Zeolites, a Hewin International Report, focuses on current and future markets for natural zeolites and synthetic zeolites. This original work based on extensive first-hand interviews and primary and secondary research is intended to guide executives, R&D managers, and investors to ground floor partnering, technology transfer, and investment opportunities. The Report explores developing applications for naturally occurring zeolites in categories such as pet litters, fertilizer aids, soil amendments, animal feed supplements, water treatments, and the removal of radioactive species and heavy metals from waste streams. Synthetic zeolites role as detergent builders, as petroleum refiners, and as petrochemical processing catalysts are also examined. Of course, the growing public sensitivity to environmental issues and the resulting ban on the use of phosphate builders has benefited the eco-friendly zeolites.
