Silicas and Zeolites

Industry Overview:

While these complex materials have numerous valuable applications, the marketplace always pushes for more uses and lower costs. Zeolites and silicas already have many uses – from petrochemical catalysis to enhancement of aquaculture and household products – but many other opportunities are yet to be fully explored.

Technologically insightful people can produce these results by blending education and experience with the ability to solve problems, foresee new or better applications and reduce expenses.
