Il Comitato Nazionale italiano di ICOM ha aderito all’appello di ICOM e ICOMOS per l’utilizzo del nitrogeno generato in situ per trattamenti anossici sul patrimonio culturale, sottoscrivendo la consultazione pubblica dell’ECHA (European Chemicals Agency) e allegandovi la lettera proposta da ICOM (scarica la lettera in PDF).
Dal sito di ICOM International:
Museums, memory institutions and heritage professionals in the European Union get a last chance to overturn an EU regulation banning the use of in-situ generated Nitrogen
As professional organizations devoted to the protection of cultural heritage, ICOM and ICOMOS encourage all stakeholders of cultural heritage in a joint call to raise their voice and to explain why in their opinion the EU regulation prohibiting the use of in-situ generated Nitrogen in anoxic treatment is endangering the protection of cultural heritage.
In-situ generated Nitrogen is commonly used for the preservation of invaluable collections and cultural objects.
To this end the European Chemicals Agency (ECHA) has launched a public consultation, inviting interested parties to provide information on potential alternatives available for the protection of cultural heritage. The information collected through the public consultation will be taken into account when deciding whether to grant or not a derogation.
This may be the last chance offered to the conservation community for quite a while. Deadline for submitting your statement is January 18th, 2020!
Please support our call for the use of in-situ generated Nitrogen in the EU public consultation, available on the ECHA (European Chemicals Agency) website.
