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 ...
