ONA odour neutralising products consist of complex formulations representing a variety of chemical compounds offering different functionalities, both structural and chemical. The technology behind ONA was initiated over 25 years ago. The scientist (who was eventually credited with the invention of ONA) became fascinated when he observed that when terepenes were diffused into the environment, emission’s and odours were reduced. Inspired by this finding, further evidence showed that the odours were not just masked but permanently removed. The result was a set of specialized formulations that neutralise a wide spectrum of organic and inorganic odour problems – effectively, efficiently and permanently. ONA odour neutralisation formulations have been scientifically engineered to be environmentally safe. Manufactured under strict quality controls, the components of ONA are generally recognised as common in the food industry and have a long history of safety.
Terpenes are widespread in nature, mainly in plants as constituents of essential oils. Many terpenes are hydropocarbons, but oxygen-containing compounds such as alcohols, aldehydes or ketones (terpenoids) are also found. Their building block is the hydrocarbon isoprene, CH2=C(CH3)-CH=CH2*
*Isoprene Rule, Wallach 1887
Terpenes have anti-bacterial, anti-fungal and anti-septic properties.
Terpenes have oxygenating properties (increases oxygen level).
When diffused into the environment, terpenes have been found to reduce airborne chemicals and bacteria.
Terpene characteristics appear to either destroy the odour molecule or convert it to a more acceptable level.
