The recycling of wood waste is a possible solution to the global environmental concerns associated with waste. It also has economic benefits and potential environmental benefits given the global warming potential of architectural waste. The recycling method for wood waste treated with Chromated Copper Arsenate (CCA) has been a subject of concern of the architectural use of wood. The disposal of CCA-treated wood has become a serious issue in many countries, due to increasing
levels of contamination from chromium, copper and arsenic. Thus, the need to promote the recycling of the CCA treated wood waste after appropriate pre-treatment has been clearly described in the
Construction Materials Recycling Act from the Japanese Ministry of Land, Infrastructure and Transport.
