A new numeric method is proposed to analyse the polarization of flow-through bipolar electrodes. This method is able to predict the behaviour of three-dimensional bipolar electrode based upon the experimentally measured monopolar polarization curve. The effect of electrolytic current density and solution resistivity on current efficiency is also discussed.
