Abstract
This proposal details a research program to investigate the potential of a CCA-treated wood recycling system based on liquefied wood technology. Liquification converts wood to a viscous liquid by using organic reagents and low temperatures. This CCA removal technology will liquify CCA-treated wood in the presence of organic solvents at a mild temperature with an acidic catalyst.
