Abstract:  A process has been formulated for synthesis of fly ash-based Zeolite-A (FAZ-A), whose optical brightness (58.2%) is slightly less for use as detergent builder. Attempts have been made to improve the optical brightness (OB) of FAZ A samples using pretreatment of fly ash (FA) through magnetic separation of iron, acid treatment and lime treatment to control colour development in zeolite sample. Treatment of FA and FAZ-A samples has also been attempted by EDTA chelation technique to control iron content. OB, iron content and cation binding capacity (CBC) in FAZ-A sample are crucial and diagnostic parameters for assessing their use as detergent builder. Treatment methodologies have therefore been standardized for improvement in OB as a trade-off between CBC and iron content depending upon the end use of zeolite-A.
