The Green Labs program serves as a resource to help UT faculty, staff, and students run more environmentally-friendly labs without sacrificing the integrity of their research. We strive to increase the sustainability of labs on campus by helping researchers minimize waste, reduce water and energy consumption, and utilize the concepts of Green Chemistry.
The Green Labs program not only provides services to labs, such as our specialty recycling programs (i.e. nitrile gloves, Styrofoam, cold packs, plastic film), but also helps educate faculty, staff, and students about sustainable lab practices to ensure the continued success of the Green Labs program and help students obtain skills necessary for successfully entering the workforce. Our goal is to make running a sustainable, efficient lab easy, convenient, and rewarding.
