A technology applied in the treatment of wastewater, which utilizes the destabilization of dissolved, suspended, or emulsified contaminants in the water, and is achieved by introducing an electric current into the water through parallel metal plates of various materials, the most common being iron and aluminum.

Following this process, on one side, an effluent with a high iron or aluminum content is produced, which must be treated with other technologies, and on the other side, a series of sludges that are subsequently separated using traditional methods (filtration, decantation, or flotation).


  • Food industry
  • Surface treatment industry
  • Textile industry
  • Corrugated fiberboard (cardboard) plants
  • Mining
  • Water potabilization
  • Wastewater reuse


Some of the advantages of this technology in comparison with traditional physical-chemical treatments are:

  • Simple and easy-to-operate equipment
  • Reduction of the use of chemicals
  • Generates less and more compact sludge
  • Produces larger floccules with less water content
