  • Synthetic zeolitic membranes have received much research attention over the past several decades but few studies have examined the potential application of natural zeolites for membrane separations. In this study two separate high density natural zeolite deposits were identified, characterized and experiments were performed separating gases and liquids using these robust membranes.
