SUSTAINABLE LOW-TEMPERATURE PLASMA TECHNOLOGIES FOR CLEANING HISTORICAL AND ARCHAEOLOGICAL ARTEFACTS FROM NATURAL POLYMERS
SUSPLART is a Consortium of six partners from Romania and Slovak Republic that aims at establishing a non-thermal plasma technology for the treatment of natural polymeric materials and to develop a cost-effective, versatile, environmentally friendly, non-thermal plasma system for cleaning, disinfection and lifetime prolongation of cultural heritage objects
According to the Union of Slovak Museums, which can be considered representative of the Central-East European situation, over two thirds of museum objects in Slovakia are currently in need of intervention.
The SUSPLART plasma system complies with the current demand of conservation-restoration market by ensuring shorter treatment time and reduced costs compared with traditional treatments and avoiding both the excessive handling of the artefacts and use of chemicals with consequent increase of the occupational safety and health, and decrease of petroleum-based solvents and chemicals use.
