"Linking the Environment and Heritage Conservation: Life Cycle
    Assessment of Loans, Environmental Control, and Lights"
AIC's 41st Meeting
Thursday, May 30, Noon-2pm

The Committee on Sustainable Conservation Practice (CSCP) and
environmental engineer, Dr. Mathew Eckelman from Northeastern
University will present our collaborative project that examines the
sustainability of loans, exhibitions and environmental control from
cradle to grave. Dr. Eckelman's students worked closely with Museum
of Fine Arts, Boston staff and with the CSCP to devise and carry out
three life cycle assessment (LCA) projects that would be relevant to
the AIC community. Dr. Eckelman will present the LCA results and
recommendations at the Lunch Session.
