Benefits of Ozone What is Activated Oxygen? Ozone is a natural gas the same released during thunderstorms!It has a very strong oxidizing power that can disinfect and sterilize air, water and all surfaces with which it comes into contact: in a short time, it can degrade any pollutants, destroy smoke and odors, eliminate mites, viruses, insects, bacteria, spores and molds in a completely natural way, without the use of detergents and without releasing pollutants that are hazardous to the environment or to humans (in line with the provisions governing ISO 14000
Environmental Certification). As bactericide, ozone is more reactive than chlorine, given that its viruses and bacteria destruction percentage is greater than 99.98%.
As it is well known, ozone (oxygen in allotropic state) is an unstable gas composed of trivalent oxygen(O3), which occurs naturally in the atmosphere by irradiation of ultraviolet sun rays or by electrical discharges occurring during storms. In the mountains, it is present in greater concentrations, which can be perceived by humans through feeling fresh and clean air. Ozone (O3) is, therefore, a natural gas that leaves no trace or chemical residue. Its highly oxidizing power and natural tendency to return to oxygen (O2) make it a product with high potential in many applications for the treatment of air and water, and in food industry processes.Activated Oxygen (O3) is the triatomic form of oxygen (O2). It is oxygen in its most active stateand is an extremely potent oxidant that has been shown to possess broad spectrumantimicrobial activity.
Without Activated Oxygen (O3) we would likely all die of putrefication from theplanet’s pollutants, waste, germs, bacteria, molds, viruses, fungi, etc. Non-touch technologies include the usage of UV-lamps and chemicals dispersed as an aerosol or gas which deactivates microorganisms. Compared to other treatment methods for air disinfection, ozone can efficiently disinfect large air volumes, neutralizing micro-organisms, including viruses.
This makes it ideal for use in medical applications, for example in hospitals or doctors waiting rooms. An important factor that enables savings is the time the cleaning agent can actively deactivate bacteria, as compared in the figure below
