IOA-PAG Industrial Webinars
Ozone in Horticulture Webinar
Ozone is a powerful oxidant and disinfecting agent with a short residual lifetime. This means that it can purify water and surfaces and then decompose back to oxygen leaving behind few if any by-products. The characteristics of ozone make it a good choice for controlled environment agriculture (CEA) such as vertical farms and greenhouses. This webinar will begin with an introduction to ozone as it relates to the present applications. The session will then review applications of ozone in vertical farming including the use of ozone in combination with filtration as well as considerations with fertigation formulations. The use of ozone in greenhouse water use and reuse will also be covered. Finally, the use of ozone post-harvest to treat fruits and vegetables to improve shelf life and protect consumers will be discussed.
