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.
