The presentation of museum collections inside showcases and frames is an important aspect of preventive conservation approaches and energy saving concepts. Due to the airtight sealing of these enclosures in order to tailor the internal microclimate to object-specific demands, material emissions and air quality have increasingly become the focus of attention in conservation science.
Previous studies have shown the emission potential of materials currently used in the museum environment to release a wide range of volatile organics into the atmosphere and thus contribute to high pollution levels within museum enclosures.
For the sustainable improvement of microclimates within cultural heritage objects and museum facilities, intensified research on new concepts for exhibition design needs to be perfomed with a special focus on the use of adsorbent media in order to optimize air quality and to prevent degradation of enclosed artifacts.
This article summarizes research results which have revealed the need for mitigation strategies, and presents ongoing research targeting the development of sustainable solutions.
