Zeolite is one of the most common and most valuable minerals in the world. Zeolites are widely used in a variety of industries such as
Natural zeolite is an environmentally friendly sorbent, superior to activated carbon in its qualities due to enhanced adsorption and ion exchange.
This property of zeolite makes it popular in animal husbandry, agriculture, as well as in water purification (sewage treatment and water basins, water purification in an aquarium, use in filters for water purification)
In animal husbandry, natural zeolite is used as a mineral feed additive to strengthen the immune system, normalize metabolism, and prevent gastrointestinal diseases. It contributes to the appearance and preservation of healthy offspring, ensures healthy growth, strength and restoration of the protective abilities of the organism of animals.
Zeolite effectively contributes to higher yields. This mineral retains water in itself, perfectly aerates the soil, stimulates the development of the root system of plants, prolongs the action of fertilizers, primarily nitrate, phosphate, potash, and other nutrients.
Zeolite has an unusually wide range of applications in industry. It is widely used in petrochemistry, as a desiccant of gases and media, for purifying drinking and industrial waters, for removing radionuclides and deironing water, as well as in construction. With the help of zeolite produce decontamination of solid surfaces, soils, for example at nuclear power plants.
Zeolites are capable of ion and cation exchange, and therefore, when added to the soil composition for flowers, they contribute to the conservation of Mg2 +, Ca2 +, K + cations for 2-3 years. Zeolite contains potassium, calcium, magnesium, boron, zinc, manganese, molybdenum, silicon in a form accessible to the plant. Zeolite granules mixed with soil increase its porosity, prevent particles from sticking together (cementing the soil), and therefore increase access to oxygen roots. Due to the high drainage of the soil provides better root formation. Zeolite in the composition of soil mixtures for cacti and succulents allows you to maximize the structure of the soil to the requirements of these plants. Regulates the moisture capacity of the soil, reduces the frequency of watering and prevents overdrying (to a certain extent).The acidity of zeolite is optimal for plants pH 5.5-5.6.
Natural zeolite works as a soil conditioner. Due to its ability to absorb and retain moisture, as well as its high ion-exchange capacity, natural zeolite creates the most favorable conditions in the soil for the absorption of nutrients by plants. Preventing leaching of mineral fertilizers from the arable layer, zeolite reduces their losses and total consumption, and also reduces the process of salinization of the soil. Zeolite promotes soil aeration, retention of a sufficient amount of water in the root zone, intensive development of the root system and improved plant growth. The ion-exchange properties of natural zeolite can reduce the level of various toxic substances in the soil, including pesticides and heavy metals, and, accordingly, reduce their content in the final product. In addition to mass application on farm fields when cultivating field crops, zeolite gives excellent results when used in greenhouses and household plots where vegetable and fruit crops are grown. The same results are true for indoor plants. Due to its beneficial properties, zeolite is used to create “green roofs”, lawns, golf courses and other sports.
