Natural zeolites are the least-known treasures for industrial applications, environmental
pollution control, separation science and technology. Natural zeolites are volcanic minerals
with unique characteristics. Their chemical structure classifies them as hydrated
aluminosilicates, comprised of hydrogen, oxygen, aluminum, and silicon, arranged in an
interconnecting lattice structure. The arrangement of these elements in a zeolite crystal gives
rise to a honeycomb framework with consistent diameter connecting channels that vary in
size from 2.5 to 5.0 angstroms, depending on the type of zeolite mineral. This unique
structure makes zeolites different from "other" aluminosilicates (kaolin, bentonite, etc.) due to
the following special properties: the ability to selectively adsorb molecules of gases and
vapors, the ability to reversibly absorb/desorb water without any chemical or physical change
in the zeolite matrix and the ability to exchange inherent cations for other cations on a basis
of ion selectivity.
The present chapter is an up-to-date review of the utilization of natural zeolites in
environmental-related applications and more specifically in the field of wastewater treatment
and solid waste treatment. The review will present the current status and future developments
in basic research as well as in the commercial applications.
