Even where water quality is poor Biorock™/ Mineral Accretion :  Biorock™/ Mineral Accretion On underwater, conductive structures we assemble a positively charged anode and a negatively charged cathode (structure) Apply a low voltage electric current between them Safe for swimmers Which causes minerals to crystallize from seawater onto structures Calcium carbonate, white limestone (CaCO3) is formed Similar to natural coral reefs and tropical white sand Corals adhere to limestone and grow quickly How a Biorock™ Reef works:  How a Biorock™ Reef works Cathode (-) Conductive Structure Anode (+) Solar collector or other power supply (CaCO3) When a positively charged anode and a negatively charged cathode are suspended in sea water with an electric current flowing between them, calcium ions combine with carbonate ions and adhere to the structure (cathode). The result is calcium carbonate. Corals adhere to CaCO3 and grow quickly.
