Applications and purchase of Greek zeolite, zeolite products and industrial minerals | Zeolife.gr
Zeolite is a porous, inactive, natural clay-silicate mineral rock. Zeolites can be found all over the world, especially in rocks that are partly or entirely of volcanic origin. This explains their frequent presence in geographical areas with volcanic activity such as Greece. They originate from the hydrothermal alteration of various aluminosilicate minerals, such as feldspars and feldspars.
Due to their molecular structure, they have a remarkably high ion exchange capacity (100 to 400 meq/100g) and regulate the pH of water and soils towards neutral. They act as a molecular sieve which binds heavy metals, toxins, free radicals, as they are among the least negatively charged minerals in nature. In addition, they have the ability to absorb water and other nutrients for living organisms, which they then release at a specific rate depending on environmental conditions. Because of this ability, they could be likened to ‘stone sponges’.
Our company operates in the application and sale of certified Greek natural zeolite and natural zeolite of European origin for all uses. From us you can also get perlite as well as Greek clay diatomite. The content of zeolite in clinoptilolite for agricultural and livestock use is at least 85% and is available in various grain sizes depending on its use.
Our aim is to disseminate the countless applications of these natural inert minerals, resulting in direct benefits from their properties in areas such as agriculture, livestock, the environment and human health. We ship same-day throughout Greece and the rest of Europe from our warehouse in Kalochori, Thessaloniki. We offer wholesale and retail prices. Contact us directly for advice and purchase.

Zeolite is like us, that’s why it cleanses the earth of the elements that disturb it, to help the growth of life without obstacles, because it is a mission, which is a goal and cannot be stopped, because water always touches the sea, to enhance the endless blue, to create the next world.

Zeolite in agriculture
Due to its unique properties, zeolite has many important applications in many fields, such as agriculture, livestock, fish farming, human health, construction, hydrocarbon industry, nuclear radiation protection and many others. More specifically, as far as agriculture is concerned, zeolite can be incorporated into the soil in the form of gravel.
As an excellent environmental asset manager, zeolite helps to increase production in crops and maximizes the quality of the agricultural products produced. The table below lists some of these species and the influence of zeolite in increasing their production.

Zeolite has also been used in greenhouses all over Greece and especially in the area of Nea Orestiada with spectacular results. Due to its properties it helps to save water and fertilizers, while it pushes plants to grow longer, faster and healthier, avoiding the use of heavy pesticides.
As a natural substance found naturally in the land, it can also be applied to organic farming, preserving its character and providing a cleaner land and fruits with a larger size and authentic taste, aroma and colour.
The geographical distribution of zeolite deposits in Greece is mainly in the Thrace region. The presence of clinoptilolite is particularly common in the rocks of northern Thrace, specifically in the Petrota area of Evros Prefecture.

Due to its properties, zeolite has many important applications in many fields such as agriculture, livestock, fish farming, health, construction, hydrocarbon industry, nuclear radiation protection and many others. More specifically, as far as agriculture is concerned, zeolite can be incorporated into the soil in the form of gravel and sprayed on the above-ground part of the plant or tree in the form of a very fine powder mixed in water.
Zeolite has also been found in other countries outside Greece, for example: Austria, Bulgaria, Bulgaria, USA, Japan, Jordan, Italy, China, Cuba, Romania, Slovakia, Slovakia, Turkey and USA.
No. Since zeolite binds with certain substances such as heavy metals from the soil, it inactivates them, not allowing them to interact with the environment. So the persistence in the soil does not harm its functioning and is continuing in the same way.
There are certified products of natural zeolite for human use. Each formulation is accompanied by instructions for use. The dosage ranges from 1 to 3 grams per day. It is also possible to use zeolite in cosmetics, for example in creams and face masks.MORE INFORMATION
The price of zeolite varies based on quantity, and grain size.
Zeolite in livestock farming
Natural zeolite can be added to the feed of animals, in the form of powder, at a rate of 2 to 2,5 % in their ration. It cleanses their digestive system of heavy metals, free radicals and toxins. Using 100 grams of zeolite per square metre on the floor of stables or other animal areas greatly reduces odours, as it absorbs and neutralises ammonia and hydrogen sulphide.
In the wider area of Petrota, Nea Orestiada, where natural zeolite is found in abundance, many stables and other buildings use this special stone as building material. Due to its antifungal property, it also protects the animal’s udders from disease, improving the quality and increasing the quantity of milk produced. Due to the absorption of ammonia and other harmful substances, the odourless manure can then be used as fertiliser.

Also, the use of zeolite in the breeding of goats at a rate of 2.5% in their ration, had as result the increase of weight, the birth in triplets and quadruplets and the significant increase in fat content in their milk.
