Zeolite is an organic mineral derived from the reaction of volcanic activity and an alkaline water source, either freshwater or saltwater. Zeolite material from a freshwater source to eliminate additional sodium being added to the equation. Zeolite is made up of a unique, crystalline lattice structure, naturally arranged in a fixed and stable honeycomb framework built from aluminosilicates.
Zeolite is one of nature’s rare minerals that possess a negative charge. The negatively charged alumina and neutrally charged silica tetrahedral building blocks are stacked to form the honeycomb framework.
" Zeolite has proven itself in the capture of heavy metals and prevention of heavy metal uptake by plants. Addition of Zeolite after the de-watering process will allow for use of nutrients in waste sludge while solving the issue of heavy metals. Zeolite will also capture the ammonia ions that cause odors and increase water infiltration to the root system of plants "
