We bring more sustainable and ecologic solutions for the companies.
Ozonium is a Finnish cleantech startup based in Tampere, that distributes and markets premium systems and solutions based on Ozone generation technology. We also offer consultancy services to help your company transition to a more ecologic disinfection and cleaning for your facilities.
The company was founded at the beginning of the year, with the idea of find the way to reduce the carbon footprint in the world. After some research, we discovered Ozone, its properties and the great benefits for companies and the environment. Our products are manufactured in Spain by Zonosistem, a company with more than 15 years of experience, being one of the most reliable ozone generator producers in the industry and founding members of the European Ozone Association. All ozone generators sold by us have CE certificate and declaration of conformity.
Ozone systems can save to companies up to 90% of their expense in chemicals need for cleaning and disinfection, as well as time on the process.
Ozone, after 20-30 minutes, dissolves back into breathable O2, leaving no sub-produt behind. It reduces plastic usage and chemical waste that pollutes water.
Ozone, if handled following the instructions, it is safe for employees or other users. Avoiding many chemical related work accidents.
Ozone eliminates 99.6% of pathogenic microorganisms such as viruses, bacteria, fungi, mold, spores, and more; even in the most inaccessible surfaces.
Ozone eliminates bad odors by attacking directly the particles that causes them. It removes the smell, opposing air fresheners that just mask smells.
Ozone is a powerful natural degreaser, as other chemicals but without the risk of accidents, i.e oven cleaners fumes or accidental sprays to eyes or mouth.

Ozone and ozone generators can be used in a wide range of air treatment applications. By using ozone, and oxidation, you can efficiently reduce or completely remove odors, contaminants and many other substances. Ozone can be used as a disinfectant to kill bacteria and viruses using low concentrations. In many applications it is achivable a bacteria reduction of 99%, even mold spores. Compared to other air treatment methods, ozone can efficiently disinfect large volumes of air, neutralizing micro-organisms, including viruses.
Being a gas enables ozone to reach hard to sanitize surfaces. Studies has shown that low ozone concentrations are capable of inactivating bacteria and enveloped viruses, like SARS-CoV2, by reacting with unsaturated fatty acids in the plasma membrane, certain surface proteins and RNA. However, for dealing with stable viruses and bacteria spores, higher concentrations of ozone together with air moisture is required over several hours.
After finished treatment ozone either decomposes into oxygen naturally over half and hour or the decomposition is accelerated significantly by the use of ozone destructors.
Ozone and ozone generators are used in various water treatment applications where a highly efficient and environmental friendly treatment method is required. By using ozone, oxidation and AOP (Advanced Oxidation Process) you can efficiently reduce or completely remove contaminants, toxins and many other substances, in various applications.
Disinfection: Ozone is a powerful disinfectant that quickly and efficiently eliminates viruses, bacteria, fungi, molds and spores from surfaces when in contact with ozonated water.
Degreaser and cleaner: It is a fantastic degreaser that can remove grease from the toughest places, like restaurant ovens. Its application is similar to that of other products, but it is much cheaper, it is ecological and safe to use.
Depuration: Ozone is a technology used worldwide to reduce COD, BOD, turbidity, color and odor. It also oxidizes heavy metals, phenols and other pollutants.
What is Ozone?
Ozone (O3) is a very powerful oxidation agent. It is easily soluble in water, and has a fantastic capacity to eliminate microorganisms that are part of water pollutants. Once the effect has taken place, it dissolves, returning to an oxygen state.
What is Ozone for?
Ozone is, both in water and air, a powerful disinfectant, bactericide, virucide, and fungicide. The main applications of ozone are for disinfection, deodorization of the environment and for the treatment and purification of water. With this, the elimination of pathogenic microorganisms and bad odors is achieved.
What are the Ozone properties?
Ozone is an oxidizing and disinfecting gas, making it a Biocide 3000 times more powerful and effective than most of the traditional disinfectant and chlorine based products. It eliminates 99.6% of pathogenic microorganisms such as viruses, bacteria, fungi, mold, spores, and more.
