SEF Roundtable: Greening Labs Through Recycling

Tuesday, August 12 2014
11:30 am – 1:30 pm

Location: MassBio, 300 Technology Square, 8th Floor, Cambridge, MA

Are you struggling with internal logistics for managing waste such as collecting, recycling and vendor constraints? To a large extent we use vast amounts of disposable equipment and materials. How do we translate our best intentions into a strong recycling outcome?

Come join us for our roundtable discussion. This will be a brainstorming session to address waste minimization and recycling enhancement for waste generated by our life sciences industry.

Who should attend? Employees of both large and small biotech/pharma companies with working laboratories and manufacturing suites.

We look forward to your input, stories, problems, and solutions!
