GEOCAPTAGE

With electrochemical reactions, in polluted sea water of port, both the dissolved metallic elements and marine sediments polluted, the innovative devise built aggregated material on immersed metallic structure acting like cathode. Then with significant aggregated volume, this products will be dredged easily and properly, the marine sedimentsand sea water will be preserved with less pollution and dissolved heavy metals.
