How does ZEOLITE work in cat litters?

Clinoptilolite type zeolite absorbs ammonia and water in its channels at high rates. This feature of zeolite makes it an ideal cat litter because it keeps the tray drier and healthier, and also prevents bad odour formation.

Because zeolite keeps the litter drier for a long time, it does not stick to the bottom of the tray and cleaning becomes much easier.
