An electrical current running through salty water creates a mixture of chemicals that kills microbes such as bacteria, fungi and viruses. The mixture is called ‘electrolysed water’, but the process - anodic oxidation. There are many other names for electrolysed water, including, hydrolysed water, electrically activated water, electrochemically produced water, activated water, active water, etc.
This is a promising technology for disinfection and disease control. It is already used successfully in many industries.
