System D has designed a compact ozone generator that can provide clean sterilized water anywhere. At the heart of this system is an electric powered “corona discharge” ozone generator that converts oxygen in the air (O2) to ozone (O3). The air is then injected into water. Ozone is a powerful oxidizer, way more powerful than chlorine. In the water it oxidizes metals, kills bacteria, and eats up just about any organics there are. Murky polluted water can be totally cleaned up and sterilized in a jiffy. We designed the O3 system to be reliable, inexpensive, long lasting and efficient. Our primary objective was to make this available to developing countries where children do not have clean water, opting for mass production, effectiveness and reliability. The O3 System kickstarter launches tomorrow – be sure to check it out.

    I think that in part this is a good concept, but O3 or ozone at ground level can cause substantial damage to the environment and to the human respiratory system. In fact when performing a Life Cycle Analysis on a product O3 is highlighted as a negative impact to the environment. If the children plan to drink this water they must be certain that the O3 has fully left the water and the surrounding area before hand. I admire their efforts in trying to remove chlorine from the system, but using O3 could be even more harmful, especially in developing countries where health care may be lacking and children may suffer from respiratory illnesses already. This system would work well if there were an ozone capture and safe disposal system to minimise contact with the substance.
