Is said new device electric? Cause I'm fairly sure electrolysis has been known for a while now...

Electrolysis needs to be done with pure water to not destroy the device eventually. This is different because it appears to be sustainable and stable in seawater. The test said that after 3200 hours the membrane was still fine. Probes for electrolysis would be fried well before that.
