Zeolites are aluminium silicates that are hydrated in the crystal structure. They are formed millions of years ago, as a result of the reaction of ashes and lava erupted from volcanoes with lake or sea waters. Such variations as in temperature - geological location - water / ash ratio during the formation of the zeolites, add unique properties into their compositions. There are a total of 42 types of zeolite, each having different compositions. Clinoptilolite is the type of zeolite that is most widely used in the industrial sector and has the most economic significance. The clinoptilolite located in the Manisa / Gordes basin has a purity ratio of 95%.

The cage like structure of the zeolites provides a sufficiently wide inner and outer area for the ionic exchanges and chemical reactions. The pores inside zeolites encompass 50% of their volume. These pores act as molecular sieves. Naturally zeolites are loaded with negative loads and have high ion exchange capacities. Due to their porous structure and high ion exchange capacity, they have the capability of retaining, adsorbing and absorbing a number of gas types and odours; water and moisture; petrochemical materials, low level radioactive elements, ammonium, toxins, heavy metals and other numerous solutions. Today, owing to its environment friendly construct and low costs, zeolite (clinoptilolite) is widely used in a number of industrial sectors, and several environmental projects.
