PHOSPHATE ROCK

PHOSPHATE ROCK

Phosphate rock is obtained from geological deposits. Its primary constituent is apatite, a calcium phosphate mineral. Phosphate rock is the basis material for almost all phosphate fertilizers, either as such or transformed into phosphoric acid. When added to the soil, phosphate rock slowly dissolves and gradually releases its nutrients.

Characterization of phosphate rocks. Characterization studies of phosphate rock (PR) samples should provide data on: (i) the composition of the apatite, other phosphate minerals and gangue minerals; (ii) the relative amounts of mineral species present (estimated); and (iii) the particle size of the various minerals in the rock fabric, etc.

Abstract. Phosphate rock (PR) is a finite mineral indispensable for fertilizer production, while P (phosphorus) is a major pollutant if applied or discharged in excess, causing widespread eutrophiion (Carpenter and Bennet, 2011). Highgrade PR is obtained from deposits which took millions of years to form and which are gradually being depleted.
