We have good news for you!
InVivos had started an initiative to study on the feasibility of recycling our Taconic Transfer Containers (TTC) without compromising quality features. Internal recycling studies conducted during the past few months have given encouraging results in terms of TTC material and animal welfare. Taconic has also given approval to re-use the TTC.
Some advantages that we have identified:
- Reduction in plastic usage
- Potential cost savings that could be transferred to customers
To explain the recycling process, used TTCs will be collected by our delivery staff. The used TTCs will then be processed by decontamination using disinfectants & autoclaving and delivered to various animal facilities. This initiative will be launched in the coming months and you would be notified on the launch.
