Fabien Thibault, global manager, product and packaging sustainability at MilliporeSigma
Across industries, sustainability is becoming an increasing expectation. From reducing emissions to increasing recycling, both businesses and consumers are looking for ways in which they can reduce their environmental impact. But when it comes to products and packaging in the life science industry, developing sustainable solutions while meeting transit and safety regulation requirements is an ongoing challenge.
Now, imagine the complexity of executing this process for more than 300,000 products and 2.5 million SKUs along with associated packaging.
At VMware, we believe that technology can be a significant force for good by helping address the world’s societal challenges when integrated with existing processes and in partnership with the people working closest to the challenges. As the world relies on 12 million global nonprofits to continue tackling the planet’s most pressing problems, we also recognize many of these nonprofits struggle with realizing the benefits of technology.
Product stewardship covers the full lifespan of our equipment – from the supply chain to the customer’s job site to remanufacturing. This means taking active steps to reduce potential environmental, health and safety impacts, as well as optimizing operational quality and efficiency throughout the life of the product.

Sanofi Pasteur Vice President for New Vaccines R&D, Jim Tartaglia, PhD, was the guest speaker at the Capitol Rotunda in Harrisburg for the Undergraduate Research Council-PA’s 15th annual poster conference. The educational event allows the undergraduate students enrolled in Pennsylvania’s colleges and universities to showcase their research talents to the Commonwealth’s key decision-makers; all fields of research are encouraged.
They’ve come from UK, Japan, China, Australia and Brazil because it is a ground-breaking piece of equipment – the only one of its type in the world.
They’ve come out to TransCanada’s Gas Dynamic Test Facility, located in Didsbury, Alberta to view the results from a relatively recent addition to TransCanada’s research and development (R&D) program– a $300,000 high pressure shock tube that replicates, with a high degree of accuracy, the events following a rupture in a high-pressure natural gas pipeline.
