Use of clinoptilolite in industry and academia focuses on its ion exchange properties having a strong exchange affinity for ammonium (NH4+).
Feed grade zeolite is made from clinoptilite zeolite
Use of clinoptilolite in industry and academia focuses on its ion exchange properties having a strong exchange affinity for ammonium (NH4+). A typical example of this is in its use as an enzyme-based urea sensor. It is also used as fertiliser and sold as a deodorizer in the form of pebble-sized chunks contained in a mesh bag.
Research is generally focussed around the shores of the Aegean Sea due to the abundance of natural clinoptilolite in easily accessible surface deposits.
1.Feed grade Zeolite powder is mainly used as additive of feed. With adsorption property and ion exchange capacity, it can adsorb ammonia to slow the nutrition through alimentary canal and harmful substances in intestinal canal to improve digestion, as well as supplying several micro and macro elements for livestock to promote yield and weight increment and improve feed reward. It also can be used as agent for water quality to increase yield of aquatic animals, improve meat quality and create a favorable water environment. Additionally, Feed grade Zeolite powder can be used in cement and compound fertilizer.
