About this book
Responding to a heightened awareness of the possible adverse effect of treated wood, Environmental Impacts of Treated Wood presents research results and fundamental information on regulations, wood treatment alternatives, documentation of environmental releases as well as the impact of treated wood on water, soil, and organisms. An entire section is devoted to assessing and managing human health effects. Other discussion describes state-of-the-art disposal technologies, introduce new preservative compounds, and present recent developments related to phase outs of certain treated wood products.
