Virginia Tech Tackles Recycling Of Treated Lumber
The use of Chromated Copper Arsenic (CCA) treated wood has garnered a great deal of media attention over the past few years due to possible environmental and public safety concerns. "Another concern of this material has just recently gained attention from researchers, environmentalists, and government organizations," says Bob Smith, Virginia Tech's wood science and forest products associate professor in the College of Natural Resources. "That is the amount of CCA-treated wood being removed from people's homes and businesses and going to the nation's landfills."
