Description: Spent chromated copper arsenate (CCA)-treated wood was liquefied in polyethylene glycol 400/glycerin (2:1 w/w). Sulfuric acid (95-98%) and ferrous salts (FeSO4•7H2O or FeCl2•4H2O) were used as catalysts and additives, respectively. The resulting liquefied CCA-treated wood was diluted with aqueous solvents and was then mixed with complexion/precipitation agents, followed by precipitation or filtration to remove the toxic metal-bearing sediment. As a result, more than 90% of Cu, Cr or As was removed.
Keywords: Chromated copper arsenate, detoxification, inductively coupled plasma, recycling, treated wood, wood liquefaction
