Several other applications for agglutinate manufacturing exist. An example is the use of agglutinate containing zero-valent iron for groundwater remediation. The industry is currently using Fe0 for hazardous waste remediation at superfund sites. The cost and handling complication make Fe0 not an option for several other programs. The agglutinate "capsule", similar to what is on the moon's surface can be an ideal package.
Zybek Advanced Products has identified several different programs that require high-fidelity simulants. These include: oxygen extraction, connector testing, electro-mechanical effects on devices, medical testing, excavation development, etc. New applications are being identified as other NASA centers learn of the high-volume, high-aspect ratio particulates ZAP is manufacturing. Examples are: dust adhesion and need for high volume, high-fidelity simulants for process development.
