Hey, I'm currently working on a project, involving the use of eggshell waste among others (shellfish, fish bones) being used to synthesize hydroxyapatite [ Ca₁₀(PO₄)₆(OH)₂ ] which can be used in the defluoridation of wastewater from industries, in addition to the ongoing usage of hydroxyapatite in the medical industry for bone tissue and dental procedures.
My question is that to what extent is this feasible? is there any specific process that can be utilized to improve the current methods? Any inputs are appreciated.defluoridation diagram.png
