Advances in process technology for eco-friendly phosphates by separation of radionuclides

Conference:

Abstract

Phosphates are used in the industry for fertilizers, industrial chemicals (detergents, water-treatment chemicals) and food-additives. The source of phosphates for the industry is rock-phosphate. Over 90% of phosphate rocks of the world are associated with uranium and its radioactive daughter products. Processing and use of phosphates is accompanied by radiation hazards. The concentration of radionuclides is low, but in view of large number of persons exposed to the hazards, the cumulative societal pollution load is high, and a matter of concern for international organisations. Chemical engineering techniques have been developed for the reduction of societal radiation hazard from the phosphates. In this paper, brief details of the process and developmental efforts in India are described. (author). 4 refs., 1 fig.
