Cold storage
Ozone offers many benefits as a disinfectant. It acts on contact to eliminates 99.999% of all bacteria, viruses, and molds, thereby removing the chance of biofilm and slime from forming in the first place. Its bacterial disinfection mechanism works by oxidizing the bacteria cell wall and membrane, causing cell lysis and impairing cell functionality. Bacteria and microorganisms cannot build a resistance to ozone. Ozone exhibits a short half-life before reverting back to oxygen, its only by-product, and leaves behind no residue.

Cold Storage

Gaseous ozone has been shown to effectively combat mold and beteria in a cold storage environment and directly on produce in cold storage. The main benefit of using gaseous ozone is that mold and bacteria can be controlled both in the air and surfaces. Additionally, gaseous ozone oxidizes and destorys ethylene gas that is released when fruits and vegetables begin to ripen by the following reaction:                                                    CH2+O3=CO2+H2O  Thus, the use of...
