Remediation of Pentachlorophenol (PCP) in Biodiesel versus Diesel Carriers
2011 - IRG/WP 11-50279
Biodiesel is believed to be more environmentally friendly than petroleum based diesel when used as a carrier for impregnation of PCP into wood products for protecting wood from decay. A six month study was conducted to evaluate the remediation of PCP in biodiesel versus diesel in soil. Different percentages of biodiesel, diesel and PCP were mixed with clean soil from a forested site and tested. Sa...

Effect of Biodiesel on the Efficacy of Pentachlorophenol Treated Wood
2012 - IRG/WP 12-30584
Pentachlorophenol (PCP) is widely used as a wood preservative for utility poles and other wood products. Recently, it has been proposed that a modified PCP carrier system based on a diesel/biodiesel mixture should be used in place of the conventional diesel/KB3 carrier, but there is some question as to whether or not this modified carrier system can provide the same service life for wood products ...

Leaching Potential of selected Mississippi Soils Contaminated with Pentachlorophenol (PCP) and Chromated Copper Arsenic (CCA)
2013 - IRG/WP 13-50293
Desorption of pentachlorophenol (PCP), and chromated copper arsenic (CCA) from five Mississippi soil regions was studied. The soils tested were Blackland Prairie (Dorman), the Interior Flatwoods (Winston), the Delta, the Coastal Plains (Wiggins) and the Loess soil (Raymond). Soils were contaminated with 500 ppm and 1000ppm PCP and 1000 ppm for CCA respectively. Toxicity Characteristic Leaching Pro...
