A recording of the IFS webinar, Phosphoric acid wet process - which process? is now available to view

29 Mar 2016 - 29 Mar 2017

In March 2016 the IFS held it's first online webinar. It was given by Tibaut Theys, General Manager of Prayon Technologies, and covered how to select which of the several different versions of the Phosphoric acid wet process will be suitable for a particular situation. You can view it here.

For decades one of the most popular ways to make phosphate fertiliser has been to use phosphoric acid as the main raw material. This is mainly produced by reacting sulphuric acid with the phosphate ore. This reaction can be achieved by following one of several different routes.

The selection of the optimum process for any new project or re-vamp for the production of phosphoric acid is a mammoth task. There are an enormous number of factors that influence the choice.

In a conference presented in front of the members of the IFS, Paul Smith extensively presented the process routes available and provided a rich list of choice criteria. This webinar summarised the information presented and also presented recent developments.

If you are new to the production of phoshate fertiliser or would value a 'refresher' of the main alternatives viewing this webinar will be an excellent use of your time.

This link enables you to view and hear the presentation, along with the extensive question and answer session that followed it.
