Vancouver, British Columbia, Canadian Zeolite Corp. (the “Company”) (TSX.V: CNZ) (OTCQB: CNZCF) (FSE: ZEON) is pleased to report the Company’s zeolite has been submitted to the Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) for certification for the animal feed market and also to the United States for their state to state registration. Upon approval from the CFIA the Company’s zeolite will be submitted for Organic Certification with the Organic Material Review Institute (OMRI).

For decades natural zeolite has been used as an animal feed supplement in a wide variety of species in countries around the world, such as China, Japan, Korea and Turkey. Some of the documented benefits include: healthier animals, increased weight gain, odor and moisture control, decreased methane gas and reduced mortality. North America’s interest in zeolite as an additive to animal feeds is growing as feed mills and producers become aware of its benefits.

Ray Paquette, CEO stated, “the animal feed market represents another significant opportunity for Canadian Zeolite. According to the Animal Nutrition Association of Canada (ANAC) the total animal feed production is just over 30 million tonnes annually. The United States annual production was last reported at approximately 168 million tons. The studied and recommended ratio of zeolite is in the 2 – 4% range of total volumes consumed.”

Canadian Zeolite Targets Medical Marijuana Industry

By | Corporate News | No Comments

Vancouver, British Columbia, Canadian Zeolite Corp. (the “Company”) (TSX.V: CNZ) (OTCQB: CNZCF) (FSE: ZEON) is pleased to report it will begin shipping its natural zeolite to several medical marijuana growers in Canada and the United States. Currently, the Canadian Zeolite team is proceeding with developing zeoponics and zeoponic substrates specifically for use in the growing of medical marijuana. Zeoponics allows the plant to absorb the nutrients as it needs them, which improves the plant quality, produces higher yields and shortens production cycles. In addition, natural zeolite aids in control of mould and moisture issues in standard plant growing operations.

Natural zeolite has emerged as having considerable potential in a wide variety of agricultural processes. The unique ion-exchange, dehydration/re-hydration and absorption properties of zeolite materials promise to contribute significantly to agriculture and aquaculture technology. Zeolites are fast becoming the subject of serious investigation in dozens of agricultural laboratories both here and abroad. Zeolites have been proven to contribute to more efficient crops, plant health, significant yield and agricultural productivity.

Ray Paquette CEO states, “with the explosive growth of the medical marijuana industry, Canadian Zeolite is well-positioned to become a leading supplier of natural zeolite to this expanding market as well as becoming an innovator of new products to compliment the growing process.”
