Zeoplant is the leading supplier in the Middle East for moisture retaining soil additives. Our product Zeoplant, a natural mineral additive mined and manufactured in Hungary reduces irrigation water requirements in the sandy soils by 50% and fulfills ESTIDAMA and LEED requirements to a maximum. 

Zeoplant is integral part of the landscape specifications of almost all landscape architects in the Middle East and fits perfectly well in the sustainability efforts of the Gulf countries. Zeoplant is environmental friendly not only by reducing drastically the irrigation water quantities, but also by reducing chemical fertilizer application for operation and maintenance by its high CEC (cationic exchange capacity) and nutrient binding capacity.As water is becoming more and more a precious natural resource, the obligation of saving water for irrigation purposes, whether it’s treated, desalinated or natural, is an important issue in the design and implementation of all major developments in the region. 
Zeoplant combines economical and ecological interests of project owners and developers in a sustainable form. Zeoplant is a very effective water retaining soil additive, consisting of fully natural mineral material, treated with a special natural organic component. In times of increasing water scarcity all around the globe, water has to be used wisely and not wasted through uncontrolled landscaping or agriculture.

The sandy soils in the Middle East have a very low water holding capacity and require an average irrigation demand of 12 – 15 litres per square meter daily.Zeoplant improves the soil structure and increases the water holding capacity of the soils to the extent that infiltration speed of irrigation water will be reduced by up to 85%. Plant roots have more time to absorb the water and loss of water through percolation is reduced drastically. Zeoplant reduces the necessary quantity of irrigation water by 50% Zeoplant’s additional benefits are as follows: 

- Savings of 50% electricity for pumping of irrigation water 

- Direct wear & tear savings on maintenance for pumping units & irrigation equipment 

- Reduction of storage cost for irrigation water (minimize/ eliminate tanks) 

- Reduction of chemical fertilizers during maintenance and operation through prevention of leaching. Therefore monetary savings in time, logistics, labour and spreading. 

- Healthier and faster growth of plants and crops which can be substantially proven   (temperature controlled areas, i.e. green houses and open areas). pH is reduced and EC increased which effects growth rate by providing the plants more nutrients 

-Zeoplant has a high CEC and contains lots of nutrients 

- Replaces the usage of peat moss completely           

- Reduces carbon footprint Due to its mineral origin, Zeoplant does not need any re-application and stays active in the soil for many years.
