Pozone uses yellow phosphorus in water to generate Ozone for bleaching paper pulp, and in other applications where the presence of phospate "contamination" isn't an obstacle. International Paper is doing benchtests. Costs are estimated to be 1/2 to 1/3 (with credit for selling the phosphate by-product) that of electrically produced ozone. Another possible application--regenerating active carbon that's loaded with contaminants--could be done locally instead of at the very few licensed facilities.
