Abstract

Information presented here focus on the sustainable commercial use of natural zeolites. Topics specifically covered include; (i) use of this natural mineral for remediation of contaminated sites and clean-up of spills, (ii) treatment and handling of animal/agricultural wastes considering recent climate change policies, (iii) management of wastewater treatment plant sludges to enable valuable product formation and prevention of formation of hazardous wastes. Reuse of spent zeolites and future trends in terms of their commercial use, together with potential limitations are also discussed.
