2What is OZONE?Ozone (O3) is a natural element and is readily found in nature.OO2Ozone (O3) is composed of 3 Atoms of oxygenO3Ozone is a very powerful disinfectant Destroying 99.99% of: bacteria, viruses, fungi, spores, protozoa, yeast, cysts, algae….
3What is OZONE? ► Ozone is 3 Atoms of oxygen Video: Click to watch► Ozone is 3 Atoms of oxygen► The world 3rd most powerful oxidizer► Ozone is suicidal in a way:Ozone destroys contaminants and revert back to normal oxygen
4Oxidizing Agents comparison Oxidation PotentialRelative Power to ChlorineFluorine (F2)3.062.25Ozone (O3)2.071.52Hydrogen Peroxide (H2O2)1.771.30Potassium Permanganate (KMnO4)1.671.23Chlorine (Cl2)1.361.00Chlorine Dioxide(ClO2)1.270.93Bromine (Br2)1.090.80Ozone is 1.5 times more powerful than chlorine and 3000 times faster acting than chlorine
5Where ozone can be found? Ozone is naturally produced in the atmosphere by lighting dischargesOzone is also produced from sun’s ultra-violet rays in our upper atmosphere producing the ozone layer
6How is ozone Created industrially? Normal Oxygen molecule O2 present in the airO3 will revert back to O2 after the oxidationOzone is produced by applying electrical energy to split the oxygen moleculesO3 Attacks Viruses, Bacteria,Mold, Fungi, pollution,ContaminantsApplied energy splits O2 into Atomic OxygenOzone is produced on spot by ozone generatorsNo chemicals AddedO3 is very Unstable and Start to performs OxidationOzone is immediately consumed as it reverts back to normal oxygenAtomic Oxygen O1 connects with O2 and O3 is formed
7Remain in water or on food Chlorine: the Traditional DisinfectantChlorine is an effective disinfectant, But:Chlorine reacts with natural organics present in water to form chemical by-productsChlorine chemical by-products are highly toxic, carcinogenic and very hard to remove (ex: Trihalomethanes formation or THM)CHLORINEDISINFECTCreates ToxicBy-ProductsRemain in water or on food
8Chlorine effects on Health: World Health Organization, Geneva 2003:■ Exposure to chlorinated water can triggers Asthma■ Chlorinated water increases Cholesterol/HDL ratio■ Chlorinated water increases the risk of bladder Cancer■ Chlorinated water significantly increases Dermatitis episodesEnvironmental Protection Agency (EPA) USA:■ Repeated exposure to chlorine in air or water adversely affect the immune system, the blood, the heart, and the respiratory system of animals.
9Chlorine effects on Environment: ■ Chlorine damages the gills of fish, inhibiting their ability to absorb oxygen■ Chlorine affects the behavioral changes of migratory movement of fish■ Chlorine creates reproductive problems in animals■ Tiny concentrations of chlorine kills many aquatic life-formsChlorine causes environmental harm at low levels. Chlorine is especially harmful to organisms living in water and in soil.(EPA – Environmental Protection Agency USA)
10Ozone effect on Health: Ozone is 1.5 times more powerful than chlorine and 3000 times faster actingOzone safely reverts back to Normal oxygenDegrades pesticides, Herbicides and contaminants present on food or waterNO chemical by-product formationOZONEDISINFECTNO chemicals ResidueSAFE & BENEFICIAL for Health
11Ozone effect on Environment: Improves Biodegradation of contaminantsTrue destruction of pollution(the only technology to truly destruct contaminants)Ozone is 100% chemical-freeRemoves Chemical contaminants (including Pharmaceutical contaminants)Water treated with Ozone can be easily recycledOZONE
13Is the application of ozone approved by regulatory agencies? “Ozone may be safely used in the treatment, storage, and processing of foods, including meat and poultry.”“ Processed Food disinfected with ozone are permitted to be labeled as “Organic” or “Made with Organic”Ozone is also Approved by:
14ozone in drinking water treatment ► More powerful than traditional water treatment (chlorine) in disinfecting; destruction of microorganisms even the resistant bacteria, viruses & parasites► Complete removal of Odor & Color► Taste Enhancement► Degradation of pesticides, pharmaceutical residue and other contaminants► NO environmental or health endangering by-productsAfter Treatment with ozone After 30 days
15Ozone in Municipal Drinking water treatment Los Angeles the largest drinking water treatment plant in the world, uses ozone for water treatment.Europe:652 Municipal PlantsUSA & Canada:368 Municipal plants
16Ozone in water bottling Over 90% of bottling water companies in USA and Europe use Ozone for disinfection of water & bottles. WHY?Because till now there is no disinfectant or sanitizing agent that can be mixed in with the beverage without having an adverse effect on the organoleptic properties of the beverage.
