  • Patent number: 5002745
    Abstract: A process is described for the separation and recovery of phosphorus from phosphorus-dirt mixtures by adding a quaternary ammonium compound to the mixture, while it is under an aqueous cover, agitating same, and separating a lower phosphorus phase from an upper dirt phase. The mixtures are treated prior to addition of the quaternary ammonium compound, where required, by lowering their dirt to phosphorus levels sufficiently low to permit them to be destabilized.
