Description
A method for the recovery and enrichment of the phosphate from dephosphorization slag was examined. First, the elution of aqueous phosphate from dephosphorization slag using aqueous HNO3 was examined using both the batch and flow methods. With the batch method, 82% of the dephosphorization slag could be dissolved within 30 min using 1.0 mol/L HNO3, indicating that the batch method could be used for mass processing to extract phosphorus in the bulk phase, but all components contained in the slag were unselectively dissolved. In contrast, by using 0.05 mol/L HNO3 via the flow method, 22% of the slag was dissolved in 100 min giving a more selective dissolution of phosphate from the slag compared with the batch method, which indicated that this method would be incompatible with mass processing for the purpose of extracting phosphorus in the bulk phase. In order to remove the Fe-species in the aqueous solution obtained by the batch method using 1.0 mol/L HNO3, which has been referred to as the “slag solution,” it was necessary to add calcium hydroxyapatite (CaHAp) to the slag solution. The optimal conditions for the removal of Fe-species using CaHAp were observed at a solution pH of ca. 1.5, which resulted in 100% removal of the Fe-species after 4 h. When the pH of the slag solution was adjusted to 7.0 after removing the Fe species, a pale pink solid sample was precipitated. The amounts of phosphate in the slag solution and in the pink solid were 3.5 and 42.0 mol%, respectively, indicating that the treatment suggested in the present study could be used for the recovery and enrichment of phosphate, that is, phosphorous, from dephosphorization slag.
