Discover How To Make Your Laboratory Sustainable
With Limited Time And Expertise

We all want to be more sustainable, right?

Reducing Plastic Waste / Saving Energy / Enhancing Procurement / Optimizing Experiments / Convincing Colleagues

Upcoming Event 10th of April Noon EST / 18:00 CEST:

The Future of Green Laboratories – How we will get there, CSRD and Regulations

– Which measures for sustainability can become obligatory –

– What is CSRD and which regulations could come? –

– How can one prepare to make laboratories greener? –

Upcoming Lesson:

How Plastics Are Recycled & What That Means For Researchers
(Lessons Are Sent To You Once A Week)

Is This For You?

What You Will Learn

Furthermore:

How to a sustainable lab safes money and prevents catastrophes | How to reduce energy consumption | How to reduce water consumption | How to improve safety | How to optimize experiments sustainably to be less impactful and more robust | How to improve procurement and orders | How to enhance statistical significance

And All Of That

Without Having Much Time

Without Much Effort

Without Much Expertise

Without Changing Your Research

Without Contamination

If You Think That Learning About Sustainability Is A Good Idea

We have two options for you

Feel free to take both or just one – it all for free : )

Sharing news & updates in sustainability at the beginning of each event to keep you up-to-date

Our Dialoges last 30 minutes, however, we stay as long as you have questions every time! Our written pieces are short and to the point.

13th of March – Sriram Satagopan & Patrick Penndorf discuss which steps everyone can take to reduce plastic waste, save energy or increase safety.

 

26th of March – Which items are the most sustainable? And how to find them is an issue for many scientists and lab-managers. We share how to optimize processes and identify greenwashing.

10th of April – Is sustainability a topic of the future? Just look at all the regulations and laws that are coming. If you want to make your laboratory and your career future proof, join us! Together with our partner from the Tomorrow University we discuss these topics and much more!

 

23rd of April – Would you like to know how big the environmental footprint of your group is? Together with Dr Elisa Garcia-Wilson we explore how groups and entire institutes can measure their footprint and share the tips and tricks she developed.

8th of Mai – one of the biggest challenges as being a scientist is the limited time we have. How should you also fit sustainability into that schedule? Exactly this question we will answer so that you can follow all your passions and where you should clearly take a step back.

 

21st of Mai – in the celebrity we often think about reducing plastic waste or turning off the lights. However, the field is much broader than this! We are happy to have our colleagues from Waters to discuss how methods such as Mass Spectrometry and HPLC can be made more sustainable.

12th of June – how exactly climate change might happen it’s heavily debated. What is clear though is that we need to prepare. Together with Dr. Ilyssa Gordon we will explore the effects on human health and how medical practice and education can help us to prepare for an uncertain future.

 

27th of June. The idea of green chemistry dates way back into the 1990s! We will give you an introduction, sharing what the 12 principles of green chemistry are and what you can do to make your work more sustainable.

10th of July – we all dream of a more sustainable laboratory, but how to get there? Together with Anna Schmitt who even got her laboratory certified we will share insights, experiences and advice on how to start and successfully drive change. Her personal story entails it all – from plastic waste to convincing colleagues.

 

25th of July – it is quite clear that and if from acetic or medical industry we need robust tools to track what we are doing and how we are doing it. However what are the newest advances and how can we potentially use them for sustainability purposes? These questions we will answer together with our friends from Axrum.

Why Are Doing This?

We are scientists ourselves and everybody struggled with the same issues…

We got too annoyed by the amount of solutions out there without anyone knowing about them – this is why we want to share them now instead of having them laying around in our drawers.

For Those Who Still Have Doubts

Is it feasible?

We share how to implement solutions in sterile conditions and without impairing fragile experiments.Furthermore, we share how you can convince colleagues. You do not need to break laws to become more sustainable.

Does it make a difference?

Although it might seem that saving a few pipette tips is not much, if we all would do it, we might be able to cut the approx. 20 Million tons of plastic waste labs produce every year in half. Not to mention that all the freezers (we know of) that were run optimally saved to together more than 43 Million kWh (you could drive around the world 3000 times with your car for the same energy).

Does it help science?

You might be concerned that sustainability is not what will bring your research on the next level. You have our word that many sustainable practices optimize processes so that experiments run faster, smoother and often become more robust. The year long developments in analytical chemistry have shown what advances are possible, especially with reference to chromatography.

And in case you are interested in saving money or increasing safety for scientists, we can tell you right away that we will have plenty of examples.

When will sustainability end?

Finally, if you are currently uncertain whether you should afford the time, we can only advise so given that future regulation and funding bodies requiring change are not far – but that also means that having some experiences in your CV or proposal will certainly not hurt!
