Green Labs at Duke is working with the Dean of Arts and Sciences to encourage the purchase of Stirling Ultracold Freezers for A&S labs. A Green Labs/FMD study has shown Stirling freezers to consume roughly half the electricity of the control freezer and to also generate less heat. The Dean will contribute $3000 toward the cost of a freezer.
