The common methods for fluoride removal from industrial wastewater involve chemical precipitation. This process generates large amounts of a water rich sludge requiring disposal with increasing costs. Due to the high water content and the low quality of the sludge, reuse of fluoride is not an economical option. The crystallization in a fluidized bed reactor offers an alternative to the conventional precipitation.
