Dear Colleagues,

The 10 th International Conference on the Occurrence, Properties, and Utilization of Natural Zeolites - Zeolite 2018 will be held from the 24th to 29th of June 2018 in Cracow, Poland ( On behalf of the Organizing Committee of Zeolite 2018, we have the pleasure to cordially invite all researchers and interested parties to join us in participating in the scientific conference and related events. Zeolite 2018 is the latest in a series of conferences organized under the auspices of the International Natural Zeolite Association – INZA ( The main objectives of INZA are to encourage the advancement, the increase and diffusion of knowledge of natural zeolite science and technology. These conferences promote the exchange of information among the scientific community allowing people, especially young people with new ideas, to present their work and to interact with colleagues working in the same field.

The series of previous conferences were organized as follows: Tucson, Arizona, USA in 1976 (Zeolite’76) Budapest, Hungary (Zeolite’85) Havana,Cuba (Zeolite’91) Boise, Idaho, USA (Zeolite’93) Ischia (Naples), Italy (Zeolite’97) Thessaloniki, Greece (Zeolite’02) Socorro, New Mexico, USA (Zeolite’06) Sofia, Bulgaria, (Zeolite 2010) Belgrade, Serbia (Zeolite 2014).

Zeolite 2018 will be organized under the auspices of the International Natural Zeolite Association (INZA) and the following hosting institutions: Lublin University of Technology ( AGH University of Science and Technology ( The Mineral and Energy Economy Research Institute of the Polish Academy of Sciences (


All the best,
