How to set maximum substance deposition in electrochemistry module?

I recently read the article Modelling the Molten Salt Electrorefining Process for Spent Metal Fuel Using COMSOL. This article used 'secondary current distribution' and 'transport of the diluted species'.
U and Pu were dissolved from the Cd anode, into the molten salt and deposited at the solid cathode, as shown in Figure 6, where U was fully deposited and Pu began to be deposited at approximately 50h.
The authors seem to have set a maximum amount of U and Pu to be deposited and would like to know how this should be achieved in COMSOL? Thank you all very much!
