CFC's and Wei To

From: Scott K. Kellar <skellar>

Re: Nov. 15 Library Journal article "Chemicals in Deacidification
Process Face Ban from EPA"

The EPA is in the process of proposing a regulation banning CFC's in
aerosol products that would effectively put Wei T'o out of business. The
regulation is due in December and Richard Smith (maker of the above) is
putting out a plea to Libraries to back his argument that Wei T'o should
be given an exemption because 'no affordable substitutes exist', '90% of
the library/ archive/museum community uses his solution', 'our
heritage/history is at stake', etc.  Opinions on this issue may be
forwarded to David Lee, Chief, Stratosphere Ozone Protection Branch,
EPA, 401 M St. SW, Washington, DC 20460.  202-233-9131.  fax
202-233-9577.  (This notice should not be construed as an agreement or
endorsement of Mr. Smith's argument).
