PAM group wins University’s Lab-based Sustainability Award

The PAM group have won one of the university’s first LEAF (Laboratory Efficiency Assessment Framework) awards.

LEAF is a new tool developed by researchers at University College London to help improve the carbon footprint of lab-based research. The PAM group’s efforts have been led by Dr Bethan Charles and we have been hard at work over the past few months to implement energy-saving ideas, such as replacing our wasteful oil baths with aluminium heating blocks. We won a Bronze LEAF award for our efforts, and we’re currently working towards Silver.
