Food Contamination: Ozone Answers Concerns

Recent research has shown that ozone treatment has many advantages over chlorine and other available anti-microbial agents. A key advantage of ozone over chlorine is that it not only kills bacteria, but it also destroys viruses and waterborne parasites.

The Role of Ozone in Water Bottling

Because of the relative and perceived ease of ozone treatment, many bottlers still don't use proven ozone process controls and monitoring technology. Thus, they're yet to assure precise ozone treatment, which is necessary when certain contaminants--such as bromide, from which bromate is formed--are present in the source water. The careful use of controls can result in bottled water of a higher quality.
