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 ozone produced by the copier will damage and affect the respiratory system, nervous system, and immune system. It will also affect the development of fetuses and children, aggravate the condition of patients with cardiovascular diseases, etc. Therefore, effective measures need to be taken during the use of the copier. To reduce the harm of ozone to the human body.

Ozone can absorb ultraviolet rays in the stratosphere and protect life on earth. But near the ground, too high ozone concentration will harm human health, damage the atmospheric environment, and bring about a series of adverse effects. Therefore, removing ozone is a meaningful thing. There are many ways to filter ozone. Here are some common ones:

Honeycomb ozone removal filter is a filter in air purification equipment, usually made of aluminum honeycomb or other base materials, and loaded with metal catalysts, such as manganese oxide and rare earths. Its main function is to quickly decompose ozone in the air and convert it into oxygen, thereby achieving the effect of de-ozone.
