I.Z. Italiana Zeoliti Srl

Italiana Zeoliti S.r.l. was founded in 1991 to value Italian zeolities and its derivates and their usage in zootechnic, agricultural and animal care sector. natural zeolities The company produces natural zeolities , mixtures for animals feeding and litters for pets for large retailers.

After a deep study conducted by researchers of the University “Federico II” in Naples the attention focused on zeolitic volcanic tuff coming from Phlegraean Fields in Naples: Neapolitan Yellow Tuff (NYT) and Yellow Facies of Ignimbrite (CI). Both contain a quantity of Phillipsite and Chabazite equal to or greater than 50%, and compared to other similar Italian materials they losen toxic metals, in particular the Lead (Pb). For this reason, they completely respect the European regulation (2002/32/CE and its changes n. 744/2012) and are recognized as materials for animals feeding.

As it is known, zeolities are hydrated aluminosilicates of alkali metals and alkaline earth metals with specific properties like the cation-exchange capacity and adsorption. In particular the Phillipsite and Chabazite in the vulcanic tuff of region Campania are rich in Potassium as a consequence of the chemical composition of the volcanic precursor that from the petrographic point of view can be defined an alkali-trachyte born after a minerogenic post-depositional processes. The exchange capacity of these zeolities is around 3,5 ÷ 3,6 meq*g-1. This data makes them suitable for numerous technological applications, in particular in agriculture and zootechnics thanks to the presence of high levels of concentration of potassium among exchangeable cations.
