Abstract

TIME: 7:30AM PDT, 10:30AM EDT

As technology advances and globalization develops, our way of life has become more dependent on energy sources to power our everyday activities. The energy we use in our everyday life generates the majority of greenhouse gases in the form of CO2 emissions that are increasing our carbon footprint. CO2 emissions have a wearing effect on our atmosphere, resulting in environmental changes that may become detrimental to human life in the future. Whereas these effects are not always tangible, it is hard for some to justify making changes to the daily routine. Many have now become interested in the initiative to be green because financially there are also rewards in reducing energy consumption. The biotechnology industry has now recognized its role in this global initiative, and has focused on improving laboratory products to reduce energy consumption without depriving functionality or reproducibility.

Today, both manufacturers and researchers are making large strides in reducing the overall energy consumption for labs and their equipment. From choosing the right product, to maintaining that product, and recycling or re-using that product, there are many ways to give back to the environment without compromising on quality, performance, and reproducibility of important research. Let us all work together in keeping our blue planet green!
