Achieving better sustainable lab practice
Join your peers on 4 & 5 November at Birmingham's NEC to make your lab greener, cleaner and more efficient!
Did you know that a typical new ULT freezer can consume as much electricity in a year as an average UK household* and it's estimated that research labs could produce 5.5 tonnes of plastic waste each year globally?**
If every lab achieved better sustainable practice, in the UK alone they would be saving signifiacnt costs every year, funding would go further, research could grow and the impact on the environment would be reduced.
But it's not always easy to know where to start. That's why Lab Innovations has a big focus on lab sustainability. Register now so you can visit the Sustainable Lab on the show floor, and join the free-to-attend conference programmes which will give you advice on sustainable best practice and tailored knowledge about how you can make improvements to your lab.
As well as hourly guided tours of the Sustainable Lab by Green Light Laboratories, we have lots of exciting content in the Royal Society of Chemistry theatre, focused on sustainability and the circular economy.
Seminar highlights include:
- Avoiding the Fatberg: Using Waste Cooking Oil in Polymer Chemistry - Dr Stuart Coles, Associate Professor, WMG, University of Warwick
- Reverse Engineering for a Tidier Planet - Dr Vivek Tandon, Founder and CEO, perPETual Technologies
