Subject: Ozone filters/absorbers

I note that my laserjet III  printer has some sort of replaceable ozone
filter in it (nominal life is 50K pages, but it's probably a "power on
hours" factor as well). The filter obviously works (my printer reeks of
ozone now, and didn't when it was new)...

What are these filters made of? (activated charcoal?)
Where does one get them? How much do they cost? (in large sizes)
Wouldn't something like this be helpful in the TC lab (or garage, or
whatever) to get rid of the obnoxious ozone, which we all know isn't
healthy, either for us or for rubber parts. Sure, the ozone has some minimal
germicidal effect, but I'd really rather get rid of it all..

Even if you were to adapt one of the small  laser printer units into a RQ
style "blown static gap" it might help.
