Method to Recycle and Reuse CCA-treated Wood

LSU AgCenter scientists have discovered a new way to detoxify and recycle chromate copper arsenate-treated wood. This technique removes the CCA from the wood, allowing both to be used again for other purposes, such as the production of polymer materials and chemicals. The process is fast, requires few materials and removes more total chemicals than other methods currently available.
