Clean Age Minerals, Inc. Proposes the Use of Eco-Friendly Zeolite for Remediation Efforts in Japanadmin
Clean Age Minerals Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Daleco Resources Corporation, announced today that it has proposed the use of its remediation-proven form of Clinoptilolite zeolite and its patented CA-Series engineered zeolite-based products for the cleanup of the contaminated water and soil resulting from the devastating earthquake and tsunami that has impacted Japan.
Robert E. Martin, President of Clean Age Minerals, Inc., stated that Clinoptilolite is a naturally occurring eco-friendly, non-toxic mineral that has the unique capability of removing toxic materials including heavy metals, chemicals, toxins, radionuclides and other impurities from contaminated liquids, solids, and gasses. Clinoptilolite’s chemical and physical structure makes it useful in wide range of agricultural, industrial and remediation applications. According to published academic studies, it has been used for several years as an additive in animal feeds where it absorbs toxins created by molds and microscopic parasites and enhances feed absorption by the animals. Pure forms of Clinoptilolite are also used today as human toxin clarifiers. Clinoptilolite zeolite has proven to be effective in absorbing ammonia and other toxic gases from air and water and is extremely effective in filtration applications and has been used in soil amendments to restore productivity and in soil and water remediation processes to remove contaminants.
“There are many potential applications for Clean Age Mineral’s patented Clinoptilolite-based zeolite products in Japan, and water and soil remediation is just the tip of the iceberg. For example, while detailed information is limited, published data indicates that roughly 500,000 tons of zeolites, mainly Clinoptilolite, were utilized to deal with the Chernobyl nuclear disaster. After the Chernobyl disaster, Clinoptilolite was mixed into the feed supply of dairy cattle to reduce the radiation in the milk produced. Children in the affected areas around Chernobyl were fed chocolate and biscuits that were formulated with Clinoptilolite zeolite and doses of zeolite- based liquids were administered to assist in the removal of radionuclides from their bodies. Clinoptilolite zeolite was also incorporated in the cement blend that was utilized to “cap” the damaged Chernobyl reactor. Clean Age Minerals believes that the same or similar procedures can be deployed in Japan,” stated Gary J. Novinskie, President of Daleco Resources.
