"A very good read indeed. I was particularly interested in the Phosphorus Sustainability and Recycling coverage considering the poor overall conversion of mined phosphorus to that present in the fertilizers. The overall coverage from mining through beneficiation, phosphoric acid manufacture, phosphogypsum disposal, fertilizers, P sustainability and even Uranium and Rare Earth opportunities is excellent. A detailed primer on what it takes to succeed in the phosphate fertilizer business."
―Vaughn Astley, Dr. Phosphate, Inc., Lakeland, Florida, USA
"The book fully satisfies the appetite of those who want to know even the tiniest detail of the production of phosphate fertilizers. Its wealth of background information for any aspect makes it a perfect source, providing you deep rooted state of the art knowledge as a foundation for your lectures and your forthcoming own publications."
― Ewald Schnug, Institute for Plant and Soil Science, JKI, Braunschweig, Germany
