What is Ozone?

 

Ozone (O3) can be found as a naturally ocurring gas in the upper atmosphere. It is often used as a safe (FDA approved) but very powerful disinfectant (3,000 times faster than bleach). It:

  • Rapidly oxidizes bacteria it comes in contact with, then reverts safely back into Oxygen (O2), making it one of the most environmentally friendly cleaning methods available.

  • Effectively deodorizes, disinfects, and destroys bacteria, fungi, allergens, and other odor-causing agents.

  • Has long been used in water treatment, food sterilization and medical therapies for its remarkable anti-viral, anti-fungal, and anti-bacterial properties.

How Does Ozone Kill Bacteria?

 

In the computer models shown below, we see how ozone works. 

  • Ozone (O3), shown in green, comes into contact with the bacteria. 

  • The 3rd oxygen atom in the ozone molecule is unstable and becomes absorbed by the bacteria.

  • That oxygen atom penetrates the bacteria cell wall. 

  • Which leads to the complete destruction of the bacteria cell and only oxygen (O2) remains.

  • Unlike other treatments, ozonation does not allow bacteria to mutate.
