Due to the properties mentioned above, zeolite is used extensively in the chemical industry; in biochemistry mainly as an ion exchanger.

Due to their large cavities, they are able to bind and transport various chemical elements. Here are a few examples from industry:

used in sewage treatment plants and in groundwater treatment plants, this mineral quite specifically draws ammonia out of the contaminated water in order to prevent plants on polluted soils from absorbing heavy metals, zeolite is used that it binds heavy metals to itself.

With regard to the rearing of pigs and chickens, studies have shown that animals fed with zeolite-containing feed become less ill, their growth and vitality improve and they bind dangerous aflatoxins and render them harmless.
