Environmental Impacts of Treated Wood
edited by Timothy G. Townsend

Environmental Impacts of Treated Wood how chemical leaching and transport of certain wood preservatives affect the environment, particularly chromated copper arsenate.

Features:

  • Discusses the impact of traditional wood preservatives on ecosystem health, soil contamination, and surface water
  • Examines ways to assess, monitor, and manage human risk due to exposure
  • Introduces alternative preservative compounds, comparable in strength but less toxic in certain applications
  • Presents an overview of the latest changes in international regulations
  • Contains state-of-the-art disposal technologies and waste management strategies that comply with new phase-out regulations in Europe, Asia, Oceania, and the U.S.
  • Features important contributions from renowned experts across many fields including aquatic toxicology, environmental management, engineering, statistics, medicine, and wood preservation and treated wood products
