A recent Pike study predicts rapid growth for the green chemistry industry. What was a $2.8 billion industry in 2011 is expected to become a $100 billion industry by 2020. The report looked into three major segments of the market: “waste minimization in conventional synthetic chemical processes, green replacements for conventional chemical products, and the use of renewable feedstocks to produce chemicals and materials with smaller environmental footprints than those produced by current processes.”
For research scientists looking to do great research and be a little "greener" with the tools, equipment and supplies that they are using in the lab there are solutions available. The question then is what's greener than what, and where do I get that greener stuff to use for my research.
Researchers across the country are looking for greener, friendlier techniques and supplies to use in their science research. Biotechnology Calendar, Inc. is inviting lab product and service companies to showcase the newest green products to researchers at our upcoming 2013 event series. Biotechnology Calendar, Inc. will provide additional visibility for green product companies in a separate section at our events, thus allowing life science researchers to see the newest, greenest, and friendliest products for their use in their current research programs.
Let's make an effort to be green this holiday season. We all have little things we do in the lab that save a little time or a little money, or do a little bit to help the planet.

As you may know, researchers are becoming more aware of the environment and are looking for greener products to use in their bioscience research so that they can reduce their level of environmental impact.

Are you interested in keeping up with science meetings and conferences?
Green Chemistry in the life science research field is a little bit of a misnomer. It should really be called "Greener Chemistry". Marketing your product as "green" in a life science field doesn't mean a lot by itself anymore. Ask yourself,
"What makes my product more environmentally friendly than every other product in the life science field?"
In addition to following the principles of green chemistry, lab equipment manufacturers can consider the following:
- Is the product greener than it was yesterday, last week, last year, ten years ago?
- Is the product greener than your competitor's product is? How about your other competitors?
- Is the manufacturing process now faster, cleaner, or more energy efficient?
- Is the experimental procedure using your product now greener, cleaner or more energy efficient?
