Plantation

KUJATAMA Zeo in planation
KUJATAMA Zeo in planation:
  • Enables better plant growth 
  • Improves the efficiency and value of fertiliser 
  • Improves water infiltration and retention 
  • Improves yield 
  • Retains nutrients for use by plants 
  • Improves long term soil quality 
  • Reduces loss of nutrients in soil 
Applying zeolite to the soil can improve its ability to hold nutrients and water
KUJATAMA Zeo is a natural super porous mineral (part of a group of hydrated alumino silicates). It carries a negative charge balanced by freely moving cations with positive charges. this provides an ideal trap for positive cations like nitrogen rich ammonium and potassium which are then released when demanded by plants. It's have a very open framework with a network of pores giving it a large surface area for trapping and exchanging valuable nutrients.

More efficient fertiliser use 
With the current high price of ammonium fertilisers zeolite can be used to extend their efficiency and performance. Blending fertiliser with zeolite can produce the same yield from less fertiliser applied because of the reduction of volatolization and leaching losses. It is particularly suitable for banding under drip irrigation planting where it will assist water infiltration, distribution and retention. When fertigation is practiced it will actively hold the nutrients in the rootzone.

More efficient water use 
Zeolite assists water infiltration and retention in the soil due to its very porous properties and the capillary suction it exerts. Acting as a natural wetting agent, it is an excellent amendment for non wetting sands and to assit water distribution through soils.

The role of zeolite 
Zeolite can hold nutrients in the root zone for plants to use when required. This leads to more efficient use of N and K fertilisers - either less fertiliser for the same yield or the same amount of fertiliser lasting longer and producing higher yields.

An added benefit of zeolite application is that unlike other soil amendments (gypsum and lime) it does not break down over time but remains in the soil to help improve nutrient and water retention permanently. With subsequent applications the zeolite will further improve the soil's ability to retain nutrients and produce improved yields.

And zeolite is not acidic. In fact it is marginally alkaline and its use with fertilisers can help buffer soil pH levels thus reducing the need for lime applications.

Without Zeolite: 
Fertiliser use without zeolite 

  • Broadcasting of N/K fertiliser onto soil surface. 
  • Irrigation after application reduces nitrogen losses due to volatilisation - nitrogen lost as ammonia gas 
  • Irrigation washes fertiliser into the root zone of plants 
  • Plants can take up fertiliser required whilst it remains in the root zone. Some fertiliser lost through early leaching. 
  • Large losses of fertiliser which move out of the root zone (leaching) as sandy soil is not capable of holding high levels of nutrients. 
With Zeolite: 
Fertiliser use with zeolite

  • Broadcasting of fertiliser to soil that has had an application of zeolite possible shallow incorporated; or 
  • Broadcasting of fertiliser including zeolite (mix or coating) 
  • Less risk of volatilisation losses as zeolite soaks up free ammonia. 
  • Irrigation washes fertiliser into the root zone of plants whilst some fertiliser remains bound up in zeolite 
  • Fertiliser in zeolite remains in root zone until it is required by the plant. 
  • Less fertiliser losses from leaching and fertiliser from zeolite becomes available to extend fertiliser life. 
  • Long term soil improvements (increase in CEC and nutrient retention in soil). 
ZEOLITE IN SOIL NUTRIENT HOLDING & RELEASE 
Zeolite attracts and retains ammonium, potassium, calcium & magnesium as well as many trace elements. It has the greatest affinity for ammonium and potassium but when a plant is taking up the ammonium or potassium off the zeolite, the zeolite attracts calcium from phosphorus mineral apatite such as rock phosphate or locked up phosphorus in soil to balance the zeolites negative charge. This reaction releases a free phosphorus. The plant extracts the ammonium, potassium and other nutrients by active uptake from roots.

The nutrient release from the Zeolite is plant driven setting up a natural cycle of nitrogen, potassium and phosphorus release. The Zeolite will recharge when an ammonium or potassium source becomes available either naturally or applied. The zeolite prevents free nutrients from leaching.

KUJATAMA Zeo Use in Ponds

KUJATAMA Zeo for Ponds
Why KUJATAMA Zeo ?
Because It.....
  • Absorb toxic gases like Ammonia, Nitrate and Hydrogen Sulfide. 
  • Regulate pH level of pond water. 
  • Provide Micro Nutrients. 
  • Increase Dissolved Oxygen content. 
  • Clean the pond by increasing growth and reproduction of Plankton. 
  • Absorb odors and bacteria, suspended solids, waste and dirty materials produced from unutilized feed, dead plants and fish etc. 
The growth / yield of Fish, Prawn, Shrimp depends largely on favorable water quality characteristics. Periodic water quality monitoring together with appropriate measure to control or prevent quality deterioratioration should become integral part of shrimp farming program.

