Zeolite rocks from different locations in Bulgaria are characterized in geological-mineralogical respect and as ion exchangers for cesium and strontium radionuclides. The basic equilibrium and kinetic exchange parameters are determined. The influence of the mineralogical and chemical composition of the zeolite rocks on the ion exchange properties is shown.
