A virtual, international learning experience to educate lab owners, operators, designers, engineers, builders, and users on lab sustainability and decarbonization technologies, projects, and programs.
Over the course of three days, you’ll have access to content from around the world to inform your next net-zero, green lab, or sustainable design project. You'll hear from Sustainable Laboratory Award winners, international representatives discussing global decarbonization perspectives, and experts in the lab sustainability field who have been some of the most popular speakers at the I2SL conference and internationally—all from the comfort of your home or office.
All sessions will be live over Zoom, with recordings available to all who register.

SLCan's Past President, Yvon Lachance (YLA Architecture inc.), will be moderating a session on carbon-neutral lab design on Wednesday, April 26, from 1:30 to 3:00 pm EST.
ASHRAE Toronto Chapter, in Partnership with SLCan
Airflow Management for Cleanroom Facilities by Kishor Khankari, Ph.D., Fellow ASHRAE
Monday, November 1st, 2021 - 6:00 PM to 7:30 PM including Q&A on ZOOM.
Online networking among attendees from 5:30 PM to 6:00 PM.
Clean spaces are developed for a variety of applications including pharmaceutical, healthcare, aerospace, microelectronics, food and beverages. The main goal of cleanroom application is to maintain high level of cleanliness in the spaces to minimize cross contamination. Air is the primary carrier of heat, moisture, and contaminants in cleanroom facilities. The flow path of supply air plays an important role in determining the air velocities, air temperatures, particle concentration, and flow path of airborne particles. These factors in turn determine the level of cleanliness and distribution of contaminants in the space. This presentation will first cover basics of cleanroom classifications, and source of contaminants, and then, will focus on the importance of HVAC configuration on airflow distribution and resulting flow path of airborne particles in cleanroom that affect the contaminant removal effectives. In addition, this presentation will also cover role of Air Changes per Hours (ACH), demand control ventilation, cleanroom airlocks, and dynamics of laminar diffusers in cleanrooms.
