Totally 272 m³ (62.7 t) of CCA treated wood was chipped and incinerated at Jalasjärvi Gasification Plant. On average the whole batch of chips contained 57 kg copper, 95 kg chromium and 76 kg arsenic. During the 56 h combustion trial the measured arsenic emission to the air was 76 g in total. Copper and chromium emissions were less than 1 g. The results were used for LCA of copper, chrome and arsenic treated utility poles.
