      Pentachlorophenol is released to the air by evaporation from treated wood surfaces and factory (chemical manufacturing plants and wood preservation plants) waste disposal. It enters surface water and groundwater from factories, wood-treatment facilities, and hazardous waste sites. Pam Magee, in Side Effects of Drugs Annual, Tumorigenicity. Pentachlorophenol was first registered as a wood preservative in the USA in , and has also been used in ropes, paints, adhesives, canvas, insulation, and brick walls. Use by the general public was restricted in , and the use of pentachlorophenol was limited to industrial areas.

    Pentachlorophenol (PCP) is an industrial wood preservative used mainly to treat utility poles and cross arms. EPA is currently reevaluating PCP as part of the Registration Review program (see Docket Number EPA-HQ-OPP at ). Basic Information. PCP has been used as a wood preservative since Pentachlorophenol (PCP) is a biocide used widely in the wood preservation industry. Laboratory results have successfully demonstrated bioremediation in soils and groundwater contaminated with pentachlorophenol. In fact, bioremediation hasFile Size: KB.

      Pentachlorophenol is a manufactured chemical which is a restricted use pesticide and is used industrially as a wood preservative for utility poles, railroad ties, and wharf pilings. Exposure to high levels of pentachlorophenol can cause increases in body temperature, liver effects, damage to the immune system, reproductive effects, and developmental effects. @article{osti_, title = {Biodegradability of pentachlorophenol in the environment: A literature review}, author = {Nakles, D}, abstractNote = {Pentachlorophenol has been widely used as a wood preserving agent for over 50 years to treat millions of electrical utility poles and crossarms. Treatment of poles with pentachlorophenol has in some cases resulted in contamination of soils.

Human Health Concerns. Human health effects from low PCP environmental concentration are unknown. Acute, high-dose exposure to PCP can induce a hypermetabolic state and excessive heat production. Effects--including hyperthermia, hypertension and metabolic acidosis--were observed in adults and children severely.

Wood preservation facilities, pentachlorophenol thermal: chapter F Previous page. Table of contents. Next page. Environmental Effects. PCP is an anthropogenic chemical that is ubiquitous in the Canadian environment as a result of extensive historical use in the wood preservation industry.

Impurities in technical-grade PCP, which may include tetrachlorophenol, trichlorophenols, hexachlorobenzene, polychlorinated dibenzo-p-dioxins (PCDDs), polychlorinated. Thermal wood preservation facility design and operational practices vary, and each facility has potential sources of emissions that may affect worker health and/or the environment.

The potential sources and releases are illustrated in Figure 1.

Environmental Protection Service, Pacific and Yukon Region. These include disposal areas for various commercial formulations used historically as slimicides and fungicides; storage areas for PCP-treated products (including the former process of lumber dipping or spraying with aqueous solutions of chlorophenates for sapstain control); Pentachlorophenol thermal wood preservation facilities book or uncontrolled process releases from wood preservation facilities; and chlorinated wastewaters, especially those.

Conservation and Protection.; Canada. Wood Preservation Industry Technical Steering Committee.; Envirochem Services.] -- As part of a federal strategy to protect the environment and human health from potentially toxic commercial.

Inthe Pest Management Regulatory Agency (PMRA) re-evaluated pentachlorophenol and approved its registration as a fungicide for industrial wood preservation.

Pentachlorophenol is registered for use on utility poles, railroad ties, sawn products, plywood, and pilings. The primary use of PCP is on utility poles. Pentachlorophenol, commonly referred to as penta, is the most commonly used preservative for utility poles and is the treatment of choice for as much as half of the wood poles used in North America.

This industrial strength preservative has been used for wood treating since the s and has achieved an impressive record of service performance and safe use. Workers at wood treatment facilities and lumber mills are estimated to breathe in about to mg/ day, and workers who handle treated lumber can absorb about 35 mg/day through the skin.

(1) Pentachlorophenol has been detected at low levels in drinking water and food. (1). Pentachlorophenol may be released to the environment as a result of its manufacture, storage, transport, or use as an industrial wood preservative. The United Nations Development Program (UNDP) reports that pentachlorophenol has been subject to control actions primarily because of high toxicity to human and animals.

Chapter 15 Wood Preservation Before a wood preservative can be approved for pressure treatment of structural members, it must be evaluated to ensure that it provides the necessary durability and that it does not greatly reduce the strength properties of the wood.

The EPA typically does not evaluate how well a wood pre-servative protects the wood. Chapter 2 Wood-Treating Sites and Their Cleanup | 11 BOX Creosote and Polycyclic Aromatic Hydrocarbons Creosote has been widely used as a preservative in the wood treatment industry for more than a cen-tury.

It is an oily, translucent, brown-to-black liquid with a sharp smoky or tarry odor. Creosote is. Pentachlorophenol (PCP) is an organochlorine compound used as a pesticide and a disinfectant. First produced in the s, it is marketed under many trade names. It can be found as pure PCP, or as the sodium salt of PCP, the latter which dissolves easily in water.

It can be biodegraded by some bacteria, including Sphingobium al formula: C₆HCl₅O. Franco Bulian, Jon A. Graystone, in Wood Coatings, Organic solvent preservatives. Organic solvent-carried preservatives include pentachlorophenol, tributyl tin oxide and copper and zinc naphthenates as active ingredients, carried in two former are under increasing environmental pressure, and as a group they are flammable with a high VOC.

Do not use pentachlorophenol-treated wood for farrowing or brooding facilities. Do not use treated wood under circumstances where the preservative may become a component of food or animal feed. Examples of such sites would be structures or containers for storing silage or food.

Do not use treated wood for cutting boards or countertops.

However, oxine copper can penetrate difficult-to-treat species, and is sometimes used to treat Douglas-fir used aboveground in wooden bridges and deck railings.

Oilborne oxine copper does not accelerate corrosion of metal fasteners relative to untreated wood. Pentachlorophenol Wood Preservatives. Pentachlorophenol is a restricted use pesticide and is used industrially as a wood preservative for utility poles, railroad ties, and wharf pilings.

Pentachlorophenol was widely used as wood preservative until when its use was restricted to certified applicators. Pentachlorophenol is considered a probable human carcinogen and exposure to high levels. The Guidance for Wood Preservation Facilities Reporting to the National Pollutant Release Inventory (referred to as the Guide) is intended only to assist owners and operators of wood preservative manufacturing and treatment facilities in reporting releases and transfers to the NPRI.Pentachlorophenol was widely used as a pesticide and wood preservative.

Sincethe purchase and use of pentachlorophenol has been restricted to certified applicators. It is no longer available to the general public.

It is still used industrially as a wood preservative .the treated wood. Treatment facilities in many areas of the United States use pentachlorophenol in heavy oil, making it another readily available wood preservative.

Pentachlorophenol is most effective when applied with a heavy solvent, but it performs well in lighter solvents for aboveground applications. Lighter solvents also pro.
