Through implementing the project "Completing the technological process of producing Cu2+ zeolite used in water treatment for aquaculture and micro-element fertilizer production", scientists at the Institute of Applied Materials Science (Vietnam Academy of Science and Technology) have completed a technological process of producing NaA zeolite from kaolin; a technological process of producing Cu2+ zeolite from NaA zeolite; a technological process to produce preparations containing Cu2+ zeolite for treating the aquacultural environment with the capacity 500 kg/batch; a technological process of producing micro-element fertilizers containing Cu2+ zeolite which stimulates the growth of crops, with the capacity of 1000 kg/batch. The achievements from the project have been applied to install a stable production line at Vietnam - Austria Manufacturing Company Limited.
