Science tries to duplicate and improve what Mother Nature performs. Ozone is no exception. Last month we looked at the UV Light (photo chemical) process of creating ozone. This month we’ll examine the carona discharge process.
With the crack of lightening and the roar of thunder, Mother Nature goes about her job of cleaning up our environment. Step outside after a thunderstorm and smell the sharp, clean crispness in the air. This is carona discharge of an enormous degree in a natural setting. A walk in the Sun, protected by the ozone layer in our atmosphere using some of the suns light waves (UV) to protect us from other more harmful sun rays is another natural way mother nature works with ozone to benefit all living species on Earth.

Laundry to Reduce Air Emmissions and Fund Cleaner Burning Wood Stove Purchases
BOSTON, Mass. — Alltex Uniform Rental Service, an industrial laundry in Manchester, N.H. has agreed to settle claims by the US Environmental Protection Agency that it violated the Clean Air Act by paying a civil penalty of $65,000. They will also be undertaking a Supplemental Environmental Project with a value of at least $220,000 to replace old, polluting wood stoves in southern New Hampshire with new, cleaner models. Additionally, the company will install equipment at its facility to remove approximately 20 tons per year of emissions of volatile organic compounds (“VOCs”). G&K Services is the parent company of Alltex Uniform Rental Service Inc. The EPA action grew out of an EPA inspection of the facility in July 2008.
