Swedish ozone generator supplier Primozone is delivering ozone generators to two ozone odor control projects on Iceland. These are the latest two of a number of deliveries to odor control projects for the food and beverage industry.

Odor from the food processing industry and fish factories is becoming a problem as cities are growing. People who are not used to the smell do not want to relocate to areas close to these factories and thus the market for odor removal is growing constantly.

Ozone is an efficient way to control and remove odor from for example fish factories. It is a stable solution that will solve the odor problem quickly.

On Iceland Primozone works with Gaia ehf who has a long experience in ozone and ozone solutions for different applications.

-  Primozone delivers robust, reliable and maintenance free ozone generators and we are very happy to have them as a supplier of ozone generators for our projects, says Kristjan Petur Hilmarsson, Sales Manager at Gaia.

Primozone has previously delivered ozone generators to several odor control project within the food and beverage industry in densely populate parts of England.

About ozone and ozone generation

Ozone is a naturally produced gas, essentially made up by oxygen. Oxidation by ozone is one of the most effective water treatment processes that exist. It kills microorganisms and cleans, treats, and disinfects water. It can also be used to control the taste, odor and colour of water. Ozone is an unstable gas and is produced on site by ozone generators. Ozone treatment is an environmentally friendly way of treating water, as opposed to chemicals like chlorine.

Interest in and usage of ozone to treat water has increased due to the fact that it is environmentally friendly, very effective (in the light of stricter regulation and more frequent outbursts of harmful bacteria and parasites in drinking water), and due to the availability of more efficient and energy efficient ozone generators like Primozone’s.

Primozone’s solution is based on a patented new way to generate ozone in high concentrations through a very efficient cold plasma process.
