Zeolites have a limitless potential in their application and in their ability to contribute to a
cleaner and safer environment. Zeolites not only safeguard the environment by their diversified
applications, but can also be synthesized from a variety of waste products. Over the last 40 years
synthetic zeolites have been produced on a commercial scale (eg. A, X, Y, L, P, ZSM-5). Recent
research has paid more attention to turning wastes into more value added products. Their potential
abilities depend on whether they can be synthesized according to their properties.
The technology of synthesizing zeolite from wastes is comprised three steps: the dissolution
step of Si4+ and Al3+ in waste materials, the condensation step of silicate and aluminate ions in
alkali solution to make aluminosilicate gel, and the crystallization step of aluminosilicate gel to
make zeolite crystal. The raw materials include discharge from an optical fiber manufacturing, slag
from iron smelting plants, waste from glass manufacturing plants, fly ash, paper sludge and oil
shale ash. The aluminum-containing waste may be added to enhance the Si/Al ratio for a select type
of zeolite. The aluminum-containing waste can be selected from the group consisting of aluminum
dross, aluminum dust collection ash, crystalline aluminum hydroxide sludge, aluminum cleaning
waste liquid, aluminum alloy cleaning waste liquid, metal aluminum scrap, aluminum alloy scrap,
and alumina scrap.
In this chapter, recent technologies on synthesis of zeolite derived from various industrial
wastes are described. Parameters affecting the high crystallinity of the synthesis product including
the rate of crystallization, induction period, and heating rates will be presented in the text. The
synthesis products obtained are characterized by XRD and SEM. Conventional and microwave
heating treatments are described in comparison.
