Uranium Recovery from Wet Process Phosphoric Acid
Published: September 1976
A potential source of uranium is wet process phosphoric acid. Work at the Oak Ridge National Laboratory in Tennessee indicates that uranium can be extracted from the in-process phosphoric acid of a 1,000 tons P2O5/day plant at a lower cost than the then prevailing uranium price.
Some advantage may also accrue to the subsequent acid handling and processing operations.
