Abstract

A report on the impacts of chromated copper arsenate (CCA)-treated wood and potential concerns for the waste-to-energy (WTE) industry was presented. Environmental impacts and potential regulations on the ash quality and air emissions were discussed. It was proposed that combustion facilities may play an important role in the future management of the CCA-treated wood waste.
