- ... BACKGROUND: This work further investigates fluoride removal from groundwater by induced crystallization in batch experiments and in a fluidized bed reactor (FBR). Phosphate rock (PR), which is an abundant ore and represents the basic raw material for the phosphatic fertilizer industry, was used as seed crystal in the induced crystallization process. RESULTS: Induced crystallization in FBR reduced ...
