Phosphate Fertilizer Plants - IFC

Phosphate Fertilizer Plants Industry Description and Practices Phosphate fertilizers are produced by adding acid to ground or pulverized phosphate rock. If sulfuric acid is used, single or normal, phosphate (SSP) is produced, with a phosphorus content of 16–21% as phosphorous pentoxide (P 2 O 5). If phos-phoric acid is used to acidulate the ...

How phosphate is mined and processed

2014-4-21  Therefore, spreading phosphate rock on fields had little effect on plant growth. However, in the mid-1800s, chemists discovered that mixing sulfuric acid with phosphate rock would make a soluble fine powder called superphosphate; this discovery turned phosphate rock into the valuable fertilizer it is today. A caveat, however, is that once

Phosphate Rock - an overview ScienceDirect Topics

Phosphate rock used for fertilizer is a major NORM due to both uranium and thorium. Phosphate is a common chemical constituent of fertilizer. It is principally mined from apatite and phosphate rocks (phosphorite) in which the concentration of phosphate has been enhanced by sedimentary, igneous, weathering, and biological processes.
