This survey aims to guide our researchers in their investigation of eco-friendly alternatives to commonly used materials in conservation that are toxic, considered pollutants, not recyclable, and/or have a high embodied energy cost. Where no green alternatives are found, our researchers will focus on finding ways of reusing, recycling, or otherwise extending the lives of the materials.
