I am organizing a symposium on laboratory sustainability for the Division of Chemical Health and Safety of the American Chemical Society national meeting in San Francisco this August. The overall theme of the meeting is "Chemistry and Global Stewardship". More information about the meeting can be found
The description of the symposium is below; presenters will receive a one day registration to the ACS meeting so that you can attend other exhibits and presentations at the meeting, which is likely to have many discussions of Green Chemistry, sustainability science, chemical education and other topics of interest to this group. It would be great to have a collection of Green Labs presentations from a variety of points of view (e.g. chemists, sustainability professionals, EHS professionals) on a variety of GL topics (e.g. energy conservation, green chemistry, water conservation, etc.).
Let me know if you have any questions about this.
Greening Our Laboratories: How and Why?
Organized by Ralph Stuart, rstuart**At_Symbol_Here**cornell.edu
Laboratory spaces use significantly more energy than other types of spaces. In order to maintain the financial and environmental sustainability of laboratory work, many institutions are looking at opportunities for reducing energy use in laboratories while maintaining a safe work environment. This symposium will address this issue from a variety of perspectives.
Share your thoughts in San Francisco by submitting your abstract at http://abstracts.acs.org
