Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) 12:

Sorbus Biomedical’s Cell Cultivation Systems contribute to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) 12, which focuses on responsible consumption and production, through several key strategies and technological innovations.

Sorbus Biomedical’s Cell Cultivation Systems support SDG 12 by improving resource efficiency, adopting sustainable manufacturing practices, promoting responsible R&D, and providing long-lasting, high-quality equipment. These efforts not only help reduce the environmental impact of biomedical research and production but also set a standard for sustainability in the biotechnology industry.

Resource Efficiency
Automation and Precision
• Reduced Waste: automated systems minimize human error and ensure precise use of reagents and materials, reducing waste.
• Optimized Resource Use: advanced monitoring and control systems allow for optimal use of energy, water, and other resources, enhancing overall efficiency.

Sustainable Practices
Energy Efficiency
• Energy-Efficient Equipment: the cultivation systems are designed to be energy-efficient, using advanced technologies to minimize power consumption while maintaining optimal cell culture conditions.
• Renewable Energy Integration: where possible, these systems can be integrated with renewable energy sources to further reduce their carbon footprint.
Minimizing Environmental Impact
• Closed System Design: reduces the risk of contamination and subsequent need for resource-intensive decontamination processes.
• Biodegradable and Recyclable Materials: use of materials that are biodegradable or recyclable in the construction of their systems and consumables, reducing environmental impact.

Innovation and Infrastructure
Advanced Manufacturing Techniques
• Smart Manufacturing: implementing smart manufacturing techniques that are both resource-efficient and environmentally friendly.
• Sustainable Materials: using sustainable materials in the production of equipment and components.
