Production of phosphate fertilizers (PF), without uranium recovery, amounts to dispersing uranium compounds on agricultural fields. These compounds are naturally hidden in phosphate rock deposits
Flow Microbalance Simulation of Pumping and Injection Unit in In Situ Leaching Uranium Mining Area
In situ leaching (ISL) uranium mining technology is an in situ mining technology in which the chemical solution is injected into the ore-bearing strata through drilling wells, and the solution moves
Towards Zero Solid Waste in the Sedimentary Phosphate Industry: Challenges and Opportunities
The phosphate industry produces huge volumes of waste (hundred million tons per year). These wastes are generally surface landfilled, leading to significant environmental impacts and a large
Study of Semi-Dry High Target Solidification/Stabilization of Harmful Impurities in Phosphogypsum by Modification
Phosphogypsum (PG) treatment is one of the research hotspots in the field of environmental protection. Many researchers both at home and abroad have devoted themselves to studies on harmless resource
Occurrence and Contamination of Rare Earth Elements in Urban Mangroves of Shenzhen, South China
Mangroves acted as sinks of terrestrial pollutants, but the occurrence and contamination of rare earth elements (REEs) in urban mangroves lacked systematic evaluation. In rapidly developing Shenzhen,
Evaluating radiation risks and resource opportunities associated with phosphogypsum in the Philippines
Phosphogypsum (PG) accumulates during wet-phosphoric acid production for fertilizers. In the Philippines, PG is partly (40%) utilized to produce gypsum walls and cement. This work assesses the
The Recovery of Phosphate and Ammonium from Biogas Slurry as Value-Added Fertilizer by Biochar and Struvite Co-Precipitation
Biowaste materials could be considered a renewable source of fertilizer if methods for recovering P from waste can be developed. Over the last few decades, there has been a high level of interest in
Ammonium and Phosphate Recovery from Biogas Slurry: Multivariate Statistical Analysis Approach
Livestock biogas slurry is an effluent containing nutrients such as ammonium and phosphate that are released by the industries. Therefore, recovery and reuse of ammonium and phosphorus is highly


Phosphate Rocks and Nuclear Proliferation
ABSTRACT Phosphate rocks are predominantly mined for fertilizer production. However, they also contain considerable amounts of accompanying natural uranium that can exceed concentrations found at

Nuclear Power in China: An Analysis of the Current and Near-Future Uranium Flows
Nuclear power capacity is growing rapidly in China and is expected to reach 58 GW by 2020. However, it is not clear at present if the country can meet this increasing demand for uranium. We present a
