Ozone Disinfection of Commercial Goods at Global Scale

This project investigates the possible use of the oxygen coproduct from electrolytic hydrogen production, as a feed to produce ozone for disinfection purposes. The shift to a hydrogen economy will see a significant increase in the amount of oxygen produced, and currently, this oxygen has no use. It is possible to capture the oxygen, and to convert oxygen to ozone. The technological challenge is to determine the limits for safe operation of the ozone disinfection processes. This project will scope the this concept with the proposed application of sterilization in a distribution warehouse.
