Plug-In Ozone Emitters

Ozone EmittersOzone air cleaners inject the chemical Ozone into the environment. Ozone is an oxygen molecule with an extra oxygen atom which it wants to lose so that it can return to a stable two atom structure. When Ozone encounters a chemical it gives up its extra oxygen molecule and thus oxidizes the encountered substance. While this most likely eliminates odors it also creates oxidized chemicals of unknown values in the environment.

Ozone while valuable in the atmosphere is considered to be a pollutant in a human environment. It has been found to kill small animals and cause negative respiratory impact to those that are sensitive.
