Fluoride in Magadi Salts

Project Details

Description

High Fluoride intakes via water is common in dry or volcanic regions in Africa. This calamity is aggravated with the use of Magadi (sodium hydrogen carbonate) with high Fluoride
concentrations.
The Ph.D. project covers the occurrence of contaminated Magadi, the crystallization processes in the alkaline lakes, and the technical possibilities for purifying Magadi for human consumption.
