What is the impact of using acetic anhydride?

Our process uses acetic anhydride to change the wood itself – boosting the natural presence of acetyls which protect against the negative impacts of water on wood. It doesn’t stay in the wood as acetic anhydride, and our final product is verified as non-toxic: Cradle to Cradle Certified Gold with Platinum for Material Health.  In fact, acetic acid is a byproduct of the process, which we either sell for use in various other industries or upcycle back into acetic anhydride for a circular, closed loop process.
