Lab Sustainability Webinar: Conserving Energy through Proper Cold Storage Management
Date / Time
March 17, 2021 - March 17, 2021
12:00 pm - 12:30 pm
Did you know that one ULT freezer can consume as much energy as a household every day? Labs are one of the most energy-intensive work places, due to the heavy-duty equipment, the airflow requirements of the space, and the around-the-clock operations. But groundbreaking research doesn’t have to come at such a high environmental cost, especially when many sustainable lab practices will also save your research time time and money!
This webinar will dive into the wild world of energy conservation in lab spaces, using the International Freezer Challenge as an introduction on how to use energy and lab equipment efficiently without compromising sample integrity. This webinar will also provide a brief overview of other ways to practice sustainability in a research setting, providing resources on where to get free labware, and further reading on topics such as green chemistry, materials waste, and water conservation.
This webinar is open to all; please forward this webinar to any who might be interested!
