Fish naturally produce ammonia as they eat, which may rapidly pollute an enclosed aquatic environment. Because of its high cation exchange capability, ZEOLITHOS can absorb and bind ammonia in controlled conditions like fish farming, fish aquarium, and fish transportation. Ammonia levels can vary and pose a danger to bacterial populations. Using ZEOLITHOS may help reduce the consequences of such variations and contribute to long-term positive bacterial activity.
ZEOLITHOS’s affinity for specific types of nitrogen may also produce oxygen-rich air for water system aeration. Zeolite’s capacity to filter very tiny suspended particles also contributes to the reduction of turbidity, resulting in cleaner, healthier water. When ZEOLITHOS is used as a substrate in biological filters, it gives the bacteria needed to turn ammonia into ammonium a place to grow and stay alive.
Feeds and livestock
- ZEOLITHOS as an environmental solution for CAFOs
Concentrated Animal Feeding Operations (CAFOs) are agricultural facilities where animals are confined and grown for meat, dairy, or eggs. Pollutants in the air and the release of wastewater are two of the most critical problems facing CAFOs today. These problems have severe regulatory and financial consequences.
By adding ZEOLITHOS to the feed ration, hazardous substances are bound in the gastrointestinal system, and their uncontrolled escape into the environment is reduced. Using ZEOLITHOS in livestock feed has a secondary positive effect on animal waste and the direct benefit of lowering CAFO emissions. Composting animal manure with zeolites high in Clinoptilolite can become a valuable natural fertilizer. This can help CAFOs with environmental and financial concerns by turning a significant liability (manure disposal) into a useful product.
The use of ZEOLITHOS in animal feed supplements improves the health of the animals, lowers the number of animals mortality, improves their performance, helps ensure the feed is safe, and controls the amount of ammonia and nitrogen that they give off.
- ZEOLITHOS as an environmental solution for Dairy Farms
A severe challenge for dairy farms is the increasing number of operational rules for smells, ground and surface water pollution, and heavy metals in manure. These things, like disposal costs, environmental regulations, and the need to replace essential nutrients that have been lost, significantly affect the finances of dairy operations.
Feed containing ZEOLITHOS reduces the number of hazardous substances that enter the system and are then excreted into the environment. Using ZEOLITHOS in livestock feed significantly affects animal waste and immediately lowers dairy emissions and heating and ventilation needs. Composting animal manure with clinoptilolite-rich zeolites can turn it into a valuable natural fertilizer that is even better than before. This can help dairy farmers with both environmental and financial problems.
Lastly, using ZEOLITHOS in animal feed helps sustainable agricultural systems turn waste products into a valuable resource since it captures and retains essential components throughout digestion. Because of the quality and balance of the final product, it may be possible to use it at higher rates, which means less waste disposal costs and less need for commercial ammonia fertilizer.
The smell of manure is one of the most common complaints about the poultry barn. The ammonia concentration in poultry houses contributes to the odor, but it can also be detrimental to both the birds and the personnel who frequent the barn. This ammonia is not produced directly by the birds but results from the breakdown of nitrogen into uric acid. Warm temperatures, moist conditions, a neutral or slightly alkaline pH, and organic matter all promote bacterial growth and the generation of ammoniacal nitrogen, all of which are common in poultry waste treatment systems.
A small quantity of ZEOLITHOS added to the birds’ feed, bedding, or applied topically to their excrement reduces ammonia levels substantially. Its benefits include a decrease in chicken mortality, an increase in the number of gradable eggs and shell thickness, and an increase in the plant-accessible nitrogen content of manure and compost, preventing nitrogen imbalance and a reduction in phosphate, resulting in greater benefits for operations that are fertilized.
The expense of odor management, wastewater disposal, and manure applications are all significant economic challenges for the piggery and swine sector.Read More
ZEOLITHOS is a cost-effective solution to numerous ecological problems that have the potential to yield increased productivity. Many other proposed remedies for these critical issues involve using capital-intensive technology, either economically unattainable or inefficient for most producers, no matter how big or small they may be.
Incorporating ZEOLITHOS into feeding regimens or dumping it into waste storage areas like pits and lagoons could help with waste management, animal health, and cutting costs on feed.
Due to its unique chemical makeup and properties, ZEOLITHOS may be used to clean municipal water supplies, sewage effluent, biological wetlands, industrial and mining wastewater discharge, swimming pools, and spa water at a cheap cost without compromising the environment.
ZEOLITHOS works as a filter medium to help remove even minute quantities of ammonium ions from spa or pool water via a process known as cation exchange, in which the ammonium forms chemical bonds with the zeolite molecules.
The industry offers a wide variety of mineral materials for use as fillers. However, other from serving as filler, the majority of these minerals have no further advantages. When employed as a filler, the remarkable qualities of natural zeolite material enable value-added goods. It functions as a particular catalyst or stabilizing component rather than merely as a filler.
ZEOLITHO’s absorption properties allow particular characteristics in the finished items, such as absorbing scents and unwelcome gases within the product or around it. Its physical and mechanical characteristics provide the finished products with unique qualities including strength, flexibility, and resistance to various stresses, most notably heat, abrasion, and corrosion. ZEOLITHOS may also save manufacturing costs by reducing the requirement for special agents when used as a filler. Compared to other fillers, it has a financial benefit. It is an ecologically friendly and non-toxic substance. It lessens the emission of unwanted compounds that arise during manufacturing and guards against their damaging effects on the environment and human health.
Home and hobby product line
In-home applications for ZEOLITHOS include mold and mildew inhibitors, cat litter, spill clean-up, and indoor odor management. Zeolite may be utilized in a variety of places, such as HVAC vents, carpets, rugs, and upholstery, restrooms, laundry rooms, and nurseries, as well as gym lockers and closets, refrigerators, and freezers.
Any surface may be treated immediately with ZEOLITHOS, and a vacuum will quickly remove it. Pet hair, dander, and other particles may also be electrostatically attracted to zeolite particles and removed using this method. Adsorption of oils and other liquids is also possible without affecting or fading the color of the cloth.

Plant care (SOILITH)
SOILITH (zeolite-enriched soil) produces crops and grass that develop more quickly and with greater yields. SOILITH enables more effective utilization of the minerals already present in the soil, resulting in fewer fertilizer and water needs as well as less fertilizer leaking into groundwater. These benefits are achieved by adsorbing ammonium, buffering the soil, and reducing toxicity.
SOILITH lowers the cost of protecting crops and grass with pricey pesticides and herbicides by encouraging stronger and healthier plants. The usage of SOILITH in organic agriculture is also permitted, and it is entirely natural.
- Snugz and Fresh Cat Litters
The zeolite may be used alone or in combination with additional chemicals to produce clumping qualities. It has a high capacity for cation exchange and water absorption. It eliminates ammonia and unpleasant smells significantly more efficiently than clumping litters due to cation exchange. Furthermore, it absorbs urine entirely and eliminates dampness from the litter box due to its water retention ability. Bacteria, parasites, and mites are all inhibited by zeolite.
Snugz and Fresh Cat litter is simple to use and easy to dispose of. It has a very extended tray life. Most cats prefer non-clumping cat litter because they are not bothered by the hard clumped litter in the box. The sticky characteristics of clumping litter cause litter to adhere to cats’ paws and generate a lot of commotion around the litter box. Furthermore, the cat often licks his paws and consumes the icky stuff in the litter. Snugz and Fresh Cat litter does not adhere to paws or furs since it lacks clumping properties.
