Ozone to control mold spores in industrial cheese factory

EMO3 was approached by one of Canada’s largest fine cheese factory to help in providing a sustainable solution for mold spore and growth control in production and ripening rooms. This request followed a restriction by Health Canada to ban fumigation treatment in this industry.

The Cooling Technology Institute annual conference

We are excited to announce that EMO3 will be attending the Cooling Technology Institute annual conference (https://www.coolingtechnology.org/meetings) in New Orleans from Feb 10 to 14....

Effects of three oxidizing biocides on Legionella pneumophila serogroup 1.

A study was conducted to determine the bactericidal effects of ozone and hydrogen peroxide relative to that of free chlorine on Legionella pneumophila serogroup 1. In laboratory batch-type experiments, organisms seeded at various densities were exposed to different concentrations of these biocides in demand-free buffers...

Six Reasons To Consider Sustainable Water Treatment For Cooling Towers

Use of recurring and costly chemical products to treat water or disinfect cooling towers often requires continuous monitoring by staff members as well as them having to manage/handle chemical products. More and more, operators are looking for a more sustainable approach to treat cooling water....

84% of US cooling towers contain Legionella bacteria

DNA evidence of Legionella bacteria is present in 164 cooling towers throughout eight of the nine climate regions in the United States, according to a study published in PLOS One....

What is China doing to tackle its air pollution?

The air in much of China is so bad the government has repeatedly declared "war" on it. The enemy are tiny particulates which spew forth from countless cars, coal-fired power stations and steel plants to create a dense, putty-coloured smog...

Air pollution, a silent killer

Nearly 9,500 people die early each year in London due to long-term exposure to air pollution, more than twice as many as previously thought, according to new research...

Ozone, a way of controlling gastroenteritis in air

According to a study conducted in eight hospitals and nursing, homesagastroenteritis virus can be spread by airbourne means. Bioaerosol norovirus was detected in 54 % of patient rooms affected by gastroenteritis . In addition, aerosolized gastroenteritis was present in 38% of corridors with acces to the rooms, as well as half of the nurse workstations...

The Airport of Dubai, innovations!

The Dubai International Airport may be the largest ozonated HVAC system in the world with air treatment in all of their buildings. Early in the airport’s growth, the airport’s manager felt that superior air treatment was required to give a clean, fresh air to accommodate the many international passengers who visit their establishment....

THE USE OF OZONE IN COOLING TOWERS

Ozone has been successfully applied to industrial cooling water systems with the resultant improvement in operational efficiency due to increased heat transfer, reduced system corrosion, improved environmental impact and reduced on-going chemical expenditure. The aim of this paper is to provide practical advice on the options available for the application of ozone and the potential benefits which can be realised...
