AbstractA Turkish SME dealing with natural zeolite is offering its expertise and know-how on applications of naturally negatively charged zeolite. The Turkish SME is a natural zeolite producer with %95 pure Clinoptilolite ratio and has know how on zeolite applications at various sectors. The company is seeking partners to develop new industrial applications for natural zeolites and wants to share its know-how for new zeolite projects.
DetailsZeolite is a crystalline mineral capable of adsorbing and absorbing many different types of gases, moisture, petrochemicals, heavy metals, low-level radioactive elements and a multitude of various solutions. The channels in the zeolite provide large surface areas on which chemical reactions can take place. The cavities and channels within the crystal can occupy up to 50% of its volume. Zeolite can adsorb or absorb large amounts of materials, such as ions or gas molecules.
Zeolite has a wide range of applications:
* Water filtration
* Heavy metal removal
* Swimming pools
* Ammonia in municipal sludge
* Heavy metal removal
* Septic leach fields
* Odour control
* Confined animal environmental control
* Livestock feed additives
* Nurseries, Greenhouses
* Tree and shrub transplanting
* Turf grass soil amendment
* Reclamation, revegetation, landscaping
* Silviculture (forestry, tree plantations)
* Medium for hydroponic growing
* Household odour control
* Pet odour control
* Absorbents for oil and spills
* Gas separations
* Site remediation/decontamination
* Ammonia filtration in fish hatcheries
* Bio filter media
The company can provide additional value to the projects with their knowledge and experience about natural zeolites and its different applications in industry.
Zeolite, with its negatif charge can be used as a heavy metal binder in several sectors and currently it has an important role at environmental applications since it is an envrionment friendly and cheap natural mineral. The Turkish company upon its experiences with own formulations and different sectors, to which it provides raw products, has the know-how regarding novel utilizations of zeolite as well as common applications.
