Analysis and research of sterilization technology and cell-destruction mechanism by alternative current electrolysis

Research Details
  • To improve the reliability in the alternative current electrolysis sterilization, “additional experiment, research, and verification” for sterilization effects as well as modeling and verification of the sterilization mechanism were conducted using cultured bacteria and microbes. As “technology evaluation” for practical use, the sterilization effect against toxic bacteria (common bacteria, coli forms) was verified for various samples including wafer from lakes/ponds, cooling towers, and hot springs.
  • Institute for the Geo-Resources and Environment, National Institute of Advanced Industrial Science and Technology: Verification and evaluation for the decomposition of soil contaminants VOC by electrolysis, flocculation, and recovery of arsenic and heavy metal

Collaborative research with the National Agriculture and Food Research Organization (NARO)
