Cosmogenic Be can provide a substantial background to low threshold and low counting rate scintillation detectors such as the Borexino solar neutrino detector. The efficacy of various 7Be removal techniques is examined. Distillation appears to be the best with a reduction factor of at least 1000 per stage.
