Garbage Out, Repurposing In

The carbon footprint of life sciences and biotech industries can be reduced by up to 80% by redeploying the equipment depending on its residual value and the customer needs. A waste plan is critical to sustaining this positive initiative. For the global life sciences market, savings on carbon fees as well as direct benefits to the customer can be as much as $2 billion annually. Circular Surplus Asset Management (CE-SAM) can be a business game-changer if it is integrated as part of an organization’s strategy. It is this premise that makes REUZEit a key contributor to long-term sustainability.

Circular-Economy

 

The Circular Economy

The REUZEit End-of-Life Asset Solutions platform establishes best practices for using, repurposing, and disposing of biotech and pharmaceutical equipment to control costs, reduce risk, and improve efficiency. Reclaiming medical equipment has an important role in lowering medical costs and reducing the carbon footprint of healthcare. Using recovered medical equipment generates less solid waste and helps to reduce pollution caused by the extraction and processing of raw materials. Also, when products are recycled, less energy is used for manufacturing, and fewer pollutants are emitted. This is the power of Reclaim, Reuse, Repurpose when done correctly. It’s what we call the “Lifecycle Extension.”

 

Good for Business, Good for Sustainability, Good for the Earth

When businesses reuse and redistribute equipment, they get the most out of their investment, maximizing productivity while also maximizing our planet’s precious resources. We provide the online solution and marketplace for businesses to search and redeploy their excess assets. Every time we REUZEit, we replace the need to strip, build, and buy new while also slowing the rate of manufacturing waste and pollution to manageable levels. That’s good for business, good for sustainable growth, and good for the earth.

There is an estimated 40% of medical equipment in developing countries that is no longer in use due to a lack of parts or service. Breakdowns can occur at any stage in a complex system of medical equipment recycling, resulting in a mismatch between aims and usability. The lack of adequate medical devices and the impact on health outcomes in low-income countries especially are becoming more

apparent as countries assess their health systems’ capabilities in response to a global pandemic. A supply chain that assures access to high-quality, safe, and dependable medical equipment is important to sustaining these health systems. Every time we REUZEit, we replace the need to strip, build, and buy new while also slowing the rate of manufacturing waste and pollution to manageable levels. That’s good for business, good for sustainable growth, and good for the earth. Together, with our global clients, REUZEit provides a physically executed active platform connecting big industry players together to redistribute equipment, recovering capital from surplus equipment, extending the useful lifespan of our equipment and our natural resources. As we build the future Circular Economy, we can reduce barriers of entry to support redistribution models and innovation in the developing world, reduce waste of valuable-but-toxic materials, and we’ll establish an economy that makes full use of the things we build.

Keeping a piece of equipment in use, either by redeploying within the company or selling in the used market, reduces greenhouse gas emissions by 23.1 times compared to recycling.

The GHG emissions reduction from reusing just one metric ton of equipment is the equivalent of:

  • Powering almost 32 households for one year
  • Removing over 57 passenger cars from the road for 1 year
  • Planting 4,361 tree seedlings and growing for 10 years

 

The coronavirus pandemic impacted not only healthcare around the world, but there are now an estimated 500,000 young people aged 16-24 who are out of work. Instead of propping up declining, polluting industries, we can benefit our planet and our future generations by investing in more green jobs. Young adults are often being taught, and given career advice on, jobs that likely will not exist a decade from now. Instead, we could be training them to succeed in a sustainable, circular economy while at the same time ensuring the future health of our planet. Keeping medical devices in circulation for as long as they are viable will relieve the massive amounts of medical waste produced daily and drive a circular economy. Someday, future generations will look back to now and say, “This is when industries began redistribution. This is when we finally changed our wasteful habits for a real solution; a circular economy to sustain our planet.”

 

Artist Mariano Chavez makes art from old medical equipment.“Last Life” equipment cannot be rehabilitated and is headed to the landfill despite our best efforts, unless someone rescues it. Up-cyclers, movie props, museums, artists…find one piece to take home, and you’ve made an impact!

Of the most recognized End-of-Life options for e-waste, recycling generates the least amount of greenhouse gases that fuel climate change and expand companies’ carbon footprint. Up to 566 times lower emissions compared to placing that equipment in a landfill!

 

 

 

What about individuals? What can we do to pitch in and help save the Earth? There are plenty of things you can do every day to help reduce your carbon footprint to make a less harmful impact on the environment. By purchasing reusable and recycled materials, consumers can help close the recycling circle, and encourage our neighbors to do the same.

Let’s face it; landfills are awful. They’re eyesores, smell terrible, attract vermin, and take up valuable space. Beyond these obvious traits, landfills are one of the chief sources of environmental degradation on this planet. It would be impossible, in fact, to cover all of the negative effects of landfills in a single post. Let’s look at the two biggest reasons landfills are so toxic and how REUZEit’s mission can reduce landfill waste.

