At present,  office automation is becoming more and more popular. Many offices have a large number of office equipment such as computers, laser printers (including copiers) and fax machines. Some of them will produce  ozone and odor during work. With the enhancement of people's awareness of environmental protection, office workers are paying more and more attention to whether the odor produced by laser printers (including copiers) equipment, including ozone, will affect health.

Laser printers use the principle of corona discharge to charge the toner cartridge and absorb the toner for imaging. During this process, the high-voltage charge ionizes the oxygen in the air to generate ozone. In the process of toner fixing, high temperature promotes the volatilization of organic components in ink and paper, resulting in total volatile organic compound (TVOC) pollution and fine particles condensed by volatile organic compounds. Due to the small size of the office, lack of air circulation, and the close distance between office workers and printers, pollutants generated during the use of printers tend to accumulate indoors, posing a certain threat to the health of office workers.
In recent years, studies have shown that laser printers are a major source of ultrafine particulate matter, ozone, and volatile organic compounds in indoor environments. Therefore, removing the ozone after the laser printer works and achieving zero ozone emission is an important part of promoting green office, and it is also an important measure to protect the health of office personnel and support environmental protection.

The COVID-19 pandemic has brought heightened attention to air quality indoor . People are thinking about how these invisible virus particles can spread indoors. However, the hazards of the indoor environment are not just the virus that causes the epidemic. According to WHO, air pollution is the world's greatest environmental health threat. Many people have always believed that ozone in the air is a double-edged sword. It has the side of sterilizing and inactivating viruses, but also has the side of endangering human health. Modern research suggests that ozone in indoor air has risen to be one of the most important pollutants.
