Subject: Mass deacidification

Mass deacidification

From: Kenneth E Harris <khar>
Date: Friday, March 20, 1998
The "mass deacidification" system that Nora Lockshin in inquiring
about (referred to in the NY times, 3/17/98) is actually the new
paper splitting equipment that was engineered by Ernst Becker's
engineering company in Germany.  This equipment enables the new
Zentrum fur Buch-Erhaltung (Center for Book Preservation) there to
split and reinforce paper; deacidification is one facet of this
treatment.  This newly-privatized (11/97) preservation center in
Germany, incorporating staff and equipment formerly operating at the
Deutsche Bucherei (German Library) in Leipzig, is offering a wide
range of preservation services for a fee, including deacidification
utilizing the Battelle equipment, conservation, reformatting, etc.
For more information, interested parties could request a copy of a
new brochure and other relevant literature from