In shrimp farming systems excess feed, decal mater / sudden increase or decrease in algal / microbial populations may cause drastic changes in water quality parameters. A part from these physiochemical parameter such as salinity, pH, ammonia, hydrogen sulphide, carbon dioxide do play a vital role in the survival / growth of prawn shrimp and fish.

The aqua marine animals release ammonia which is toxic in its un-ionized form and its toxicity varies with pH, salinity and temperature. Un-ionized form of ammonia is particularly damaging to fish grill membranes and retards their overall growth. KUJATAMA Zeo works as filter and helps in further mineralization and to oxidize Ammonia to a less toxic form. Mineralization is the process in which heterotrophic bacteria breakdown complex protein and organics into basic inorganic compounds. Ammonia is the most important by product of mineralization. The induce cavity of it's also provide extra oxygen which in turn help in faster the oxidation of ammonia to Nitrile and then to nitrate. Most fish are tolerant of Nitrate levels of 300-400ppm and above. To avoid stress on the fish the nitrate level should be monitored within 0-175ppm and water changes made to keep the level below 35-70ppm nitrate. The change in water quality as above is taken care by KUJATAMA Zeo.

Poor quality feed will cause severe quality problems by building up toxic ammonia, nitrate, hydrogen sulphide, increased BOD (Biological Oxygen Demand) and COD (Chemical Oxygen Demand) thereby inducing stress in fish, prawns and predisposing them to pathogenic inflections.

Active Silicone and Aluminium are main compounds of KUJATAMA Zeo and are powerful for physical treatment :
  • It's purifies water and improves dissolved oxygen content. 
  • It's absorbs Ammonia, Hydrogen Sulphide, Carbon Dioxide and other poisonous gases and bad odors. 
  • It's provides vast surface area for adsorption due to both its micron particals size average about 4 th 5 microns and the pososity. 
  • The modified cavity at KUJATAMA Zeo also makes them to fill like corals for their inhabitation and prevent further decomposition which may lead to make water hazy.

Artificial Grass Infill

KUJATAMA Zeo Infill for turf
Benefits of Using Zeolite Infill for Turf 
Turf looks great. What really matters, though, is what’s underneath it. Due to its unique honeycomb structure, Zeolite is an excellent natural odor neutralizer, which makes it a valuable infill option for turf, artificial grass, pet kennels, and more. Additionally, Zeolite has natural cooling properties which will help ensure that your turf doesn’t get too hot. Through a process called evapotranspiration, Zeolite effectively cools turfs fibres naturally.

Zeolite can be added to crumb rubber or other infill options to maintain the temperature and control the odor of your turf.
  • Base Layer infill allows odor-causing liquids to flow through and settle underneath, which allows the Zeolite to neutralize them as they pass through. 
  • Sport Turf infill is perfect for turf with a pile height of more than 1 inch without thatching; this option provides maximum drainage as well as odor control.
  • Pet Turf infill option provides smaller granules and is ideal for pet owners with backyard or kennel turf who need extra odor control. 
What is Zeolite and How Does It Work? 
Zeolite is a natural volcanic mineral that forms through a chemical reaction between volcanic ash and alkaline water. This process forms an open, three-dimensional structure that gives off a negative charge and is capable of trapping pollutants and odors.

These properties are what makes the mineral so unique and valuable. Zeolite is resilient against high temperatures and high pressure, doesn’t dissolve in water, and doesn’t oxidize in the air. Zeolite can be found in more everyday places than you might think: water softeners, water filters, pet litter, livestock food additive, and turf, to name a few!

Remediation

KUJATAMA Zeo remediation
When concentrations of pollutants exceed a certain level and present a threat to the environment or human health, remediation action are necessary (Misaelides, 2011). This process consists of two approaches: the extraction of pollutants from soil and water as well as the reduction of their mobility (Misaelides, 2011). While several products have been utilized for these purposes, the use of zeolite is a low-cost solution that provides a high sorption capacity with the ability to adjust the pH of soil and water systems. The application of natural zeolites to remediation processes is based on their ion exchange properties.

