Sustainability in the Lab- Recording

Laboratory operations are energy and resource intensive. For some years now, awareness has been increasing and solutions such as sustainable laboratory buildings and equipment that use less energy and resources are being worked on. But what about consumables in the lab? Approximately 5.5 million tons of plastic waste are produced every year in life sciences laboratories alone, according to a study from 2015.

In addition, a closer look will be taken at the supply chain and the question discussed where improvements could be achieved.
