We learned a lot at the “Circular Lab of the Future” workshop organized by Green Labs Austria, Uni Wien and Merck yesterday.

We contributed to the workshop by collecting, recording and sorting all plastic material we used in a week in our lab. This was normalized by the number of scientists working and hours spend in the lab (a big thanks goes out to our PhD student Marie who did most of the organization, motivation and sorting). By visualizing how much plastic we use in our daily lab life, the topic of recycling became even more relevant for us.

Thanks for inviting us and for starting this initiative!
