Ozone is a trace gas in the earth’s atmosphere. It is formed by the combination of oxygen atoms in the atmosphere and oxygen atoms, which are combined with oxygen molecules in the atmosphere. It contains three oxygen atoms. More than 90% of the ozone in the atmosphere exists in the upper part of the atmosphere or in the stratosphere, 10 to 50 kilometers from the ground. This is the atmospheric ozone layer that needs human protection. There are also a small number of ozone molecules that are close to the ground and still have a role in blocking UV rays. However, some experts have found that the concentration of ozone in the atmosphere near the ground has a tendency to increase rapidly, which is not good. Although ozone plays an important role in protecting humans and the environment in the stratosphere, if it increases in tropospheric concentrations, it will have a detrimental effect on human health. Ozone has a stimulating effect on the eyes and respiratory tract, and also on lung function. Higher concentrations of ozone are also harmful to plants.
Ozone has the functions of food purification, drinking water purification, disinfection and sterilization, air purification, fruit and vegetable preservation, mildew proof, fish culture, watering, deodorization, etc. It can be used to purify air, bleach drinking water, sterilize, treat industrial waste and bleach Agent.
