SAVING WATER IN YOUR LAB

What's up with Green Labs?
Autoclave Retrofit is on the way...

For about $3,000, we could reduce autoclave water use from 1,500 gallons/day to 250 gallons/day by installing a recirculation system in one autoclave. We are now working with UCOP to help with funding for all 10 campuses.

Help us by taking this Autoclave User Survey!

CoC Water Reduction Efforts

  • By implementing fish pumps for water recycling, College of Chemistry labs are saving an estimated amount of 1,333,000 gallons of water per year. 

Dishwasher Reprogramming

  • Simply changing a few settings of the dishwasher in your lab could save 60 L of water every time.
  • Try out cycles #5 to #8 for water-savings and effective cleaning.

Policy on Sustainable Practices

  • Eliminating Single Pass Cooling is recommended by the International Institute for Sustainable Laboratories (formerly Labs 21), US Office of Energy Efficiency & Renewable Energy, and the EPA. Read more here!
