Conserve energy every day

Think strategically about your energy use. Creating an energy-conscious work environment is important to the biotech industry:


  • Educate technicians to keep fume hood sashes closed when they're not in use. Consider installing or converting to variable-air-volume (VAV) fume hoods.
  • Install face velocity setback and limit for fume hoods.
  • Install low-pressure drop air delivery systems to reduce air changes per hour while maintaining safety codes and guidelines.
  • Install an air-flow setback in your lab to save energy when the lab's not in use.
