Delivering new insights at Lab Innovations
Director of laboratory sustainability consultancy Green Light Laboratories Andy Evans will present new insights into laboratory sustainability at the UK’s largest annual trade show for the laboratory industry, Lab Innovations.
Through the trade show’s Sustainable Laboratory, Evans will shed light on how laboratories can, and should, make their operations greener.
Lab Innovations’ Sustainable Laboratory will showcase cutting-edge equipment and processes used to reduce the laboratory industry’s environmental impact. The equipment exhibited has been accurately tested in partnership with renowned research institutes Imperial College London, the University of Bristol and the University of Oxford.
By testing products within a laboratory environment, the Sustainable Laboratory aims to demonstrate the impact that people can make on laboratory sustainability in three key ways — using new, innovative technology, selecting the best model for a specific requirement, and considering how changing human behaviour can positively impact running costs.
The Sustainable Laboratory will give operators insight into fume hood usage and configuration, cold storage practice, autoclave usage and changes in workflows, and advise on how laboratories can minimise their energy use, running costs and carbon emissions.
