Aqueous ozone has been used for over 100 years. In 1914, Nice, France began using aqueous ozone to clean its public water system. Today aqueous ozone has been advanced to Tersano’s Stabilized Aqueous Ozone and is used by world class organizations like Stanford University, Colorado Convention Center, Toronto Pearson International Airport, Google, Microsoft, McDonald’s, Kimberly Clark, AETNA, Domino’s Pizza, HSBC Financial, Pepsi, Nestle, and much more. Created and manufactured in Canada, Tersano simply took the processes used every day in governments and businesses around the world, applied innovation to create the technology to be generated onsite and on-demand, and offered it as a daily solution to clean, sanitize, and deodorize.
