Abstract

The U.S. consumed about 525 kt of fluorspar in 1995, with more than 70 percent being used for the production of hydrofluoric acid. Fluorspar is also used for the production of aluminum and steel. About 558 kt of fluorspar was imported in 1995, with a further 186 kt made available from the National Defense Stockpile. The market in the U.S. is expected to grow as increasing use is made of fluorocarbons to replace chlorofluorocarbons.
