Ozone is an allotropic form of oxygen; each molecule contains three atoms of oxygen instead of the usual two. Ozone is a powerful disinfectant and has been used commercially for the treatment of potable water since 1904. It is produced on site in the same way that ozone is formed naturally, by the discharge of electricity during a thunderstorm. A high voltage is passed across a gas stream containing oxygen. This method of ozone generation is called corona discharge. The energy of the high voltage splits an oxygen molecule (02) into two oxygen atoms (0) - which recombine with ordinary molecules of oxygen (02) to form ozone (03).

Multiple treatment reactions and benefits are obtained at ozonation, all at the same time. Ozone based advanced oxidation processes are important because of reactions with organic molecules that are not readily oxidized by ozone. One challenge beverage suppliers face is the need to deliver a product free of bacteria and with extended shelf life. Because of its powerful disinfectant properties, environmentally clean treatment process and its oxidative ability, ozone has become the technology of choice among water bottlers worldwide.
