Porous crystalline solids used as a catalyst for efficient fuel processing, environmentally friendly air conditioning, green energy storage, waste filtering and emissions reduction.

About

British Zeolite Association - Zeolites are microporous crystalline solids with well-defined structures. Generally they contain silicon, aluminium and oxygen in their framework and cations, water and/or other molecules wthin their pores. Many occur naturally as minerals, and are extensively mined in many parts of the world. Others are synthetic, and are made commercially for specific uses, or produced by research scientists trying to understand more about their chemistry.

Applications

Catalysts for chemical reactions - crude oil cracking, fuel synthesis, methanol to gasoline (MTG)

Adsorption - air conditioning, hydrogen storage, solar energy storage, filtration

Ion Exchange - water softening

Environment - reducing toxic waste and energy consumption

Health - heavy metal detoxification

Companies

Ambaya Gold Zeolite - Ambaya Gold's unique ORME Zeolite™ Formula energizes and renews while assisting in the removal of heavy metals and other toxins. It's a powerful, yet safe formulation created to be much more than just a natural detox formula. ORME Zeolite™ supplies essential minerals, amino acids, enzymes, and other key ingredients which combine with the Zeolite to create a one of a kind Zeolite formula. It fuels and renews the body while safely removing the toxins that may be inhibiting your overall systemic function and health.

Zeo-Tech - Environmental friendly cooling and heating by using the innovative zeolite/water adsorption technology. Zeo-Tech has developed a new energy conversion process for the efficient generation and storage of heat and/or cooling power. Driven by a heat source, this process is solely based on the material zeolite and water and is therefore fully compatible with the most stringent environmental regulations.

Contained Energy - Zeolite cooling is especially suited for solar energy for several reasons: The process uses heat during charging, and releases heat when adsorbing, making it possible to a) store energy by ‘precharging’ Zeolite for later use, and, b) operate multiple units in tandem, with each unit continuously exchanging heat with the other. Relatively low heating temperatures are involved and only a ‘medium’ vacuum. Zeolite is cheap, safe, light, re-usable.

Waiora USA - Natural Cellular Defense: Zeolites are natural volcanic minerals with an unique, complex crystalline structure. It's honeycomb framework of cavities and channels (like cages) works at the cellular level trapping, heavy metals and toxins. In fact, because it is one of the few negatively charged minerals in nature, zeolites act as magnets drawing toxins to it, capturing them in its cage and removing them from the body.

PEP Filters - Process Efficiency Products has been a world leader in industrial fluid filtration. We offer a great deal of experience with a vast array of specialized media (carbon, anthracite, green sand and Zeolite. With a PEP Filter you will be able to maximize energy efficiency, extend equipment life and reduce maintenance.

Munters Zeol Division - Munters Zeol combined the hydrophobic zeolite technology with its HoneyCombe® rotor technology. A system was created that can operate continuously with constant adsorption and desorption, has a low pressure drop, and maximized the surface area. Munters is the world’s leading supplier of process systems using HoneyCombe® rotors for dehumidification, heat exchange, and Volatile Organic Compounds abatement.

eSupco - Zeolite is a molecular sieve that is used to dry out alcohol, specifically for ethanol fuel production. You need zeolite to finish removing the water from the ethanol that comes out of the still. The best any still can produce is 190 proof (95% ethanol and 5% water). The remaining 5% to 10% of water needs to be removed to make the ethanol ok to mix with gasoline.

Zeolite Membrane for Ethanol Dehydration - Mitsui Engineering will use a zeolite membrane in dehydration systems for bioethanol plants, to remove water from the ethanol produced. Only water passes through the membrane, thereby helping to reduce process fuel consumption by around 10% compared to other methods. (Green Car Congress Jul. 11, 2007)

Korean Scientists Create Magical Substance - A team of Korean scientists has created a new substance that can convert inexpensive intermediate crude oil to valuable gasoline in a very efficient fashion. They generated a new-type of zeolite that can be a petrochemical catalyst dozens of times more effective than today's norm. (The Korea Times August 07, 2006)

Zeolite refrigeration system supports fight against global warming - The new zeolite/water adsorption technology intends to demonstrate that it is possible to reduce the emissions of refrigerating gases and increase energy efficiency in the refrigeration sector using zeolite. Zeolite is non-poisonous, non-inflammable and is a natural product. Moreover, a zeolite system allows energy storage for long periods of time (several years) and due to its characteristics the refrigerating process may be started at any moment of that time period and on the other hand, it may also be interrupted again whenever wished. (Dometic S.à r.l. 2005)

New technology reduces noxious emissions - By combining an electrically charged gas with a specialized zeolite catalyst, researchers at the Department of Energy's Pacific Northwest National Laboratory have successfully reduced harmful oxides of nitrogen in a diesel engine by half. New hybrid, light-duty diesel engines, such as those used in passenger cars and small trucks, already can meet target fuel economy requirements and actually emit less of the "greenhouse gas" carbon dioxide than gasoline engines. However, unlike gasoline engines, there is no technology that can sufficiently reduce nitrogen oxides in the lean burn exhaust typical of diesel vehicles. (PNNL News April 23, 2001)
