1st Conference on Zeolites > Sustainable Zeolites: Advances in Synthesis and Applications

Zeolites are crystalline solid materials that possess regular porous structure frameworks. Many of the unique properties of zeolites, such as their sorption, molecular sieve, and ion exchange capacities, are explained by their structure, particularly by the presence of voids or channels that allow the sorption and diffusion of various ions and molecules. Due to their distinctive properties, these materials are widely used in numerous industrial applications such as water remediation, catalysis, detergent building, gas purification, membranes, and drying processes, among others.

The development of more sustainable synthesis processes aimed at minimizing the consumption of raw materials, reducing costs, and decreasing the environmental impact of the processes has driven research efforts to achieve cleaner and more eco-efficient processes for the production of zeolites.

We are pleased to announce the inaugural Conference on Zeolites: "Sustainable Zeolites: Advances in Synthesis and Applications". This conference provides a platform for researchers, scientists, and industry professionals to convene and exchange knowledge on the latest advancements in zeolite research and applications. The selected works can be presented weither by oral presentation or as a poster.


Why Attend:

This conference is a unique opportunity to:

  • Gain insights from leading researchers and industry professionals.
  • Network with peers and collaborators in the field of zeolite research.
  • Stay abreast of the latest developments in sustainable zeolite technologies.


Call for paper:

We invite submissions of original research papers, case studies, and reviews for presentation at the conference. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

  • Synthesis methods and characterisation techniques.
  • Novel applications in environmental remediation, agriculture, and water purification.
  • Catalytic applications in chemical and petrochemical industries.
  • Development of sustainable processes using zeolites.
  • Regulatory aspects and standards for zeolite adoption.
  • Challenges and opportunities in the industrial-scale implementation of zeolites

Authors are invited to submit abstracts for consideration by 31 July 2024. Accepted abstracts will be published in the conference proceedings. Moreover, the authors have the opportunity to publish their extended work in a special issue entitled "Sustainable Zeolites: Advances in Synthesis and Applications in Materials", an international peer-reviewed, open access journal on Materials Science and Engineering published semimonthly online by MDPI.
