Eco-Friendly Wood Treatment
A large wood products manufacturing company commissioned a research program with Princeton Keynes to identify alternative wood preservation treatments for its products. The client wanted an environmentally friendly alternative to the standard heavy-duty wood preservation approaches such as chromated arsenicals, pentachlorophenol, and creosote. Of course, the client needed a solution that would maintain optimum preservation performance in addition to maintaining production efficacy with whatever product was developed. Working with one of our university partners through its wood products engineering group, we were able to deliver a safe and long-lasting alternative wood treatment system.
