Abstract

Vibrio parahaemolyticus, the cause of gastroenteritis in humans, was inactivated by alternating low-amperage electricity. In this study, the application of alternating low-amperage electric treatment to effluent seawater was investigated for the large-scale disinfection of seawater. This method was able to overcome the problem of chlorine generation that results from treatment with continuous direct current. In conclusion, our results showed that alternating-current treatment inactivates V. parahaemolyticus in effluent seawater while minimizing the generation of chlorine and that this alternating-current treatment is therefore suitable for practical industrial applications.
