Derived from the Greek name “ozein” meaning the verb smell, is characterised by the pungent smell of ozone. Used since the 20th century mainly for municipal water treatment, the benefits of ozone have been deployed in numerous applications notably waste water treatment, potable water treatment, pool water disinfectant, cooling tower water treatment, aquaculture as well as in air quality improvement in industrial and commercial use. Ozone is also used in the pharmaceutical domain for vaccine and medicine production as well as decontamination/sanitation of medical and white rooms. Its oxidizing potential also enable it to be used in sterilisation of surgical instruments.
A clean and sustainable technology, ozone when properly applied represents an ecological, effective and economical solution in addressing numerous problematic situations related to air quality and water treatment.
A proven and safe solution, ozone is recognized as the most eco-friendly and natural bacterial deactivator and also the most powerful and fastest.

A powerful disinfectant, ozone destroys bacteria 3,000 times faster than chlorine. It is unrivalled in controlling numerous types of bacteria such as E. coli, Giardia, Salmonella, Legionella and fecal coliform, and in deactivating viruses, fungi and mold. Ozone precipitates heavy metals (iron, manganese, etc.) and oxidizes organic compounds enabling to filter them. It neutralizes the color of water (ex: yellow tannins) and eliminates bad odors. It is non-carcinogenic and produces no waste or toxic by-products.
Why does ozone work?
The reduction potential or Redox of ozone is 2.07V making it an ideal oxidant for deactivation of bacteria, viruses and pathogens. In comparison, the following chemical products have lower redox values:
- HOCl: 1.49V
- Cl2: 1.36V
- ClO2: 1.27V
- O2: 1.23V
- H2O2 0.87
