Size: 14 x 40, 30 x 60, -40.
GRAS: Classified as “GRAS” (generally regarded
as safe) under21 CFR Part 182.2729, 40 CFR Part
Color: Pale green when dry, dark green when wet
Moisture: Holds up to 55% of its weight in
Surface Area: High surface area 24.9 square
CEC: High cation exchange capacity (CEC), allows
it to absorb cations such as ammonium, heavy
metals such as lead, zinc, copper, silver, and
radioactive nuclides such as isotopes of cesium
and strontium into its crystal lattice.

BRZ™ can be used to absorb and deodorize fluids
including oil, gasoline, possibly methyl
tertiary butyl ether (MTBE), polychlorinated
biphenyls (PCB's), alcohol, water, and a wide
variety of other organic and inorganic fluids.
It is effective for the removal of certain heavy
metals such as silver, mercury, nickel, chrome,
cobalt, antimony, arsenic, etc., and various
cations such as ammonium from water and other
fluids. BRZ™ can also be used to separate
ammonia, hydrogen sulfide, carbon dioxide,
sulfur dioxide, methane, oxygen, and nitrogen
from gas streams. BRZ™ is used for the
containment of low-level radioactive waste from
water and for the containment of radio nuclides.
It has been found to be effective on various
radioactive isotopes of strontium and
Shops, service stations, airports, refineries,
machine shops, petroleum transfer stations.
Material is spread on the floor and then swept
MARINE OIL SPILLS
Fine particle BRZ™ can be airdropped or
pneumatically spread over marine oil spills. The
BRZ™ causes the oil to coagulate where it can be
more efficiently "skimmed." Alternatively, the
coagulated mass will sink. At this point,
bacteria (that can be added to the zeolite) will
convert the oil to a safe compound or
alternatively the coagulated zeolite with the
oil maybe environmentally stable.
BRZ™ is much more effective than clay absorbents
currently being used for kitty litter, because
the BRZ™ ties up the ammonium, the cause of the
odor, in the crystal structure (the cation
exchange position). The kitty litter can then be
recycled to the garden or lawn as an ammoniated
HORSE STALL FRESHENER
thin layer of BRZ™ is placed in the horse stall
area to absorb ammonium and de-moisturize the
manure to retard the development of fly larvae.
It is then recycled as an ammoniated soil
amendment on lawns and gardens.
thin layer of BRZ™ is used in animal cages to
deodorize and de-moisturize animal waste. It is
then recycled as an ammoniated soil amendment
for plants, lawns, and gardens.
BRZ™ can effectively remove odor forming gases
such as ammonia and hydrogen sulfide generated
by sewage treatment plants and industrial
