Zeolite Has Many Uses

From industrial catalysts to domestic pet care, zeolite’s properties make this a very diverse material that can be utilized for multiple purposes. According to the International Zeolite Association, 206 unique zeolite frameworks have been identified and over 40 naturally occurring frameworks are known. For ages zeolite materials have been used in common house hold items, agricultural products and medical components. Zeolite materials are also used in response to catastrophic situations, such as the 2011 Fukushima Daiichi nuclear disaster, according to a New York Times article.

Because zeolite has a porous molecular structure, it can be utilized primarily either as an absorbing agent or a catalyst. According to Merriam Webster, a catalyst is a substance used to speed up a chemical reaction.

Zeolite has many different functions and serves a plethora of purposes as a beneficial and all-natural substance. Listed below are some common zeolite uses:

Domestic and commercial water purification.

Gas separation, specifically gases removed from water, carbon dioxide and sulfur dioxide.

Removes nitrogen from On-Board Oxygen Generating Systems compress air in order to supply oxygen to aircrews that fly planes at high altitudes.

Removal of nuclear waste.

Absorbs radioactive materials, such as caesium resulting from the 2011 Fukushima Daiichi nuclear disaster.

Biogas Industry: Long-term storage of energy.

Solar thermal collectors.

Laundry detergent.

Additive for asphalt concert (helps to decrease temperature levels and also decreases fossil fuels).

Purifies oxygen for oxygen concentrators.

Helps stop severe bleeding, known as zeolite hemostat.

Used in soil treatments and will slowly release water, potassium or nitrogen.

Aquarium filter additives, absorbs ammonia and other nitrogen compounds.

Non-clumping cat litter.

Whether you are applying zeolite as infill or using it to treat soil or even a severe wound, there is a uniquely designed zeolite material that will aid in each of the applications listed above.
