BOSTON, MA, OCTOBER 2, 2012 – Consolidated Sterilizer Systems announced today that Arthur Trapotsis, President and CEO, will be presenting innovative ideas on sustainable steam sterilizers at the 2012 International Conference on Sustainable Laboratories: Choosing the Right Equipment. His presentation is entitled: Green Autoclaves – Water Saving Designs and Practices for Steam Sterilizers.

This 2012 National Institutes of Health (NIH) International Conference will be held in the Natcher Conference Center Auditorium on the NIH campus in Bethesda, MD, December 13-14 from 8:00am to 5:30pm. The conference’s focus this year is sustainable laboratory equipment, and Trapotsis will be presenting on green technology options available for laboratory steam sterilizers.

“I look forward to the NIH conference because it provides the opportunity to discuss specific utility and cost saving solutions that assist in creating environmentally sound laboratories,” Trapotsis said. “Facilities management is a major expense for any business today, however much of this can be offset by adopting green solutions. Consolidated is dedicated to helping architects, building designers, and facilities managers construct the greenest laboratories possible by providing the greenest autoclaves possible.”

One area of focus for reducing the carbon footprint of any laboratory steam sterilizer is water consumption. Consolidated’s WaterEco® systems reduce water consumption and contribute points to a building’s LEED rating. By incorporating a WaterEco® system into an autoclave, the total water consumed in a laboratory or vivarium facility will be reduced by 50-99%; this translates into millions of gallons saved over the useful life of the sterilizer. These systems efficiently collapse and condense steam and effluent from the autoclave. Available for gravity and pre-vacuum models, WaterEco® systems can be retrofitted on existing autoclaves or as a built-in feature for new autoclaves.

Consolidated Sterilizer Systems is an industry leader in development and manufacturing of gravity and pre-vacuum steam sterilizers with advanced programmable logic controllers configured for academic, life science, pharmaceutical and industrial applications.

Consolidated products are 100% made in the U.S.A. and built with non-proprietary parts to assure maximum uptime. For information visit
