IHP Transforms Unusable Phosphate Rock into Found Reserves
- Utilizes Low Quality Phosphate Rock Reserves
- In many cases, phosphate rock deemed as low quality and too costly to beneficiate for use in WAP is transformed into valuable phosphate bearing materials for use in IHP plants. IHP has a much higher threshold for aluminum, silica, iron, magnesium, and organic matter.
- Utilizes Various Phosphate Waste Materials
- Phosphate tailings and other phosphate bearing waste or reject materials deemed too dilute (low phosphorus concentration), or as having other characteristics that make such materials too costly to beneficiate for use in WAP, are often valuable phosphate bearing materials for use in IHP plants.
- Allows for the Development of Small Phosphate Mining Sites
- Phosphate reserve sites deemed too small to support viable WAP projects (insufficient economies of scale) are brought into play with IHP due to its attractive cost structure, even in relatively small scale implementations.
