Beneficiation of Phosphates: Technology Advance and Adoption is the exclusive source of information on research and technology advances in phosphate mineral processing.
More than 100 internationally respected authors from 20 countries explore the latest developments in an industry experiencing unprecedented change and prosperity.
In Beneficiation of Phosphates you ll learn about promising new technologies such as enhanced flotation and breakthroughs in on-line analysis.
Flocculation-based deep cone thickening technology for fine waste tailings treatment is also examined. This has the potential to eliminate a host of environmental problems associated with waste disposal.
These and other compelling case histories provide insights into ensuring the long-term viability of an industry that “feeds” the world with this life-sustaining, yet nonrenewable resource.
Beneficiation of Phosphates: Technology Advance and Adoption is an authoritative, up-to-date resource for industry managers, engineers, regulators, and environmental groups, as well as mining and minerals processing students, faculty, and researchers.

Recent international work on research and development in phosphate beneficiation is gathered here, in sections on fundamentals, sustainability and the environment, reagents, process innovations, analysis and control, hydrometallurgical processing, and processing of refractory ores. Some highlights include material on enhanced flotation using picobubbles, flocculation-based thickening of fine tailings using deep cone paste technology, and on-line analysis using laser-induced breakdown spectroscopy. Other topics examined include a sustainable source for phosphorous fertilizer, the role of surfactants on collectors and modifiers for improving phosphate flotation, the recovery of uranium from phosphoric acid, and selective flotation of calcite from apatite using phosphoric acid and citric acid.
