The article analyzes the information on modern developments in the utilization of phosphogypsum. Only a few directions give the prospect of large-scale use of both freshly formed phosphogypsum and phosphogypsum accumulated in dumps. Under the conditions of the Russian Federation, it is promising to use phosphogypsum for the production of building materials, as well as for agriculture, for reclamation of soil and the creation of mounds of a certain type. The possibility of using phosphogypsum as a raw material for obtaining rare-earth elements is shown.
