Phosphogypsum: Proceedings of the International Symposium on Phosphogypsum, Lake Buena Vista, Florida, 5-7 November 1980


In addition to basic research, the Institute sponsored this International Symposium on Phosphogypsum to discuss potential benefits, problems, disposal methods and uses for phosphogypsum associated with the fertilizer industry. The utilization of phosphogypsum is not only a scientific/engineering problem, it also has economic and political consideration as well. Thirty-six papers were presented in six technical areas including agriculture, civil engineering, chemical recovery and purification, environmental effects, regulatory effects, and world-wide production and utilization of phosphogypsum.
