Adding 150 mmol/L NZVI increased methane production by maximum of 23.8 %, which was due to the chemical reaction producing H2 and enhancement of direct interspecies electron transfer (DIET) by NZVI. NZVI350 dramatically repressed methane generation by 48.0 %, which might be associated with the large quantity of reactive oxygen species (ROS) and excessive H2 inhibiting the functioning of microorganisms. The fate of ARGs was significantly related to daily methane production, indicating that the more methane production finally generated, the less the abundance of ARGs at last left. The reduction of ARGs was enhanced by maximum of 61.0 %, which was attributed to the inhibition of vertical gene transfer (VGT) and horizontal gene transfer (HGT) caused by steric hindrance associated with NZVI corrosion.