Ozone eliminates bad odors by attacking directly the cause that causes them, "the smelly substances". It does not add an overlaying odor to mask the smell, as air fresheners do.
Ozone, unlike other disinfectants, does not leave toxic chemical residues since it is a gas that decomposes and quickly transforms back into oxygen.
What are the main advantages and benefits of Ozone?
Ozone in air or water performs two main functions: microbicide and deodorizer. As a microbicide: Eliminates bacteria, viruses, fungi and spores. It is perhaps the most important property of ozone and the one most applications are attributed to it.
A microbe is a microorganism, denominated pathogen, which has the ability to cause contagious diseases. Microbes often remain on all types of surfaces, in all types of fluids, or float in the air associated with small specks of dust, especially in closed places where the air is renewed very slowly.
Ozone, thanks to its oxidizing properties, is considered one of the fastest and most effective microbicides known, and can act against microorganisms such as bacteria, viruses, fungi and spores. All of them are responsible for human health problems and also for bad smells. Ozone destroys the membrane that covers these microorganisms, eliminating them, also preventing them from regenerating or sticking to surfaces.
How does Ozone affect to the health?
Being a powerful oxidant, one should take precautions when using it, but not be afraid of it. We only recommend its use after our experts have given the full instruaction of how to use and avoid accidents. As other oxidizing agents, it is toxic above certain limits. It is naturally present in our environment with concentrations that vary from 0.01-0.15 ppm (particles per million), which translates to a ~0.3mg/m3. In urban areas this number can go up to 1.0 ppm.
Ozone has a peculiar odor, that helps people identify concentrations of it below the limit of 0.1ppm. This characteristics will help people avoid areas where the concentration is over the limit. Short exposure effects are not chronic and disappear within a couple of hours. The following limits are widely accepted (USA, Sweden, UK and other parts of Europe):
- 8 hour per day/5 days per week (occupational exposure limit) - 0.1 ppm
- 15 minutes (short term exposure limit) - 0.3 ppm
Concentrations of 0.1 - 1 ppm might cause headache, irritation in the eyes and throat.
Concentrations of 1 - 100 ppm will result in asthmatic like symptoms, lack of appetite, chest pain.
How does Ozone fight against virus and bacterias?
Ozone quickly degrades and inactivates harmful viruses and bacteria in the air and on surfaces. The only requirement is that the air to be treated is enclosed in a room. Remediation of viruses and bacteria can be used, for example, in industries, warehouses, gyms, hospitals, health care facilities, buses, taxis, trains, schools, ambulances, hotels, housing and restaurants
This are some of the viruses Ozone is known to be effective against: influenza, strain H3N2, human isolate (from BC Centre for Disease Control), propagated in MDCK cells; HSV (herpes simplex virus type 1, BC-CDC), propagated in Vero cells; rhinovirus types 1A and 14 (RV 1A and RV 14, from ATCC), propagated in H-1 cells; Adenovirus types 3 and 11 (ATCC), in A549 cells; mouse coronavirus (MCV, from Dr. Pierre Talbot) in DBT cells. Sindbis virus (SINV), yellow fever virus (YFV), vesicular stomatitis virus (VSV), poliovirus (PV, vaccine strain), vaccinia virus (VV), all ATCC strains, were grown in Vero cells.
Is Ozone usefull against SARS-CoV-2, the virus causing COVID-19?
Japanese researchers from Fujita Health University said on Wednesday 26th August that low concentrations of ozone can neutralise coronavirus particles, potentially providing a way for hospitals to disinfect examination rooms and waiting areas.
These researchers told a news conference they had proven that ozone gas in concentrations of 0.05 to 0.1 parts per million (ppm), levels considered harmless to humans, could kill the virus.
The experiment used an ozone generator in a sealed chamber with a sample of coronavirus. The potency of the virus declined by more than 90% when subjected to low level ozone for 10 hours.Source:Reuters
