Phosphate mining health risks

The risk assessment of phosphate mining/processing industrial activities on the environment and human health is crucial to properly manage and minimize the risks over time. In this work, we studied the inhalation and dermal bioaccessibility of potentially toxic metals (PTM) in different particle-siz

  • ENVIRONMENTAL RISK ASSESSMENT OF PHOSPHATE

    ENVIRONMENTAL RISK ASSESSMENT OF PHOSPHATE

    By an integrated approach of environmental risk assessments on phosphate-treated mining sites, in situ soil treatments using phosphate amendments were documented to effectively reduce health and environmental risks of Pb-contaminated soils under field conditions through immobilization reactions. The efficacy of the risk reduction was long-term
