Zeolite Industrial Applications

The natural green properties of zeolite lend themselves to a number of Green Tech industrial applications. Zeolite is used throughout a number of industrial applications such as artificial turf infill, municipal composting, fly ash replacement in cement production, waste remediation, water treatment and many more.

Zeolite’s pointed mineral granules don’t melt or dissolve like salt. Depending on the volume of commercial site traffic, the granules may break down over the winter. However, in many cases, zeolite helps provide traction throughout the winter and can melt ice.

Zeolite Applications Within Industry

agriculture
Waste Remediation

Natural zeolite’s ability to bind with different elements that make up hydrocarbons and radioactive isotopes offers a significant advantage over other remediating agents. Those who want to be proactive in their waste treatment efforts can leverage zeolite’s natural properties to clean up their sites efficiently and at a lower cost.

Water Filtration & Treatment

Zeolite’s high cation exchange capacity can replace positive ions in the water, such as dissolved metals, sodium, or ammonia, and with its high pore density, zeolite can do so more efficiently and at higher concentrations. This applies to general water treatment, agriculture, aquaculture, horticulture, and more

Artificial Turf Infill

As a non-scented odour neutralizer, zeolite’s absorption and adsorption properties capture and eliminate everyday odours common with artificial turf. Zeolite’s pointed mineral granules also don’t dissolve or deteriorate, making it the preferred choice of turf infill for sports fields, landscape turf, and pet grass. Zeolite turf infill is safe for children, pets, and the environment, unlike other artificial turf infills.

Traction Control

Zeolite has sharp micro edges, a large surface area, multiple contact points, and a rigid structure making zeolite the ultimate traction agent for winter conditions. Zeolite retains its structure on ice and snow, lasting much longer than any ice melter that helps prevent slip & falls.

Construction

As a natural pozzolan, zeolite acts as a suitable replacement for a certain percentage of Portland cement production and usage. Zeolite can contribute to greener construction practices, contributing to sustainable industry. Our mines and supply relationships are well-equipped to support the construction industry’s increasing demand for SCMs.
