Subject: Microbiological activity in PEG tanks

Microbiological activity in PEG tanks

From: Claire Peachey <peachey.claire>

Microbiological activity seems to be one of those unavoidable
problems with PEG solutions.  See the following article for ideas
and for many good references:

    Renos Mouzouras.
    "Micro-Organisms--Mechanisms of Control"
    in J.A. Spriggs, ed., A  Celebration of Wood
    WARP Occasional Paper 8, 1994.

The people at the Mary Rose seem to be doing a lot of work on this
subject. Also, there are some articles in the ICOM-WOAM (Waterlogged
Organic Archaeological Materials) publications.
