Ozone water treatment advantages in the agri-food industry

Compared to other methods of water disinfection, like chlorine treatment, ozone water treatment has a number of advantages. Ozone is a very potent oxidant that quickly neutralizes pathogens, bacteria and viruses. There is no need to store or transport hazardous chemicals because ozone is created on-site and as needed. Additionally, many harmful bacteria, including Norovirus, E. coli, and Salmonella, are neutralized by ozone, greatly enhancing the quality of the water.

Sustainable development

Since ozone is a tri-atomic molecule of oxygen contained in air, the process is completely sustainable. Ozone is produced on-site and is safe as well as effective. Its production can be adjusted as needed. Ozone water treatment is a long-term solution for enhancing water quality.

Economic and environmental benefits for numerous ozone applications

Ozone water treatment is becoming more and more prevalent in the agri-food sector due to its numerous financial and environmental advantages.

  • Water/soft drink bottling line: ozone has three advantages, including water disinfection, water flavor improvement, and water color removal. The majority of water bottling facilities use ozone. Call us and describe your requirements.

  • Hydroponic greenhouses: ozone is used to treat recirculating water to reduce bacteriological loads such as Pythium or Streptomyces. Ozone improves the control of these dangerous substances while also boosting water oxygenation.
  • Water to wash fruits and vegetables: ozone water treatment eliminates the need of peracetic acid, hydrogen peroxide and chlorine dioxide, which are normally used to disinfect fruits and vegetables. Ozone allows for better food quality because it improves the taste. The ozonation, in the end, enables food to receive organic certification.
  • Animal drinking water: The disease brought on by parasites that are present in animal drinking water is a recurring issue. Ozone treatment of animal drinking water ensures effective food production without the use of chemicals while improving production yield.
  • Grain storage: multiple fungal species, such as mycotoxins, which renders them useless for producers and processors can be found on various types of grains. Food security is enhanced while eliminating various fungal species control through the use of gas-based ozone in storage silos.
  • CIP (clean-in-place) for food processing (seafood, poultry and meats): By washing and cleaning the food produce with ozonated water, pathogens can be eliminated while maintaining the food's freshness.

Other applications

Aquaculture And Public Aquarium

Ozone treatment is the optimal choice to ensure a healthy environment for living organisms in aquaculture and public aquariums. Ozone treatment disinfects recirculated water without endangering marine life.

Odor Treatment

Treating the air with ozone is an efficient and all-natural way to eliminate unpleasant odors caused by aromatic molecules. Commercial buildings' plenum air return systems, restaurant ventilation pipes, and waste rooms often use ozone to create a healthy environment, odor free.


In the context of industrial water treatment, ozone treatment is able to oxidize wastewater contaminants such as cyanide and arsenic. Moreover, it facilitates the precipitation of several metals, including iron and manganese, as well as organic materials that are challenging to process biologically. Ozone technology offers a lasting solution for wastewater reuse and recycling, which is in high demand in arid regions around the world.


Ozone treatment has been tried and tested for decades and is the best way to ensure safe drinking water for everyone. Ozone kills a variety of bacteria, viruses, and odor-causing substances in water, including hydrogen sulfide (H2S). Furthermore, ozone removes water coloration due to its oxidizing properties. Ozone is the best option for treating the emerging pollutants in municipal wastewater.

Water Parks

To maintain the quality of their water and protect the health of visitors, water parks are increasing the use of ozone to reduce harmful chlorine products. Ozone treatment eliminates bacteria easily and quickly while significantly reducing the need for chlorination, which irritates the skin and eyes. Over-chlorination can also produce trihalomethanes, which are harmful to human health. Ozonation provides a better experience and a safer environment for all visitors.

Cooling tower

Ozonation of water in cooling towers enhances the ability to control bacteria like Legionella, making it a highly effective and safe method. Ozone is produced on-site and is extremely stable at various pH levels. Ozone works 3,000 times faster than chlorine in water treatment of this type. Ozone replaces the ongoing requirement for biocides, offers financial efficiency, and provides peace of mind knowing that the water has received appropriate treatment.
