FUTURE TRENDS IN THE IMPORTATION AND HANDLING OF PHOSPHOROUS MATERIALS

Well over a million tons of phosphorus materials are used in the UK each year and the majority of these have to be produced from imported materials. In the past almost all imported phosphate material has been in the form of natural phosphate rock, but in future it is possible that the material may be imported in alternative forms. These include elemental phosphorus which is an inflammable solid, phosphoric acids which are corrosive liquids, and finished chemicals. Such developments would, if they came about, have a big effect on the handling and storage equipment required at ports. The National Ports Council therefore commissioned the Warren Spring Laboratory to survey the likely trends in requirements for phosphate material up to 1985, and to assess the form in which these might be imported. This paper summarises the report prepared for the Council.
