Modular Plant for Extraction of Uranium from Phosphate

Adelaide Control Engineering are pleased to have worked alongside Urtek on the development of its PhosEnergy process pilot plant.


Urtek, a partnership between industry leaders Cameco and Uranium Equities Limited, are at the cutting edge of uranium extraction technology. Their innovative recovery process, the PhosEnergy process, facilitates the recovery of uranium as part of the manufacture of phosphate fertiliser. With the ability to be integrated into existing phosphoric acid facilities, as well as low operating costs, a high level of uranium recovery and reduced environmental impact, the PhosEnergy process is ground-breaking technology that taps into a hitherto unexploited resource.

Adelaide Control Engineering assisted Urtek with the design and production of its pilot processing plant with pilot plant trials.
