Ozone Water Purification

Treating water to make it suitable to drink is much like waste water treatment. For example, Nitrate in drinking water can cause cyanosis, a reduction of the oxygen carrying capacity of the blood.

Ozone is a strong oxidizing agent which oxidizes and kills organic substances, pesticides and pathogenic organisms such as viruses and bacteria, so that they can be filtered out in the subsequent steps.


Ozone treatment of drinking water benefits water quality in several ways.

  • It prevents formation of trihalomethanes and other organochlorine compounds by decomposing humic acids. Humic acids react with chlorine to produce this class of substances.
  • It deodorizes drinking water by breaking down two major compounds that contribute to musty smell, geosmine and 2-methylisoborneol, which other processes do not remove.
  • Combined with activated carbon filtration, it serves to remove agricultural chemicals, wastes from high-tech industrial processes and other substances listed in water-quality regulations.
