ICOM & ICOMOS unite in call to allow the use of Nitrogen for the protection of cultural heritage
In-situ generated Nitrogen is commonly used for the preservation of invaluable collections and cultural objects. In comparison to other much more dangerous and toxic methods, the use of Nitrogen has many advantages: The method can be used for the treatment of almost all cultural objects and has the most favorable environmental and health profile.
This may be the last chance offered to the conservation community for quite a while. Deadline for submitting your statement is January 18th, 2020!
