Zeolites are aluminosilicate crystals. Their unique structures consist of well-defined channels and pores. These channels make zeolites excellent choices for a variety of applications in catalysis and adsorption. With their high surface area and porosity on a molecular dimension, zeolites behave as molecular sieves: they allow small molecules to pass through, and stop larger molecules.
The proprietary material contains titanium and phosphorus within the framework. The zeotype structure is able to withstand hydrothermal conditions, and contrary to the isostructural SAPO-34, it is also highly stable in the presence of liquid water.
Where molecular sieves are used for emission control (industrial VOC removal, off-gas purification, green house gas control), as industrial process catalysts or for adsorption (odor removal, heat management). Such applications include:
The Emission Control Catalyst Market is expected to exceed more than US$ 6.0 Billion by 2024 at a CAGR of 5.5% in the given forecast period. Emission control catalysts are used in catalytic convertors in order to reduce harmful emissions in the environment. Growing environmental concerns lead to the adoption of new materials, methods, processes, and technologies by the market players. To control a number of emissions is the top priority of governments, commercial, and industrial sectors. Catalysts are widely used in the diesel based internal combustion engines. In order to control environmental emissions, catalysts are made compulsory for automobiles as well as for industrial and power plants. Source: https://www.marketwatch.com
The global Zeolite market has developed maturely and slowly. Synthetic zeolites account for over 40% of the total consumption of zeolite while natural zeolites account for the remainder. The demand for synthetic zeolite as in this technology is expected to see an exponential growth with the focus on environment issues and Cleantech.
