Erlab® sets a global benchmark by practicing green sustainability

As the world enters a phase of low-carbon, green and sustainable development, Erlab® filtration technology and filtering fume hoods have a new mission. Laboratories are reported to consume 5 to 10 times more energy than an average office building and generate an alarming amount of plastic waste and hazardous chemicals, with a single external fume hood using as much energy as 3.5 houses. Erlab® filtration technology and products are designed with energy efficiency and environmental protection in mind. Through continuous research and development, we have been able to save more than 90% of the energy used in ventilation without polluting the environment, thus successfully contributing to the construction of green “zero-energy” laboratories.

Erlab® Ductless Filtration Technology also serves as a green technology for global ecological protection, providing safe, flexible and sustainable solutions for laboratories in a wider range of industries such as government, chemicals, pharmaceuticals, hospitals, and research institutes. Its significant advantages in environmental friendliness and resource conservation have also been officially certified, entering the World Intellectual Property Organization’s WIPO Green Technology Database; products have been awarded LEED energy-saving certification; invited to participate in China’s Green Building Standards Development Summit; and participated in the Green Transformation Networking Luncheon during the visit, continuing to export positive impacts in the field of green and sustainable development.
