Rapid sea minerals electrodeposition for reclamation of polluted beaches and form marine structure.

Treatment of seawater toxic waste and pollution by installing modular frames in water or spreading meshes, connecting to power supply, and after 1 to 4 months receive a structure. The method requires minimum inspection operations.
Current method for building marine structures is the preparing of seabeds by heavy equipment, conveying filling material from land, and concrete molding in site. The process is weather dependent.
Our method exploits the conductivity of saline water, by employing electrolysis, deposit seawater minerals on the cathode. It may requires some additives as necessary, and if preferred, a sophisticated cathode to form the desired shape of structure. The anode is made in a way that will form oxygen.
By this method, a toxic waste material that has been shipped and spread in seawater is transformed into build structures on seabed as sealed warehouse.
Polluted beaches and smelling ports that were left without treatment, effectively treated by spreading conductive mesh over beach and deposit new rock.
