Treated Wood Products

The reuse of chemically Treated Railway Ties and Utility Poles is listed as a hazardous Class I Landfill waste. In partnership with government and institutional parties we are currently, conducting the essential clinical, laboratory, research in which to implement the best closed-loop practices in which to utilize this Wood waste material as an alternative, reusable wood product and or a Biomass waste-to-energy fuel.

* DISCLAIMER: our research Partnership companies, are a voluntary group of businesses interested in discovering the best technologies to divert from Class I Landfill Treated Wood waste materials and implement sound reuse. *Pending both Private, Provincial and Federal Governmental Approval.

The Challenge of Recycling Chemically Treated Wood Waste


The waste disposal and recycling industry has come a long way in a very short span of years  across CANADA, and now, with the larger companies and with both global and Canadian governments getting far more technology minded, conducting extensive research and having the latest technologies available to them, it’s becoming evident the time has come to make recommendations towards an economical and environmentally sound way of recycling chemically treated Wood waste materials.


Once you have a waste situation it means that you have a decision to make as to how you deal with it, and what costs, profit or because the only sound environmental option is reuse.
