Green Flow – High Efficiency Fume Hoods

The potential environmental impacts were a concern of the Laborial, and early the company sought to find opportunities to reduce our footprint. With this concern, since 2015, Laborial is a formally certified company by standard ISO 14001 that provides practical tools to manage our environmental responsibilities. We assume a life cycle analyses as needed, as well as environmental challenges such as climate change.  The energy consumption of equipment and buildings is, increasingly, a concern present in daily routines, and is also important of the performance of the laboratory spaces. In any modern laboratory, fume cupboards are a fundamental element to realize tests of high hardness...

Small gestures, big consequences

Since its foundation, Amado & Almeida Santos had on its genesis the concern with the environment. Being a law firm, the behaviors that could be adopted with the goal to contribute to a better environment did not seem many. However, every day we try to be meticulous and improve to avoid waste. We are aware that our Planet is just one and that it is up to all of us, may it be in personal or professionals terms, to choose to do something.

Striving for Sustainability

The project was to evaluate, and implement and measure the benefits of, a solar power system for the Epona Winery in Woodland, WA, USA, towards the goal of reaching renewable energy independence. Motivation: Although electricity prices in this area are low, due to the primary source of generation being hydropower, we wanted to make the property fully energy-independent, using a renewable energy source. Wind is too mild here for wind power, and we don’t have enough moving water on the property for hydropower. So we focused on solar panels. Activities: We researched the competing solar panel installers/providers, and chose Green Light Solar for...

SAMSYS and Solar Panels

The electricity is one of the basic needs for our work at Samys, but we are conscious of the impact of an excessive energy consumption on the environment. Indeed, the main responsible for the production of greenhouse gases is energy, followed by the devastating deforestation. Conscious of its impact, we began to equate investing in renewable energies, such as solar panels that generate heat and electricity for self-consumption which would bring long-term advantages equally on a financial level and on invoice paper savings. Thus, we are aware of the fact that we are helping to protect the environment while keeping it clean since noxious gases such...
