Circular Economy Polycarbin Introduces Products Remade from Recycled Laboratory Plastic
Polycarbin has launched its ‘Closed-Loop Collection’ which comprises of products that have been remanufactured from recycled laboratory plastic. The move has been carried out to address the problem of ‘single use’ plastics as well as to reduce the need for more carbon-intensive virgin resins thereby creating a low-carbon economy.
San Francisco/USA – Polycarbin has recently announced the launch of the industry’s only line of low-impact laboratory products, the Closed-Loop Collection, on Thomas Scientific’s platform. Polycarbin’s product line is remanufactured using circular economy, recycled laboratory plastic reducing the need for more carbon-intensive virgin resins.
After witnessing 8 million tons of plastic waste generated during the Covid-19 pandemic, the life science industry has been forced to confront the consequences of a ‘single-use’ economy. Unsustainable lab product supply chains have been paralyzed amidst the pandemic leading to historic lead times, which in turn have interrupted innovation. Polycarbin, with the help of partners like Thomas Scientific, has created a more sustainable and efficient life science supply chain to meet the needs of scientists and the low-carbon economy of the future.
