Many of you might have heard of the world speaking about ‘building a culture of sustainability’. We belong to an industry that produces toxins and other harmful vapours that affect the environment. It’s time we become environmental caretakers and do our part to stop environmental degradation. When we are talking about sustainability, we should take the call and try to reduce laboratory waste from our end (at least). With this, you cannot afford to not talk about recycling and repurposing hazardous materials. GD – one of the best fume cupboard manufacturers in India highlights 4 actions that can reduce lab waste. 4 Principles to Reduce Laboratory Waste 1. Invest in only essentials You should avoid purchasing lab equipment for a specific project. The simple thing behind this approach is to purchase equipment that will be used regularly. You can also think about sharing or lending your equipment or vice versa. This is a great way to reduce waste and utilise the equipment at its fullest potential. Make a habit of buying things that you genuinely need and would use for a long time. 2. Throw off all the clutter Avoid holding onto things that have been lying in the shell or drawer for a long time. This can help to release space hindering your fume cupboards. Just like sharing, unused equipment can be donated or rather sold to a resale company depending on its condition. Laboratory consumables can be donated to startups, incubators or schools who might be interested in second-hand equipment.

If you can’t reuse them, then try to recycle it to release space and avoid cluttering. 3. Inculcate good habits It would be wise of you to switch off extra lights or close the running tap to avoid wastage. Yes! It’s all about encouraging your employees or students to follow simple etiquettes when moving out of the laboratory. Try to reduce or eliminate things that aren’t needed. You can even look for other sustainable alternatives. 4. Be mindful This year and onwards, you need to opt for equipment based on its price, performance and environmental impact. Choose sustainable ways like buying products from resale and used-equipment vendors. Choose lab equipment made using renewable energy, recycled plastic and other recycled practices. Every purchasing decision should have a simple mindset to look for the life cycle impact on the environment. Just keep the above guidelines in mind and choose far-reaching implications for your lab that are easy on the environment.
