      size of the holes in our “bucket” of ozone. The larger holes cause ozone to leak out at a faster rate than ozone is being created. Consequently, the level of ozone protecting us from ultraviolet radiation decreases. The ozone destroyed by manmade emissions is comparable or more than the amount de-stroyed by natural processes. In the United States, pioneering efforts have been made over the past 20 years to develop the technology of wastewater disinfection with ozone. More than 45 sewage treatment plants in the U.S.A. have installed ozone systems, most for disinfection since the early s, although only 25 of these plants use high purity oxygen for feeding the.

Nationally, average ozone levels declined in the 's, leveled off in the 's, and showed a notable decline after The charts below show national and regional trends in ozone concentrations. For information on ozone standards, sources, health effects, and programs to reduce ozone, Ozone protection in the United States book see our Ground-level Ozone Pollution page.

EPA Enforcement Efforts InCongress amended the Clean Air Act with Title VI, with provisions for protecting the ozone layer ozone layer The region of the stratosphere containing the bulk of atmospheric ozone.

The ozone layer lies approximately kilometers ( miles) above the Earth's surface, in the stratosphere. National Ambient Air Quality Standards (NAAQS) for ground-level ozone, or ozone pollution, specify a maximum allowed measurement for ozone (O 3) to be present in outdoor air. Limiting ozone pollution in the air protects human health and the environment.

In JulyEPA proposed to retain the current ozone standards set in The injector contacting method is commonly used in Europe, Canada and also in the United States.

Ozone is injected into a water stream under negative pressure, which is generated in a venturi section, as shown in Fig. thereby pulling the ozone into the water many cases, a sidestream of the total flow is pumped to a higher pressure to increase the available vacuum for ozone.

The standard used was that of the United States Environment Protection Agency norms. The city-wide maximum average of ozone in Gurugram. The EPA Green Book provides detailed information about area National Ambient Air Quality Standards (NAAQS) designations, classifications and nonattainment status.

The program looks at overall risks to human health and the environment of existing and new substitutes, publishes lists and promotes the use of acceptable substances, and provides the public with information.

He is also the godfather of ozone therapy in the United States. He has published the only book on ozone therapy for medical professionals in the Unites States, The Principles and Applications of Ozone Therapy, as well as several other books describing how oxygen heals.

Ten case studies reveal how economic incentives, entrepreneurial government activities, corporate leadership and competition -- as well as scientific advances and public activism -- made significant contributions to the adoption of CFC. A report by the U. Environmental Protection Agency estimates that the protection of the ozone layer under the treaty will prevent over million cases of skin cancer, million skin cancer deaths, and 45 million cataracts in the United States.

Ozone therapy should only be used by professionals who have been fully trained in its use. Doctors who want such training can receive it from Dr. Shallenberger, who offers training sessions twice a year in the United States and internationally. Autotherapy is the most common, and in most cases the most effective way ozone is administered.

In the United States alone, ground-level ozone is responsible for an estimated $ million in reduced crop production each year. Ground-level ozone also damages the foliage of trees and other plants, affecting the landscape of cities, national parks and forests, and recreation areas.

You should also be familiar with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) guide for ozone-alert values.Ozone therapy is an alternative medical treatment that introduces ozone or ozonides to the body.

In Aprilthe United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) prohibited all medical uses of ozone, "In any medical condition for which there is no proof of safety and effectiveness", stating "Ozone is a toxic gas with no known useful medical application in specific, adjunctive, or preventive.
