> Hello, All:
> I would like to know if anyone can help me with some waste reduction
> and P2 questions:
> Is there an alternative to urea formaldehyde-based glue in the plywood
> and interior plywood with hardwood overlays business.
> 	A wood treater would like to reduce the toxicity and preferably
> quantity of sludges generated from wood preservation.  Specifically,
> the company would like to focus on all the treatment chemicals,
> including Chromated Cooper Arsenate (CCA), Ammoniacal Cooper Zinc
> Arsenate (ACZA), and Ammoniacal Cooper Q.  The reason why they have
> not replaced CCA and ACZA with ACQ that would eliminate a federal
> hazardous waste is due to cost.  Besides economics, the company wants
> possible alternatives to make the wood look appealing to customers.
> 	Please let me know if you know or hear of any potential
> alternatives.  Thanks.
