    Have you been working on the development of more environmentally friendly alternatives for wood preservation?

    Key characteristics of the successful technology:
    - Can guarantee a long-term protection against fungi and other organisms that attack the wood
    - Contains non –toxic chemicals for the environment and safe to handle (contains no biocides or heavy metals)
    - Ideally, offers flame retardant property
    - Preferably, water based type preservatives
    - Can be applied by various ways such as immersion methods or pressure treatment techniques
    - Industrial scale-up demonstrated

    I'm afraid not, though I have heard of "tung oil". There is a list of natural preservatives in this Wiki article, but no doubt you've already seen it:
