The Coronavirus pandemic has sparked an exponential increase in interest in ozone as a disinfectant. The phones at Oxidation Technologies have been ringing non-stop with people looking for answers and looking for help with their grand ideas for ozone as a silver coronavirus bullet. Our ozone specialists have been working hard to provide accurate information for those looking for answers. Ozone has been a powerful tool for over a hundred years, but misinformation is dangerous in a climate of desperation and hype. Our goal throughout this health crisis has been to educate our callers about safe and unsafe uses of ozone, effective and ineffective applications of ozone, and the facts and false claims people make about ozone.
If there is so much interest in ozone as a powerful and chemical-free disinfectant, why do we read so much about ozone as a very bad and deadly pollutant? For example, the American Lung Association says “Ozone (also called smog) is one of the most dangerous and widespread pollutants in the U.S.” On the other hand, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved the use of ozone as an antimicrobial agent for the treatment, storage and processing of foods in gas and aqueous phases.” For years, now, we have recognized the value of an atmospheric layer of ozone that shields “living things from too much ultraviolet radiation from the sun.” Ozone sterilization of water has made the bottled water industry possible providing billions of bottles of safe drinking water. The answer to this paradox is not difficult or mysterious, but does require some ozone education. We hope you take some time to explore the wealth of ozone information on our website.
At the time of writing, most major economies are entering into some form of lockdown, causing significant disruption to businesses and drastically changing the way we live our lives for the next few months.
Governments, Industry and Citizens are united in trying to slow the spread of COVID-19, to give health services time to prepare for the explosion in the demand for care. Sanitizing our homes, workplaces and public spaces is a key tactic in the fight against Coronavirus, to stop the spread of COVID-19. One method of sterilization is by using ozone. Ozone sterilization is commonly used in hospitals to sanitize equipment and significantly reduce or eliminate the spread of bacteria. Hence the question being asked is – “Can ozone sterilization kill the Coronavirus which causes the COVID-19 disease?”
blog post looks at the evidence and highlights the benefits of
sterilizing environments with ozone, as well as it’s associated risks.
OZONE STERILIZATION PROVEN TO KILL SARS-COV VIRUS
There are currently no examples in the public domain, of ozone sterilization being used to kill the current strain of Coronavirus, SARS-CoV-2
(technical name of the Coronavirus which causes the COVID-19 disease).
However, there are reasons to believe it would be effective:
As SARS-Cov-1 is also a member of the Coronavirus family, it is highly likely that ozone sterilization would be effective at killing SARS-CoV-2, the Coronavirus which causes the COVID-19 disease.
HOW DOES OZONE STERILIZATION KILL CORONAVIRUSES?
Coronaviruses are classified
as “enveloped viruses”, which
are typically more susceptible to “Physico-chemical challenges”. In
other words, they don’t like being exposed to ozone.
destroys this type of virus by breaking through the
outer shell into the core, resulting in damage to the viral RNA. Ozone
can also damage the outer shell of the virus in a process
called oxidation. Put simply, exposing Coronaviruses to sufficient ozone dose (ppm x time) can result in them being 99% damaged or destroyed.
WHAT ARE THE RISKS OF OZONE STERILIZATION?
even small amounts of ozone can be harmful. Symptoms include coughing,
shortness of breath, and aggravation of lung diseases like asthma. At
higher concentrations you can smell ozone, but it becomes harmful even
at lower doses. For that reason, many countries have set
an 8-hour exposure limit of 70 ppb (parts per billion) ozone. In the
EU the limit is set even lower. Ozone is one of six common pollutants
limited by the United States Environmental Protection Agency and other country’s Environmental regulators. Exposure to ozone in the workplace is controlled by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration and their counterparts around the world.
REDUCE THE RISK OF OZONE EXPOSURE BY MONITORING
ozone can sterilize coronavirus infected environments, residual ozone
could also cause respiratory issues for people who breathe it
in. To stop this from happening it is important to measure
and control indoor and outdoor levels of ozone after sterilization has

We have been getting many questions and interest on the use of ozone to help in the fight against COVID-19. The following is a statement released by the IOA (International Ozone Association) that gives great information on the current situation.
The SB100 Ozone Spray Bottle is a great way to sanitize your hands, and kill any bacteria and viruses on them. The bottle is filled with simple tap water, and when the button is pressed, an electrolitic ozone generating cell creates dissolved ozone as the water sprays out the nozzle. Hold the nozzle about 6 inches from the surface of the hand you are disinfecting, and press the button, allowing both sides if your hand to get completely wet from the spray. Switch hands and spray down your other hand in the same way. Then, rub hands together and allow to air dry. Because ozone (O3) converts quickly back to oxygen (O2), there is no chemical residue left on your hands. There also is no sticky feel left on your hands like that left when you use aloe-based hand sanitizer. In fact, your hands will feel clean and soft and smell fresh.
The SB100 ozone spray bottle turns common drinking water into an ozone solution, a sanitizer more powerful than chlorine but without chlorines dangerous fumes or residue. This is an environmentally friendly, truly “Green”, chemical free solution.

Ozone has been proven effective against all viruses and bacteria. The most effective method to harness the power of ozone is aqueous ozone. Now, this is available in a compact device.
The table below lists the efficacy of the SB100 spray bottle on two common surfaces, against a representative sample of pathogens. Similar results were achieved with other surfaces such as, PVC, vinyl, Formica, Corian, granite, silicone, chrome, and porcelain.
There has been a great deal of recent interest in the use of ozone to eliminate pathogens, and specifically viruses. Here is some brief info on the use of ozone to eliminate pathogens.
Ozone can be used to eliminate pathogens including viruses and bacteria. In fact, there are no known viruses or bacteria that are immune to the oxidation of ozone. The best method to harness the power of ozone is to dissolve ozone in water and use aqueous ozone. However, ozone in the gas form can also be used to eliminate pathogens.
Aqueous ozone activity against viruses
Several published studies have shown aqueous ozone to reduce infectivity of common viruses by more than 99.999% [Reference below]. Aqueous ozone inactivates microbes, including both viruses and bacteria, by oxidation of the cell surface and internal structures. This disrupts the microbe’s structure and pathogenicity. Enveloped viruses such as Coronaviruses are particularly susceptible.

Ozone Effect on Pathogens
As a biocide, ozone works similarly to chlorine (another oxidant) and is used in a similar manner. Ozone disinfects by directly oxidizing and destroying the microorganism’s cell wall, causing cellular components to leak outside the cell. This causes protoplasmic destruction of the cell, damaging constituents of the nucleic acids, and breaks the carbon–nitrogen bonds, which leads to depolymerization. During the process, ozone splits into oxygen and an ozone atom, which is lost during the reaction with the microorganism’s cell fluids, O3 -> O2 + (O).
As you can see, the ozone generator price is only a portion of the entire picture when choosing an ozone generator. Keep in mind if ozone is used for water treatment ozone concentration will be important to improve ozone solubility into water. This factor, along with long-term reliability of the equipment, maintenance, and power consumption should be considered.
