Greening Laboratories

March 21st, 2013

The Motivation

Green Chemistry holds the promise to create healthier and less wasteful products, processes, and working environments. But what if the labs in which chemicals are used and created are themselves unhealthy and wasteful? Laboratories serve as logical places to start implementing greener practices.

PPRC is partnering with the Green Lab Alliance and others to promote best practices and resources for improving the sustainability of lab environments.
