The Lab of the Future
We at LabCycle believe that a sustainable lab is the lab of the future.
However, we understand that many researchers don’t know how this can be achieved, with the environmental footprint of academic research far outsizing that of standard commercial offices. So, here are some tips, courtesy of the Nature article (https://www.nature.com/articles/d41586-020-01368-8), on how you can reduce plastic usage and energy waste within your research practices.
- Reduce use of single use plastic
- Reduce energy usage
- Invest in a circular lab economy
LabCycle provides a circular economy for single use plastic consumables with their novel decontamination process, avoiding the energy intensive autoclave process. The plastic waste is the recycled into new consumables for your lab, heavily reducing the environmental footprint of numerous categories of lab.
