SAO’s Sustainability in 4 Key Points
Tersano is changing the way the world cleans by replacing toxic chemicals with sustainable cleaning technologies.
Our patented technology converts ordinary tap water into a simple, safe, and sustainable solution called Stabilized Aqueous Ozone (SAO®), an all-in-one sanitizing cleaner that kills up to 99.999% of germs without harsh chemicals.
With an SDS rating of 0-0-0 and certifications from world-renowned regulatory bodies, Tersano's SAO helps families and businesses alike reinvent what cleaning means.
Keep reading to learn more about SAO’s sustainability and how Tersano harnesses the power of SAO to make the world a safer place.
1. SAO Does Not Pollute the Air
With chemical pollution at an all-time high, it is no longer enough for businesses to retroactively respond to the crisis; instead, we must prune the problem at the root through proactive prevention. One way to prevent more toxic chemicals from entering the environment is to employ innovative alternatives to our daily tasks in which they are used, like cleaning.
As one of the world's only sanitizing cleaners with an SDS rating of 0-0-0, Tersano's Stabilized Aqueous Ozone contains no toxic chemicals, VOCs, QACs, or other harmful ingredients you may find in traditional cleaning products. Instead of harsh chemicals, SAO is created with science, the natural ozone in the air, and technology.
As an all-in-one cleaner, sanitizer, and deodorizer, Tersano has helped businesses across critical industries replace up to 90% of their traditional cleaning products with Stabilized Aqueous Ozone. By harnessing the power of prevention, we have kept over 672,000,000 liters of traditional chemicals out of the environment since our founding in 2001!
2. SAO Helps Reduce Carbon Emissions
It's not breaking news that vehicle emissions largely contribute to climate change, but did you know that the cleaner you use can make a difference?
Traditional cleaning chemicals that come in bottles (or barrels) eventually run out. When the time comes to replenish inventory, products must travel from the seller to the buyer. The trade and transportation of these cleaning chemical containers contribute to the carbon emissions in our environment.
What's more, some supply chains are more complex than direct seller-to-buyer transactions. The transportation of cleaning chemicals may include a supply chain that goes from the producer to the packager, the distributor, and other checkpoints before finally resolving to the buyer. As chemical products change more and more hands, a longer and longer trail of carbon emissions ensue.
For commercial use, Tersano's revolutionary on-site generation dramatically curtails the supply chain, reducing carbon emissions and helping businesses achieve net zero goals. With Tersano’s technologies, no middleman is required; all you need is a cold water source and an electrical outlet to produce Stabilized Aqueous Ozone on-site and on demand.
For home use, we additionally offset carbon emissions of deliveries with our integrated Shop Pay option. Shop Pay is a revolutionary and secure payment option that carbon neutralizes deliveries by planting trees and rebuilding natural habitats for every order shipped.

3. SAO Does Not Pollute Waters
Stabilized Aqueous Ozone is noncontributing to the chemical pollution surmounting in our lakes, rivers, oceans, and even freshwater sources.
After SAO finishes interacting with the dirt and germs on your surfaces, it reverts to ordinary, ozone-less water and oxygen. Thus, if you were to pour SAO down the drain, it would not introduce any foreign or harsh chemicals to your local waterways, nor would they accumulate in groundwater runoffs and eventually our oceans.
As a sanitizing cleaner that's free of toxic chemicals and safe for people and marine life equally, replacing harmful cleaning chemicals with sustainable Stabilized Aqueous Ozone is better for our waters and the life within them.
4. SAO Helps Reduce Plastic Waste
Plastic bottled cleaning products contribute to the buildup of plastic waste in our landfills and oceans. Plastic waste is toxic to almost every facet of the environment, strangling plant life, releasing harmful chemicals into soils, littering our oceans, and being mistaken as food by wildlife.
Tersano's systems were designed with zero-waste in mind to decrease the amount of plastic in our environment. Not only do our products come in recyclable packaging, but they also eliminate the need to buy single-use bottles of cleaning products repeatedly. With Tersano's dispensers, Stabilized Aqueous Ozone is readily available, saving you time, money, energy, and the planet from plastic waste.
After your device reaches the end of its performance lifetime, Tersano will happily accept it back to be restored, refurbished, and renewed. Our replacement cartridges are 100% recyclable, making Tersano's products and processes closed-loop and circulatory.
Tersano ensures that every controllable aspect that goes into our products and services supports our commitment to sustainability. Our good manufacturing practices demonstrate corporate and social responsibility at every benchmark, with certifications from world-leading governmental bodies supporting our mission through-and-through.
