Sustainable Tubes from Cooking Oil Waste

Aug 31 2022

Reduce, Reuse, Recycle

Eppendorf is no longer only focusing only on the development of new products, but also on new manufacturing materials. In line with the ‘Reduce, Reuse, Recycle’ concept, the main goal is to produce polymer products in a much more sustainable way without compromising the guaranteed product quality and performance needed in increasingly demanding research.

Sustainability without compromising quality and performance

The new generation of tubes ‘Eppendorf Tubes® BioBased’ is made from 90% ‘bio-circular’, renewable-based feedstook (recycled e.g. from food oil wastes and residues) plus 10% fossil-based feedstock. Thus, these tubes in the sizes 5.0 mL, 15 mL, 25 mL and 50 mL with screw cap are made of certified polypropylene based on renewable, recycled raw materials and are called ‘BioBased’.

Accredited certification to sustainability standards

The Consumable production centre in Oldenburg/Germany meets the requirements of the ISCC PLUS (International Sustainability & Carbon Certification) certification system. Additionally, sustainability of the tubes is certified by ‘My Green Lab®’ with ‘ACT Certificates’ (Accountability, Consistency, Transparency).
