Food Ozone and the Corona Virus

Airzone Ozone the Magic Formula For Food Preservation

Stopping the spread of COVID-19 is the top priority for businesses and governments around the world. Biozone Manufacturing wants to do its part to ensure the food we eat is healthy, safe and tastes great.

Corona Clear the Air

Today we are living in a world of “new norms,” with social distancing, working from home, closed schools, and hand sanitizer shortages.  All of these efforts are coronavirus risk mitigation tools. Health officials also encourage us to eat healthy and build our immune systems.  But how can we be sure that the food we’re eating, particularly fruits and produce, are safe and virus-free?

Biozone Manufacturers, use ozone systems on container cargos to mitigate the spread of this and other viruses, and to protect the food we eat.  The Airzone or Aquazone ozone system is the only solution proven effective to minimize decay, control ripening, and enhance food safety without the use of chemicals.Studies Show Ozone Kills Coronaviruses
As the world grapples with stopping the spread of COVID-19, studies are being conducted on ozone and its ability to destroy the current coronavirus:

Thailand Medical News, February 5, 2020

  • “Ozone gas has been proven to kill the SARS coronavirus and since the structure of the new 2019-nCoV coronavirus is almost identical to that of the SARS coronavirus, it is relatively safe to say that it will also work on the new coronavirus, though it must be noted that there is only one current ongoing study in China at the Institute of Virology in Hubei with regards to this. Progress of that study has shown that it works. Additionally, there are more than 17 scientific studies that show Ozone gas is able to destroy the SARS coronavirus.”

Some of the key concerns about the new 2019-nCoV coronavirus is that the rate and types of transmission paths for this virus are extremely dangerous. According to a new study from the National Institutes of Health, CDC, UCLA and Princeton University scientists, published on March 17, 2020 NIH/National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases scientists found that severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) was detectable in aerosols for up to three hours, up to 24 hours on cardboard and up to two to three days on plastic and stainless steel. The results provide key information about the stability of SARS-CoV-2, which causes COVID-19 disease, and suggests that people may acquire the virus through the air and after touching contaminated objects.

How Ozone Works
For years, growers and shippers tried to protect their cargo with traditional controlled or modified atmosphere systems, fungicides, and temperature recorders. But these systems lacked vital capabilities. They could not reduce decay, reduce pathogens, control ripening, and enhance food safety simultaneously. They could also not be monitored in real time and the reefer conditions could not be adjusted en route.  Scientifically engineered, the Purfresh system enhances the atmosphere inside the container with an active form of oxygen—commonly referred to as ozone—to control molds, yeasts, ethylene, Salmonella, E. coli, listeria and other contaminants in the air and on surfaces. Because it uses oxygen from the air, Purfresh is able to continuously generate ozone throughout the transportation of the food products.
