CRU326/Repro.MS seminar 'Environmental Sustainability in the Lab' with Dr. Kerstin Hermuth-Kleinschmidt
Lab work is resource-intensive - a -80°C freezer consumes as much energy as a single-family home alone, and labs already generated nearly 2% of global plastic waste in 2014! Change seems difficult -80°C freezers cannot be turned off, and it is not easy to replace the many plastic consumables used in the lab.
Do you want to learn how to build a sustainable lab despite these challenges? Are you keen to know what you can do to reduce your own resource consumption?
After a very successful and fascinating session, we've collected the most important information and tips to make your research and laboratory work more sustainable. Feel free to download the following information folder in English as well as in German designed in cooperation with our guest-speaker Dr. Kerstin Hermuth-Kleinschmidt. Please do not hesitate to come back with your ideas and suggestions towards a more sustainable and responsible future!
