Lab safety & energy-efficiency competition
20 FEB 2019
ATLATL will be the platform to host the competition for lab safety & energy-efficiency in 2019.
E-3 Green Technology (Shanghai) Co., Ltd. ("E-3") proposed a global initiative to international organizations in the laboratory ventilation equipment industry to hold the first "Shanghai International Laboratory Ventilation Equipment Open" in 2019.
As the event initiator, Dr. Tang Ming , Chairman & CEO of E-3, extended invitations to a group of potential participants as the new year begins. These invitees include market leaders or companies with unique technologies in the laboratory ventilation equipment industry, from major markets of China, India, Europe and the United States.
The international invitees include: WALDNER (Germany), Renggli (Switzerland), Kewaunee (U.S.), and Hamilton (U.S.), all are reputable market leaders in the laboratory equipment and fume hood industry. Additional invitees include: Phoenix Controls (U.S.), renowned for pioneering and bringing the venturi valve onto the market; TEL-UK (U.K.) and TROX (Germany), known for their advanced single-blade dampers and airflow control solutions; and Citizen Industries, one of India's top laboratory equipment manufacturer.
China's domestic invitees include: TMOON (Guangdong), Isong Control (Shanghai), ZEPHIRUS (Shanghai), ZKTL Lab (Shanghai), all have high-end products of single-blade damper, venturi valve, or fume hood; SUNWAY (Beijing) with their advanced low-flow fume hoods; and LBT (Jiangsu) as well as LONTON (Shandong), both with unique active supply-air fume hood technologies.
In the invitation letters, Dr. Tang Ming emphasized that for decades, in order to achieve the goal of laboratory safety and energy-efficiency, experts and enterprises around the world have made unremitting explorations. Despite such efforts, the current global state of laboratories are still concerning with much room left for improvement. Laboratories in developed countries are generally safe with comfortable working environments at the expense of high HVAC energy consumption. Most laboratories in developing markets, such as China and India, sacrifice worker safety and indoor comfort due to inadequate HVAC. Thus fundamental changes for improvement are urgently needed.
In recent years, many new product technologies have surfaced in the laboratory ventilation equipment industry. In order to promote a healthy development of innovative solutions for safer and energy-efficient laboratories, E-3 proposes to global laboratory equipment enterprises to hold a "Shanghai International Laboratory Ventilation Equipment Open" in 2019.
Dr. Tang Ming proposed to the invitees to form the event's "Planning Committee", with a coordination meeting to be held in Shanghai during late February 2019 to discuss in details. If the coordination meeting is successful, the formal registration will be held in March 2019. From April to June 2019, participant teams will complete the construction of their respective model laboratories, and the competition will commence with real-time monitoring and metering from July to September 2019. During the event, global experts in the field of laboratory environmental control and sustainability will also be invited to gather in Shanghai for a seminar to discuss solutions for laboratory safety and energy-efficiency in tandem with the actual on-going results of the competition.
