The paper gives results of a study to identify potential air emissions problems associated with the combustion of waste wood, primarily utility poles treated with pentachlorophenol (PCP) preservative, as a fuel for energy production in a boiler. The study emphasized the characterization of the products of incomplete combustion of PCP-treated waste wood.