 A study by Motsi et al. (2009) studied the adsorption behavior of natural zeolite to determine its applicability in treating acid mine drainage containing lead, copper, zinc and magnesium. Researchers examined the rate of adsorption and the uptake at equilibrium in single and multi-component solutions. The results showed rapid uptake during the first 40 minutes, corresponding to an 80 percent total removal (Motsi et al., 2009). Following this initial uptake, the rate of absorption decreased. However, the overall results demonstrated that natural zeolite has significant potential as an alternative, low cost material in the treatment of acid mine drainage (Motsi et al., 2009).

Cui et al. (2006) explored a novel process for high-capacity remediation of acid rock drainage. The results indicated that using clinoptilolite in a slurry bubble column approached equilibrium after 30 minutes. Also, the adsorption of metal ions occurred within 10 minutes. The researchers found that smaller particles of zeolite showed significantly higher capacity and rates of adsorption than larger particles. Finally, the adsorption of zeolite particles differed for various metal ions, with a normalized order of iron, aluminum, copper, zinc, magnesium, and manganese.

Li et al. (2007) examined zeolite’s adsorptive capacity for aluminum, copper, iron, and zinc ions based on equilibrium tests using acid rock drainage. The results indicated that clinoptilolite adsorbed the four metals within 30 minutes. It also removed 64% of copper, 82% of iron, and 89% of aluminum. The researchers also found that clinoptilolite treated at a pH 1-5 for 144 hours showed minimal changes in its overall structure and remained stable. The results point to zeolite’s potential as a heavy metal adsorbent.

KUJATAMA Zeo

KUJATAMA Zeo final product

What is Zeolite?
KUJATAMA Zeo is an organic mineral derived from the reaction of volcanic activity and an alkaline water source, either freshwater or saltwater. Zeolite material from a freshwater source to eliminate additional sodium being added to the equation. Zeolite is made up of a unique, crystalline lattice structure, naturally arranged in a fixed and stable honeycomb framework built from aluminosilicates. Zeolite is one of nature’s rare minerals that possess a negative charge. The negatively charged alumina and neutrally charged silica tetrahedral building blocks are stacked to form the honeycomb framework.

This structure allows the pores to attract and capture cations (positively charged ions) such as Ammonium, Calcium, Magnesium, and Potassium, along with micro-nutrients such as Manganese, Zinc, Iron, Barium, and Copper making it an effective mineral fertilizer and water treatment material. The high attraction for water and numerous positively charged ions (K+, NH4+, Ca2+, Na+, and Mg2+) can be reversibly bound or released depending on the surrounding conditions (Hay, 1978). 

How Zeolite Works?
Zeolite has two methods of capturing positively charged cations:
  •  Absorption into the porous matrix 
  • Absorption by cation exchange (CEC) 
Absorption works similar to a sponge, utilizing the porous structure of the Zeolite to capture and hold water and nutrients until the plant is ready for it. Absorption works by utilizing Zeolite’s high Cation Exchange Capacity (CEC). What makes Zeolite such a great mineral fertilizer are it’s adsorption abilities, which lets Zeolite magnetically hold and release plant nutrients to prevent them from washing away while keeping them available to plants and crops.

Zeolite holds ammonium and other nutrients in the crystal structure where they are not water soluble, but are plant accessible on an as-needed and time-release basis. Zeolite has a high affinity for NH4+, which is a plant usable form of nitrogen. Zeolite will also take up Ca2+ from phosphate rock, thereby releasing both phosphate and ammonium ions (Eberl D., 1993).

Zeolite is not a clay. It will not break down or change structure over time. Zeolite is a “tektosilicate,” meaning it consists of three dimensional frameworks of silicon-oxygen tetrahedrals, where all four corner oxygen atoms are shared with an adjacent tetrahedral. The arrangement creates a deficiency of positive charge, which nets the negative charge that gives Zeolite the ability to exchange ions and operate as an effective soil amendment for lands and crops.

Crops

KUJATAMA Zeo crops
Zeolites with unique cation-exchange, molecular sieving, and adsorption make these minerals attractive to agricultural and industrial utilization. Indonesia has more than 50 zeolite deposits and some of them have been exploited as mining materials. Some zeolite application to agricultural lands have been established, including direct application as soil amendment, mixing with chemical and organic fertilizer as slow release agent and as materials of growth media. The most important reason of zeolite application is their capability to capture ammonium ion (NH4+) and availability in abandon amount as natural resources.

These experiment demonstrated the application of zeolites in single and combination with compost and calcite as soil amendment. The results showed that application of zeolites in single application increased the cation-exchange capacity (CEC) and exchangeable bases of soils when they applied to low CEC soils. Zeolites also enhanced the available P2O5 in the soil and the increase was higher when zeolites were combined with chicken-manure compost. (Suwardi and Itsuo Goto,2000)

The use of  KUJATAMA Zeo in soil increases root and shoot growth by holding nitrogen in the root zone and gradually releasing it to the plant for better utilization. This ability to hold nitrogen also reduces the amount of fertilizer needed to maintain healthy soil.

