This is the first event of the fall 2022 Sustainability Seminar Series, titled “Safe and sustainable research: it all starts in the lab” by the KAUST HSE Research Safety Team.

Abstract:
Did you know that a single fume hood can consume as much energy as three homes? Our labs are where we hope to realize the next big development that could advance our efforts to protect our planet and make life better for billions. But shouldn’t we be doing research in a sustainable way? Come and learn more about how we can perform our research in a sustainable manner that protects us and our research. The HSE Research Safety Team will lead a session where we will learn more about our labs, their impacts and how we can better utilize these amazing resources. We will then brainstorm ideas for our labs in an engaging and interactive session.
This event is organized by Students for Sustainability, with the support of the Office of Student Life and the Office of Sustainability. Should you have any questions, please contact s.square@kaust.edu.sa.
