2014 Lunch & Learn – Scale down and you’ll reduce waste.
Do you want to reduce the environmental impact of your lab?
Not sure where to start? Worried about the costs?
Your experiments may be eligible for Green Research Funding!
Come to the Green Research Lunch & Learn: Small Scale Experimentation
The purpose of the Lunch and Learn is to overview the EIS program and show others how the EIS has led to small scaling of experimentation in an engineering lab. Further, the small scaling has resulted in a successful application to the Green Research Fund as the experiment was downsized a second time. These changes have resulted in a reduction in chemical cost and hazardous waste production while having a positive impact on environmental impact.
Friday, June 20th, 12-1 pm
Tim Abbott – Graduate student
* Small scaling of experimentation
Cherie Michels – Advisor, Safety & Environment
* Introduction & Overview of green research funding
* Environmental Impact Statements (EIS) and Conclusion
Please bring your lunch – fruit and veggie platter, coffee, and dessert will be supplied.
We will cover general information on Greening your research, including past projects and available funding, and we will highlight a lab on campus that has reduced their hazardous waste production by 75%.
