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 ...

Effect of biodiesel on Performance of Isothiazolone
2013 - IRG/WP 13-30625
Biodiesel has a number of attractive properties, including the ability to readily solubilize a number of biocides and a tendency to reduce odors associated with other solvents such as petroleum-based diesel. Biodiesels, however, have also been implicated in reduced performance of some, but not all preservatives. It is important to assess the effects of biodiesel on each biocide. Soil block tests ...