How Landfills Affect Soil 

It’s safe to say that nearly everything that is thrown away ends up in landfills. And it’s also safe to say that most people don’t think about the chemical makeup of their trash. When waste breaks down, the toxins within seep directly into the ground. Even the most innocuous items – a child’s teddy bear or an old reclining chair – contain toxic compounds that can contaminate soil. 

Even if it didn’t take decades – or longer – for landfill waste to fully decompose, the ground underneath is rendered permanently toxic. Electronic waste, or e-waste, contributes in two ways: electronic devices and lab equipment have a long shelf life, and they contain compounds and elements (cadmium and mercury in particular) that are particularly toxic. 

How Landfills Affect Groundwater 

One of the most insidious by-products of landfills is a term that most people have never heard of: leachate. Much of the waste that ends up in a landfill will eventually begin breaking down. Precipitation – rain, snow, or even dew and fog – will filter through the decomposing waste and leach into the soil. Eventually, despite efforts to contain it, some of this contaminated water will enter the water table–the top layer of the earth’s groundwater supply). 

It’s not hard to see why this is bad. And sadly, e-waste has made it worse; the metals and plastics found in electronic devices, including lab equipment, contain high amounts of heavy metals and chemicals. 

Keeping Lab Equipment Out Of Landfills

We’ve noted that e-waste is a major contributor to landfill waste, and the problem is getting worse. But there is a silver lining; much, perhaps even most, of the lab equipment that organizations discard is able to be reused. One of the easiest ways to keep lab equipment out of landfills is by purchasing refurbished and surplus equipment. REUZEit works with our network of labs and companies to purchase surplus equipment, refurbish it so that it’s in perfect working order, and then sell it to other organizations. We’re committed to supporting a circular economy, one that reduces landfill waste by extending the working life of lab equipment. By doing so, we’re part of the global effort to preserve and protect our soil and groundwater. And when you purchase used lab equipment, you’re also making a positive impact.

From advances in online purchasing to a surge of new clientele, the future of used lab equipment distribution is bright for the informed and well-prepared. Read on for a glimpse into what distributors can expect and incorporate in the coming years of change and growth. 

80/20 Will Ring True

Amongst large lab equipment manufacturers, most of their revenue comes from a slim portion of their clients. This means that nowadays, when online shopping trumps the art of cold calling, smaller accounts are no longer a primary target since it’s simply too expensive to call on less lucrative leads. Since these smaller customers will continue to be nixed from the radar of large manufacturers, proactive used lab equipment distributors are anticipated to act on the opportunity to gain some market share. We can expect more manufacturers to start leaning towards the pricing and service distinctive of independent distributors.

The Rise of Independent Used Lab Equipment Distribution

Amazon may have a hold on over 90% of online product searches, though it’s ultimately up to the consumer to find what they’re looking for. Manufacturers are now recognizing the power of independent lab equipment distribution, most notably due to their power in bringing products to market without succumbing to the monopolies of modern healthcare. Additionally, independent distributors typically employ tight-knit teams who nurture and value client relationships – rather than simply hunting down the next best lead. 

REUZEit: The All-in-One Solution for Used and Surplus Lab and Medical Equipment

Lab equipment is constantly evolving and aiding the research used to make new discoveries in fields such as medicine, biotechnology, and science. As technology advances, the need for more sophisticated equipment inevitably increases, and unfortunately so does the cost. Luckily, there are other methods to obtain the best equipment to meet your needs at the lab without maxing out your budget. Here are some key strategies to help you find affordable lab equipment!

Special Offers and Sales

When purchasing from lab equipment distributors, make sure to check multiple websites for the item you’re interested in. This allows you to compare prices and figure out which distributor has the best offer. Special offers are typically reserved for older lab supplies rather than new models, but don’t count these out! Just because a piece of lab equipment is older does not mean it is not worth investing in. 

Used Lab Equipment

Purchasing used laboratory equipment is one of the most budget-friendly ways to stock your lab while still using high-quality lab equipment. This can sometimes be a tricky process, due to the risks associated with potentially faulty equipment. For this reason, we recommend purchasing from a trusted seller that specializes in used lab supplies, like REUZEit. If you decide to purchase used lab equipment, reading our Tips for Buying Used Lab Equipment post is a great way to start. 

Refurbished and Surplus Lab Equipment

Purchasing refurbished or surplus lab equipment is another option that can save you money. Refurbished equipment is equipment that started to malfunction and was sent back to the manufacturer or vendor for repair. After the repairs have been performed, the item is generally as good as new, in terms of performance. Due to this process, these items are then restocked and sold at a discounted rate. If you’re in need of new models of equipment, this is the best way to get a good price on the newest technology.

When a lab or manufacturer has a surplus of science lab equipment, they will either auction it off to another seller or sell it themselves. They often sell it at a discounted rate in order to free up space in their lab or warehouse, or to move the lab equipment quickly. Surplus lab equipment is typically new or lightly used. At REUZEit, you can find tons of surplus lab equipment for sale at discounted prices! 

How REUZEit Can Save You Money
