Beneficiation of phosphates; technology and sustainability.
Treatment of raw material (such as pulverized ore) to improve physical or chemical properties in preparation for further processing. Beneficiation techniques include washing, sizing of particulates, and concentration (which involves the separation of valuable of phosphates; technology and sustainability.

Drawn from those delivered at the conference of the same name held in December 2004 by the Florida Institute of Phosphate Research, these papers cover theoretical understanding, waste treatment utilization and the environment, technological innovations in reagents and processing, processing of complex ores, hydro-metallurgical processing, and process analysis and control. Topics include elements of flotation rate constant prediction and coarse apatite apatite (ăp`ətīt), mineral, a phosphate of calcium containing chlorine or fluorine, or both, that is transparent to opaque in shades of green, brown, yellow, white, red, and purple. flotation, mechanisms involved in reactive flotation of dolomite dolomite (dō`ləmīt', dŏl`ə–).

The most common, orthophosphoric acid, H3PO4, is usually simply called phosphoric acid. , Hidroveg chemicals in American phosphate rock phosphate rock
