Application and purchase of natural zeolite and Greek diatomite | Zeolife.gr

Zeolite is a porous natural aluminosilicate mineral rock. Zeolites occur as geological reserves around the world, especially in rocks that partially or in their entirety have volcanic origins. This explains the frequent presence in geographical areas with volcanic activity. They derive from the hydrothermal alteration of various aluminosilicate minerals such as feldspar and feldspathoid covering mostly small cavities, cracks and joints basaltic lavas and less commonly granites and gneisses.

Because of its molecular structure it shows a remarkably high ion exchange capacity (100 to 400 meq/100g) and regulates the PH of water and soil to neutral. It acts as a molecular sieve which binds to heavy metals, toxins, free radicals, while it is one of the few negatively charged minerals in nature. Furthermore it has the ability to absorb water and other nutritive substances for living organisms, which then releases in a particular rate depending on the environmental conditions. Because of this ability could be likened to a “sponge stone”.

Our company handles the application and purchase of certified natural zeolite of European origin and diatomite of Greek origin. The content of clinoptilolite in zeolite is at least 85% and is available in various grain sizes depending on its use. Our aim is to spread the countless applications of this “magic rock” resulting in direct benefit of its properties in areas such as agriculture, livestock, environment and public health. We ship worldwide from our warehouses in Thessaloniki and in Nea Orestiada, in wholesale and retail prices. Contact us.

Zeolite in agriculture

Due to its properties, natural zeolite has many important applications in many areas such as agriculture, livestock, fisheries, public health, construction, the hydrocarbons industry, protection against nuclear radiation and many others. Specifically, in agriculture, natural zeolite may be incorporated in the soil in the form of gravel and sprayed on the above ground part of the plant or the tree in a form of a fine powder admixed in water, depending on the type of crop.

Zeolite as an excellent environmental manager, helps to increase production in crops and maximizes the quality of the produced agricultural products. The table below shows certain types agricultural products and the influence of zeolite increasing their production.

Natural zeolite is used in greenhouses throughout Greece and especially in the area of New Orestiada with spectacular results. Due to its properties, it saves water and fertilizers and helps the plants grow more quickly and healthier avoiding the use of heavy pesticides.

As a natural substance that is unchanged and present in the earth, it may be applied to an organic culture maintaining its characterization and providing a cleaner soil. It also stimulates larger products with authentic flavor, aroma and colors.

The geographical distribution of natural zeolite reserves in Greek area is mainly located in regions of Thrace. The presence of clinoptilolite is especially common in the strata of Northern Thrace namely that of Northern Evros.

FAQ

What's a zeolite?

Zeolite is a porous natural aluminosilicate mineral rock.

How was it created?

Zeolites occur as geological reserves around the world, especially in rocks that partially or in their entirety have volcanic origins. This explains the frequent presence in geographical areas with volcanic activity. They derive from the hydrothermal alteration of various aluminosilicate minerals such as feldspar and feldspathoid covering mostly small cavities, cracks and joints basaltic lavas and less commonly granites and gneisses.

Where can it be found?

The geographical distribution of natural zeolite reserves in Greek area is mainly located in many regions of Thrace. These are mainly deposits formed by the transformation of pyroclastic rocks in open hydrological systems. The presence of clinoptilolite is especially common in the strata of Northern Thrace namely that of Northern Evros.

What other countries produce natural zeolite?

Natural Zeolite has been also detected in other countries outside Greece, namely in Austria, Bulgaria, USA, Japan, Jordan, Italy, China, Cuba, Romania, Slovakia and Turkey.

What characteristics play a role in applications?

The main characteristics of natural zeolite that play a role in applications is the granulometry, the content of clinoptilolite and the impuritie with other elements.

How is it applied in agriculture?

In agriculture, it can be used either in fine powder form, for spraying with water, either in the form of gravel near the root sphere.

Has its influence been measured on agricultural products?

Yes it has been measured. The influence of the use of natural zeolite to agricultural products depends on several factors. The table of the homepage is referred to certain species, the influence of zeolite in increase of their production and the corresponding region.

Is it compatible with the use of fertilizers?

Yes, natural zeolite can be used both in organic and conventional crops that make use of chemical fertilizers.

Is it compatible with organic farming methods?

As a natural substance that is unchanged and present in the earth may be applied to a biological culture keeping its characterization and providing a cleaner soil. It also stimulates larger products with authentic flavor, aroma and color.

Can it be used in greenhouses?

Zeolite has been used in greenhouses with spectacular results. Due to its properties it helps to save water and fertilizers, while it helps plants to grow more, faster and healthier.

After zeolite has cleansed the soil, should it be removed?

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.

How is it applied to livestock farming?

Natural zeolite can be added to animal feed in powder form, 2% in their feed rations. It cleanses the peptic system from heavy metals, free radicals and toxins. At the same time, it can be used on the floor of the animal’s living area as it disinfects and absorbs unpleasant odors from the atmosphere.

How does it affect the environment and human health?

Zeolite presents many important positive effects for both the environment and the health of the organisms. It is a rock that does not react chemically with other substances and thus is not assimilated by organisms. It cleans the environment by neutralizing the harmful substances. In living organisms it goes through the digestive system and cleanses in depth from heavy metals, toxins and free radicals. Zeolite intended for human use must be properly tested and contain at least 95% of clinoptilolite content.

How does it apply to pharmaceuticals?

There are certified natural zeolite formulations for human use. Each formulation is accompanied by instructions for use. The dosage ranges from 1 to 3 gr per day. Also, there is the possibility of using zeolite in cosmetics, for example in creams and face masks.

Zeolite in livestock

Zeolite can be added to the feed of the animals in a powder form, at a rate of 2 to 2.5% in their ration. It cleanses their digestive system from heavy metals, free radicals and toxins. It greatly reduces odors after absorbing and neutralizing ammonia, using 100 grams of zeolite per square meter on the floor of stall or other areas with animals.

In the wider area of Petrota new Orestiada, where the natural zeolite is in abundance, many stables and other buildings have zeolite as building material. Due to its antifungal status, it also protects the breasts of animals from diseases, improving quality and increasing the amount of milk produced. Because of the absorption of ammonia and other harmful substances, the odorless manure can then be used as fertilizer.

Table of natural zeolite effect in animal nutrition

Cows - dairy production increase

17%

Poultry - increasing nitrogen in manure

6%

Poultry - Reducing ammonia loss

55%

Poultry - Increased weight and spawning

7%

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.