KUJATAMA Zeo supplies potassium, supports micro-organisms beneficial to plants, and maintains moisture during dry periods to sustain growth.

However, KUJATAMA Zeo has numerous advantages in the area of water conservation and nutrient leaching.
  • It's capable of holding up to 60% of its weight in water 
  • It's can increase water infiltration by 7%-30% on gentle sloped land and up to 50% on steep sloped land 
  • Soil moisture can be increased by 0.4%-1.8% in drought conditions and 5%-15% in general water situations 
  • Consequently, overland surface runoff is reduced, in turn protecting lands from erosion 
  • Use of soluble N fertilizers is a major cause for groundwater contamination. Zeolite reduces nitrate leaching by inhibiting the nitrification of ammonium to nitrate

Composting

KUJATAMA Zeo use in composting
KUJATAMA Zeo is natural zeolite provides value to the composting processes because of its ability to absorb water and adsorb plant- available nitrogen through cation exchange. Also, zeolite prevents soil compaction and works to increase infiltration, both of which promote soil aeration. This benefit is made possible by the mineral’s high surface area and porosity.

A study by Zhang and Sun (2015) examined the effects of an earthworm cast and zeolite mixture on the composting of green waste. The results indicated that the mix improved the quality of the compost products in regards to nitrification, enzyme activities, and microbial numbers. Also, the compost matured in only 21 days as opposed to the common 90 – 270 day time period required of traditional composting (Zhang & Sun, 2015).

Zeolite has two methods of holding cations such as ammonium and plant nutrients. The first method is by absorption in its porous matrix. The second method is by cation exchange (CEC) – zeolite holds ammonium and other plant nutrients in the Crystal structure where they are not water-soluble but are plant-accessible on an as-needed time-release basis.

How does Using zeolites Benefit my soil? 
Using zeolite will cut fertilizer and water costs by holding the nutrients and water in the root zone until the plant is ready to utilize them. Thereby requiring less fertilizer and water to be applied. This promotes good stewardship of the land by reducing pollution brought on by fertilizers leaching to the groundwater or running off into surface water sources. Zeolites, when used properly, can yield some impressive results in regards to faster germination times, faster growth rates, larger plants, crop yields and reduced fertilizer and water applications.

Reduces water requirements during irrigation as zeolite holds moisture in the growth zone. Zeolite has a high CEC that enables a greater loading of plant nutrients such as nitrogen & micronutrients. The nutrients are held in the growth zone and are plant accessible but not Water-soluble. Reduces nitrogen fertilizer requirements as a large portion of nitrogen fertilizers leach through the growth Zone and into the aquifer. Zeolite will hold nitrogen and prevent the pollution of the water table by nitrates and nitrites.

Zeolite prevents compaction, increases infiltration, and helps the aeration of deep

Zeolite is 100% natural for organic operations and when composted with manure, it becomes a natural fertilizing system.

Zeolite Use in Compost or Dry Stacked Manure
The compost or dry stacked manure should be top-dressed with a thin layer of zeolite after it is turned or after the addition of a new layer of manure. Alternatively, a layer of Zeolite should be placed in the area of the barn receiving the fresh manure. Composting is an important process that

  • Converts organically bound nitrogen that is not plant accessible to ammonium hydroxide, ammonium nitrate, and ammonia that are all plant accessible 
  • Kills the pathogens, 
  • Reduces or eliminates the odor
  • Dries the manure 
  • Reduces the flies, and 
  • Kills weed seeds. 
Composting should be conducted in-vessel to prevent groundwater and air pollution. Wash down operations are no longer environmentally acceptable due to groundwater pollution of nitrates, nitrites, and hydrogen sulfide.

KUJATAMA Zeo is an excellent soil amendment and fertilizer carrier. It holds nitrogen as ammonium, has a high potash content (approximately 3.47% potassium), has no water soluble sodium, holds over 55% of its weight in water and buffers soil with up to 2.02% calcium.

The ability of zeolite to load with 1.8 to 2.1% nitrogen in the form of ammonium in its crystal structure makes it excellent for fertilizer applications. The nitrogen is not water-soluble, but it is plant accessible. Zeolite holds the nitrogen in the root zone of the plant and releases it gradually as needed for growth. Nitrogen is used efficiently and groundwater contamination is reduced.
