There is no "absorbing" ozone. A thiosulfate will quench it. Indigo trisulfonate will be bleached by it (allowing determination of ozone concentration in solution). A zeolite can adsorb it, to be released upon pressure swing. There is some apocryphal evidence that it can be stored for long periods (months to years) in a vegetable oil matrix, at some significant risk.

Ozone is an allotrope of oxygen. It protects us by absorbing the UV rays.

Ozone helps in absorbing the UV rays. It is getting depleted.
