Most laboratory spaces use large quantities of water primarily to achieve their larger air conditioning systems loads. Nevertheless, a laboratory’s water efficiency can also be improved by making few changes into lab operations.

IBEC will promote the responsible use of water.

Reduce water consumption. Reduce single-pass cooling.

Limit the use of distilled and deionized water.

Actions taken:

Labels to indicate the type of water of each tap in the laboratories.

Bottled water fountains from the administration areas have been removed in order to decrease plastic use.

Awareness campaigns sent monthly by Core Facilities to the whole IBEC community:
