CST is proud of our forward progress on UN COP 21 climate change goals as we are well into year three of our climate pledge. While the science behind our range of research-grade antibodies and reagents may be complex, the science and methodologies to combat climate change is very straightforward. It comes down to simple subtraction and addition, albeit on a tremendous scale.

Rooftop Solar Comes to CST


Posted by Elias W on Feb 28, 2018 6:15:00 AM

Let’s face it, we are an energy-intensive industry. From ultra low temperature freezers for storing products, to HVAC and lighting, plus lab equipment and fume hoods, it all adds up to a significant load. In 2017, CST’s two U.S. facilities used 7,677,140 kWh, which is the equivalent to the electrical consumption of 856 households! While creating that amount of energy on our own would require a golf course sized array of renewables, we can take steps to whittle down a percentage of energy consumption with solar panels on our roof.
