Pennsylvania's emergency management agency needs suggestions for
environmentally friendly ways of disposing of 220,000 old paper blankets
They have been treated with fire retardant and will only char round the
edges. A 1993 analysis by the Department of Environmental Protection
Tributyl ester of phosphoric acid as the primary contaminant
Small amounts of organic acids and esters thereof
Small amounts of polynuclear aromatic hydrocarbon
Due to a rope edging they will not shred but can be ground in a tub grinder.
Any suggestions eagerly awaited!
