In the GREENART project, the focus is on new solutions, based on green and sustainable materials and methods, and on the development of advanced tools, to preserve and restore our cultural heritage.
In WP4 CIT and Chalmers will co-operate regarding Green consolidants for the strengthening of works of art. This is a continuation from earlier EU-projects where the strengthening of artefacts’ supports (canvas/paper/cardboard) has been done using silica and nanocellulose, combined with synthetic polyelectrolytes. Now the focus is to use natural macromolecules complemented with natural fibres as well for reinforcement still with a minor increase of the weight of the substrate, while not affecting the visual appearance.
