In case of wastewater, the various pollutants become electrolytes and lower the electrical resistance in water. The electrolytes disassociate into cations, which move to the cathode, and anions, which travel to the anode, thus allowing continuous electrical flow in the water. An anion from the electrolyte will lose an electron and be oxidized when the electrolyte anion has less standard electrode potential than the hydroxide. A cation with a greater standard electrode potential than the hydrogen ion will also be reduced [More]

The particulates are neutralized by the formation of hydroxide complexes for the purpose of forming agglomerates. These agglomerates begin to form at the bottom of the tank and can be syphen out through filtration. However, when one considers an electro coagulation-flotation apparatus, the particulates would instead float to the top of the tank by means of formed hydrogen bubbles that are created from the anode. The floated particulates can be skimmed from the top of the tank. [More]
