Phosphogypsum (PG), an acidic byproduct of phosphoric acid production during phosphate fertilizer manufacturing, is commonly stacked on the facilities and capped with soil at decommissioning. The research evaluated soil capping depth (0, 8, 15, 30, 46, 91 cm) effects on response of five seeded...
Phosphogypsum (PG) is an acidic by-product created during phosphate fertilizer production (Rutherford et al 1994). In open or operational PG stacks, airborne fluorides are emitted from phosphogypsum process water pond surface evaporation or particulate fluoride that can be transported as fluoride...
Influence of Soil Cap Depth and Vegetation on Reclamation of Phosphogypsum Stacks in Fort Saskatchewan, AlbertaDownload
This study quantified environmental parameters to develop reclamation strategies for phosphogypsum stacks. Research was conducted on phosphogypsum stack experimental plots established in 2006 (6 soil cap depths, 5 vegetation treatments), and soil capped slopes seeded in 1998. Significant root...
The influence of capping soil depth on water dynamics was investigated at a decommissioned phosphogypsum (PG) stack in Fort Saskatchewan, Alberta. PG is the a by-product in phosphoric acid production, a necessary component of phosphorus fertilizer. Currently, there are no environmental...
