Because of higher demands on wood, there is increased need for disused wood as well, predominantly used for energetic purposes or for production of particleboards. Disused wood is frequently polluted with different chemicals (surface coating, biocides, remains of the construction materials, etc.), causing troubles at the end of the service life. To analyze the presence of inorganic pollutants in Slovenian disused wood 30 samples were collected on the waste site of the Snaga Company in Ljubljana. They were qualitatively and quantitatively analyzed using X-ray fluorescent spectrometry (XRF). The results were compared to the concentrations of the pollutants in the boards made of disintegrated wood. Samples of the boards were gathered from Slovenian companies. The presence of Cl, Cr, Fe, Cu, Zn and Pb elements were found in disused wood and in some imported boards as well. This indicates that at least part of the polluted wood is used also for the production of particleboards.