17Some multi-national companies that uses OZONE for bottling beverages
18Ozone in Waste water treatment ▶ True destruction of toxic contaminants; other systems only Displace pollution whereas Ozone really destruct toxic contaminants▶ Degrades Agriculture chemicals▶ Degrades industrial Waste▶ Able to treat Complex Industrial waste▶ Dramatically Increase filters life▶ The most efficient systemIf an organic is resistant to oxidation by ozone it will be resistant to oxidation by other oxidants (Rice & Browning, 1980)
19Ozone in Waste water treatment In 2008 the city of Montreal announced that it will be the 1st city in the world to disinfect all of its wastewater using ozone. The total projected cost was $200 million.
20Some multi-national companies that uses OZONE for Wastewater treatment
21Ozone in Food Disinfection Ozone sanitize food, leaving no chemical trace behind.Ozone Reduces pesticides and other contaminants on Food.Ozone doesn’t affect the organoleptic (taste, texture, color & smell) properties of foods
22Effect of Ozone on Food borne Bacteria Source: California Polytechnic University
23Effect of Ozone on water consumption in food processing industries Ozone reduce water consumption up to 90%.The same water is recycled back into the system and is converted back to ozonated water.chlorine water needs to be replaced every 2-3 hours; chlorinated water is wastedReduce chilling costReduce water consumptionReduce waste water fees.
24Ozone effect on produce: Ozone reduce brown spot on fruits & vegetablesImprove sensory qualities of the produce21 days of life extension of fruits & vegetables50 to 80% extension of fish and beefReduce weight loss of fruits and vegetablesOZONETap WaterOZONETap WaterAfter 8 daysAfter 16 days

30Ozone in Agriculture Ozone irrigation in golf turf ■ Eliminates Sodium Build-up■ Neutralize Bicarbonates, Salts & sodium■ Stop bicarbonates from binding to light metals such as calcium & ironAfter 67 DaysIncrease in vital metals biologically available to the soil (increase calcium, iron & Magnesium levels in soil)Normal Water IrrigationOzone Water Irrigation
31Ozone in Agriculture Ozone water in Animal farms & zoos ■ Improve water quality without any chemicals (high in oxygen)■ Improve performance & recovery time during races and training■ Animal wash without harmful chemicals that many animals are allergic to■ Disinfect animal rest place
32Ozone in Fish farmingWhile farmers nowadays always are looking for ways to increase production, the easiest way (and less costly way) is to increase the numbers of fish in a given volume. This increase in fish density will proportionally increase the risk of Infections▶ Ozone Greatly decreases the risk of infection▶ The converted oxygen (Dissolved Oxygen) is beneficialfor fish▶ Ozonated water can be easily recycled into the ponds
33Ozone Air TreatmentOzone is used as a Shock-treatment in its gaseous form to decontaminate and provide a perfectly clean environment (no bad odors, no microorganisms etc…)US army use ozone to neutralize weaponized AnthraxTraditional use for hospital disinfection is chemicals use
34Ozone Air TreatmentDisadvantages of using chemicals for room decontamination:High cost of chemicalsWiping with chemicals requires much work and is unsuitable for walls, curtains and ceilingRetention of an unpleasant disinfectant odor in the treated room after decontaminationPotential inhalation of chemicals by hospital staffOzone can be used for Hospitals & Hotel rooms decontamination- It is quick (15 min), easy and much more powerful
35Ozone Air TreatmentAir PollutionAMA (American Medical Association):50% of all illnesses could be attributed to indoor air pollutionEPA (Environmental Protection Agency – USA):Indoor air pollution can reach as much as 200 times as outside pollutionCenter of disease control – USA:HOSPITAL ACQUIRED INFECTIONS- Is the 4th leading cause of death in the USAMore than 100,000 people will die each year as a resultOZONE can easily provide indoor clean pollution free environment
