Suitable electrolyte conditioning at the electrodes greatly facilitates the transport of desired ions through soil, enhancing the ability of electrokinetic processes to stabilize the soil through cementing reactions. Cationic species are injected at the anode, and anionic species at the cathode, wit ...
