Environmental Management Of Timber Preservation Plants Treating With CCA Waterborne Preservatives

The timber treatment industry depends upon the use of chemicals which are toxic to living organisms. The continued growth of the industry is dependent upon the industry managing these chemicals in a manner which protects the community and the natural environment from contamination by these chemicals. This report, by the amalgamation of information and ideas from the United States, Canada and New Zealand, is intended to provide information to the Australian preservation industry which may be incorporated into the environmental management of timber preservation plants.
